The Jeep Wagoneer S, which is a new midsize SUV that will expand the premium Wagoneer family when it goes on sale in 2024, finally has a name.
Since we first learned of the existence of a smaller, electric Jeep SUV, it has gone by the codename Wagoneer S-for “speed” given its 600 horsepower and estimated 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds. The good news: “We have a name now,” Jeep Brand CEO Christian Meunier tells MotorTrend in an interview.
We could learn the name in June when we might also see the production version of the coupe-like electric SUV that is slightly smaller than a Jeep Grand Cherokee. That makes it the baby of the Wagoneer family and the first all-electric model for the premium sub-brand.
It has not been an easy process. Jeep officials had a list of potential names, a mix of new and legacy names that the team studied and debated. But in case there was a better suggestion floating around out there, they decided to open it up to the public for ideas of what to call the new global vehicle.
