2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Revealed As All-New Lincoln Navigator Rival

We first saw the Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept last fall, but today, Stellantis (formerly known as Fiat Chrysler) has officially revealed the production-ready 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, along with its less-luxurious brother, the Wagoneer. Both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer share a lot in common, but while the Wagoneer will compete directly with the Ford Expedition, the Grand Wagoneer will do battle with the Lincoln Navigator.

Both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer ride on a body-on-frame structure similar to the one used on the Ram 1500, just like the Expedition and its Ford T3 platform, which is also used in the Ford F-150. Unlike the Ram, however, the Wagoneer family utilizes an independent rear suspension. The Grand Wagoneer is distinguishable from its lesser twin by its unique front fascia, black roof, additional chrome trim, and more in the way of equipment and luxury appointments.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is quite a bit more expensive than the 2021 Lincoln Navigator, with a base MSRP of $88,995 – nearly $11k more than the Navigator, which starts out at $78,125. If that isn’t enough, Jeep says that the Grand Wagoneer, when optioned to the max, will crest the $111k mark.

That large amount of money will net buyers quite a few nice features, however, including available Palermo quilted leather, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and two infotainment screens – a 12.0-inch unit up top with an additional 10.3-inch touchscreen below that for climate controls, plus another screen for the second row. And if that isn’t enough screens, the Grand Wagoneer can be optioned with a 10.3-inch passenger display and 10.1-inch screens for the second-row seatbacks.

In terms of drivetrains, the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer comes equipped with a 6.4L V8 that produces 471 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. For comparison’s sake, the Navigator’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 is rated to produce 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, routed through a 10-speed gearbox.

Regardless, the Grand Wagoneer does offer a 9,860-pound max tow rating, which trumps the Navigator’s 8,700-pounds. It also offers more passenger space in all three rows, as well as more cargo space. However, it’s worth noting that a refreshed Navigator is on the way for 2022 with revised front and rear styling, Ford’s 3.5L PowerBoost V6 hybrid, and a refreshed interior with a large infotainment screen .

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer launch this summer, and customers can reserve one now with a $500 deposit. An even fancier Grand Wagoneer Obsidian Edition, with blacked-out trim, will also launch this summer with a base price of $100,995.

    Not even close.

      I agree I was falling out of my chair laughing about it “competing” with the navigator. I can say its definitely overpriced for a jeep and why does it take a 6.4L V8 to get 471hp. My slightly modified 3.0l v6 does about 500 hp. Also its styling could use some improvements. Now saying that its not ugly but its not pretty either.

      1. Crabbymilton

        Well not everyone wants a turbocharged V6 that revs so high to produce the same power as a good old standard V8. Just for the record, why do you need over 400hp anyway regardless of engine in a family SUV?

  2. Jack

    It’s too overpriced and not that good of a value and the engine is like a dinosaur. Lincoln is probably just going to come out with a grand touring version of the Navigator and it’s probably going to get around 550 HP and going to make it look like a joke which it already is because they’re only getting that much out of a 6.7L V8 engine when Lincoln’s getting 450 out of a 3.5L V6. Kinda disappointing but I do like the Grand Wagoneer I which seems more reasonably priced minus the elephant in the room (the engine)

  3. John

    Just wait 3 years and you’ll be able to pick up a used one around $30 grand

  4. Keith

    I would consider it an Expedition or Suburban rival
    It just doesn’t have the chops to go up against the Navigator or Escalade

  5. Mike says..

    Mike says…. I have to disagree. The Grand Grand Wagoneer is a solid shot across the bow of Lincoln and Ford. Like the Wrangler/Bronco war, brand loyalty will be severely tested with newbies entering the fray over who is bigger/best? I love the Expedition/Navigator, but it is on a lonely mission where it will win big or lose similarly. My money is on Ford/Lincoln and its customer service standards which have left Stelantis products in the dust. Cadillac is a very expensive joke. just sayin…..
