Jeep, under the umbrella of Stellantis, faces challenges in its home market as sales decline, prompting a reevaluation of its next-generation products. Originally planned with electric propulsion, the Wagoneer S and Recon models may now include gasoline options to boost sales volume.

Antonio Filosa, Stellantis’ CEO, sees potential for gas-powered versions of the Wagoneer S and Recon, leveraging the STLA Large platform to accommodate the potent 3.0-liter Hurricane twin-turbo I6 engine.

This engine, shared with models like the Dodge Charger SIXPACK and Ram 1500, delivers impressive power and torque figures, offering a compelling alternative for customers.

While electric options remain viable, the flexibility to include gasoline powertrains underscores Stellantis’ commitment to meeting market demands and maximizing sales potential. With the upcoming Wagoneer S and Recon models, Stellantis aims to capitalize on the popularity of midsized SUVs and compete effectively against established rivals in the segment.
