As the memory of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept debut event begin to fade, TFLtruck viewers have captured several giant Jeep SUVs testing on Colorado highways and roads. Here, we have images from Ouray, Lakewood, and other places across Colorado.
Huge thanks to Leo Amadeas, Roger Kramer, and Cole Tallerman for capturing these beasts in the wild.
While Jeep revealed a concept version of the Grand Wagoneer, these prototypes appear to be following along very similar (if not identical) body lines. The grille, headlights, and tail lights all appear to be very similar to those seen on the concept vehicle.
One features that appears to be different on the prototypes are the side mirrors. The prototype vehicles have side mirrors that are much larger than those on the concept. This is a good thing, considering that Jeep hinted at class-leading towing capacity for the Grand Wagoneer. The Ford Expedition is rated to tow 9,300 lbs with a towing package. Could the Grand Wagoneer be rated at over 10,000 lbs? We will have to wait to find out.
We don’t know any powertrain specifications yet, but we have a guess that the top of the line Grand Wagoneer will have a 5.7-liter V8 Plug-in Hybrid system with around 450 horsepower of total output.
Will the production Jeep Grand Wagoneer roll on optional 24-inch wheels (just like the concept vehicle)? We don’t know for sure yet, but those black wheels look mighty big. They may be 22-inch wheels – at least.
Stay tuned for more details about this Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition competitor. We will publish any official information as soon as we get it.
