In this 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer review, we are going to have a close look at the largest SUV from the legendary automaker Jeep. We will dive into its engine, performance, interior, comfort, safety, pricing, and other relevant details to help you make an informed decision, in case you’re planning on buying this beast.

The Grand Wagoneer has hit the market as a more premium iteration of the Jeep Wagoneer. That’s precisely what it is—it carries the charm, safety, off-road ability, and comfort of the Wagoneer, but at a more grand scale. Without a doubt, this is one of the best vehicles you can get your hands on in the large luxury SUV segment.


The premium touch is noticeable in every corner of the vehicle. For an audience that prefers the upscale feel, this lineup is a treat to ride.
The cabin is thoughtfully designed, with ample features to offer a cozy and soothing experience. There is no lack of space even for big family trips, and the boot space is also more than adequate.
Jeep’s standard safety and driver-assist suite is remarkable in itself, and it also comes with a bunch of optional features.


The usual complaint we make against most large SUVs is their low fuel economy. The same goes here—the vehicle is highly fuel thirsty.
Handling is not always smooth. The vehicle gets held back by its heavy weight and size.

Performance, Engine, and Comfort

The good news is that the biggest Jeep doesn’t compromise on comfort and convenience while focusing on offering good performance. It attempts to balance all aspects and does a pretty decent job.

Engine & Performance

The engine is, without a second thought, one of the most powerful out there. However, when it comes to performance and handling, minor road jitters could be an issue.


The vehicle is powered by a 6.4-liter V8 engine with an output of 471 hp. Based on which trim you pick, you might also get a 3-liter 6-cylinder engine with an output of 510 hp.


The engine is paired with 8-speed automatic transmission.


It comes with front control arms and multilink rear suspension. The independent rear suspension ensures the passengers enjoy a smooth ride. Thanks to the air suspension system, you can increase or decrease the ride height of the vehicle by a few inches.


The steering has a light and numb feel, something hardcore car enthusiasts will not appreciate. In terms of material, you get a heated steering wheel covered in leather.

Safety & Reliability

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have not yet rated the vehicle. However, you can get a comprehensive idea of the lineup’s safety and reliability by looking at what the company offers as a part of its safety suite.


It comes equipped with ventilated front disc and solid rear disc brakes. The lineup also comes with emergency braking assist as a part of its safety features.


The Grand Wagoneer is well-equipped with airbags to keep the driver and the passengers safe in case a collision occurs. There are dual front side-mount airbags, as well as head airbags for the front, rear, and third row.


There is no dearth of standard and optional electronic safety features in this lineup. Some notable ones include forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, pre-collision safety system, 4-wheel ABS, and tire pressure monitoring, among other features.


There are LED headlamps, daytime running lights, front fog lamps, as well as cornering lights.

Traction control

It comes with an advanced traction control system, enduring the vehicle has a good road grip while driving through slippery road conditions.

Fuel Economy

The lineup has a high fuel consumption, no matter which engine size you opt for.

Engine size

Under the hood of the Grand Wagoneer is a 6.4-liter V-8 16-valve pushrod engine, with an output of 471 hp @ 6000 rpm and torque of 455 lb-ft @ 4400 rpm. A limited number of vehicles will get the 6-cylinder Hurricane engine for an extra $2000.

Gas per mileage consumption

It offers 13 mpg and 18 mpg respectively, on city and highway.


The vehicle comes with standard three-row design, offering enough space for a big family with kids. Ideal for 7-8 people, the Grand Wagoneer is massive in size, inside out. Be it the exterior or the interior, the materials and designs ooze luxury, and make you feel like you’re driving something rare and premium.


There are three spacious rows, with ample legroom and headroom on all. The driver gets a 8-way power seat with height adjustment and lumbar support. The front passengers also get 8-way power seats. Ventilated seats and multi-level heating are available for both the driver’s and the passengers’ seats. For additional comfort, the rear seats can be reclined. The interior is draped in premium materials, and you can feel all the more luxurious with the ambient lighting.


The design language of the Grand Wagoneer is bold and outdoorsy, something that you’d typically expect off a Jeep. Everything from the classic front grille to the stylized wheels make heads turn as you take your vehicle out for a spin.


The infotainment system is well-equipped and easy to handle. There is a 12-inch centre touchscreen, with features such as satellite radio, wifi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and McIntosh stereo, to mention a few.

Overall height and space

The vehicle is 214.7 inches long, 83.6 inches wide, and 75.6 inches in height. The total passenger volume amounts to 179 cubic feet.

Trunk space

There is 27 cubic feet of cargo area available behind the third row, and if you fold it down, you’ll have 71 cubic feet located at the back of the second row. Either way, the trunk space is large enough to accommodate your luggage, be it for a short day-trip or a long tour.

Price and Extras

When we are talking about the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, pricing is often a big factor. However, for luxury buyers this price is more or less on the predictable lines—all you have to look for is that the offerings and the equipment are worth the money you’re paying.

Market Price

The target audience for the Jeep Grand Wagoneer is the luxury user, so the six-figure mark is quite expected. It’s available in 5 trim levels—Series I, Series II, Obsidian, Series III Premium, and Series III. All the models starting from the bottom level to top, ensure high value and excellent performance, so it can be tough to pick one. Series II and Obsidian are good choices in the mid-range, with ample standard features and luxury additions in the cabin.

Trim Level Price 
Series I $89,995
Series II $99,995
Obsidian $105,490
Series III Premium $109,980
Series III $109,995


The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer comes with standard all-wheel drive across all trim levels.


Jeep’s warranty front is good but nothing chart-busting. Every purchase is backed by a limited warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles, and a powertrain warranty of 5 years or 60,000 miles. The vehicle gets complimentary scheduled maintenance for three years, irrespective of how many miles you’ve driven it—this is a pretty good deal as most automakers either skip the free maintenance or cap the miles.


The vehicle comes with a massive towing capacity of 9850 pounds. This is truly a remarkable number even for a large SUV.


The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer won the ‘Unanimous Choice’ award at Wards 10 Best Interiors & User Experience Award.


Every few years, an SUV enters the market that’s the closest to being flawless, and wins over critics and driving enthusiasts in the blink of an eye. The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is one such lineup, and for all the good reasons. It’s as much a family vehicle as it is an off-road car. The spacious interior and standard third row make large families happy, with enough boot space to keep luggage comfortably. You could make use of its amazing towing capacity, and at the same time, enjoy the premium cabin equipped with modern luxuries. The not-so-composed riding experience and the low fuel economy are the only turnoffs, but otherwise this one is a great package.
