FCA also confirms the investment at Warren Truck to retool for production of the all-new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer (announced in 2017), along with their electrified counterparts, would increase to $1.5 billion. Production is expected to launch in early 2021.
Other details are sparse, but the all-new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will be build along-side the Ram 1500 and Ram 1500 Classic. It’s very interesting to note that electrified versions of the full-size SUVs are also planned.
