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.
