The long-awaited three-row Jeep, the Jeep Wagoneer, shows her face on September 3. Until then, you can expect to keep seeing Jeep teasers, the latter two being the photo above showing the SUV’s panoramic glass roof and another showing a nice chrome HVAC vent. Take a look.
For some reason, people seem to have an affinity for Jeep “Easter Eggs”. The concept has gone viral Tiktok earlier this year, and frankly, at all times Jalopnik writes that the term “Easter Egg” in its title is generally crushing in terms of traffic. Maybe I should have used the term in this title; never mind. Instead, I’ll just highlight the map on the roof of the car. Let’s take a closer look:
It’s Detroit and the endless urban sprawl that surrounds it, but with a keen eye you’ll notice things look a bit messy. This is because the Glass Map is only properly located when viewed from inside the Wagoneer, so as we see now, things are reversed. East is West.
Why Metro Detroit? This is where FCA assembles the new Wagoneer. Specifically, the company assembles the vehicle at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant, whose location I have marked in the image above.
This is where the Auburn Hills-based automaker builds its Ram 1500, so you can bet this new Wagoneer will be a body-on-chassis luxury beast. I’m talking about “luxury,” because the other teaser Jeep shared today shows a bit of chrome goodness:
It’s an HVAC vent, with what appears to be some sort of flat storage shelf (or maybe an open compartment?) Below. I am really not sure. But the “is. 1963 “A nod to the original model year of the Wagoneer is a good idea. (Fun fact: Jeep Wagoneer’s first two model years offered independent suspension, although the option was later dropped. You can bet the new truck will have it as standard).
These two teasers add to the growing list of nuggets that Jeep has shared to create anticipation for the successor to the company’s Jeep Commander, though that’s probably not how Jeep wants anyone to refer to the new Wagoneer (after everything, the late Sergio Marchionne would have called the commander ” Unfit for human consumption. »
Here are those nuggets, in case you missed them:
The original Jeep Wagoneer never offered three rows, so it’ll be a bit blasphemous, but hey, it’s an iconic nameplate, and Jeep has to get into the three-row game. The fact that the SUV brand has let Chevy Tahoe and Suburban – and Ford Explorer and Expedition – nibble away at all sales is a little absurd.
