We first heard about the all-electric Jeep Wagoneer S a while back, and the automaker recently detailed specs and performance for the sleek SUV. While it will retain some of the brand’s off-road prowess, the S will also sport breathtaking acceleration and more screens than are probably necessary.


Jeep will launch the Wagoneer S at its EV-certified dealerships later this year, with a starting price of $71,995, and it said that the SUV would qualify for federal tax credits. It promises more than 300 miles of range, 600 horsepower, 617 pound-feet of torque, and a 3.4-second 0-60 mph time. The Selec-Terrain traction control system also brings selectable drive modes for varying terrain and conditions.

The S runs on a 400-volt architecture and carries a 100-kWh battery pack that can be charged from 20 to 80 percent in 23 minutes. Jeep will also include public charging credits or a 48-amp Level 2 home charger with every purchase.


Though it bears the Wagoneer name, the S is considerably curvier, which gives it a drag coefficient of just 0.29, the lowest of any Jeep model yet. The Launch Edition, which lands later this year, comes with 20-inch gloss-black wheels, satin exterior accents, and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof.


The upscale interior has 64-color selectable LED ambient lighting, and the Launch Edition gets a 19-speaker McIntosh sound system with a 1,200-watt amp and 12-inch subwoofer. Front passengers see more than 45 inches of display screen, including a 10.25-inch passenger display, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and a 12.3-inch touchscreen running Uconnect 5.

Jeep also equips a range of safety tech, including an active driving assistance system, intersection collision assist, driver attention monitoring, and more.

    It's not for me but it looks nice for someone else.

    Judging by the atrocious reliability record and general lemony snicket nature of the ICE Wagoneer and GC, this makes about as much sense as the electrically-challenged Brit marques going EV. Upper trim interiors on the GW & GC are a case of 'nice at 10 paces' (or glammed up press photos). In person there are low-rent plastics throughout at critical touch points (center tunnel, seat & mirror controls on the door panel, for instance) where there is unnerving flex akin to a toy. Adding more screens when the main Uconnect screen is already flaky doesn't bode well.
