First teaser video released for Jeep Wagoneer S EV featuring a cameo by Model Y

It’s been approximately four months since we last received a glimpse of the upcoming Jeep Wagoneer S electric SUV. In January, Jeep unveiled an interior featuring four screens and electrically operated doors. Now, we have footage from Willow Springs International Motorsports Park in California, where the Jeep lines up alongside a Tesla Model Y Performance for a symbolic race to showcase Jeep’s readiness to compete against America’s top-selling EV.

During the race, the Wagoneer S edges ahead, clocking a 3.4-second 0-60 time, surpassing the Model Y Performance’s official time of 3.5 seconds. The Jeep achieves this impressive acceleration with 600 horsepower and 617 pound-feet of torque, outperforming the Model Y’s estimated 550 hp and 487 lb-ft. Additionally, the Wagoneer S boasts a range of over 300 miles on a single charge, surpassing the Model Y Performance’s range.

However, it’s important to note that the Tesla Model Y Performance starts at around $52,000 before incentives, while the Jeep Wagoneer S is expected to start at $80,000 and can go up to $100,000.

The video is titled “Surpass Yourself,” highlighting the competition between the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which shares a similar 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a previous starting price of nearly $92,000. For a similar price point, one might consider the Rivian R1S with four motors, 835 hp, 908 lb-ft of torque, a 3.0-second 0-60 time, and an estimated range of 321 miles on a single charge.
