What are the differences between the 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer?

After a 30-year production hiatus, the Wagoneers are back! For 2022, Stellantis offers both flavors of their full-size, three-row luxury SUVs: the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Both are outstanding vehicles and some people may be surprised to find that they break just a bit from the rugged, off-road capability that vehicles are known for. Both Wagoneers are now upscale luxury SUVs that feature all the high-tech features, driver assists, and safety features offered in any automobile currently in production.

So, with the reintroduction of the two venerable marques, you might be wondering what the differences are? Well, you've come to the right place. We're here to help break down the key differences between the two new 2022 Wagoneers.

How do the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer differ externally?

Body Design - OK, not much difference here. Both the 2022 Wagoneer and 2022 Grand Wagoneer are similar in size. Both offer striking styling but the Grand Wagoneer has a somewhat more sophisticated grille design, chrome around the windows, copper- tinted windows, and more LED lighting.

Wheels - We all know that the wheels make a vehicle these days. Both Wagoneers come standard with 20-inch wheels but Wagoneer owners can opt for 18-inch off-road wheels or make a statement with 22-inchers. The Grand Wagoneer models, however, can be upgraded to seriously nice rubber with 22-inch aluminum wheels in four different finishes and a three-dimensional wheel cap with the Wagoneer logo suspended in deep acrylic.

How do the drivetrains differ between the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer?

Engines - Both offer V8s but in the 2022 Wagoneer has a 5.7-liter V-8 with the eTorque 48-volt mild-hybrid system. This combination of gas engine plus electric boost yields a powerful 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. Move up to the 2022 Grand Wagoneer and under the hood is a 6.4-liter V-8 pumping out 471 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque.

Suspension and 4x4 Systems - Both Wagoneers offer the finest suspension and 4x4 drive systems that Stellantis has to offer. This includes three 4x4 systems (Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II), the Quadra-Lift air suspension system, and the Selec-Terrain traction management system. The only difference is that that the Grand Wagoneer offers all the suspension and 4x4 goodies standard and some of the technology is optional on the Wagoneer.

How do the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer differ internally?

Materials - OK, there is a $30,000 price difference between the two Wagoneer models so you would think that the interiors would be a bit different - and they are. Inside, the leather in the Grand Wagoneer is a bit more luxurious, the trim is nicer, and there is a high-gloss piano black mid-bolster in the instrument panel. And then there is the wood. The Grand Wagoneer has beautiful American walnut on the dash, doors and center console. Advantage on this one: Grand Wagoneer.

Comfort and Seating - The 2022 Wagoneer features a three-zone climate control system and the Grand Wagoneers get a four-zone HVAC system with touchscreens in the first two rows for controlling the system.

And for seating, the Wagoneer has Nappa leather-trimmed, 12-way power seats, and the Grand Wagoneer one-ups it with luxurious Palermo leather on the top trims for its 24-way adjustable front seats.

LCD Displays - Big difference here: The engineers at Stellantis wanted to make a loud statement with LCD video displays in the Grand Wagoneer, and they did. While the Wagoneer has 2 displays, the instrument cluster and center touchscreen, the Grand Wagoneer has seven.  Among those are the driver's digital cluster, center infotainment screen, passenger screen, two rear screens for entertainment, and comfort control screens in the first two rows for climate and seat adjustment.

Audio Systems - Big difference here too.  The base stereo in the Wagoneer is an Alpine-branded system with nine speakers; make no mistake, this is a fine audio system. The Grand Wagoneer, however, introduces for the first time a premium McIntosh audio system in an automobile with 950 watts of power and count'em - 23 speakers.
