2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Asia's Tech News Daily

Pros

  • Lots of luxury features
  • Standard 471-hp V-8
  • Air suspension

Cons

  • Priced higher than competition
  • Same basic styling as cheaper Wagoneer
  • Terrible fuel economy

This is it—the $100,000 Jeep SUV has finally arrived. Although some trims of the new 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer fall well below six figures, the new three-row SUV attacks the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. Does this huge body-on-frame SUV have what it takes to succeed? Take a closer look at Jeep’s new flagship SUV below.

What about the less expensive 2022 Jeep Wagoneer? Get the story on that SUV here.

What We Think

If the Wrangler is on one end of the Jeep spectrum, the Grand Wagoneer is on the other. Whereas the Wrangler is a low-frills machine designed to get down and dirty, the Grand Wagoneer has everything—and then some—expected of a truly luxurious SUV.

In our First Drive, we were blown away by the level of design and quality found in the Grand Wagoneer’s cabin. Lovely leather, handsome wood, and solid metal covers nearly every surface. If a surface isn’t treated with such materials, it’s likely a display. Up to 75 total inches of digital real estate are available, with 45 of those inches situated in the front row alone.

Given how gigantic the Grand Wagoneer is outside, it doesn’t feel so large from behind the wheel. Rather, it rides and handles like a crossover a few sizes down despite its body-on-frame construction and three ton-plus curb weight. How spacious each row of seats is, however, proves that Jeep has figured out some sort of optical or mechanical illusion to make the Grand Wagoneer drive much smaller than it is.

Jeep’s latest foray into the luxury space seems like a success. The Grand Wagoneer delivers an upscale and enjoyable experience to rival any high-end SUV. It expands Jeep’s portfolio in a totally different direction than the rugged Wrangler.

Learn more about the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer in our pros and cons review.

How Much Will the Grand Wagoneer Cost? And What’s the Release Date?

Jeep prices the 2022 Grand Wagoneer a full $10,000 above the Escalade and Navigator. The Grand Wagoneer carries a starting price of $88,995 including a $2,000 destination charge. Unlike those two rival American luxury SUVs, however, the Grand Wagoneer comes standard with 4WD.

That’s for a Series I base model. Other trims include the Series II ($95,995), Obsidian ($100,995), and the top-of-the-line Series III ($105,995). The Obsidian trim is unique to the Grand Wagoneer, and will be available this summer, a short time after the other trims arrive.

What Engine Will the Grand Wagoneer Have?

Part of the 2022 Grand Wagoneer‘s price premium can be explained by its more capable powertrain. Whereas the Wagoneer has a 392-hp 5.7-liter eTorque mild hybrid V-8, the Grand Wagoneer gets a 471-hp 6.4-liter V-8 that’s good for 455 lb-ft of torque. As with the Wagoneer, the Grand Wagoneer uses an eight-speed automatic.

With such a voluminous engine motiving such a large body, fuel economy is predictably low. It’s rated at 13/19 mpg city/highway with RWD, or 13/18 mpg with 4WD. Competitor SUVs like the Lincoln Navigator are rated at 16/20 mpg city/highway with 4WD, and the Cadillac Escalade V-8 4WD comes in at 14/19 mpg.

Jeep has stated that all its models, including the Grand Wagoneer, will offer a battery electric powertrain by 2025.

Can the Grand Wagoneer Tow My Boat?

It might, yes. The Grand Wagoneer is rated to tow up to 9,850 pounds. That’s actually 150 pounds less than the Wagoneer RWD and 4WD models but more than the Cadillac Escalade’s 8,200-pound max and also more than the Lincoln Navigator’s 8,700-pound capacity.

What’s the Grand Wagoneer’s Seating Capacity?

The 2022 Grand Wagoneer can seat seven or eight, depending on the model you pick. Unlike the Wagoneer, the Grand Wagoneer comes standard with second-row captain’s chairs. That means the fancier Jeep’s seating capacity is seven, but a second-row bench seat—with seating for three instead of two—is available for an eight-passenger configuration.

Cargo capacity comes in at 27.4 cubic feet behind the third-row seats or 70.9 cubic feet when those third-row seats are folded down.

Let’s Talk About the 4WD System

Although the Wagoneer offers two less advanced systems (Quadra-Trac I and Quadra-Trac II), the Grand Wagoneer is only offered with Quadra-Drive II. This setup has a rear electronic limited-slip differential and five settings that include Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, and Sand/Mud. Moving from one mode to another adjusts the transmission shift points, transfer case, hill-descent control, and throttle sensitivity.

The Quadra-Lift air suspension is standard on the Grand Wagoneer and can rise up to 3.6 inches. We appreciated the tech on the Ram 1500 and look forward to testing it out on the Jeep. The feature is standard on every Grand Wagoneer.

Luxury Features

Luxury is defined not just by a set of features but by how a product makes you feel, and by the care with which it’s been put together. Having said that, the 2022 Grand Wagoneer should impress buyers in the showroom with curb appeal and tons of features.

Let’s start with the aesthetic upgrades. In addition to 22-inch wheels, the Grand Wagoneer also offers a two-tone roof option. Inside, a 1,375-watt McIntosh sound system is available, as are quilted leather seats and night vision and a console cooler. Or consider the start button, which is wrapped in leather with French stitching.

The power front seats are 24-way adjustable, with memory settings and a massage function. Check our trim guide for details on what features are available with each variant.

75 Inches of Digital Display Area: Excuse Me?

In a dealership or in an ad, you may see Jeep call attention to the Grand Wagoneer’s up to 75 inches of total screen display area. A full 25 inches more than the Wagoneer model, here’s what Jeep is talking about. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is part of the picture, as is a 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display. Like a Range Rover or some Audis, a lower 10.3-inch screen controls the HVAC system and some seat functions.

Still with us? Then there’s Jeep’s new front passenger screen. This 10.3-inch display can help the front passenger control entertainment, navigation, and even see exterior vehicle cameras. For the second-row passengers, there’s a 10.3-inch display for temperature and air-volume controls. Finishing things off are the two 10.1-inch entertainment touchscreens for the second-row passengers.
