America is getting its next big SUV, the 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. What’s interesting is that Jeep will release this model into the premium SUV market. As the company will go premium, the price of this SUV is surely going to be heartbreaking. It will be competing against the likes of Porsche Cayenne and Range Rover.
For what it’s worth, buyers in the US might have to pay as much as $140,000. Jeep CEO, Mike Manley has said that he personally doesn’t see any price ceiling for Jeep. According to the CEO, this Grand Wagoneer must be established in its own right. Therefore, a high pricing is possible.
As the price of 2018 Grand Wagoneer is going to be higher than models like Grand Cherokee SRT, the company has to incorporate an array of improvements in various parameters like powertrain, standard features and new technologies.
