Auto manufacturers often take different routes to engage with their consumers. Jeep is the latest automaker to take such a strategy. Jeep Wagoneer S all-electric SUV is an upcoming product from the Stellantis-owned SUV major. While currently, Jeep is calling it Wagoneer S, the automaker is also looking for a better and more suitable official name when it goes on sale. The company has already launched a contest soliciting potential nomenclatures for the electric SUV. It has also promised to give a prize money of $40,000 to the person whose proposed name gets chosen. The contest runs between November 23 and December 2 this year. The automaker has also launched a website to accept submissions, with a form to fill out.
Jeep has said that the name of the upcoming electric SUV has to be within 50 characters. The automaker further added that the grand prize winner would receive a ski trip to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The package includes airfare, lodging, lift tickets, rentals, guide or instruction, and a $1,000 gift card to the retail store.
