Introduction of the Wagoneer S: Jeep is excited to enter the electric vehicle market with the Wagoneer S, its first electric SUV in the U.S. Announced in-

September 2022, it's set for release later this year with a fully-loaded Launch Edition. Stay tuned.

Power and Performance: The Wagoneer S comes with a robust 600-horsepower powertrain and all-wheel drive. It can zoom from 0 to 60-

mph in just 3.4 seconds and offers an impressive range of over 300 miles on a single charge, thanks to its 100.5 kWh battery capacity.

Design and Size: The Wagoneer S is a bit smaller than the Grand Cherokee and has a lower, more streamlined design.

It boasts a cozy two-row, five-seat setup, making it a perfect fit between the compact and mid-size segments. Some standout features-

include a modern seven-slot grille with cool lighting elements and a sleek rear with a sharply angled liftgate.

Interior and Features: Inside, the Wagoneer S reflects the luxury of the Grand Wagoneer with a stylish two-spoke steering wheel and various screens,

including a digital gauge cluster and a central infotainment display. The Launch Edition comes with a fantastic McIntosh audio system, heated-

and cooled seats, a head-up display, and a full suite of driver-assist systems. You also have the option for a-

cool red leather interior and a towing package that can handle up to 3,400 pounds.

Market Positioning: The Wagoneer S is geared towards the premium market, taking on luxury electric SUVs like the Tesla Model Y, Cadillac-

Lyriq, and Genesis Electrified GV70. Though it shares the Wagoneer name, it's a unique model, different from the larger Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

Charging and Battery: It offers a speedy recharge, with Jeep estimating you can go from 20% to 80% in just 23 minutes using a DC fast-charger.

Focus and Future Prospects: Primarily designed for on-road use with limited ground clearance, there's a hint of an exciting future-

Trailhawk version for off-roading enthusiasts. This upcoming model would offer higher ground clearance and all-terrain tires.

Availability and Pricing: Reservations for the $71,995 Wagoneer S Launch Edition open tomorrow, with deliveries expected to-

start later this year. Stay tuned for more details on additional variants coming soon!
