What is the Jeep Wagoneer?
In a lineup consisting of all SUVs, Jeep's only blind spot was the full-size three-row segment. That void is now filled with the Wagoneer and its larger and more expensive sibling, the Grand Wagoneer. For the 2024 model year we don't expect any major changes to the Wagoneer, especially after its engine update last year.
The Wagoneer comes standard with a 5.7-liter V8 good for 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. Series II models and above now receive the turbocharged inline-six making a more stout 420 horsepower and 468 lb-ft. All Wagoneer models come with optional four-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission. This means the SUV can tow up to 10,000 pounds, depending on the spec.
All Wagoneer models come with a 10.1-inch touchscreen that includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. That display comes with a digital gauge cluster and the option for an additional screen directly in front of the passenger's seat to control the media and other settings. Beyond the barrage of screen real estate, the rest of the Wagoneer's cabin is filled with premium materials like leather and wood to keep the whole family comfortable on a long journey.
Because Jeep waited so long to bring the Wagoneer to market, it competes against a well-established group of competitors. This includes the Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, Toyota Sequoia and Ford Expedition. Each of those body-on-frame beasts offers a similarly luxe interior and a strong towing capacity. But the Wagoneer's ability to tow more than the rest of the class makes it a great option for some.
