The all-new 2022 Jeep® Grand Wagoneer (WS) continues to rack up the awards in its first year. This time, the premium full-size SUV has earned the title of “SUV of the Year” award at the 12th annual Hispanic Motor Press Awards (HMPA).
“Every year, there is a vehicle that surprises you and the Grand Wagoneer is the one this year,” said Ricardo Rodriguez-Long, President and Founder of the Hispanic Motor Press Foundation. “The Grand Wagoneer is a new high luxury entry that is tastefully done and includes the huge pluses of full-size SUV, 4×4 and it’s capable of towing almost 10,000 lbs. This is a vehicle that can take the family literally anywhere you want with comfort and connectivity.”
The 2022 HMPA Jury Panel is comprised of independent Hispanic automotive journalists, content creators, and industry influencers selected by the organization’s advisory board. Over 20 juror members from across the country evaluated more than 100 new vehicles during 2021 and into 2022. The jury panel evaluates vehicles based on their features, including overall design, comfort, safety, economy, handling, performance, functionality, infotainment integration, interior design, environmental requirements, driver satisfaction, and price.
“The interior design and quality are better than many luxury sedans, and they thought about including all the latest in connectivity,” said Aaron Sanchez, Executive Producer and Host of The Morning Show on ABC News Radio KMET 1490 AM. “We were all very impressed.”
“Earning the SUV of the Year honor from the Hispanic Motor Press is further validation that the Grand Wagoneer delivers on the refinement, technology, comfort, and capability that our customers tell us they want,” said Jim Morrison, Senior Vice President and Head of Jeep® North America. “The interiors on our new SUVs are second to none, so it’s rewarding when experts agree.”
