The order books open on Friday for Jeep’s first all-electric model.

The Wagoneer S was revealed in final production guise in New York on Thursday.

The Launch Edition trim that goes on sale first is a top of the line model priced at $71,995, including delivery fees and qualifies for the full $7,500 federal tax credit on EV purchases.

It has a 600 hp all-wheel-drive system and a 100 kilowatt-hour battery pack that’s good for 300 miles of range per charge.

While it provides all-weather and slippery surface traction, it’s dressed primarily for the street and can accelerate to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, which is quicker than the Tesla Model Y Performance that it will compete against.

It’s also quicker than the old Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which was similar in size and featured a 710 hp supercharged V8.

The Wagoneer S is a two-row vehicle with a spacious interior and a 30 cubic-foot cargo area.

The fully-loaded Launch Edition features all of the luxury amenities you would expect from a high-end Jeep, including an entertainment system for the front seat passenger and a 1,200-watt McIntosh audio system.

Jeep did roll out a rugged Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept alongside it, however, and is looking for customer feedback to decide if if should add it to the lineup. The Trailhawk gets a two-inch suspension lift, all-terrain tires, new bumpers with better clearance angles and an updated traction management system with more off-road focused settings.

It’s essentially the upcoming Jeep Recon electric SUV with a different body. The Recon is set to debut in production form in the coming weeks and is built on the same platform as the Wagoneer S, but has a boxier body and removable doors.
