Stellantis isn’t done changing the game with the Jeep Wagoneer. A trademark was filed for the Jeep Tomahawk, which is a title full of confidence and power. Reportedly, the Jeep Wagoneer Tomahawk could make you forget about other luxury racing SUVs.
What is the Jeep Tomahawk?
We only have a few clues about the Jeep Tomahawk to go on. According to CarBuzz, Stellantis filed a trademark for the Tomahawk name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
This could mean that a more powerful off-roading or racing-oriented Jeep model could be in the works. But which Jeep gets to wear the epic Tomahawk badge? We’ve seen the word hawk used in a variety of models.
For example, the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk is the top-spec off-roading model. Also, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk races circles around the competition.
However, we haven’t heard anything about a new Cherokee Trackhawk yet. Also, the Dodge Durango Hellcat was a limited special edition.
So the name could be applied to something new, like the Jeep Wagoneer Tomahawk. It would fill in for the missing luxury SUVs with more than enough racing power.
What to expect with the Jeep Wagoneer Tomahawk
We hope that the Jeep Tomahawk has enough power and confidence to back up its title. Some say that the Dodge Challenger Tomahawk could be on the way as an electric muscle car. This makes sense as the Hellcat engine is on its way out.
But the Dodge Hornet and getting the Challenger EV out might be a bigger priority. Plus, the Dodge Durango hasn’t been redesigned in a few years.
So, the Jeep Wagoneer Tomahawk could arrive faster. The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six Hurricane engine with 510 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. This is an exciting amount of power, but not Tomahawk exciting.
The 2023 Cadillac Escalade V has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with 682 hp and 653 lb-ft of torque. So, the Wagoneer Tomahawk would only need a little extra muscle to take the Cadillac down.
When will we learn more about the Tomahawk name?
The Jeep Tomahawk could emerge in a few months. However, during Dodge Speed Week, Dodge will reveal three new muscle cars in August. The vehicles could be the Dodge Hornet, Dodge Challenger EV, and the last internal combustion engine option.
If the Tomahawk name isn’t mentioned during this week, then that could mean the title is reserved for a new Jeep.
While the Tomahawk name was first used back in 2003 for a motorcycle, things can change. The Maverick was transformed from a muscle car to a compact truck, so the possibilities are endless.
A Tomahawk is a light ax used as a tool and weapon by North American Indians. It represents heritage and survival in the wild. That seems more like a Jeep thing for adventuring instead of a muscle car title.
However, the Jeep Wagoneer Tomahawk could be just a rumor. We will have to wait a little longer to see where the Tomahawk lands. Stay tuned for the latest updates.
