People poked fun at Stellantis in the U.S. for stretching the Hellcat engine as far as it could possibly go, but the automaker is now eying electrification. Even Jeep is involved, first announcing the Recon EV and now, the Wagoneer S. The sharply styled EV is set to debut this fall.
Jeep said the SUV will deliver an upscale interior with nice materials and premium styling. The images it shared show a cabin similar to the existing gas Wagoneers, with a widescreen infotainment system and a passenger-side display highlighting the dash. Jeep promises a 19-speaker McIntosh stereo, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and ambient interior lighting.
Being a Jeep, the Wagoneer S has to at least pretend to be off-road-capable, so it will get the brand’s Selec-Terrain drive modes that alter the all-wheel drive performance depending on the terrain. Unlike the huge, boxy gas Wagoneer, the electric S features a sleek shape and more aerodynamic proportions.
The new SUV will ride on Stellantis’ STLA Large vehicle platform, which the automaker has said can support range estimates of up to 500 miles on a charge. It’s the same platform underpinning the upcoming Ram electric pickup and at least seven other models by the end of 2026. That also includes the Maserati Quattroporte and Levante and the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia.
