If you are looking for a lot of rock-solid details and specific features for the upcoming 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, then we are sorry to have to disappoint. While we would love to spill all the information about what the Grand Wagoneer will have going on, the reality is that we do not yet know much about this impressive upcoming SUV. What we do know, however, is enough to get us excited to see Jeep offer full market representation, with at least one model that should be perfect for just about anyone, thanks to the development of this large, three-row SUV.
From what we have seen, this will be a true SUV, not a crossover, with a body-on-frame design based on the Ram 1500. We expect that at least two of the Ram 1500’s engines will be available in the Grand Wagoneer, and representatives at Jeep have strongly suggested that a hybrid engine will be available too––if not at launch, then fairly soon thereafter. It seems quite likely that the Grand Wagoneer will be available with all-wheel drive standard, and rear-wheel drive could be an option for those that want it.
Beyond that, we really do not yet know much about what the 2021 Grand Wagoneer will have to offer, though Jeep has revealed that two versions will be available: the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer. While most signs point to it being a 2021 model year release, it is possible that it will actually launch next year and end up as the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, but only time will tell. Until then, be sure to check back here often for updated news and features about what the Grand Wagoneer will have to offer. And come visit us at Orange Coast CJDRF to see the full lineup of modern Jeep vehicles.
Even though we do not have a huge number of specific details about what to expect with the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, there is enough to go on for now and form some pretty well-founded guesses. Since the Grand Wagoneer is based on the Ram 1500 platform, it is pretty likely that some of the current Ram 1500 engines will be available on the Jeep model. All of this is subject to change, of course, and should be considered speculation and predictions, so keep that in mind.
It is quite likely that the 3.6L V6 engine that currently comes standard in the Ram 1500 will be the base engine in the Grand Wagoneer. The Ram 1500's eTorque hybrid system that includes a small electric motor on the engine will probably be standard by the time the 2021 model rolls out, so you should expect to see that on starting models.
We would not at all be surprised to see the powerful 5.7L HEMI V8 engine currently available on the 1500 offered on the Jeep SUV too, which would give you an option with tremendous power. Finally, the 3.0L Diesel V6 engine that is available on the Ram 1500 could also be an option that we would not be surprised to see on the Grand Wagoneer.
One thing particularly of note is that insiders at Jeep have said, on more than one occasion, that they plan for a hybrid engine to be available on the 2021 Grand Wagoneer. While the eTorque mild hybrid system on the standard V6 engine could be what they are referring to, we would be quite surprised if there was not also an option for a more fully committed hybrid engine. If this is not available with the first wave of Grand Wagoneer models, then it is a pretty safe bet that we will see it come either later in the year or for the following model year.
As a Jeep vehicle, you would probably expect the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer to offer excellent off-road performance, and so do we. Specific details are not yet available, of course, but we would be downright shocked if there is not at least some kind of focus on off-road functionality and performance. It is a Jeep, after all, and most sources indicate that all-wheel drive is likely to be standard on the Grand Wagoneer, with an option for rear-wheel drive for people that want it.
In looking at other Jeep models like the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, you can see that the initial off-road features are only enhanced by at least one off-road-focused trim level. We expect to see something similar to the Grand Wagoneer (perhaps a Trailhawk trim?) in order to deliver the level of Jeep trail mastery that we have all come to expect. Exactly what sort of off-road features this could include are unknown, but a locking rear differential, off-road-tuned suspension, and all-terrain off-road tires are all pretty likely for such a trim.
As far as we have seen, no spy photos or leaks have made their way to the public showing what the inside of the upcoming 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will look like. That being said, we can still speculate wildly and make some educated guesses based on what we know. Since the Grand Wagoneer is based on the Ram 1500 platform, that could be a good place to start for what we might see on the inside.
Ram trucks are among the industry leaders for incredible technology and comfort features, and if Jeep wants to compete with big names like the Lincoln Navigator and Range Rover, then it will certainly need to make a statement. Judging by the inside of the recently updated Ram 1500, we should expect to see a large infotainment screen, fantastic options for entertainment and audio, and other great available features. We would not be surprised to see things like a wireless charging area, a gorgeous driver information display, and perhaps a head-up display as well when the Grand Wagoneer comes rolling out.
Similarly, we expect to see the latest and most impressive selection of safety features available on the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Since this model is at least a year away from release, the available safety features on it should meet or even surpass what is available right now. Features like forward collision alert, emergency braking, front and rear park assist, and a blind spot warning are all quite likely to be available based on current safety trends. While we will have to wait and see exactly what the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer delivers in terms of overall safety, we have no doubts that it will be impressive.
If you are interested in a large Jeep SUV, then you should know that two different ones are coming, and they are going to be called the “Wagoneer” and the “Grand Wagoneer.” Both of these models will be built on the Ram 1500 truck platform with a true SUV body-on-frame design and tremendous performance. They are expected to have three rows of seating and will probably have most of the same features and options available, though we would not be surprised to see some unique styling or badges on each of them.
The primary difference between the upcoming Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer is in the size of the wheelbase. “Wheelbase” refers to the distance from the front wheels to the rear wheels––a larger or longer wheelbase typically means one vehicle is bigger than another and offers more passenger room. With these two Jeep models, the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will have a longer wheelbase than the standard Wagoneer. Even though it is not expected to have more seating, this larger size will give you more room for cargo and for your passengers.
