The legendary SUV came back after years of waiting. This time, it is bigger and more luxurious than ever and if we consider that 2022 was the first model year of the new generation, it’s hard to expect any bigger changes from the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. The second production year shouldn’t bring any important changes, though there is always a chance t see minor updates, such as new standard features and color options. Also, some sources speculate about the Trailhawk edition, which would bring some additional off-road features.
In any case, we have no doubt that the overall layout will remain the same. The new model is a capable off-roader but also offers a smooth and comfortable on-road ride. Furthermore, we like its super-luxurious and well-equipped cabin, as well as generous passenger and cargo room. Finally, we like its powerful V8 powertrain, which isn’t just capable but also sounds great in today’s world that’s overflowed with turbochargers.
Since there are no significant changes to come, we expect that the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Design
The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will represent the second production year of the revived generation and therefore, it’s hard to believe that any bigger changes could occur. Simply, this is still a very fresh model, which features a brand-new design, which brings great styling, as well great ride quality. The adjustable air suspension is part of the standard equipment, which makes the ride butter-smooth, even though we are talking about an SUV that’s essentially based on the Ram 1500 pickup. On the other hand, the big benefit from the BoF design comes in the form of max towing capacity, which goes all-away up to 9.850 pounds.
Some sources speculate about the Trailhawk version that could be introduced next year. Of course, this version would bring additional off-road upgrades, such as locking differentials, upgraded suspension and similar things. Still, we have to say that the standard model is already a pretty capable off-roader, which comes standard with goodies like adaptive air suspension, rear load-leveling, a two-speed transfer case, a limited-slip differential, and hill descent control, and a terrain management system.
When it comes to interior design, we don’t expect any changes. Simply, the new model brought impressive interior quality, characterized by super-fine materials and great build quality. There’s also a lot of attention to detail, while the long list of tech features makes this cabin look even better.
The amount of space is impressive. All three rows accommodate adult passengers with ease, even the third row. The cargo area is also very generous with space. You may count on about 27.4 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats, 70.9 cubic feet behind the second row and 116.7 cubic feet of the total cargo volume.
A couple of novelties could come but if we consider that this will be the second production year, it’s easy to conclude that most of the things are about to remain the same. So, the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer should come standard with tech features like a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12-inch touch screen, 10.25-inch second-row display, navigation, a 19-speaker McIntosh audio system, HD Radio, satellite radio, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa, wireless device charging, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The list of options should include an interactive front passenger display, a 23-speaker McIntosh audio system, and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system.
The same thing is with safety features. All models should come standard with a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rearview camera, parking sensors, surround-view camera, park assist etc.
2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Engine
Things under the hood definitely won’t change. The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will continue with a good-old 6.4-liter V8 HEMI engine, which features a max output of 471 horsepower. That’s plenty of power for strong driving dynamics and a convenient ride, while the 8-speed automatic transmission works great. Of course, four-wheel-drive is standard.
As we already mentioned, a properly-equipped Grand Wagoneer can tow up to 9.850 pounds, which is probably the highest rating in the class. On the other hand, the fuel economy is among the worst in class. You may expect no more than 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release Date and Price
Since there are no significant changes to come, we expect that the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year. We don’t expect bigger price changes either, so base models should go around 88.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, Range Rover etc.
