Jeep launched the front-wheel drive, truck-style Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUV models, which has become the long-awaited opportunity to enter the three-row full-size SUV market.
The new Grand Cherokee L can carry three rows of passengers, while the Wagoneer model provides additional elbow room for larger families and weighs 10,000 pounds. Traction muscles to help bring campers and boats outdoors.
When General Motors launched the second-generation Chevrolet Tahoe in 2000, Bob Lutz, the company’s product leader, mocked the Jeep Grand Cherokee as a “car.” Compared with the full-size, framed upper body of the Tahoe.
Now Jeep has finally responded to Luz’s reasonable point that the narrow one-piece Grand Cherokee is not the ideal trailer for large trailers. Now, Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer simplify the mooring process with available air suspension.
The optional air suspension lowers the Wagoneer all the way to the bump stop, then the driver uses the Trailer Hitch Line Up Assist reversing camera to back up to the trailer’s coupling, and then the suspension rises again to place the ball directly into the coupler. No fuss, no confusion.
â€? You don’t have to shake on the trailer anymore, â????? Boasting Jim Morrison, Vice President of Jeep North America. ?? This is an amazing technology!
Wagoneers are four inches longer than the current Tahoe and roll on a three-inch wheelbase. The Jeep exceeds the weight of Tahoe (8,400 pounds). The maximum towing capacity is 1,600 pounds.
Thanks to their famous Hemi V8 power unit hood, they have the ability to pull a 10,000-pound trailer. Wagoneer is equipped with a Hemi 5.7-liter V-8 engine rated at 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft. It has a torque function and is equipped with a next-generation eTorque 48-volt hybrid vehicle with fuel-saving technology, which includes cylinder deactivation and variable cam timing (VCT) as standard equipment. The Grand Wagoneer is equipped with 6.4 liters of Hemi, which can provide 471 horsepower and 455 lb.-ft. Torque. Both engines are equipped with TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
All these supporting frames are made of high-strength steel to improve their rigidity. Its side rails are completely boxed, and the frame includes a total of 6,500 welds. The resulting stiffness helps the Wagoneer drive smoothly and provides a solid foundation for towing large trailers.
Of course, as jeeps, both Wagoneers include an all-terrain all-wheel drive system, which is expected to take drivers to their remote destinations and bring them back.
These systems are Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II, and are supported by the available Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Terrain traction management system. Because these terms seem confusing for products that power all four wheels, here is an explanation of their differences and functions.
Quadra-Trac I uses a lightweight single-speed transfer case to provide full-time four-wheel drive without any push button or pull lever switch.
The Quadra-Trac II’s two-speed transfer case uses inputs from various sensors to determine tire slip as early as possible and take corrective actions. The system also uses the throttle to predict rapid movement from parking and maximize traction before the tires slip. When wheel slip is detected, up to 100% of the available torque is immediately transferred to the wheel with the greatest traction.
The Quadra-Drive II system has a rear electronic limited slip differential (ELSD) that can instantly detect tire slip and smoothly distribute engine torque to the tires through traction. In some cases, the vehicle will expect low traction and make adjustments to actively limit or eliminate skidding.
The driver-selectable Selec-Terrain system is the standard configuration of Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II, allowing the driver to choose from the following five settings: Auto, Sports, Rock, Snow and Sand/Mud.
Selec-Terrain can electronically coordinate up to 12 different powertrains, braking, 4×4 torque distribution and suspension systems, including throttle control, gearbox shifting, transfer case, hill descent control and Selec-Speed Control.
Each of these five positions has its own characteristics, and Wagoneer can be optimized to complete the task at hand. Auto? Autoâ???? Automatically adapt to any on-road or off-road situation.
Rock? The Quadra-Lift air suspension system is used to raise the Wagoneer to a maximum height of 10 inches, while the transfer case, differential and throttle coordinates provide low-speed control.
Sand Sand adjusts the traction control and Quadra-Lift to respond sensitively to wheel slip, and adjusts the torque to get the best performance in sand or mud.
During the nascent SUV boom in the 1980s, the wooden side wagons of jeeps often appeared in the Tony area, and during Christmas, they were usually decorated with garlands on the grille.
The new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer aim to reclaim the favored pioneers in country clubs. “It’s all about U.S. premiums,” explained chief design officer Ralph Gilles. ?? This is the American way.
This is especially true for large station wagons, whose cabin is full of wood, leather and metal. Passengers will be occupied by images displayed on a 75-inch video screen, including content provided by the industry’s first Amazon Fire TV for Auto.
When Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer reappear in the country club’s parking valet queue, the attendants will want to know what has happened over the years!
