Looking around, the full-size American SUV segment continues to flourish, with impressive sales numbers, rising average transaction prices, and strong demand. For example, the king of them all – the Cadillac Escaladeis one of the hottest SUVs on the market right now with an ATP of over $102,000. In short, driving a classic American big rig continues to be a popular customer preference, and now the Jeep brand is set to unleash a pair of behemoths onto the market in both the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer; a name we haven’t seen in a long while. On anticipation alone, plenty of ink has been spilled about these upcoming premium utility vehicles, and today, we’re reporting on their official EPA estimated fuel economy numbers.

2022 Jeep Wagoneer Fuel Economy Numbers

The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer will only have one standard powertrain option: the 6.4L Hemi V8. If you’re guessing that a luxury SUV from Jeep with a 6.4L V8 and three rows of seats probably doesn’t have great fuel economy, well, you guessed right. The Wagoneer has an EPA-rated fuel economy of 13/19/15 mpg city/highway/combined with its FWD drivetrain, or 13/18/15 with the AWD drivetrain, a single mile-per-gallon less.

Fuel Economy Expectations For A Luxury SUV

The big-engined Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer land behind both its Lincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade counterparts. Navigators with the RWD option get an EPA-rated 16/22/18 mpg (city/highway/combined mpg), and Navigators with the 4WD option get approximately 16/20/17 mpg. On the Cadillac side, the RWD Escalade with a 6.2L L87 V8 engine boasts a 15/20/17 mpg (city/highway/combined mpg) while the 4WD model steadies at 14/19/16 mpg. But it really reigns king of total range and fuel economy with its standard LM2 diesel engine, coming in at 21/27/23 mpg (city/highway/combined mpg).

Ultimately, when it comes down to the priorities and demands of the full-size luxury SUV customer, fuel economy isn’t exactly close to the top. So We can’t really see many customers walking away from the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer on the basis of a miles per gallon ratio.
