Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Editors' First Take

Jeep is finally getting into the three-row SUV space with the revamp of its Wagoneer nameplate. But what's a full-size SUV without a fancy-pants companion? Nothing, which is why Jeep is also resurrecting the Grand Wagoneer. Originally launched in 1962, the Grand Wagoneer is often considered the first true luxury SUV, complete with its iconic woodgrain exterior trim. For 2022, the wood paneling might be gone, but the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer both look to be solid contenders in this big-time segment.

The Grand Wagoneer is like the standard Wagoneer, but with a little extra. The Wagoneer is available in Series I, II and III trims; the Grand Wagoneer gets all those plus a high-level Obsidian model. Both Jeeps have LED lighting all around, but the Grand Wagoneer also gets a black roof, unique hood and different grille. Similarly, the Grand Wagoneer is available in three additional exterior colors and comes with black trim and badging, as well as body-colored wheel and door flares. Both Jeeps can be had with 20- or 22-inch wheels.

Having said all that, I really like the way both SUVs look, at least from certain angles. I'm not a fan of the slab-sided profile view, but overall the Wagoneer is a handsome rig, with futuristic-looking sequential turn signals and a handsome rear fascia.
