Look at the Glass on That: Your Regularly Scheduled Jeep Grand Wagoneer Update Arrives
It’s a day of the week, which means it’s time for another installment in Jeep’s ongoing teaser campaign for its upcoming full-size SUVs. Thankfully, the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, or at least the latter model, will see the light of day on September 3rd.
The images released by Jeep on Friday show additional glitter and acres of roof glass, but the vehicle itself might not be exactly what greets buyers next year.
Nothing strikes fear into hopeful hearts like the appearance of the word “concept,” but that’s apparently what the vehicle being teased is. As noted by Motor1, the Facebook Live caption for next week’s reveal cites a “Wagoneer Concept,” leading us to hope the unwrapped vehicle closely mirrors the production model. From what we’ve seen, the Wagoneer/Jeep Wagoneer needn’t be a piece of vaporware. Production stars in the second quarter of 2021; as such, the vehicle revealed on September 3rd will likely be more of a pre-production prototype than something fanciful and exaggerated.
Zoom in on that lengthy glass roof and you’ll see a map of Detroit laid over top of it. Alrighty. The middle second-row seatback also seems to be folded down for the convenience of outer-seat passengers, or it’s a complete console.
As for the second image, chrome-laden vents and brushed metal dash sides lends the interior an upscale, retro flair. It also works well with what we’ve seen of the vehicle/concept’s exceptionally bright grille.
You’ll also note an inscription of the vehicle’s outline, underscored by “Est. 1963” — the model’s birth date.
With six days to go before Jeep reveals the vehicle in full, we wager’s there still an opportunity for at least one additional teaser.

- Canam23 I moved to Los Angeles in 1968 and the air was barely breathable. Thanks to the mandating of pollution controls and the work of the Air Quality Management District, it's 100% better today. When the first pollution targets were set in the 70's, Detroit moaned that it would be impossible to achieve, meanwhile the Japanese sat down and figured out how to do it. As a result of the constant strengthening of the anti pollution laws, our air is much less dangerous for our children. Furthermore, engineering has now created very clean, powerful and efficient engines. So Stellantis, I'm not buying it.
- Random1 So several of the interboro crossings are cheap: Brooklyn bridge, Manhattan bridge, Madison Ave, Willis/3rd Ave. One or two others I think.$18 is weirdly cheap, but "early bird" all-day parking is easily under $25 at many, if not most, places. That garage is actually on 62nd St, so I might be able to still drive in post-congestion, but I can't imagine they won't jack up that rate when the time comes, they're gonna be over run.
- FreedMike Right, the fact that Jeep sales are down this year has nothing to do with it...nope. See FlyersFan's post above for the figures. They're ugly. Now, you'd think that a fact like this might be in this story, but a headline like "Jeep announces layoffs because its' sales are down" just doesn't have enought red meat to toss out. But toss "California" into the mix and voila! Political food fight. And given the political proclivities of a large bloc of Stellantis' U.S. customers, why not blame the big bad gubmint? And by the way, if Jeep has a beef with California, what's with this ad?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VegskIOcU7Y
- 3SpeedAutomatic Drove a rental Renegade in Florida. Tigershark engine vibrated like crazy at stoplights. Someone had bumped the plastic cladding and parts were ready to fly off at speed. If you could pick one up on the cheap, you would give to your kid for college or trade school. Once they were earning a steady paycheck, it would be traded in a flash!!🚗🚗🚗
