Jeep Grand Wagoneer Hits The Market in 2019

In 2011, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles publicly confirmed that they were going to assemble a new 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer which was supposed to arrive three years after that, but for some reason, we are still waiting for this model.

In that same year, FCA created a new five-year plan, according to which, late 2018 is the date we were going to see the new Grand Wagoneer. Neither Grand Wagoneer nor the Dodge Dart SRT is coming our way, but there is a silver lining this time – FCA is just a little late with the production.

We are not going to wait another five years for the new model, as it is supposed to arrive sometime in mid-2019, according to Automotive News. The new Jeep Grand Wagoneer is going to share the platform with the Ram 1500, as it climbs its way to be one of the most upscale models in the entire segment. This architecture will turn the luxurious Grand Wagoneer into a capable off-road vehicle with excellent towing capacity.

Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition are going to challenge the base Wagoneer, whereas, in the luxury department, Grand Wagoneer will fight against the Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, and GMC Yukon Denali.

An additional info surfaced, and according to that report, FCA found that their plans to update the aging Grand Cherokee are useless, so they disregarded that idea. Instead of that, the American carmaker is going to launch a new, redesigned vehicle, thus improving the fuel economy of the car which is also going to shed some weight.

Meanwhile, an upgraded Renegade model is expected to come in the second half of 2018, while FCA wants to add an entry-level A-segment model to the lineup, according to the report. This A-segment model is going to be “sold exclusively outside North America, where mini vehicles predominate.”
