Bold Looks for a Big SUV
What is the Wagoneer?

The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer is a new full-size SUV with three rows of seating for passengers. To avoid any confusion, let's clarify first that the Wagoneer is not the Grand Wagoneer. Essentially, the Wagoneer is the standard model and the Grand Wagoneer is the ritzy version with additional standard and optional features, a more powerful standard engine and some exterior cosmetic differences.

At launch, the Wagoneer will be well placed to compete against its domestic large SUV rivals: the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Ford Expedition. Like those models, the Wagoneer has truck-like body-on-frame construction, a hefty maximum towing capacity and an abundance of interior space. Ten inches longer than the new three-row Grand Cherokee L, the Wagoneer is an option for larger families or buyers looking for greater overall capacity.

The Wagoneer boasts eye-catching, retro-themed design as well as respectable off-road capability. A number of styling cues pulled from the original Wagoneer are meant to root this big SUV in the mystique of the past. But this isn't necessarily the Jeep you want to buy if you're interested in conquering trails. There are three four-wheel-drive systems available (called Quadra-Trac I, II, and III) but Jeep says that the Wagoneer isn't "Trail Rated," so you probably won't be traversing the Rubicon with the family anytime soon. Instead, expect the Wagoneer to focus more on on-road comfort.

What's under the Wagoneer's hood?

At launch, the Wagoneer will get a 5.7-liter V8 (392 horsepower, 404 lb-ft of torque) paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a 48-volt mild hybrid system called eTorque. Unlike more traditional hybrid setups where a battery alone can power the vehicle, the Wagoneer's mild hybrid system fills in the gaps between shifts, helps with the stop-start system and slightly improves overall fuel economy.

If any of that sounds familiar, it's because it's the same pairing that's available under the hood of the Ram 1500. While Jeep insists that the Wagoneer is all-new and not based on any existing platform, it certainly shares a lot of hardware with the Ram 1500 — and we're OK with that. And though Jeep hasn't confirmed any specific details about future powertrains, we expect to see multiple offerings on the horizon, including a diesel engine and potentially a hybrid.

Whether you go with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, the Wagoneer has a 10,000-pound max towing capacity with the V8. This gives the Wagoneer bragging rights over the Tahoe (8,400 pounds) and Expedition (9,300 pounds).

How's the Wagoneer's interior?

Spacious and packed with modern features, the Wagoneer should be an excellent place to spend some time. Interior materials seem to be high-quality. While the high-dollar Grand Wagoneer will get big-budget items such as a four-screen control center across the dashboard, the standard Wagoneer will still get quite a bit of screen real estate, including a 10-inch center display. Cargo space is abundant, but it falls slightly behind class leaders. The Wagoneer, once you fold the second and third row flat, has 116.7 cubic feet of cargo space. The Chevy Tahoe, for comparison, provides 122.9 cubes.

How's the Wagoneer's tech?

The Wagoneer will use the newest version of Jeep's infotainment interface powered by Uconnect 5. It will also offer a 10.1-inch center screen and a 10.25-inch screen for the driver's gauge cluster. We've praised earlier Uconnect systems — they're quick to respond to commands and easy to use from the moment you get in the driver's seat. This new Android-powered Uconnect 5 system will operate more like a mobile device. It can process information five times quicker than previous iterations, allows for over-the-air updates of firmware and maps, has Amazon Alexa integration and enables two wireless phone connections simultaneously. (Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity is supported.)

EdmundsEdmunds says

Ford and Chevrolet currently dominate the large SUV market, but the reborn Wagoneer will give you a compelling alternative. It offers class-leading towing capability and a number of attractive design features. An expected comfortable ride and user-friendly tech round out the overall appeal. The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer has a real chance of taking the top spot in our large SUV rankings right out of the gate.
