NBC’s This is Us Has Jeep Wagoneer Trending

No spoilers here… about the TV show. We already knew how awesome the Jeep Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer is!

Personally, I have never watched a single episode of NBC’s This Is Us, but I know that the show is great for Kleenex’s stock.

After a faulty switch had fans irate at Crock-Pot a couple weeks ago, they are now seemingly lusting for the Jeep Wagoneer (or the Grand Wagoneer to be correct), which was the focal point for a recent episode, “The Car.”

Again, without revealing any spoilers, the entire episode plays out as a Jeep commercial, with almost every scene taking place in or around the Grand Wagoneer. Jeep could even have a new tagline to consider as one of the character’s states that he wants the Jeep because “…every battle scar is going to be another memory.”

It didn’t take long for fans to fall in love with the Grand Wagoneer on social media, with many posting about the #jeepwagoneer hashtag on Twitter. And who can blame them? Jeep even sent out tweets in response to all the Wagoneer love.

The Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer lasted almost 30 years with relatively few changes, and it was only phased out in 1991 as Jeep prepared to launch Grand Cherokee in 1992. Jeep recently revealed a new three-row SUV for China called the Grand Commander, which could eventually be offered in the U.S. to revive the Grand Wagoneer name.

You can watch the Jeep-loving episode here, or just go ahead and binge watch the entire show. Apparently it’s good.
