Wagoneer vs. Grand Wagoneer
Premier CDJR Of Buena Park | Wagoneer vs. Grand Wagoneer
The Jeep specialists at Premier CDJR of Buena Park are excited to announce the Wagoneer line’s return. The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will be rolling into dealerships in the summer of 2021. But customers are already eagerly placing preorders to ensure that they receive their luxury full-sized SUV as soon as possible. While both SUVs use the same body, the Grand Wagoneer is the more luxurious of the two, as the $88,995 price indicates. The Wagoneer is priced nearly $30k less, with a starting price of $59,995. And when fully loaded, the Grand Wagoneer can easily crack the six-figure mark to reach $109,980. The Wagoneer remains under $100k when fully decked out.
If you are trying to decide which version of the Wagoneer line you want to drive home to Los Angeles or Long Beach this summer, let’s compare some key features to help you make a well-informed selection.
The Exterior Comparison
As we mentioned, both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer use the same high-strength steel safety cage and body. However, when it comes to the trim packages and the appearance features, the Grand Wagoneer offers many exclusive features and upgrades.
The most apparent distinction between the two vehicles is that the Wagoneer is offered only in a silver exterior. The Grand Wagoneer can be purchased in Midnight Sky Blue, Rocky Mountain Green, or Ember Red. Other exterior upgrades include a sporty all-black roof, more interesting LED lights, a premium hood, and more defined fender flares. Both vehicles offer wheel options ranging from18 inches to 22 inches and retractable running boards. However, the power running boards are a standard feature only on the Grand Wagoneer.
The Mechanical Comparison
Both models offer V-8 engines and automatic eight-speed transmissions as standard equipment. The Wagoneer includes a 5.7L with cylinder deactivation and a 48-volt hybrid assist called eTorque. This combo puts out 392 horsepower and 404 foot-pounds of torque. The standard rear-wheel-drive configuration is also rated to tow up to 10,000 pounds when properly equipped.
The Grand steps up to a 6.4L V-8 with a massive 471 horsepower and 455 foot-pounds of torque while offering the same cylinder deactivation. This version of the Wagoneer includes four-wheel drive as a standard feature and a towing capacity of 9,860 pounds. But the slight trade-off in towing is made up for in the claim that the Grand Wagoneer can go 0 to 60 in six seconds flat.
In the Cabin
As the name implies, the interior of the Grand Wagoneer is plusher and more luxurious. The trims are slightly higher end, and the dash layout is a bit more refined. The Wagoneer is set up for an eight-person capacity. In comparison, the Grand has second-row captain’s chairs standard for seven passengers. But there are other seating options for both SUVs. Other grand interior features include 24-way power-adjustable seats, four climate zones, and a larger McIntosh sound and speaker system.
