Set to debut in 2018 and rival the likes of Range Rover and Porsche Cayenne, the new Grand Wagoneer could cost as much as $140,000 each.
Thatís right, Jeep boss Mike Manley recently talked to Auto Express
at the Paris Auto Show and told the publication that their range-topping SUV will compete in the premium SUV market which could drastically increase the SUVís prices.
ďI donít think thereís a maximum price ceiling per se for Jeep. If you look at the upper end of the segment in the US, for me, the Grand Wagoneer done well can compete all the way through this segment,Ē said Manley.
Those are concerning words, especially if he isnít taking a maximum price ceiling into consideration.
He continues on to give Auto Express a price estimate in USD; ďIíll use US dollars, but pushing the car up to $130,000 to $140,000 may be possible, but we need to establish Grand Wagoneer in its own right first. Thatís why I wouldnít say thereís price ceiling.Ē
Hopefully, we wonít be seeing a $130,000 plus price tag even if the Wagoneer is rumored to share parts with the Maserati Levante and offer both a turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 and a 3.0-liter V6 diesel. Currently Jeepís most expensive model is the Grand Cherokee SRT with a starting price of $65,000. A far cry from $140,000.
