Erin and Ben Napier Just Bought the Pearson Family Wagoneer From “This Is Us”
Fans of “This Is Us” will instantly recognize Ben and Erin Napier’s new ride. The Napiers just purchased the Pearson family Wagoneer that made appearances throughout the series, which just wrapped up its sixth and final season earlier this year. But the Napier’s Wagoneer is actually one of two Wagoneers that were featured in the show — and the other one was bought by another power couple.
Chris Sullivan, who played Kate Pearson’s husband/ex-husband Toby on the series, and his wife Rachel bought the second Wagoneer, and the two couples are currently deciding what to name their cars. But they already have a pretty sweet idea.
“Jack & Rebecca 4 Life,” Sullivan and Napier wrote in the caption of their shared Instagram post.
“‘This Is Us’ doesn’t need this Jeep anymore,” interjects Erin Napier, adding, “So what do we name it now?” The only stipulation is that one of the cars can not be called “Becky,” according to the Sullivans. Although, “Bec” could be a nice alternative.
The cars themselves are exactly the same, as they were used interchangeably throughout the series. They’re both 1990 Jeep Wagoneers that feature an iconic wood-paneled exterior siding.
Sullivan, a vintage car enthusiast, brought his Wagoneer home in May and told Entertainment Weekly, “My wife and I have been talking about that car for a long time,” adding that the Pearson’s Wagoneer, “is the only kind of vintage automobile that has ever sparked my wife’s interest.”
At the time, Sullivan was thinking he also would buy the second Wagoneer, but he revealed that he found the perfect caretakers to buy it instead.
We hope to see the Pearson family Wagoneer show up in upcoming episodes of “Home Town” soon!
