Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept EV Revealed

Jeep’s large all-electric SUV, the Wagoneer S, is set to receive a rugged Trailhawk variant for international markets. Revealed as a near-production concept, the Wagoneer S Trailhawk includes several enhancements for improved off-road capability compared to the standard EV model.

Shared Powertrain and Battery:
The Trailhawk is expected to share the Wagoneer S's 100.5-kWh battery pack and dual-motor 600hp drivetrain. Despite Jeep not officially confirming the technical details, it asserts that the Trailhawk retains "all the capability of the new production vehicle."

Enhanced Off-Road Features:
Key modifications include a 2-inch suspension lift and new 31.5-inch all-terrain tires. Additionally, the Trailhawk features revised bumpers with tow hooks, a refreshed grille, and anti-scratch cladding on lower exposed surfaces to prevent damage during off-roading. Functional air vents have also been added to reduce high-pressure zones in the wheel wells at high speeds.

Additional Drive Modes and Locking Axle:
In true Trailhawk fashion, this version includes a Rock drive mode, supplementing the standard Auto, Sand, Snow, Eco, and Sport modes. Jeep has also integrated a driver-selectable electronic locking rear axle. These off-road enhancements are expected to reduce the Trailhawk's range compared to the Wagoneer’s claimed 480km.

Interior Upgrades:
The Trailhawk concept boasts interior changes such as a new octagon-shaped steering wheel, a red-colored switch panel in the center console for drive modes, diff lock rockers, and a passenger grab handle. Though still termed a concept, the model appears nearly production-ready and is anticipated to be introduced internationally at a later date.

Jeep India EV Plans:
While Jeep does not plan to bring the Wagoneer S or its Trailhawk variant to India, it is focusing on launching the next-generation Compass by 2026. This new model will feature turbo-petrol and diesel powertrains, as well as an all-electric version. Jeep’s sister brand Citroen is also expected to use the STLA Medium platform, which will underpin the new Compass, for its future models.
