Jeep has unveiled new, longer-wheelbase L models of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer sport utilities. These largest of Jeeps are now 12 inches (30.5 cm) longer. Also unveiled were new turbocharged engine options.

The Wagoneer L grows to 226.7 inches (576 cm), adding 7 inches (17.8 cm) to its wheelbase (now 130 in / 330.2 cm). This growth adds more passenger and cargo volume inside, especially in the third row. Jeep promises that the capabilities of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer in the L model option will remain intact for towing, off-roading, and so on.

Passenger volume in the Wagoneer L increases dramatically, with third-row legroom now 36.6 inches (93 cm) and an added 15.8 cubic feet (447.5 liters) of cargo volume (growing to 44.2 cf/1,251.6 l behind the third row). Both the Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L have seating for seven or eight passengers, depending on configuration, and best-in-class towing of 10,000 lb (4,535.9 kg).

Jeep has also introduced two new engines to the lineup. These debut in the Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L as the Hurricane line of turbocharged six-cylinder options. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six Hurricane is made to replace and rival a V8 offering. The Wagoneer L features the 420 hp (313.2 kW), 468 pound-feet (634.5 Nm) version of the engine. The Grand Wagoneer L features a 510 hp (380.3 kW), 500 lb-ft (677.9 Nm) version. Both engines offer up to 2 mpg better returns than the V8s they would replace.

The Hurricane engines include two low-inertia, high-flow turbochargers; plasma transfer wire spray bore coating in their cylinder bores for friction reduction; high-pressure fuel injection; and an engine-mounted water-to-air charge cooler on a dedicated circuit.

As with current Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models, safety and connectivity systems are robust. Manufacturing will take place at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan.

Wagoneeerooooo! Yah!
That's just ridiculous and stupid... and they are going to sell lots of them.

Anyone buying a new ICE vehicle is a fool, you may as well take the whole purchase price in cash and burn the lot, because that's what you'll have in a few years when you go to sell it and ICE vehicles are worthless...

With that kind of tail they're just plain ugly, it seems just an afterthought...

The Wagoneer is a nice first try, but the overall appearance looks like it was designed by committee of non-Engineers with no enthusiasm for cars, rather than a passionate design team that lives to make rolling art. Hopefully future iterations of this vehicle will evolve into something that people will look at with admiration.
