The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is getting some small but notable equipment and trim updates. Though the big flagship SUV is unchanged visually and mechanically, you’ll find slightly different groupings for standard and optional equipment. Additionally, there’s also a new range-topping trim for the 2023 model year.

What’s New For The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

The most notable news for the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 engine. It debuted for the 2022 model year, offering a 510 horsepower boost to the big SUV while using less gas compared to the standard 6.4-liter V8. The I6 was a $2,000 option across the entire Grand Wagoneer range for 2022, but now it’s standard in everything except the base trim. The 471 pony V8 is the only engine offered in the entry-level Grand Wagoneer, but it’s a no-cost option in higher-spec Obsidian trim levels.

2023 is also seeing a second Grand Wagoneer Obsidian spec. In addition to the Series II Obsidian that we saw for the 2022 model year, there’s now a Series III Obsidian that slots at the very top. It features an appearance package that adds black accents to the interior and exterior, along with 22-inch polished wheels. Additionally, eight-passenger seating with a second-row bench seat is standard for the base and Series II trims. Still, the seven-passenger layout with second-row captain’s chairs is an option.

With the former $2,000 engine upgrade now standard, you would expect the 2023 Grand Wagoneer to reflect that in its overall pricing, but that’s not the case. The base model remains $90,640, but the Series II drops to $97,735. The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Series II Obsidian also sees a decrease of $2,905, bringing its MSRP to $103,230. Series III costs $109,995, and the new Series II Obsidian is the most expensive at $111,635. All prices include Jeep’s $2,000 destination charge. Lastly, the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will begin arriving at dealerships in the second half of 2022.
