Jeep Wagoneer S coming to the UK with 592bhp and 300-mile range

Jeep has revealed full details of its new Wagoneer S, which is poised to take on BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz in the premium electric SUV market.

The Wagoneer S is the American brand’s second electric model, after the Avenger, but its first pure EV to be sold outside Europe, including in its home country.

Based on the new Stellantis STLA Large platform that will also underpin future Maserati and Alfa Romeo cars, the Wagoneer S is a D-segment SUV looking to challenge premium models such as the Audi Q6, BMW iX and Mercedes-Benz EQC SUV. It will launch in the US and Canada later this year before reaching Europe and the UK in 2025.

So far, Jeep has only revealed details of the high-performance launch edition. This will use two motors to provide 592bhp and 590lb ft of torque. That’s enough to get the 2.5-tonne Wagoneer from standstill to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds, making it the quickest Jeep in history.

Providing the energy for that is a 100kWh battery that promises a range of up to 300 miles and DC charging that will take it from 5-80% in under half an hour. The Wagoneer S uses a three-in-one electric drive module on each axle and can decouple the front motor in low-demand periods to improve efficiency.

Visually, there’s a clear link to other Jeeps in elements like the illuminated seven-bar grille, but the Wagoneer is smoother and more streamlined in aid of efficiency and is the brand’s most aerodynamic car ever.

Inside there is a riot of screens – up to 45 inches of digital real estate, according to Jeep. Drivers get a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch central touchscreen to manage most major functions, plus a climate control touchscreen. Alongside that, owners can specify a third 10.25-inch passenger display that’s mounted directly in front of the passenger and mirrors the Uconnect 5 operating system of the main screen.

Jeep says that in keeping with the Wagoneer’s position as the brand’s most luxurious models it will bring a ‘world-class’ interior with sustainable features. Highlights include metal accents and ceramic coated touchpoints, while features such as the suede-effect headliner are made from recycled materials. Owners will also get a 19-speaker 1,160-Watt sound system from McIntosh.

There’s no word on pricing but given the Wagonner’s expected rivals, it’s likely to be in the region of £70,000 to £80,000.
