The President of the UAW has informed the membership of a possible labor agreement that has been reached between Jeep, Stellantis, which is Jeep’s parent company, and the UAW. The agreement sheds light on some of the firms’ future production plans, including those for fully electric versions of the Wrangler and the Grand Cherokee, which is an interesting development.
Jeep electrified Wrangler and Grand Cherokee by 2028.

The paper suggests that the introduction of the Wrangler EV will most likely take place in the year 2028, while the Grand Cherokee EV is expected to hit the market one year sooner. In contrast to the Grand Cherokee, which will be manufactured at the Detroit Assembly Complex, production of the Wrangler will take place at the Toledo Assembly Complex.
In 2027, Jeep also intends to launch a brand-new all-electric Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer, both of which will be built on the STLA Frame.
Stellantis plans to invest $19 billion in new battery plants, facility upgrades, EV training, and the development of wholly new electric vehicles by April 2028, according to records that are older but are still quite current. This investment is being made in order to stay up with the shift to an electrified future. A total of around $9.4 billion of those funds are going toward the construction of three new battery factories.
However, before any of that can happen, we are still awaiting the arrival of the Jeep Recon and the Wagoneer S.
