The Wagoneer is an important moniker in Jeep’s automotive history but it had to be discontinued in 1991. Thirty years later, Jeep has resurrected the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer names for its new luxury SUV offerings. After teasing them in concept form in the second half of 2020, Jeep has now unveiled the production-spec models. Both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are three-row luxury SUVs, resembling the Grand Wagoneer concept. Some of the key differences over the concept include the grille design, tail lamps, and wheels. Jeep seems to have skipped the illuminated grille which is now more prominent, like the one seen on the new India-bound Grand Cherokee L. Its boxy shape is accented by the wider wheel arches for a strong road presence. The visual differences between the Wagoneers are few with the Grand Wagoneer featuring more chrome, a distinctive front bumper, a black roof, and, of course, the word ‘Grand’ added to the badge. 

 

 

It does not get a lightbar around the back to connect the tail lamps, instead, it comes with an insert just above the number plate housing. The rear is the boxiest aspect of the new Wagoneers with only a few tasteful creases on the tailgate design. While the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are the same in size, they are considerably longer, wider, and taller than the new Grand Cherokee L. Notably, the Wagoneers use a body-on-frame structure, unlike the Grand Cherokee’s unibody underpinning. The Wagoneer looks massive from the inside as well with its opulent cabin and standard Nappa leather upholstery. It has Jeep’s latest two-spoke steering wheel in front of the 10.3-inch digital driver’s display and a 10.1-inch central touchscreen infotainment system with UConnect 5.
