When the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer made its splashy debut back in March, the off-road brand talked about creating the most luxurious model it has ever done while also reviving an icon at the same time. But like the Sumatran Tiger or the Snow Leopard, the big three-row Jeep disappeared from the broader radar with our appetite being somewhat satiated by occasional sightings in the wild (especially here in Metro Detroit.) But Jeep wants you to keep the Wagoneer family fresh in your mind and has unveiled the full pricing ladder for the Wagoneer family head of its dealership rollout, be prepared to give your wallet a workout.
Wagoneer Diving Headfirst Into The Full-Size SUV Segment
The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are designed to appeal to luxury and large family buyers, and as a result, it should come as no surprise that they come with big price tags to match. According to Jeep’s online configurator, a base Wagoneer without the Grand badge trimmings starts at $69,995 for a Series II model with rear-wheel drive. If you prefer to add some elegance to your purchase, a base Series I Grand Wagoneer starts at $88,995. Going to the Grand lineup gets you standard all-wheel drive and introduces your bank account to the luxury SUV lifestyle with a Series III model starting at $105,995.
Of course, this is before you even begin to explore the massive options list for both models, which mirrors other SUV rivals like Land Rover and BMW regarding the equipment on hand and how high they can make the price go in a hurry. For example, two-tone paint finishes are a trendy color that most style-focused customers gravitate to. Jeep is firmly aware of this and has priced a few of them for $995. The massive 22-inch aluminum wheels that generated plenty of oos and ahhs at the unveiling? As you guessed, that’s another $995. The story doesn’t change in the cabin, with Grand Wagoneer models, in particular, bringing plenty of technology and optional extras into the space. A notable example is the dual 10.1-inch screens for the rear entertainment system. They’ll make your wallet $1,995 lighter, but your rear passengers will revel in the quality and how connected they are with various mobile apps and tech.
It Costs How Much?
Granted, all the options and various Mopar accessories can certainly make your head spin at times, but at the end of the day, how high can you push the Grand Wagoneer with every single goodie checked off the list? Noticeably, with a fully loaded Grand Wagoneer checking in at $111,930. That’s a rich sum but a sum that does put the Grand Wagoneer firmly in the running with the Land Rover Range Rover, Cadillac Escalade, and the Lincoln Navigator. And it appears that things can get even more expensive, with rumors suggesting that Jeep is considering an extended wheelbase version to help bring the fight to the Cadillac Escalade ESV and others.
No physical sightings of this particular variant (possibly using the same L designation as the smaller Grand Cherokee) have been noted (despite our best efforts). Still, if this big fish of a rumor does pan out, we could see this stretched model compete in the same ballpark as a similarly lengthened Range Rover with a price tag of over $140,000.
As for the present, Jeep is going above and beyond to make sure the buying experience for these big utilities matches some of the world’s best, with these buyers getting a few extra perks that other Jeep buyers won’t. They include a stronger focus on customer service, with only trained sales personnel being allowed to sell the duo with the help of tablets and other technology and broader perks to help make the ownership experience feel more exclusive and special.
