Global Release of the Electric SUV Jeep Wagoneer S, Built on the All-New STLA-Large Platform

The Wagoneer S, Jeep's first electric SUV, has been unveiled in the US. All-terrain management is made possible by the standard 4xe capabilities of the brand-new STLA-Large platform, upon which it is built. According to Jeep, STLA-Large is a highly adaptable, BEV-native platform made for sedans, hatchbacks, and SUVs. The new platform is available in 400V and 800V electric designs and can accommodate front-, rear-, or four-wheel drive powertrain configurations. 'BEV-native' as it may be, the platform can even support a hybrid drivetrain. The Wagoneer S's battery parameters are yet unknown, however the STLA-Large offers battery sizes that range from 85 to 118 kWh. 

Jeep gave the EV a boxy profile, trapezoidal wheel arches, an LED fog lamp and taillamp, a full-width LED bar at the front and back and an LED-lit seven-slot chrome grille on the outside. 

The central infotainment screen, the driver's display, the screen for the climate control, massaging seat controls, and defrost settings, and the passenger entertainment screen take up much of the Jeep Wagoneer S's dashboard. The SUV is notable for lacking any physical buttons, with the exception of those for media control, navigation, and cruise control on the steering wheel. 

The middle console houses both the driving mode selector and the rotary drive selector. Additionally, there is a special five-mode driving system called Selec-Terrain, which includes snow, sand, eco, sport, and auto. Additional features include a 19-speaker McIntosh audio system, a 360-degree video, lane keep assist, heated and cooled seats, a 4-xe terrain management system, and color-selectable ambient lighting.
