With the debut of the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models, the automaker known for their 4×4 capabilities aims to turn over a new leaf. More specifically, Jeep intends to push up-market with these new luxury offerings aimed squarely at the Cadillac Escalade and other premium SUVs. And from what they’ve shown us so far, it appears that they’ve done just that. Loaded to the gills with premium materials and technology, as well as class-leading performance, these reborn icons are quite simply the most luxurious vehicle to ever wear the classic Jeep grille. At 12:00 PM ET today, Jeep live streamed the unveiling of both these SUVs.
Folks who are interested in watching the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer debut event unfold can either head over to automaker’s official YouTube Channel, or simply watch the stream replay via the embedded link below.
There hasn’t been a new Jeep Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer debut since 1993, though that hasn’t quelled the popularity of either model. In fact, the Jeep faithful are always quick to remind us that these two 4×4’s invented the whole luxury SUV segment here in the United States. And while that is certainly true, none of those original examples can really compare to the amenities on offer from these 2022 models. The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer for example is available with up to 75-inches of screens throughout the interior, which is excessive by any standard. Those screens however come with an industry first by way of Amazon’s Fire TV for Autos. This will give owners access to a massive catalogue of TV shows and movies for on-the-go enjoyment.
While the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer hasn’t debuted with nearly as much equipment as its more expensive sibling, the SUV packs a few interesting features of its own. Take the 5.7L V8 powertrain for example, which has been fit with the first application of Jeep’s next-gen eTorque hybrid system. This setup promises to provide best-in-class fuel economy, while also providing a maximum tow rating of up to 10,000 pounds.
Both the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer models are slated to go on sale this summer. The more affordable Wagoneer is set to carry a base price of $57,995, whereas those seeking more luxury will need to pony up $86,995 for the Grandest of all Jeeps. It is worth noting that these prices exclude the $2,000 destination charges buyers will owe the automaker.
