The Jeep Grand Wagoneer nameplate places it at the heart of the full-size American luxury market to take on the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator.
Jeep Grand Wagoneer is Based on a Truck
The Jeep Grand Wagoneer has six-lug wheels and it is based on a truck. In fact, it is based on the Ram 1500. Unlike the Escalade, it does hide it well. Then the Grand Wagoneer in the center console isn’t as wide as you will find in the truck. Nor are the C-pillars which aren’t as intrusive as those of Escalade. Then, the hoodline does drop off like a Grand Cherokee L. It does improve outward visibility. Moreover, it has a low-set dashboard which is combining with a high seating position. It does provide a commanding view of the road. The Grand Wagoneer does best with the Escalade. In fact, it does ride more like an overgrown Grand Cherokee L.
Grand Wagoneer Accessories
The Grand Wagoneer Series 4X4 has a sticker price of $90,885. It does feature a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. It includes a 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 10.3-inch touchscreen for the climate controls and a 10.1-inch touchscreen for the rear-seat climate controls. In fact, the front climate screen puts form over function. Every one of its functions can be controlling by the main screen above it. The lower screen is a motorized screen. Then it can be flipping up to reveal a compartment. It does house a 12-volt plug, USB-A, and USB-C ports. It also has a wireless phone charger.
In fact, the Grand Wagoneer has to be started or put into an accessory mode to open the motorized screen to uncage the smartphone. Hiding all these features makes for a clean look. Yet it isn’t very functional. Also, the rear-seat 10.1-inch touchscreen is mounted at a fixed angle. It is off the rear center console which can’t be hidden. Moreover, it will absolutely draw the attention of your young kids. It can also get in the way when sliding in longer objects.
