Wagoneer vs. Grand Wagoneer
Premier CDJRF Of New Orleans – Wagoneer vs. Grand Wagoneer
The news of the summer 2021 release of the all-new 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer is sweeping the country. Luxury SUV enthusiasts in Baton Rouge and Kenner are so excited to welcome back this legendary vehicle that they are lining up at Premier CDJRF Of New Orleans to place their orders. Both SUVs are built on the same body, but the Grand Wagoneer is the more luxurious of the two, with a base price of $88,995. The Wagoneer pricing starts nearly $30k less, at $59,995, and even fully loaded, it remains under the six-figure mark. But the decked out Grand Wagoneer tips in at $109,980 for all the tech, luxury, and function you could ever want in your new luxury full-sized SUV.
To get a better idea of the similarities and differences, we will compare some of these two family-friendly vehicles’ essential features.
The Exterior Comparison
Both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer use the same high-strength steel safety cage for exceptional safety. However, many added features and upgrades on the Grand Wagoneer create a more sophisticated appearance. The Grand Wagoneer can be purchased in Midnight Sky Blue, Rocky Mountain Green, or Ember Red. But the Wagoneer is offered only in silver. Other exterior upgrades on the Grand version include more chrome trim, an all-black roof, larger LED lights, an exclusive hood, and more defined fender flares. Wheel options range from 18 inches to 22 inches, and retractable running boards are available on both models. However, the power running boards are optional on the Wagoneer as opposed to being a standard feature on the Grand Wagoneer.
Under the Hood Comparison
Both SUVs’ standard equipment package includes a V-8 engine and automatic eight-speed transmission. The Wagoneer uses a 5.7L engine with cylinder deactivation and a 48-volt hybrid assist that Jeep calls called eTorque. The Wagoneer tops out at 392 horsepower and 404 foot-pounds of torque with the standard rear-wheel drive configuration. And it offers the superior towing capacity of 10,000 pounds when properly equipped.
The Grand offers 471 horsepower from a 6.4L V-8 engine and 455 foot-pounds of torque while providing the same cylinder deactivation. It also includes four-wheel drive as a standard feature and has a slightly lower towing capacity of 9,860 pounds. But in exchange, the Grand Wagoneer can go 0 to 60 in six seconds flat.
Inside the Cabin
As expected, the interior of the Grand Wagoneer is more well-appointed. The trims are slightly higher quality, and the dash layout is a bit more sophisticated. The Wagoneer comes with an eight-person capacity using a second-row bench seat. But it can be replaced with captain’s chairs as an option for a seven-person seating capacity. The opposite is true for the Grand Wagoneer. Other grand interior features include 24-way power-adjustable seats, four climate zones, more speakers for the McIntosh sound system, and larger entertainment screens.
