30 years after the last Grand Wagoneer rolled off the Toledo Assembly Plant, Jeep has returned with an all new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer for the 2022 model year.

With Jeep returning to the fullsize three-row SUV market, here is what you need to know about the 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

1. Starting price

When you’re looking to spec out your Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer you should be aware of the price difference between the two SUVs.

The Wagoneer will have a starting price of $59,995 and the Grand Wagoneer starts at $88,995.

2. Engine options

Both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer come with V-8 engines as standard. The Wagoneer is powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 engine fitted with a 48-volt system that Jeep calls eTorque. It produces 392 horsepower and 404 pound-feet of torque.

The Grand Wagoneer is powered by a 6.4-liter V-8 that delivers 471 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque.

3. Enjoy best in-class towing

Regardless of which SUV you go with there won’t be a shortage of towing capability. With the right equipment the Wagoneer is rated to tow up to 10,000 pounds.

The Grand Wagoneer is right behind it with a tow rating of 9,860 pounds.


4. The tailgate window doesn't roll down

One thing that might disappoint Wagoneer enthusiasts is that the rear tailgate window won’t roll down in the new models. Jeep designers decided to ditch the feature because it would take away from interior space.

5. There won’t be any exterior wood.

Another classic Wagoneer feature that won’t be available on the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer is the exterior wood finish.

The only way to get wood is to get the wood interior option for the Grand Wagoneer.

6. Amazon Fire TV for Auto is an available option

The Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will be the first two vehicles to get Amazon Fire TV for Auto as an available option.

The system will integrate with Jeep’s fifth generation Uconnect infotainment system. It will allow passengers to stay entertained on long trips by streaming movies and videos.

7. There will be no shortage of Mopar accessories

If you want to make your Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer a little more unique there will be plenty of Mopar accessories to choose from.

Jeep says that Mopar will offer more than 75 factory-engineered accessories for the Wagoneer lineup.

9. Both Models are bigger than a Cadillac Escalade

If you’re in the market for a large SUV you won’t be disappointed with the size of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

Both SUVs are measured at 214.7 inches (5,453 millimetres) in length and have a wheelbase of 123 inches (3,124 mm), which is larger than competitors such as the Cadillac Escalade (211 inches long, 120.9 inch wheelbase).

10. Off-Road Capability

While the Wagoneer and Grand Cherokee aren’t Trail Rated like other Jeeps, they still have some off-road technology.

There are 3 available 4x4 systems (Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II) and Selec-Terrain traction management system.

Quadra-Trac I delivers standard full-time four-wheel drive without any switches to push. This transfer case is efficient for enhanced fuel economy and improves traction by moving torque to the wheel with the most grip.

The Quadra-Trac II’s two-speed transfer case uses input from sensors to determine tire slip at the earliest possible moment and takes corrective action. The system also uses throttle to anticipate quick movement from a stop and maximizes traction before tire slippage occurs. When wheel slippage is detected, as much as 100 percent of available torque is instantly routed to the wheel with the most traction.

Quadra-Drive II, with a rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD), delivers industry-leading tractive capability. The system instantly detects tire slip and smoothly distributes engine torque to tires with traction. In some cases, the vehicle will anticipate low traction and adjust in order to proactively limit or eliminate slip.

Both SUVs can come with Jeep’s Quadra-Lift air suspension system that’s able to add up to 3.6-inches of lift supported by four-corner air springs.

The Quadra-Lift system features five height settings:
  • Normal Ride Height (NRH): 8.0 inches of clearance offers improved fuel economy as well as improved aerodynamics during on-road driving
  • Off-road 1: Lifts the vehicle an additional 1.0 inches from NRH for added height in clearing obstacles (9.0 inches)
  • Off-road 2: Delivers legendary off-road capability and provides an additional 2.0 inches from NRH for 10 inches of ground clearance
  • Park Mode: Lowers the vehicle 1.6 inches from NRH for easy ingress/egress. NRH and Park Mode are driver selectable allowing the driver full control over vehicle ride height
  • Aero Mode: Lowers the vehicle 0.6 inches from NRH. Aero Mode is controlled by vehicle speed and adjusts for optimal performance and fuel economy. The vehicle will also lower to Aero Mode when in Sport Mode
