2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Prices, Reviews, and Pictures

The Grand Wagoneer, which is priced at the highest possible Jeep price, is the most spacious, luxurious, and roomiest SUV from the legendary brand. The Grand Wagoneer is also capable of towing heavy loads and traversing rough terrain. This makes it an interesting alternative to the less-capable luxury SUVs in this segment.

Overview

After flirting with offering a large seven-to-eight-passenger SUV to compete with the likes of the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator for decades, Jeep finally has its luxury flagship. The new Jeep Grand Wagoneer and the less expensive Jeep Wagoneer are both built on a brand-new architecture. They borrow some of the Ram 1500 pickup’s key chassis and powertrain components. The Grand Wagoneer offers the same four-wheel-drive system and go-anywhere capabilities that all Jeeps have, but on a larger scale.

The new Grand Wagoneer is a little longer than the Escalade or Navigator, but shorter than the Escalade ESV and long-wheelbase Navigator. It can fit in more garages than longer SUVs. The spacious, squarish shell offers ample cargo and passenger space.

The Grand Wagoneer’s new features include an adjustable air suspension, night vision and Amazon Fire TV. Soon, Jeep will offer the Hands-Free Active Driving Assist.

Pricing and Trims

The 2022 Grand Wagoneer is available in four trim levels from Jeep: Series I, Series II, Obsidian and Series III. All models come standard with four-wheel drive. The Obsidian model is the most sought-after, and we recommend it. Check out the equipment breakdown.

Engine and Performance

Grand Wagoneer’s engine is a 6.4-liter Hemi Hemi V8 engine, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It generates 471 horsepower and 455 pounds-feet torque. This V8 is Jeep’s largest and most powerful, except for the 707-hp 6.2L V8 under the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s hood. It can effortlessly accelerate the big 6,200-6,400-pound Grand Wagoneer from rest to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds accompanied by an authoritative-sounding dual-exhaust burble.

The Grand Wagoneer’s engine performance compares to the Cadillac Escalade (6.2-liter V8 420 hp/460 Lb-ft) or Lincoln Navigator (3.5-liter twin turbocharged V6 440 hp/510 Lb-ft). The Grand Wagoneer’s Hemi V8 is quick to overtake slower vehicles on the road and can make short work of freeway merging. The Selec-Terrain mode selector in Sport mode increases engine revs and drops the transmission a few gears for faster throttle response.

The seven-to-eight-passenger Grand Wagoneer is a full-size SUV weighing more than 3 tons, but it glides over a wide spectrum of road surfaces with its standard all-independent air suspension despite rolling on 20- or 22-inch tires. The load-leveling function of the air suspension prevents the rear end from sinking under heavy loads. It can also be adjusted to suit different conditions. You can raise it 2 inches above its 8-inch stock height to increase off-road ground clearance. It can also be lowered by 0.6 inches when Sport mode is selected. This improves aerodynamics. You can also lower it by 1.5 inches while it is parked to allow passengers easy access to the cabin.

Semi-active suspension damping is also available on the air springs to complement the Jeep’s balanced 51% front and 49% rear weight distribution. The Grand Wagoneer’s four-wheel disc brakes are strong and can slow it down with confidence.

You can adjust the weight of the rack-and-pinion steering that is electrically boosted by a motor in the drive mode settings. Variable-ratio steering can also be used, providing quick response at low speeds to facilitate maneuverability and a more stable feel at higher speeds.

When equipped with the available towing kit, the Grand Wagoneer can tow 10,000 pounds. This is more than the Escalade 4WD’s 8,000-pound towing capacity and the Navigator’s 8,300-pound maximum towing limit.

Interior

The Grand Wagoneer’s high seating position makes it easy to get in and out. Standard deployable side steps fold out when you open doors and slide under the body when closed. The cabin has high-quality, soft-touch and wrapped surfaces as well as genuine metal and wood trim. The standard size perforated leather-covered front seat is large and heated. They also have a bottom cushion and seatback massage capabilities. The leather-wrapped steering column adjusts for tilt and rake electrically. Driver is presented with a configurable 12.3-inch multiview cluster display.

A customizable 10-inch head up color display is available at the base to show road speed, turn by turn navigation, speed limit signs, status of driver assistance systems, and other information.

The super-wide console between the front seats houses the rotary shifter, two armrests and cupholders. There is also ample storage in the deep center bin that can be configured as a cooler, or lockable safe. Auxiliary controls for air-suspension ride height settings and SelecTerrain drive modes are also found in the console.

Standard second-row seating includes a pair of captains chairs. An optional 40/20/40-split benches is available. The power tip-and slide function for second-row chairs makes it easy to access the spacious 60/40-split seat in the third row. Grand Wagoneer’s boxy design allows for more interior space and provides significantly more head- and legroom in the second- and third rows than the Cadillac Escalade.

Grand Wagoneer’s cargo area is also impressive, with 70.9 cubic yards available when the third-row seat is folded down, and 94.2 when second-row chairs fold down. All of this can be accessed via a power-assisted liftgate, which allows for hands-free access. The Grand Wagoneer is the most spacious Escalade and Lincoln Navigator, with 27.4 cubic yards behind the third-row seat.
