Jeep accidentally revealed images of the upcoming Wagoneer S EV ahead of its official debut, just a week after being teased. The leak occurred through Jeep’s own Facebook account, and although the images were swiftly taken down, the internet ensured their permanence.

The Wagoneer S exhibits a departure from the traditional Jeep styling, presenting a sleeker and more refined appearance. There are noticeable influences from competitors, with elements reminiscent of Range Rover’s design, including traits from the Velar and Evoque, and a nod to the Land Rover Range Stormer concept in the front fascia. The recessed door handles contribute to the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance and range.

A notable feature is the unique rear spoiler extending from the roof trim over the rear windshield, creating a sporty impression and allowing for a more streamlined coupe-style profile. While this may enhance range, it could impact headroom. Additional highlights include a two-tone paint finish, panoramic sunroof, and a faux front grille with the signature seven slots, making the Wagoneer S an attractive option in the luxury EV market.

Despite sharing the Wagoneer name, the electric version differs significantly from the full-size Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs. It is fully electric and comparable in size to the Grand Cherokee, featuring a dual-motor 4xe drivetrain with an impressive 600 horsepower and a rapid 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds. These performance figures suggest a road-biased performance EV, although it retains Jeep’s capability for light off-road adventures with a standard all-terrain management system.

While the Wagoneer S marks Jeep’s first fully electric vehicle in the United States (excluding the compact Avenger EV sold in Europe), production is expected at the Toluca Assembly Plant in Mexico. The vehicle is built on the STLA Large architecture, set to underpin various Stellantis EVs by 2026. With its anticipated arrival later in the year, the Wagoneer S is poised to make a significant impact in the electric SUV market, offering a blend of performance, style, and Jeep’s iconic off-road capability.
