The Wagoneer’s McIntosh Audio System Just Doesn’t Miss a Beat

Hollywood Chrysler Jeep Wagoneer Interior

Jeep hasn’t had a vehicle to slot in the three-row segment for more than a decade. However, the arrival of the Grand Cherokee L and top-tier Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models are changing all that. The public got its first real glimpse of the Wagoneer interior at the 2021 Chicago Auto Show, where the top-tier SUV was outfitted with an all-new McIntosh premium audio system. Perhaps it’s only the audiophiles who will be excited at the mention of McIntosh, but auto enthusiasts are about to reach new heights with these premium audio systems.

The Wagoneer models mark the first time McIntosh lends its name to an automotive speaker system. Buyers can choose from two different systems — MX950 and MX1375 Reference. 

MX950

The above-mentioned audio system features 19 speakers to the tune of 950 Watts and is available on both the Grand Cherokee L and Wagoneer models. 

MX1375 Reference

With a sound that’s hard to beat thanks to its 23 speakers and impressive 1,375 watts, the MX1375 Reference audio system from McIntosh is simply the best of the best. 

To showcase its sound prowess, McIntosh pre-selected a few high-resolution songs to put the Wagoneer to the test during the 2021 Chicago Auto Show. So what exactly makes McIntosh audio systems the ones to beat? Thanks to Unique Adaptive 3D Sound Processing, McIntosh is able to create a 3D surround effect in the vehicle’s cabin. Instruments and vocal elements envelop the interior thanks to the numerous speaker locations, recreating the effect of experiencing live music. 

The 12-inch subwoofer also packs a punch without sacrificing any quality. Other features that further enhance cabin acoustics include Power Guard Technology and a Low Distortion/High-Performance speaker design that ensures crystal clear sound at all volumes. Those interested in the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer can kiss sound distortion goodbye. 

Wagoneer Standard Luxury

Grand Wagoneer models come standard with a two-tone black accent roof, a distinctive front end, hood, grille, fender flares, power-retractable side steps, and unique premium LED lighting. The full suite of exterior LED lighting with Dynamic Turn Signal includes premium LED headlamps, taillamps, and fog lamps that all work together to amplify the Grand Wagoneer’s new aesthetic. Even the remote start feature takes things up a notch as the Grand Wagoneer’s exterior LED lights subtly turn on and engage in a “welcome” sequence. When equipped with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package, the Grand Wagoneer features front tow hooks that are bolted into the vehicle’s front end. 

Buyers can enjoy the most advanced Uconnect infotainment system to date with a 12-inch digital display and an enhanced intuitive user experience. There’s also an available 10.25-inch passenger screen complete with four major functions including Co-Pilot for navigation and device management, entertainment, Fire TV for Auto, and the ability to monitor the exterior-facing cameras.
