Range-topping premium SUV to launch next year in US; bound for Australia around 2025.

Jeep will take on the BMW iX with the Wagoneer S, a 440kW premium electric SUV that will lead the American brand’s electric future.

Built predominantly for US buyers, the 5m-long premium SUV, which could also be considered as an electrified rival to the Range Rover Sport, will arrive in 2025.

It will launch first in its home country in 2024, before limited numbers are shipped to both left- and right-hand-drive markets, including Australia.

Arriving with a range of around 600km, the Wagoneer S will top a new line-up for Jeep in Australia, which includes the already Jeep Avenger and 2025-bound Jeep Recon.

This could include a fourth EV that CEO Christian Meunier has described as a look into the future of the brand – which is set to go EV-only in Europe by 2030.

The Wagoneer S will be one of the first models to sit on parent company Stellantis’s new STLA Large architecture. This mirrors the much-anticipated Wrangler-esq Recon, which it will share the majority of its underpinnings with.

The range-topper will arrive with a raft of premium features, the brand promises. It will pack 440kW and be able to sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.5sec. What kit it will use to do this has yet to be confirmed.

In the US, Jeep already sells the Wagoneer and current-range-topping Grand Wagoneer after reviving the storied nameplate – first used in 1962 – in 2020 as the base for a new family of premium SUVs.
