Did you know that you could buy almost two Model Y for the price of this Jeep? They conveniently left that out in the ad.

The video is cool, and the styling is on point, I really like it.

Bob , 24 May 2024If they're comparing the the Tesla model y then surely it must be priced like the model y... moreIt will be most likely be priced $80k+, which puts it in comparison with the Model X.

I also like how they compared the range to the Model Y performance because it has lower range, but then the specs of the Wagoneer S are not comparable with the performance MY. The Long Range Model Y which has 320mile range would be a better comparison in performance, but the Wagoneer has the price tag of the Model X...and the MX has 330 mile range, with 7 seat option.

If you are going to write a comparison article, try to at least compare apples to apples.

Jeep may be entering the ev market, but claiming to challenge Tesla's dominance with one luxury SUV is quite ambitious. Tesla has a proven track record and a loyal customer base that won't be easily swayed.

If they're comparing the the Tesla model y then surely it must be priced like the model y right? Right? Because it would not make sense to price it like the model x and compare to the model y...

If it is priced like the model y, I'd take it over the model y but that would mean this EV is the cheapest Wagoneer and I don't have high hopes for that.

If they are going to start at $80k and are trying to appeal to a crowd that wants a bit more off-roading capabilities and a more luxury than the model y with improved range, let me introduce you to the already available Rivian R1S which can be configured to accelerate quicker, on paper go up to 400 miles, has 3 rows of seating. I just do not see the advantage of this Jeep but maybe I'm missing something?

The gas powered Wagoneer is significantly larger than the Model Y. Will the EV Wagoneer be smaller then?

That said, the Wagoneer is also $80k+ and often times over $ if the EV is even more expensive, I doubt they move many units.
