Jeep has introduced the Wagoneer S, positioning it as a competitor in the electric SUV sector, notably against the Tesla Model Y Performance.

The Wagoneer S, a 2024 model, features a dual-motor all-wheel drive setup, delivering 447 kW of power and 800 Nm of torque.

It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and claims an electric range of over 483 km according to the US Environmental Protection Agency test cycle, slightly more than the Tesla Model Y Performance's estimated 449 km range.

The Launch Edition of the Wagoneer S is scheduled to be available in the US and Canada in the latter half of this year, with availability in other markets expected in 2026.

The Wagoneer S is equipped with a 400-volt 100kWh battery capable of recharging from 20% to 80% in approximately 23 minutes with a DC fast charger.

It is based on the STLA Large platform, which is also compatible with hybrid and combustion engines and is utilised in vehicles such as the new Dodge Charger.

The vehicle includes a traction management system with various driving modes, designed to adapt to different driving conditions.

The powertrain configuration allows for disconnection of the front motor during cruising to save energy.

Aerodynamically, the Wagoneer S features a design with a drag coefficient of 0.29, facilitated by elements such as flush door handles and integrated fins for airflow management.

Internally, the Wagoneer S offers over 45 inches of screen space across several displays, including a 12.3-inch digital cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen that supports Uconnect 5.

The interior is designed with sustainability in mind, utilising recycled materials and non-leather upholstery.

The US Launch Edition is equipped with several safety features, such as autonomous emergency braking and a comprehensive suite of driver-assist systems.

Despite the use of the Wagoneer name, which has been associated with larger, combustion-engine models, the Wagoneer S stands out as Jeep’s electric offering in the mid-sized SUV category, differing significantly in technology and design from its larger siblings.
