The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer marks the return of this iconic SUV to the marketplace and fills an empty spot in the Jeep lineup. It finally gives Jeep fans a three-row option with seating for up to eight passengers in a spacious and comfortable interior. There’s also a hefty dose of luxury that includes standard Nappa leather seats and a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen. Even the base trim of the Wagoneer delivers a luxury experience. Its standard V8 engine provides ample grunt to get this large SUV up to speed, making the Wagoneer an excellent tow vehicle option. And, since this is a Jeep, it has genuine off-road chops, offering three four-wheel-drive systems with varying degrees of capability.
The Jeep Wagoneer is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine with 392 horsepower and 404 pound-feet of torque. Paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, it’s a powerful engine that easily moves this large SUV up to highway speed. It’s aggressive and responsive with plenty of power to pass slower vehicles. This Jeep is a large SUV, and although drivers will feel its heft, it never seems sluggish. The transmission makes good use of the engine’s power with seamless, well-timed shifts. The ride is smooth, so potholes and imperfect road surfaces go unnoticed. Off-road, this luxury SUV is all Jeep with the capability to confidently tackle rocks, loose gravel, and muddy roads. It has all the trappings of a luxury SUV with the heart of an off-road vehicle.
The Jeep Wagoneer is available in three trim levels: Series I, Series II, and Series III. All models come standard with rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is offered across the lineup for an additional $3,000.
The entry-level Series I trim has a starting price of $57,995 (including a $2,000 destination fee). This model will be arriving later in 2021, and Jeep has yet to release details about standard and available features.
