The all-new three-row, full-size, extremely premium SUV from Jeep is debuting next week, on September 3, and there’s been no shortage of virtual teasers on social media to get us hyped up. The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer have long been hinted at in FCA’s future product plans, and is finally set to hit showrooms starting Q2 2021. That might seem like a ways out, but with it sharing the same platform as the Ram 1500, it will at least give the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Michigan a change to launch the 2021 TRX between now and then.

The most recent teaser doesn’t reveal much, unfortunately. Just that it will be a full-sized bull of an SUV that will square off with the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban Z71 from General Motors. But considering previous hints showcasing surprisingly luxurious touches, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer to be compared closer to the GMC Yukon Denali family.

Since the new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will share the same factory and architecture as the DT Ram 1500, expect similar hardware under the hood. The base engine will likely be a eTorque assisted Pentastar V6, while a 5.7L Hemi will presumably be the upgrade. Down the line, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a 392 Hemi V8, followed by a Hellcat if we’re lucky. After the debut of the 2022 Wagoneer, Jeep will have an arguably bigger announcement to follow later this year (or perhaps early next year, considering delays): the all-new 2022 Grand Cherokee.
