Both the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Got the Thumbs-Up From This Critic
Jeep is a very well-known American automaker, and it specializes in SUVs that can go off-road. Thanks to the growth of the American SUV market, Jeep has invested more into the segment, and two of the company’s latest SUV models are the Wagoneer and the more luxurious Grand Wagoneer. Here’s a look at the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer and why a car critic was impressed by both of them.
This is what Motor1 had to say about the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer
Motor1 recently reviewed the Wagoneer, giving the Jeep SUV a score of 8.6 out of 10. The large SUV starts at about $61,000, and despite that relatively MSRP, it’s actually quite a bargain, especially if car shoppers go for one of the higher trims. One of the main draws of a large SUV is interior space, and that’s precisely what the Wagoneer provides in all three rows of seats.
What separates the Wagoneer from other large SUVs though is the amount of cargo capacity that it has when the seats aren’t folded. This is especially true for the L trim of the SUV. That trim has 42.2 cu-ft of cargo space without folding any seats, and that’s the most out of any full-size SUV. Additionally, the automaker gave the Wagoneer a brand-new engine recently.
It starts with a 5.7-liter V8 that gets 392 hp, and it can also be equipped with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder that gets 420 hp. That six-cylinder engine not only allows the Jeep to drive better, but it’s also more efficient. The most impressive features about the car, however, are in its cabin. It’s luxurious and high-tech, and it features a standard 10.1-inch touchscreen display.
The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer got the same score as its sibling
The Grand Wagoneer is similar to the Wagoneer in many ways, but it differs primarily in its features. As such, it’s not surprising that Motor1 gave it the same high score as the site gave the Wagoneer. The Grand Wagoneer starts at about $88,000, and one of its main differences is under the hood. It starts with a 6.4-liter V8 that gets 471 hp.
However, Jeep also gave it a similar 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that the Wagoneer received. There’s a difference between the two engines though, as the Grand Wagoneer’s gets 510 hp, and it allows the SUV to drive much better than before. That being said, it’s relatively similar to the Wagoneer in terms of cargo capacity.
As far as tech and luxury features go, that’s an area where the Grand Wagoneer simply has more of everything. It comes standard with a massive 45-inch array of screens. The first two rows of seats are heated as standard, and the first row seats also come with a massage feature. Overall, Motor1 gave the Grand Wagoneer’s tech features a perfect score of 10 out of 10.
Why these two Jeep SUVs have impressed critics and consumers
Despite being relatively new SUVs, the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer have been impressive because of how luxurious they are despite their price. Jeep has simply given the two cars a lot of value for their price, and that’s especially true if car shoppers add on one of the many packages that the automaker offers.
That great value allows the Jeep SUVs to stand out from its rivals, as they usually have fewer luxury features. That said, this is also where their main issue comes to light. Both SUVs are more expensive than non-luxury full-size SUVs, so car shoppers may have a tough time affording one.
