Review: This Is the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer to Get!

It comes down just to two things.

The long wait for the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer is over. Which one should you get if you are considering a full-size truck-based three-row SUV? After spending several hours behind the wheel of the new Grand Wagoneer – the answer is clear.

While the 2022 Wagoneer is the new entry into this giant SUV segment for Jeep – the one to get is the Grand Wagoneer. Why? It comes down to two things – the luxurious and spacious interior & the power plant! The Grand Wagoneer comes standard with a 6.4-liter V8 that is rated at 471 horsepower. It produces a classicly great sound from its dual exhaust system and brisk acceleration – when needed. The Wagoneer offers a 5.7-liter V8.

While the Wagoneer also has a spacious interior, the Grand Wagoneer piles on the luxury with a new twist on the classic American theme. The interior really makes you feel special.

This giant luxury liner (the 2022 Grand Wagoneer) actually feels likes a much smaller SUV once you get it on the road. It is still based on a ladder frame (similar to the Ram 1500), but it offers a four-corner independent suspension with height-adjustable air springs. The powerful engine helps make it feel smaller as well.

I had an opportunity to tow a 7,000 lbs horse trailer at the event, and the big SUV handled it in stride. While I was not able to get up to highway speeds with the trailer on my drive route, the Grand Wagoneer provided the stability and confidence when pulling a trailer. At times, it didn’t even feel like I was towing anything. The Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are rated to tow up to 10,000 lbs – mainly thanks to a standard hitch received that is welded into every Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer frame.

There is a price for all of this power and luxury. The 2022 Grand Wagoneer starts at $87,590 (before destination charges). A fully optioned Grand Wagoneer will sticker at around $106,000.

Is it really better than the competition from Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, Lexus LX, and others? I definitely feel like the interior of the Grand Wagoneer is more welcoming than most. It also offers the addicting power of the 6.4-liter V8. I would have to spend more time on the new Wagoneer lineup and test them back to back to show you all the pros and cons.
