Jeep Grand Wagoneer information-a new Porsche EV-New Volkswagen Group models
Jeep have revealed even more information about their new Grand Wagoneer model which is looking to go head to head with the Range Rover. The latest coming in from the brand is that the new SUV model will become available in showrooms from near the end of the 2018 years. The other big news is that it has been confirmed, the new model will indeed be available here on the European market. Information on the new model is running a little scarce for the time being as Jeep stated that they have not decided on an engine range to come along with the car yet which therefore means performance rates are still undecided. We would expect that Jeep would make petrol and diesel varieties for showrooms but we do know that the model will be available with both two and four wheel drive variations.
