Jeep has confirmed the arrival of its first EV for the United States, with the 2025 Wagoneer S set to hit the road in the fall of 2024.
A teaser image shows an identical front end to the original Wagoneer S concept shown in 2022.
Jeep also touted the same 600-hp output and claimed 3.5-second 60-mph time as it first did in 2022.
Jeep has finally confirmed the arrival of its first electric vehicle, the Wagoneer S, which will go on sale in the fall of this year. Jeep first showed images of a concept version of the Wagoneer S in 2022, along with a boxy EV SUV called the Recon. At the time, Jeep had referred to the "Wagoneer S" moniker as a codename, but it now appears that Jeep is committed to that title for its first EV.
Although its name is shared with the gargantuan gas-powered Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, the Wagoneer S is smaller, with Jeep referring to it as a mid-size model. The latest image Jeep shared of the front end shrouded in darkness appears to show all of the same design cues as the original concept images, including the illuminated grille.
Jeep also reiterated the same specifications originally announced, with the Wagoneer S targeting a 60-mph time of 3.5 seconds thanks to a 600-horsepower powertrain. Interestingly, the 400-mile range that Jeep originally claimed in 2022 was absent from the most recent announcement.
Sales will start in the U.S. in the fall of 2024, and official information should come soon. Jeep is referring to the Wagoneer S as its first global EV, suggesting that the Recon, which was also due in 2024, may be delayed. Jeep already sells the tiny Avenger with an electric powertrain in Europe. Stellantis, Jeep's parent company, has been slow in transitioning to electric vehicles, and none of the automaker's brands currently sells an EV in the United States. That is set to change in 2024 with the arrival of the Ram 1500 REV and ProMaster EV. Fiat will also add an electric 500 hatchback to its U.S. fleet, while Dodge recently teased the upcoming electric Charger.
