Longer Wheelbase Grand Wagoneer is Coming Soon

February 4th, 2022 by

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is by far the brand’s most luxurious offering ever, challenging long-standing rivals like the Lincoln Navigator, Range Rover, G-Wagen, Cadillac Escalade and more for the top position in the luxury SUV segment. That said, Jeep also offers the Wagoneer as well. The Wagoneer model, unlike the Grand Wagoneer, offers buyers plenty of do-everything solutions. Recently, enthusiasts learned there’s a long wheelbase Wagoneer that’s slated to make its debut later this year (2022). 

Initially, the Wagoneer model was only available in predetermined trims, as well as options packages, but order books have changed plenty since they opened up last March. According to Mopar Insiders, there’s a new option open on the order books – the long-awaited baseline Series I version that was shown early on. The online configurator in the United States now finally shows the Series I Wagoneer, with a starting price of $58,845 (plus destination fee). 

Powered by a eTorque-assisted 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer Series I is lauded for its 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the eTorque system acts as fuel-saving technology, along with variable camshaft timing and cylinder deactivation. Compared to its siblings, the Wagoneer Series I is an entry-level alternative and its starting price shows it. Buyers can always opt for available upgrades such as a heads-up display, an advanced all-terrain package (4×4 configuration only), air suspension, and second row captains chairs. 

Wheelbase Changes for the Grand Wagoneer

Even though the Grand Wagoneer oozes excess, it’s still restrained when it comes to the full-size SUV segment. Other models such as the Escalade ESV, as well as several Ford models, offer an extended wheelbase. Jeep wants to tick off all boxes and is seemingly working on adding a long-wheelbase variant of the Grand Wagoneer to its lineup. The model is currently undergoing testing according to automotive journalists. 

More than additional third-row space and cargo room, the Grand Wagoneer with an extended wheelbase is rumored to carry over the features of its original shorter brother, including powertrain options. The addition of a plug-in hybrid 4xe powertrain is also imminent. However, the longer wheelbase Grand Wagoneer will not sport Jeep’s Trail Rated badging. Jeep will likely launch the longer wheelbase Grand Wagoneer either in 2023 or 2024.
