Jeep has made a lot of amazing SUVs over the years, their Wagoneer as well as Grand Wagoneer. Both of them are power SUVs that possess the all-powerful V-8 engines that increase their performance greatly.

With this, the Wagoneer is able to generate a total of 420 hoursepower, and the Grand Wagoneer is able to generate 510 horsepower. This makes them a very powerful piece of machinery.

The engine that is used here is very capable, and it has room for improvement even more, and this improves the overall performance. The customers were very satisfied with this, and it was, without a doubt a very a very solid option if buying an SUV.

But Jeep had other ideas because it was revealed by Car and Driver that the company would be ditching this engine for other SUVs.

This was noticed by the Car And Driver in a document that suggested that the V-8 engine would get ditched by the company in these two SUVs. But this is right now an unofficial report as Jeep hasn’t revealed or responded when the website tried to reach out to them.

It is big news indeed, as now everyone is wondering what engine will be in the upcoming model of these SUVs. This question has been answered as well because the document suggests that the engine that will be coming will be a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six.

The New Engines that Have Been Mentioned In The Document Aren’t Official Been Announced

The EPA rating for the 2024 Wagoneer will have a 420-hp version of the Hurricane inline-six. There are two possibilities: one, there will be rear- or four-wheel drive. Lastly, the eight-speed automatic transmission can be seen in almost all of the vehicles nowadays as it is very reliable and great in general for vehicles.

Now for the Grand Wagoneer, but the details regarding it are a bit unknown as EPA has only listed the 6.4-liter V-8 for its 2024 model.

On the other hand, the company’s database shows all of the 2024 models will be coming with the 3.0-liter. This shows that there are two different roads that we stand on, and it is up to the people as to what they want to believe in.

This New Engine Will Be A Great Addition To The 2024 Line-up

These are all the details that we have heard about this, and there isn’t any word from Jeep on this. It was a very unexpected step by the company because the engine that they were using was a very powerful engine, and this is something that everyone can agree on.

The 2023 model has a very positive response on the that it used engine, but the handling was criticized. This showed Jeep that there is still room for improvement in these SUVs.

The same could be said about the Grand Wagoneer, which had the same issues, but the engine and the power it offered were second to none. But the only thing that held it back was its handling. When looking at the competitors, they offered more than this SUV, which made it look very weak in comparison.

But it still held its own against the top dogs. This change in the engine could also mean that Jeep is planning to do something new that will help it reach the top. Only time will tell as to what they are going to do.
