Jeep Wrangler Pickup, Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer Confirmed

The three models – Wrangler pickup, Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer have been officially confirmed, and they will enter the production. FCA announced that they would assemble their Wrangler pickup in Ohio, while the other two models would be produced in Michigan. These long-anticipated vehicles should find its way to the assembly line by 2024.

Moreover, FCA stated that $1 billion would be invested in Warren Truck Assembly and Toledo Assembly Complex plants, which would create jobs for 2,000 people additionally. This also means that the production of Ram Heavy Duty will move back to the States from Mexico and the reason for this move is heavy criticism American carmakers receive from President-elect Donald Trump.

Because of the numerous spy photos we could have assumed that Jeep was about to produce the next-gen Wrangler in a pickup truck form and now we have an official confirmation. FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne said that the Wagoneer models are essential for the company. He declared: “The expansion of our Jeep lineup has been and continues to be the key pillar of our strategy. In addition, these all-new products will reach new consumers, as well as those that have been part of the Jeep tradition.”

The range-topper trim of the Grand Wagoneer should be very upscale, and it might as well compete against vehicles such as Range Rover while it is speculated that the price of the Jeep’s top trim will go over $100,000. However, we are not certain when exactly this model will hit the market. The Jeep Wagoneer will be smaller and cheaper, and luxury will be the key difference between these two vehicles.

Some time ago, Jeep boss Mike Manley told Automotive News: “The Wagoneer name represents, historically, the pinnacle of premium for the Jeep world … you could imagine the use of Wagoneer to denote a really premium vehicle, and Grand Wagoneer takes it to the very next level.”
