Jeep Grand Wagoneer Could Push into $140K Range

Jeep is planning to push its products to uncharted territory when it comes to price. 

The new Grand Wagoneer will aim to compete with the Range Rover and will have a price that could push up to the $140,000 mark. “Pushing the car up to $130,000 to $140,000 may be possible, but we need to establish Grand Wagoneer in its own right first,” Jeep CEO Mike Manley told Auto Express.

The Grand Wagoneer and its sibling the Wagoneer will be based on a stretched version of the next-generation Grand Cherokee’s platform which means they should arrive on the market by 2018 as 2019 models. Both models will feature three rows of seating, while the Grand Wagoneer will offer more plush luxury options.

Pushing up to that price point will pit the Jeep against some of the world’s top luxury brands such as Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW.

    Not gonna happen – nobody will pay $130-140K for a Jeep instead of one of the other brands mentioned

  • SPVaughan

    No one in their right mind is going to spend $130-$140,000 for a JEEP! They will buy a Range Rover, or anything else for that matter.

  • Mike Hanson

    They can’t be serious. No way they’ll be able to scavenge sales from the other luxury brands, not as a JEEP anyway. They might be able to rebrand it as an Alfa Romeo or something, though.

  • Perry F. Bruns

    Not for me, it couldn’t.

    I could get two Teslas!

  • Mike Daniel

    Interesting. I bet they would sell a ton of these.

  • Mike Daniel

    Why would anyone even want ONE Tesla. Yuk.

  • Mike Daniel

    I’d be happy enough with a Toyota Landcruiser for $85,000.

  • mike connor

    Ya, good luck with that!

  • RJ

    well if Hyundai can sell a Genesis coupe for 26k, then add AWD, 2 doors, and a v8 and sell it for 70k, i dont see why Jeep couldn’t sell these from 40-120k.

    Last I heard, the “Wagoneer” (not Grand) will be based on the KL platform aka Cherokee (not Grand). Grand Wagoneer definitely based on WK platform aka Grand Cherokee.

    FCA really needs to stop with the “Grand” nonsense for naming. It was dumb enough on the minivans, with “Grand” meaning “extended length” but otherwise the same vehicle. Then the RT minivan came out in 2008, only one length available, but still called “Grand Caravan.” Dumb.

    Exactly, two is better, and it wouldn’t be a vehicle at the bottom of the J.D. Power reliability report.
