SPOTTED: 2022 Jeep® Wagoneer Series II with Advanced All-Terrain Group:

Off-Road Wagoneer Has Been Spotted...

With the launch of the 2022 Jeep® Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer (WS) almost here, we have been breaking down the various trim levels and packages for Jeep’s newest series of SUVs. One of those articles that we posted last month, talked about the fact of the new Wagoneer duo being too large to obtain Jeep’s legendary “Trail Rated” badge.

Now while the Wagoneer duo are not Trail Rated, it still doesn’t mean they aren’t ready to tackle off-road obstacles. With two different Advance All-Terrain Group (AM2) options (one for the Wagoneer Series II and the other for the Wagoneer Series III), the package puts a number of off-roading goodies in the hands of Wagoneer owners.

The Advance All-Terrain Group comes with the following equipment…

  • 275/65R18 Falken Wildpeak A/T All-Terrain Tires (Wagoneer Series II)

  • 20-inch x 9-inch Machined Cast Aluminum with Satin Granite Crystal-Painted Pockets (Wagoneer Series III)

One of our readers happened to come across a few Wagoneer prototypes earlier this week near Lake Havasu, Arizona, where some Jeep engineers who were testing them were staying at a hotel. One of those vehicles happened to be an export model of the Wagoneer Series II with the Advance All-Terrain Group. 

This is our first time getting a look at the Wagoneer Series II with the Advance All-Terrain Group and we can tell it’s an export model by the lack of tint in the rear windows of the greenhouse. On the rear window, we can see some Michigan ORV stickers meaning that they have been testing this Wagoneer off-road.

There is also another export model, with a U-Haul trailer attached behind it. The all-new 2022 Jeep Wagoneer has a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. when equipped with the Heavy-Duty Trailer-Tow Group (ABR) which adds the following equipment…

  • Integrated Trailer Brake Control
  • Trailer Hitch Zoom
  • Trailer Hitch Line-Up Assist
  • 3.92 Rear Axle Ratio
  • Selec-Speed® Control
  • Electronic Limited-Slip Rear Differential
  • Heavy-Duty Engine Cooling
  • Tow Hooks, Front & Rear
  • Locking In-Vehicle Safe

Powering the Wagoneer Series II is the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with an eTorque mild-hybrid system. The 5.7-liter HEMI is good for 392 horsepower (292kW) and 404 lb.-ft. (548 Nm) of torque and is paired up with an 8HP75 8-speed automatic transmission.

The eTorque mild hybrid system replaces the traditional alternator on the engine with a belt-driven motor generator unit that performs several functions. The motor-generator unit works with a 48-volt battery pack to enable quick and seamless start/stop function, short-duration torque addition to the engine crankshaft in certain driving situations as well as brake energy regeneration, which improves responsiveness and efficiency.
With the engine running, eTorque’s motor generator unit feeds a 48-volt current to a 430 watt-hour lithium-ion Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC)-Graphite battery. In addition to spinning the engine for restarts, the eTorque unit also recaptures energy during deceleration and braking to feed charge to the battery pack.

The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer Series II 4×4 has a U.S. Manufactured Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $70,995 excluding destination, taxes, title, and registration fees. The Advance All-Terrain Group has an MSRP of $2,295 and the Heavy-Duty Towing Group gets a discount when equipped with the Advance All-Terrain Group, with an MSRP of $795 instead of $1,495 price.

Customers can choose from five exterior colors. Those colors include Bright White, Velvet Red, Diamond Black, Silver Zynith, and Baltic Grey (late availability). There are also two interior colors consisting of Global Black and Sea Salt/Black.

You can reserve a Wagoneer Series II at your local Jeep dealer, or by visiting Wagoneer.com. Vehicles will begin arriving this summer.

Good news the Series 11 All-Terrain Group now has the Falken Wildpeak A/T tires instead of the earlier news of Firestone all-terrains being on the Series 11. The Falkens are smooth running and very quiet for an A/T tire.
