5 Major Differences between the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer


The Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer are two of the most popular models in the Jeep lineup. They are sophisticated, family friendly vehicles that offer a comfortable ride with plenty of amenities. They are also sporty and stylish enough to appeal to single professionals who just want to make an impact.

Buyers looking at these vehicles may have a hard time deciding between the two since they both have so much to offer. Here's a look at five major differences between the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer to help you decide which might be right for you: 


The overall profile of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are similar, but the details are dramatically different. While the specifics depend on what model year you are looking at, what you'll see year after year is that the Grand Wagoneer is a bit more sophisticated and luxurious than the Wagoneer. It has finer detailing throughout its body, most notably in the understated and refined grille and front end. Imagine that someone took the Wagoneer as the starting point and made refinements throughout that made it look like a more elegant vehicle and you've got the Grand Wagoneer.


As its name suggests, the Grand Wagoneer tends to offer a bit more than the Wagoneer in most respects, including the powertrain. The engine is usually larger and more powerful on the Grand Wagoneer. For example, the 2022 Grand Wagoneer came with a 6.4-liter V8 engine that put out 471 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque, while the 2022 Wagoneer came with a 5.7-liter V8 engine that put out 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. The details vary by year, but you can expect to always see these kinds of differences between the models. 


The powertrain isn't the only element that influences performance on these two Jeep models. The Grand Wagoneer often comes with other elements that enhance performance over what you'll get on the Wagoneer, such as standard all-wheel drive, an enhanced suspension system, and larger wheels. 


Depending on the model year and how it's configured, both the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer can seat seven or eight passengers. The major difference with the Grand Wagoneer is that you're going to get a much more comfortable ride, with slightly more room, more upscale upholstery materials, greater points of seating adjustment, and heated seating.

Interior Features

As in other categories, the Grand Wagoneer outshines the Wagoneer when it comes to interior features. It has a larger infotainment screen, a better sound system (as many as 19 speakers), additional points of climate control, a standard sunroof, and much more.
