Comes out in 2020....A lot of hp and torque. Pretty impressive. The only question is the price and I'm sure it will cost too much for most people. This might sway a few reservation (maybe 2....lol) holders especially if Ford is extending build dates until 2022...

I just saw the video. They mentioned an easter egg thats easy to find on the wagoneer...OMG they are paying attention......

This is all pretty funny if you ask me. Jeep is doing exactly what any competitor would do when their competition has been absent from the market for 25 years and you have 4+ years to prepare for their Re-entry: simply take the airspace with proven products you can touch, see, drive and buy now, and adding variants. It’s not panic, it is planning.

They are already in the market, they are beating Ford to the punch with not just the Hybrid, but the Hybrid before the regular Bronco comes off the line, and we’ll see more interesting variants (Mojave, Mohavicon, V8, etc.).

While we’re at it, if you want to tow more than 3500lbs, go crawling, and take the top and doors off - there is exactly one vehicle available: a Gladiator.

Yes it is driven partially due to pending competition. But hey who wins? We do because we have more choices of adventure vehicles and capabilities to choose from, and at some point in 2022 that competition will start getting us more capability for the money.

Wagoneer is a minivan, total failure. Though I guess it will look good alongside the 6 other minivans not named Wrangler/Gladiator.

The 4XE looks interesting for sure but is it offered only in 4 door? Also when the battery runs out then I have a feeling the gas engine is not going to be that powerful. The hype is kind of hard to get through.

If the 8 cyl happens I will end my disdain for all things Jeep in a skinny second. I don’t even care. whoever gives me the first open top 4x4 V8 has my money.

It makes more sense as a Chrysler, but I think they're going to kill Chrysler soon. They know they can't build a portfolio to compete with the likes of Cadillac and Lincoln. Jeep is a really strong brand that can have a niche in the luxury market. It's actually a smart move, IMO.
Hey! Chrysler makes some S.E.X.Y. minivans. Everytime I see a soccer-mom driving one, All I think about is if my Bronco will fit up in that ;)

That wagoneer is ugly af IMO. Total miss, I was expecting it to be way more retro. I know it wasn’t going to be exactly like this because obviously it’s a full size but I was expecting at least for it to take some cues.

The hybrid wrangler is cool but Chrysler has never been a huge hybrid manufacturer. I would have zero interest in one outside the warranty period.
Total miss. The old school one is so sick. This could have been the bronco competition. A little bigger with IFS, and third row seating. Or compete with the land cruiser. The new grill looks good, but that’s about it. Otherwise, it’s pretty vanilla.

Grand Wagoneer was never going to compete with the Bronco, that's not their intended market. They want a share of the people buying loaded Navigators and Escalades and such, and the significantly higher profit margin they bring.

Just have to say, I'm disappointed there's no green color

Jeep brought it back as a gloss (Gecko)
