It’s been just a couple of weeks that we started to see the initial batches of 2022 Jeep® Wagoneer (WS) arriving on dealer lots across the country. The all-new Wagoneer builds on almost 30-years of heritage, premium American craftsmanship, and refinement in a true full-size SUV package offering a new level of comfort and legendary 4×4 capability. However, absent from the new WS lineup arriving on dealer lots was the more ultra-premium offering – the Grand Wagoneer.
This week we started seeing the first batch of 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer models arrive at dealers throughout the Midwest and the East Coast. The 2022 Grand Wagoneer is inspired by modern, sophisticated, and detail-oriented appointments crafted to exemplify American quality and personify prestige, success, and intelligence. A unified focus on integrated opulence and technology delivers an innovative experience for each passenger. The 2022 Grand Wagoneer Series I offers a starting U.S. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $89,845 (starting Canadian MSRP of $103,790) with destination charges.
Grand Wagoneer models feature a two-tone black accent roof, distinctive hood, front end, grille, unique premium LED lighting, fender flares, and power-retractable side steps as standard equipment. A full suite of exterior LED lights with Dynamic Turn Signal, including premium LED headlamps, fog lamps, and taillamps amplify the new aesthetic. Upon remote start, Grand Wagoneer’s exterior LED lights subtly engage with an available full “welcome” sequence.
Front tow hooks are incorporated into Grand Wagoneer’s front end when equipped with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package.
From the rear, LED taillamps stretch from the rear quarter panel to the liftgate, achieving an upscale appearance. Unique “Series” badging on the liftgate showcases how a particular vehicle is configured in a subtle way. A Class IV hitch is integrated into the rear bumper.
Grand Wagoneer models come standard on 20- or 22-inch aluminum wheels featuring a multitude of finishes and textures. A three-dimensional wheel cap highlighting the Wagoneer logo is suspended in acrylic.
While the original Grand Wagoneer famously featured extensive use of wood on its exterior, the new Grand Wagoneer features genuine handcrafted Satin American Walnut wood in abundance on the interior. Sculpted Satin American Walnut wood was chosen both for its elegance and durability. Grand Wagoneer features the latest, most advanced Uconnect system ever, with a 12-inch digital display and intuitive user experience. An available 10.25-inch passenger screen features four major functions: Co-Pilot (navigation, device management), entertainment (via HDMI or Rear Seat Entertainment control), Fire TV for Auto, and the ability to view the exterior vehicle cameras. Passenger screens in both the front and rear feature an HDMI plug, which lets occupants connect their phone or tablet, turning the touchscreen into a mirrored extension of their device, allowing internet searches, music, and app use to project through the Uconnect 5 system.
Available on Grand Wagoneer Series I and Series II, standard on Grand Wagoneer Series III, the premium and exclusive McIntosh MX1375 Reference Entertainment System, which employs 23 specifically tuned speakers, including one of the highest performing 12-inch subwoofers in the industry, is powered by a 24-channel 1,375-watt amplifier.
The Grand Wagoneer ups the ante with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 delivering 471 horsepower (351 kW) and 455 lb.-ft. (617 Nm) of torque. The 6.4-liter HEMI is mated to an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. All Grand Wagoneer models come with the legendary Quadra-Drive II four-wheel-drive (4×4) system. The Quadra-Drive II system features a full-time, two-speed transfer case with an electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD).
With seating for up to eight passengers on all models, Grand Wagoneer models feature a spacious third row (a first for the nameplate). Second-row captain’s chairs (another first-time offering) are standard on Grand Wagoneer and offer more comfort and space than any other vehicle in the segment.
This particular model painted in Baltic-Gray-painted 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Series I 4×4 is currently available (as of this writing) at Elgin Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram in Streamwood, Illinois. With a sticker price of $91,635 USD, this Grand Wagoneer Series I only has a couple of options. The first is the $595 option for the Baltic-Gray paint, the second option was to ditch the Black-painted roof for a monochromatic look at N/C, and the last was the $1,195 for the Front Passenger Interactive Display that makes its debut on the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer.
