Introduction of the 2024 Wagoneer S: Jeep is preparing to launch its first battery-electric SUV, the 2024 Wagoneer S.

Brand loyalists are skeptical but the Wagoneer S Trailhawk concept aims to change their minds.

Concept Reveal and Specifications: Revealed in New York alongside the production-ready Launch Edition model.

Features 31.5-inch Falken Wildpeak AT3W all-terrain tires on 18-inch multi-piece wheels.

Wheels inspired by bridge trusses and include exposed hex bolts. Design elements such as orange tow hooks, laser-cut metal roof rack, and unique fog light patterns.

Design and Styling: Seven-slot grille illuminated indirectly from the top of each slot. Jeep badge moved to the bumper as a decal.

Additional cutouts in front fenders for improved aerodynamics at high speeds.

Performance and Powertrain: No confirmation yet on whether it shares the 600-horsepower dual-motor powertrain with the regular Wagoneer S.

Jeep promises zero to 60 mph acceleration in 3.4 seconds for the launch trim.

Trailhawk Features: Rock mode included for the Selec-Terrain drive-mode system. Locking rear axle for enhanced off-road capability.

Three extra inches of ground clearance compared to the standard model. Approach and departure angles, fording depths still to be announced.

Interior Highlights: "Holy shit bar" passenger-side grab handle as described by Stellantis design chief Ralph Gilles.

Map pockets with removable straps and an open center console with additional straps. Interior designed like a backpack.

Jeep's first green interior with new vinyl upholstery simulating leather. Stone veneer on the dash and doors; design team banned wood for this car.

Powertrain Flexibility: Not labeled as electric-only; could offer "multi-energy options." Potential for inline-six engine from STLA Large-

platform-mate, the Dodge Charger. Jeep emphasizes "freedom of choice" for customers.
