After the recent launch of the new generation of the revived legend, the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will represent the second production year. Therefore, it’s hard to believe that more significant changes could happen. We expect that the next year’s model will continue in the same way, with familiar design and features. However, some sources speculate about the possibility to see the Trailhawk version, which would offer even more off-road features.
In any case, the overall layout will remain the same and you may count on the same pros and cons. There are so many things to like about this SUV. We like its luxurious cabin, as well as a pretty generous passenger room. The list of standard equipment is pretty long, while the good-old V8 moves this SU with authority. On the other hand, the biggest complaint goes to poor fuel economy.
As there are no significant changes to come, we believe that the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Design
Considering that the design of this full-size SUV is very fresh, it’s pretty much for sure that the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will continue in the same way, without more important changes. The overall design will remain the same, though minor updates are always possible, in terms of new color options and similar things.
On the other hand, some sources speculate about the Trailhawk version, which provides even more impressive off-road performance. The current model already comes with things like adaptive air suspension, rear load-leveling, a two-speed transfer case, a limited-slip differential, hill descent control, and a terrain management system. We presume that the Trailhawk would come with further suspension upgrades, additional skid plates, locking differentials and similar things.
When it comes to interior design, we don’t expect to see any bigger changes. The overall cabin design will remain the same and that’s definitely a great thing. The new SUV features an impressive interior design, with attractive aesthetics, super-fine materials and great overall build quality. You can easily notice a lot of attention to detail, while the long list of standard tech and convenience features makes this cabin look even more impressive.
Besides great build quality and a high level of luxury, this SUV is also characterized by generous amounts of passenger and cargo room. All three rows of seats can accommodate adults, while the first two rows are particularly impressive in this aspect. The front sears are massive and supportive, while the driving position is high and ensures great visibility in all directions. When it comes to the cargo area, 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.
Of course, yearly updates usually bring novelties in this aspect. However, we have no doubt that most things are about to remain the same. Therefore, all models should come standard with goodies like a 12-inch touch screen, navigation, a 19-speaker McIntosh audio system, HD Radio, satellite radio, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa (including Fire TV), wireless device charging, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a tri-pane panoramic sunroof, quad-zone automatic climate control, remote start, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and a 10.25-inch display in the second-row console. The list of options should include things like an interactive front passenger display, a 23-speaker McIntosh audio system, and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system.
In terms of safety, all models should come standard with goodies like a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, parallel and perpendicular park assist, surround-view camera etc.
2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Engine
Things under the hood definitely won’t change. So, you may count on a good-old 6.4-liter V8 HEMI engine, which puts out around 471 horsepower. That’s more than enough to move this huge SUV with authority. Of course, four-wheel drive is standard, while the power is sent through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The system does a fantastic job. All in all, the overall driving experience is very satisfying.
However, not all things about this powertrain are great. The average fuel economy goes around 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway, which is very low, even by the standards of this segment. On the other hand, you may count on the class-leading max towing capacity, which goes around 9.850 pounds.
2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release Date and Price
The 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer should arrive sometime late in the year, with a starting price of around 88.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Escalade, Lexus LX etc.
