Wagoneer vs Grand Wagoneer

Luxury 3-row SUVs, like the 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, make for comfortable commutes around Saline, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

These two SUVs share a lot of the same features as well as some differences, and we’ll look at them in this Wagoneer vs. Grand Wagoneer comparison. Both models are available here LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Saline, so stop in for a test drive.

Wagoneer vs Grand Wagoneer: Engine Capacity

You expect a large SUV to come with a strong engine, and that’s the case with Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Both are equipped with robust V8 engines that are paired with 8-speed automatic transmissions to produce some serious power. Check out the metrics below:

  • Wagoneer 5.7L V8 engine: 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque
  • Grand Wagoneer 6.4L V8 engine: 470 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque

As you can see, the engine of Grand Wagoneer is more powerful. However, Wagoneer’s engine is unique in that it comes with eTorque, a mild-hybrid system that provides some advantages.

One of those advantages is better fuel economy. With Wagoneer, you can travel at an EPA-estimated 16 city and 22 highway MPG. On the other hand, Grand Wagoneer allows you to travel at an EPA-estimated 13 city and 18 highway MPG.

Wagoneer vs Grand Wagoneer: Capability

In terms of capability, both Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are strong enough to pull your heaviest gear. When properly equipped, the maximum towing capacities are:

  • Wagoneer: 10,000 pounds
  • Grand Wagoneer: 9,850 pounds

Though Wagoneer tows slightly more, both models are muscular machines. They’re each ready to tackle your off-road adventures through 4×4 systems.

On Grand Wagoneer, a 4×4 system comes standard. On Wagoneer, however, you’ll find a standard 4×2 configuration and can upgrade to one of three available 4×4 systems. With a 4×4 system on your SUV, you’ll have access to the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System to traverse a variety of surfaces with greater stability.

Wagoneer vs Grand Wagoneer: Interior Seating & Amenities

Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer both offer roomy interiors and plenty of seats for passengers. The biggest difference is that Wagoneer comes standard with 8-passenger seating, while Grand Wagoneer has standard 7-passenger seating.

If your needs are different than the standard seating arrangements, you can upgrade to 7-passenger seating in Wagoneer and 8-passenger seating in Grand Wagoneer. With these options, you can design a vehicle that is tailored to your family’s transport needs.

In addition to those seating arrangement choices, there are plenty of amenities to keep everyone comfortable. These standard features include:

  • Heated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Driver seat memory

In Grand Wagoneer, you’ll see certain amenities on a grander scale in comparison to the regular Wagoneer. For example, Wagoneer provides standard 12-way power-adjustable front seats, while Grand Wagoneer has 24-way power-adjustable front seats.

Grand Wagoneer also comes standard with 4-Zone Automatic Climate Control compared to Wagoneer’s Tri-Zone Climate Control. This extra zone adds a little more customization to your cabin when it comes to deciding on the temperature.
