New Jeep Wagoneer S electric SUV to target BMW iX and Audi e-tron

Jeep claims the all-electric Wagoneer S will come with 400 miles of range

Jeep’s electrified future will take some big steps in the next few years as the firm plans to roll out four all-new, pure-electric models - one of which will be the new Wagoneer S. It’ll be positioned as a premium EV SUV and a flagship model for Jeep’s electric lineup.

In the premium EV SUV market, the Wagoneer S will have plenty of rivals to go up against, including the BMW iX, Audi e-tron, Mercedes EQS SUV and even from within the Stellantis stable with the upcoming Maserati Folgore Grecale.

On the outside, it looks like the Wagoneer S will share little with the current Jeep Wagoneer. At the front, there’s - of course - the seven-slat grille (which can be lit-up) accompanied by a full-width light-bar and ‘Wagoneer’ badging above it. 

The squared-off wheel arches are also a typical Jeep design trait, but towards the rear, the huge spoiler is designed to channel air down for extra aerodynamic efficiency. There’s also another full-width light-bar back there, too. 

We don’t know what the cabin will be like in the Wagoneer S, but it could take some inspiration from the newly-launched Wagoneer. With potential for eight seats, that could mean it utilising up to seven screens inside with a three-screen set-up up front.

Underpinning the Wagoneer S will be the new STLA Large architecture from Stellantis. The bespoke EV platform can allow for battery sizes over 100kWh. Jeep claims the Wagoneer S will offer around 400 miles of range and with the aid of four-wheel drive and 592bhp a 0-60mph time of around 3.5 seconds. No details on charging capacity have been revealed yet. 

Although we've already seen how the production version will look after Stellantis accidentally leaked images on its own Facebook page, a full public reveal will take place in 2024. The Wagoneer S will then start production in North America later this year, with European sales commencing in 2025.
