  1. My understanding was the Wagoneer was going to be based on the Durango chassis, maybe the decided that the Jeep brand, which I imagine is probably stronger than the Dodge brand, might out compete it. I thought they were going to be in completely different price ranges. Oh well. I’m happy with my four-door Wrangler.
