Wagooneer and the Grand Wagoneer

Almost 30 years after the last SJ Grand Wagoneer rolled out of Chrysler’s Toledo Assembly plant, Jeep has now given a rebirth to the legacy of Wagoneer.

Jeep Wagoneer and the Jeep Grand Wagoneer were one of the first full size four-door luxury SUVs back in the day. They debuted 7 years before Land Rover introduced Range Rover.

Unfortunately for Jeep, their flagship SUV’s production plummeted in the 1990 oil price shock after the Gulf War.

Howbeit, the renaissance of the Wagoneer with the majestic launch of the 2022 Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer has made the old Wagoneer fanboys go gaga.

Performance :

The Wagoneer is powered by a 5.7 litre V-8 rear-wheel drive producing an output of 392 hp and 404 lb-ft torque.

The Grand Wagoneer is on the other hand powered by a 6.4 litre V-8 all-wheel drive producing 471 hp and 441 lb-ft torque. It can do the 0 to 60 mph in under 6.0 seconds.

Interior :

Both Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer have impressive leather-fed interior. You upgrade to the Grand Wagoneer, you get more of the infotainment display in the cockpit and a quad-zone automatic climate control.

Trims and pricing : There are range of options available to choose from. The starting price howers around a 60 grand (60k USD) for Wagoneer Series I, which is cheaper than an entry-level 2021 Cadillac Escalade.
However the Wagoneer nameplate climbs the ladder upto 6 figures, with the variants at the the top of its hierarchial lineup. The priciest Wagoneer, is the Grand Wagoneer Series III that costs a solid 105 grand (105,995 USD).

The Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer almost looks identical to each other, and the one thing that differentiates Wagoneer from its more luxurious variant is the prominent Wagoneer badge on top of its grill.
