Re: New Wagoneer List of Demands

My Wagoneer "demands":
  • Classic, clean design (nothing overly forward-thinking like the Cherokee)
  • Durango-sized (not bigger, because we don't want it to lose all off-road ability)
  • Aluminum / carbon fiber use on body panels where appropriate (get the weight down to lighter than current WK2)
  • Tuned Eco-Diesel engine with stop/start technology
  • Quadra-Lift suspension
  • Quadra-Drive II (real transfer case) with front and rear ELSDs
  • Full skid plates
  • Wrangler Silent Armor tires on the ORAII package
  • Rock rails on ORAII package
  • Proportional trailer brake controller
  • 360* Camera
  • Next-generation UConnect
  • Redundant physical A/C controls
  • Open-pore real wood trim in interior.
  • OPTIONAL real wood exterior trim on all trim levels (don't force it on people who don't want it, let people get it on any trim level if they DO wan't it.)

That would require paying 3 people, 7 days a week to install it, plus the cost of materials.

Considering how big of a job that would be, I seriously doubt that will happen because they will have nothing to do on a Grand Cherokee or Durango and will just sit there on the line until a Grand Wagoneer comes down the line.

Yeah I really don't think THAT is going to happen. This won't be a high production vehicle... well at least I can't see it being one right now.

I hope it stays exactly the same when these new Jeeps come! (From what I've heard already, it most likely will...)

ALL aluminum!

Now that the Range Rover, Jaguar, and the next Ford F150 are made will all aluminum body. It's time for jeep to get in on the game.

Lighter body, a lighter hellcat engine, that's progress!

If I remember history correctly Jeep was always a leader with early adoption of 4 wheel drive and unibody construction as a few examples, so let's keep that tradition of leadership going........

Re: New Wagoneer List of Demands

SO, I own 3 Vipers (soon to be 4), plus some other Chrysler products, and am either going to get the Jeep SRT, or the wagoneer... So loyalty, and eccentricity established, I was wondering:
1) Any hint on sort of timing? I could get an SRT now, but am willing to wait for an uber-lux wagy
2) Please no wood, come on not the 70s (sure optional, great), but honestly, deal breaker for me
3) Huge engine package, mucho power needed, as well as towing capacity (SRT engine option would be super-cool)
4) I like the previous ideas on Durango size. I was thinking about that one until I drove the SRT
5) Aluminum frame is another great idea. THis is replacing a H2, which is great from a tank perspective, but 6k pounds is just too much. I'm going to doubt the actuality of this, the Viper is not even an aluminum frame, and if any car in their roster deserves that, its the Viper.
6) Frankly don't care about cost, anything under 100 is probably reasonable if you put enough of the cool stuff in it, we are head-on against Cayenne if we put the right engine in there, and can beat them on lux, maintenance, off road ability, and still be much cheaper. Having said that, if we go low-end (read one step above the non-SRT jeep) then over 70 is too much. My pref is to go against the cayenne market.
7) not into diesels, just me, I know.

Basically a wicked super lux suv that blows the doors off a cayenne S and offroads better than a G55 would be perfect, there isn't much competition for something like that. There IS a market for it, I see Cayenne S' everyday (and they look, sub optimal IMO).

Thanks! Great thread!
