It is absolute that New Jeep Grand Wagoneer will get a hybrid powertrain. But Jeep has not announced anything regarding what kind of engine will that be. There are two possible sources where Grand Wagoneer can get its hybrid powertrain. First of all, it can share the same powertrain with the new Jeep Wrangler. While, the second one is Chrysler Pacifica’s plugin hybrid drivetrain.
If Chrysler Pacifica’s drive train is chosen, some changes definitely will be made because Pacifica has front-wheel drive system while Grand Wagoneer is rear-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive. Just for information, Chrysler Pacifica is powered by 3.6 L V6 engine and the electric motor is powered by 16.0 kWh lithium-ion battery package.
