Way back in September 2022, GM Authority reported that the Jeep Wagoneer S – among several other Stellantis products – would eventually be released to broaden Stellantis’ all-electric portfolio in North America. Now, it appears as though this EV rival to General Motors’ electric vehicles will be launched later this year.
Set to be released in the United States in Fall 2024, the Jeep Wagoneer S will be first global all-electric vehicle sold under the Jeep brand. Following its U.S. debut, the Wagoneer S will be launched in other markets around the world.
It’s worth noting that although exterior dimensions have yet to be released, the Wagoneer S could potentially rival the Cadillac Lyriq and Cadillac Vistiq, among the Ultium-based EVs announced thus far.
As a reminder, the Wagoneer S will be a premium offering, and will be highlighted by a dual-motor, AWD drivetrain developing up to 600 horsepower and delivering an estimated zero to 60 mph time of 3.5 seconds. Range targets stand at 400 miles, while a Select-Terrain traction management system will be equipped as standard. Notably, a bevy of other “advanced Jeep brand-focused technology and impressive performance credentials” will also be available. Production will take place at a yet-unnamed North American facility.
Other Stellantis electric vehicles set to be launched in the near future include the Jeep Recon and Jeep Avenger.
“This is a forward-thinking strategy to help ensure millions of Jeep fans around the world continue to have a planet to explore, embrace and protect,” former Jeep CEO Christian Meunier stated in a September 2022 press release when the Wagoneer S was unveiled for the first time. “Electrification is great for our brand, making it even more capable, exciting, sustainable and fun.”
Of course, General Motors recently unveiled the 2026 Cadillac Vistiq, to which the Wagoneer could potentially compete against. Positioned above the Cadillac Lyriq in the Caddy EV lineup, not too much is known about the Vistiq at present. However, we do know that the three-row all-electric crossover will ride on the GM BEV3 platform, and will be powered by Ultium battery and Ultium Drive motor technologies.
