Jeep has produced many successful models in their history. One of their most famous SUV’s is certainly Grad Cherokee. Based on that model, Jeep has developed all new Wagoneer. After long period of speculations and rumors, Jeep has officially confirmed release of 2018 Jeep Wagoneer.
For now, it looks like future Wagoneer will compete in the segment with cars such as Range Rover and Cayenne. There is still nothing much to say about market success for this model. It should come with unibody chassis design, which was also used on Maserati Levante. Considering its platform and premium segment positioning, it could easily become one of the best-selling SUV’s in the U.S. We still do not have official pictures of the new 2018 Wagoneer. Some rumors say that it will be wider, longer and even taller than Levante. First it was expected that Jeep will release two new versions of Wagoneer, but now it will most probably offer only one type. Regardless of that, future Wagoneer will be capable to accommodate up to 7 passengers in very comfortable and spacious, and at the same time luxurious interior.
2018 Jeep Wagoneer engine specs and performance
Speaking of 2018 Wagoneer engine lineup, it will probably be taken from the Maserati as well as the platform. This offer will certainly differentiate on the European market compared to the U.S. In the States, it could get 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbocharged petrol engine from Levante. Second engine choice could be either their own big V8, which is unlikely, or one of the Ferrari engines. This will be strong and powerful 3.8-litre V8 powertrain developing more than 500 horsepower. Jeep should offer both all-wheel and rear-wheel drive. Power will be sent to the wheels through ZF-8 speed automatic transmission. 2018 Wagoneer fuel economy specs are unavailable at this point.
2018 Jeep Wagoneer release date and price review
2018 Jeep Wagoneer release date is still very far away from the present time. We will inform you about future announcements made by the Jeep officials. 2018 Wagoner price for the base model should start somewhere near the Cherokee price.
