Jeep Developing New Three-Row SUV, Electrified Wagoneer And Grand Wagoneer

As part of a series of investments at its assembly sites in Michigan, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has confirmed a selection of new SUV models.

The automaker  first confirmed that the iconic Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer were returning way back in 2011. Now, we have confirmation that these two models will be constructed at FCA’s Warren Truck assembly plant, re-tooled as part of a $1.5 billion investment at the site.

As the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will be built at Warren Truck, they’re expected to be body-on-frame vehicles. Jeep has also confirmed that plug-in hybrid versions of both vehicles will be built and the automaker will even have the flexibility to build all-electric variants if it wants to.

Jeep wants to cash-in on the SUV bonanza

In addition to the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, Jeep has announced that it’s working on an all-new three-row full-size SUV that will come to life at its Mack Avenue Engine Complex. Few details have been offered about this vehicle, other than the fact that it will be sold as a plug-in hybrid. Production of this new three-row SUV will start by the end of 2020.

FCA announced a slew of new models back in June 2018 with the release of a product roadmap through to the year 2022. This roadmap confirmed an E-segment three-row SUV but failed to provide us with any more information.

“Three years ago, FCA set a course to grow our profitability based on the strength of the Jeep and Ram brands by realigning our U.S. manufacturing operations,” FCA chief executive Mike Manley said.

“Today’s announcement represents the next step in that strategy. It allows Jeep to enter two white space segments that offer significant margin opportunities and will enable new electrified Jeep products, including at least four plug-in hybrid vehicles and the flexibility to produce fully battery-electric vehicles.”
