Jeep is calling on its legion of fans to name the all-new electric Wagoneer. Jeep confirmed that it was planning a mid-size Wagoneer BEV during its 4xe Day on September 8, 2022. Right now, the vehicle is code-named the Wagoneer “S”. The Wagoneer BEV is scheduled to launch in 2024.

Jeep has said that the smaller Wagoneer S will help Jeep grow the Wagoneer family. The premium SUV will only be built as an all-electric vehicle. Jeep intends for the Wagoneer S to have 600 horsepower, a range of 400 miles and do 0-60mph in about 3.5 seconds. It is supposed to be built in North America. The electric SUV will eventually be sold globally.
“At the recent Detroit Auto Show, we said that our community will play a part in the process of naming such a special vehicle,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep brand CEO. “Today we are delivering on that promise by providing owners and enthusiasts an opportunity to submit a name for the first-ever electric Wagoneer. This premium and highly efficient SUV is loaded with technology, craftmanship and performance, expanding our presence in the premium mid-sized SUV segment and it will become an essential player in our global EV product offensive,” added Meunier.
