2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer may cost AUD 170k
Hi, Bob Aldons from Car Business writing about 2 Jeep stories. Firstly recently announced the Jeep Renegade has tested well in the latest round of crash tests for ANCAP – 5 stars and to celebrate, Jeep are running a 3-year free service program for a limited time. Pity they don’t want to give a 5-year warranty as well or instead of. Second is the whisper from the USA of a 7 seater Grand Wagoneer due later this decade
Mike Manley was promising a 7 seater Jeep Grand Wagoneer 3 or 4 years ago so it’s been a long time coming and at $170k it could take as long as it likes. In my opinion, any Jeep at $170k is a joke if they can’t inject the build quality needed to justify that price. Any quality control is something sadly lacking in successive new models – 2016 Grand Cherokee, Cherokee and recently Renegade are arguably the poorest quality SUV’s on the market and their potential customers are staying away in droves.
So rather than a free 3-year service program to ‘celebrate’ a five-star safety result, how about a 5-year warranty to entice buyers back to the brand. Thanks to our industry colleagues at Indian Auto Blog for this story on the Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

The next-gen Jeep Wagoneer was earlier planned to be introduced in 2018 but then it was reported that the redesigned model may be delayed by a year or so. Now, according to a report from Auto Express, Jeep may target the high-end luxury SUV segment with a Jeep Grand Wagoneer priced around $170,000 ($USD$140,000) in the USA.
The next-gen Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer (pictured is the retired version) will be based on the next-gen Jeep Grand Cherokee’s platform.
The development was brought to light by Mike Manley, Head of Jeep brand, who was speaking to the British publication at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Mr. Manley said that pushing the next-gen Grand Wagoneer’s price range in the $1,30,000 (INR 86,45,968.50) to $1,40,000 (INR 93,11,043.00) range may be possible but the company needs “to establish Grand Wagoneer in its own right first.”
Just to be clear, Jeep’s luxury range will consist of two new luxury models starting later this decade – the Jeep Wagoneer and the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Like how Land Rover has introduced decked-up variants through its customization arm SVO, Jeep could introduce ultra-luxury Grand Wagoneer variants at the price quoted above, keeping the standard variants closer to the USD 100k mark. Still, this is a very big jump over the current flagship, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which costs not more than USD 70k.
The next-gen Jeep Wagoneer (pictured is the retired version) and Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be built in Warren, Michigan.
The next-gen Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be based on the next-gen Grand Cherokee’s platform. Both will be built in Warren, Michigan in the USA.

Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years, and while there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guy, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.
I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch.
I have access to good quality cars – you can see them on Cars Guide. Just click here [Cars Guide] to view our current stock of vehicles.
Other parts of my business that you may find the need to use from time to time are:
www.genuinespares.com.au. This is an online spare parts store for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Volkswagen and Isuzu Ute. I’ve got thousands of mechanical and panel parts plus Mopar (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa) T-Shirts, tyres, and alloy wheels as well. If you’re looking for a hard to get replacement part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with the USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges
We’re local agents for Williams Paint and Interior Protection as well as AutoGard and CleanGard car products and SunX window tinting. The Same story applies. This is an area that car dealers want to make an amazing amount of profit – up to 100% in some cases. Don’t get ripped off by the franchise car dealers – check us out for a local competitive price on car protection products, window tinting, and engine products.
I’m pleased to advise that in 2015 I was awarded the franchise for 1800Approved Finance. As a local finance company, we’re able to provide a better level of service than the local car dealers as well as pretty competitive rates. SO before you sign on the dotted line, let us compare rates on finance and insurance for you – no obligation. If you’re looking for finance for a new or used car, or any other worthwhile purpose, our company can assist – even if you’ve had some troubling financial issues.
