Jeep primes Wagoneer S with 592bhp and 300-mile range

A premium focus is clear from the interior of the Wagoneer S. Noting the original Wagoneer was “innovative in its time” for blending “premium touches with technology”, Jeep design chief Vince Galante said the same philosophy has been applied to the new car.

Jeep cites a total of 45in of interactive screens, housed in a ‘wing’ sculpture. There is a 12.3in digital driver display, a 12.3in central touchscreen and a 10.25in passenger screen. In a clear nod to Tesla, Galante also noted that the decision to integrate the screens in a single panel rather than a ‘floating’ tablet in the middle of the vehicle was “not our methodology”.

He added: “This is a Jeep: if you want the technology off, if goes away.”

The interior is clearly aiming for a premium customer, with a spacious cabin, a sizeable 866-litre boot, a performance twin-spoke steering wheel and a 19-speaker McIntosh audio system. Black ceramic-coated aluminium applique features on key touch points, which Jeep says is scratchproof and fingerprint-resistant.

There is also substantial use of recycled and recyclable materials, with the seats and instrument panel made from synthetic materials.

The Wagoneer S will launch in the US later this year, before arriving in the UK early next year. UK pricing and specifications have yet to be finalised.
