Production of the forthcoming Lincoln Aviator EV – along with the all-electric Ford Explorer slated for North America – is scheduled to begin at the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada in 2025, with production of the ICE Aviator also slated to end at the Chicago Assembly plant in 2028. These new EV crossovers are expected to have large frunks, Pro Power Onboard, sleek styling, and at least 350 miles of range, though for Lincoln at least, this is just the beginning of what is expected to be a total transition to electrification at some point in the future. However, it won’t be alone in that space, as Stellantis has once again teased the all-electric Jeep Wagoneer S after we got our first glimpse of the future model back in September 2022.
There are some notable changes that have taken place between now and then, as one might imagine, with the Jeep Wagoneer S taking on a more production-ready form versus the prior concept. Slated to launch in the U.S. in fall 2024 – followed by other global markets at future dates – the Wagoneer S will be sold exclusively in all-electric guise.
In addition to that, the Jeep Wagoneer S will offer customers standard 4xe capability, all-terrain management, and what the automaker calls “advanced Jeep brand-focused technology and impressive performance credentials.” The latter part is delivered in the form of a whopping 600 horsepower, which will propel the crossover from 0-60 in a mere 3.5 seconds, coupled with an exterior design that’s intended to provide maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
The new Jeep Wagoneer S certainly looks like a product from that brand given its signature seven-slot front grille, though in this case, it’s completely illuminated by LED lighting. Regardless, much like Lincoln, Jeep is in the midst of a major electric transition, with its parent company – Stellantis – aiming to become carbon net zero by 2038.
