Carrying over unchanged from the Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept, you’ll find the silhouette of the Grand Wagoneer concept inscribed with “EST. 1963” beneath it, giving a nod to the first model year of the Grand Wagoneer line. The dashboard of the Grand Wagoneer can be adorned with multiple hues of wood or raw aluminum.
One thing that’s carried over from the old Grand Wagoneers is an open, airy greenhouse. Not only does an abundance of glass make the interior feel even more spacious, but the open greenhouse should also benefit the Grand Wagoneer’s driver in terms of outward visibility; we’re eager to see how it stacks up to its competition from Ford and GM.
Wrapped in leather and trimmed with a wood inlay and aluminum detailing, the two-spoke steering wheel found in the Grand Wagoneer is a bit odd and chunky, but anyone familiar with Wagoneers of yore will notice this as a nod to its elders. Love it or hate it, you certainly can’t knock it for looking cheap or chintzy. Look closely and you’ll see a steering wheel icon in place of the typical cruise control symbol denoting Stellantis’s Level 2 active driving assist hands-on cruise control; true hands-off capability will be offered with late availability.
New Beats, Comfy Seats
The Grand Wagoneer features a custom-tailored 1,375-watt 23-speaker McIntosh audio system that would be Jeep’s first in a production vehicle. Also, notice the seat controls on the door panel just above the door locks and window controls. This feature is commonplace in German luxury vehicles and will be used to control the 12-way power-adjustable leather front seats in the Wagoneer and the 24-way power-adjustable quilted leather front seats with a massaging feature available in the Grand Wagoneer.
Screens on Screens
The Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept features a heavily tech-laden interior. The central infotainment system is a 12.1-inch touchscreen with an all-new Uconnect 5 operating system. Beneath the main screen sits a 10.3-inch display solely for functions such as seat adjustment and climate controls; it also pulls back with the press of a button to reveal a secret compartment that houses an induction charger, 12-volt charger, USB ports, and an HDMI port. Below that, you’ll find drive modes, an illuminated rotary shift knob, and controls for the air suspension. As with many competitors in the luxury segment, the 12.3-inch instrument panel display is entirely digital. If these are not enough screens to satisfy you, you’ll be pleased to know that there is also a 10.3-inch screen for the front passenger and a seatback-mounted 10.1-inch entertainment screen for each second-row occupant.
Teak Chic (Concept Only)
The LED projector headlamps look very upscale; each projector rests on a fancy teak-wood surround. In addition to the headlamps, you will also find teak inlays on the four tie-down points of the roof rack. That would be a great conversation starter whether you’re visiting your local winery, or dropping the kids off at soccer practice, but much to our dismay the teak wood didn’t make the cut to production.
LED Grille (Concept Only)
The grille shown on the Grand Wagoneer concept is a blend of old and new. In the right light, it could even be confused with an electric beard trimmer. Jokes aside, the front end showcases a cascading chrome-slatted grille that pulls inspiration from the Grand Wagoneers of the late ’60s. Unlike the old grilles, though, this one is sectioned off into Jeep’s trademark seven-slot style. On top of that is an illuminated LED bar that runs the length of the grille and headlights, in addition to running in between the slots. Production models will have dark gray slotted inserts in place of the concept model’s LEDs.
Glass Roof (Concept Only)
Look carefully, and you’ll see that the Grand Wagoneer concept pays homage to its hometown with a map of Detroit etched into its full-length panoramic glass roof. Unfortunately, this full-length glass homage to the Wagoneer’s hometown didn’t make it into production, but there will still be a normal panoramic sunroof option.
Backlit Badging (Concept Only)
Using a custom font developed specifically for the Grand Wagoneer, the design team added illumination behind the slightly raised letters to help the nameplates stand out, even at night, further adding to the opulent character that Jeep is aiming for. Just like the LED grille, the backlit badging proved to be a step further than Jeep wanted to go with the design, so they kept the new font and decided against the backlighting.
Big Shoes (Concept Only)
The Grand Wagoneer concept rides on 24-inch aluminum wheels with dark-gray inlays between each trident-shaped set of spokes. However, for production, the Grand Wagoneer’s largest available wheel size will be 22 inches. Though the 24-inch wheels look great, the 22-inch wheels will offer better ride quality and lower chances of acquiring damage from potholes or other treacherous surfaces. You never know though, perhaps in the future we’ll see a special edition of Jeep’s new flagship with special shoes.
