2024 Wagoneer & Grand Wagoneer Overview

Almost 30 years after being discontinued, the Wagoneer nameplate reemerged in 2022 on a new platform based on the Ram 1500. In its resurrected form, it was a tremendous full-size luxury SUV with three roomy rows, deluxe materials, and available off-road capability to do justice to its place in the Jeep pantheon.

Now, in the third year of production, the fourth-generation Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer continue to impress as upscale Jeep SUVs. Let’s examine the features and options available in 2024 and how the two sibling models measure against each other.

Overview of the 2024 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer

Whether you choose a Wagoneer or a Grand Wagoneer, you can be sure that you’re getting a well-equipped and highly capable luxury SUV. Both are full-size, three-row models with the versatility to function as an everyday driver and an off-roader. Their external dimensions are identical, measuring roughly 215 inches long and 80 inches tall with a 123-inch wheelbase. If you opt for the L series, you get an additional 12 inches of length and 7 inches to the wheelbase. Each model is available in four trims that appeal to a variety of preferences and budgets.

The primary difference between the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer is the level of luxury that each provides. As you might suppose from the name, the Grand Wagoneer is the premium model. Its standard and available features are more numerous and upscale than the Wagoneer’s, down to the quality of the materials used in its interior. It’s also the more powerful Jeep SUV, as you’ll see in the following section.

2024 Wagoneer & Grand Wagoneer Performance

While the outgoing model year offered a V-8 powertrain for both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, the 2024 model year drops it in favor of a 3.0-liter inline-six for all trim levels. However, the Grand Wagoneer has a high-output version of this engine, allowing it to generate 510 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, which is considerably more than the Wagoneer’s already impressive 420 hp and 486 lb-ft. 

In terms of real-world use, the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer are terrific performers. Jeep’s posted zero-to-60 times are 6.3 and 5.9 seconds, respectively, so you shouldn’t encounter any troubles with highway merging. Both models have excellent towing capacities, but the Wagoneer has a slight edge: 10,000 pounds versus the Grand Wagoneer’s 9,800 pounds. Still, whichever model you choose, you’ll be able to tow almost anything you need.

Another key performance difference is the drivetrain. For the Wagoneer, all trim levels except the range-topping Series III come standard with rear-wheel drive, with the option to upgrade to four-wheel drive. The Grand Wagoneer, in contrast, is exclusively four-wheel drive. 

Interior Features: 2024 Wagoneer & Grand Wagoneer

The 2024 Wagoneer’s three-row interior provides seating for up to eight people in its standard arrangement. Second-row captain’s chairs, which shrink the seating capacity to seven, are optional. Luxurious touches permeate the cabin, including leather upholstery, 12-way power front seats, third-row power-folding/reclining seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a 10.1-inch infotainment display. The cabin is spacious, too. The legroom measures 40.9 and 42.7 inches in the front and second rows, respectively, and even the third row’s 36.6 inches can accommodate adult passengers. Cargo volume is no less generous, ranging from 27.4 to 116.7 cubic feet.

The 2024 Grand Wagoneer has the same seating capacity, except the second-row captain’s chairs come standard and bench seating is optional. The legroom is equally accommodating, as is the default cargo area, but cargo volume maxes out at 94.2 cubic feet. You can expect the same luxurious touches as the regular Wagoneer but with the addition of premium features such as a 12.3-inch driver information digital cluster, a 12-inch infotainment touch screen, and heated/ventilated nappa leather-trimmed front-row seats with 24-way power adjustment and massage functionality. Depending on your choice of trim and options, you may also get features such as: 

  • 10.25-inch front passenger interactive display.
  • Ventilated second-row seats.
  • Front console cooler bin.
  • Head-up display.
  • Ambient interior lighting.
  • Rear-seat monitoring system. 
  • McIntosh MX1375 Reference Entertainment System with 23 speakers.

Keep in mind that the L-series version of each model will provide much more cargo volume. 

2024 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Fuel Economy

The 2024 Wagoneer is the more fuel-efficient model. With the rear-wheel drivetrain, you get an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, for a combined rating of 20 mpg. If you opt for the range-topping Series III or upgrade another trim to a four-wheel drivetrain, the mileage drops to 16, 23, and 19 mpg, respectively. 

The 2024 Grand Wagoneer, being available exclusively with a four-wheel drivetrain, has identical mileage ratings across the board: 14 mpg in the city, 20 mpg on the highway, and 17 mpg combined. As you might expect, the lower fuel efficiency is due to the Grand Wagoneer’s more powerful engine.  The L-series version of each drivetrain for either model nets the same mileage.

How Much Do the 2024 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Cost?

Though both are luxury SUVs, the regular 2024 Wagoneer starts at a much lower price point than the Grand Wagoneer. The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRPs) for the 2024 Wagoneer are:

  • Base: $62,945 for rear-wheel drive and $65,945 for four-wheel drive.
  • Series II: $69,640 for rear-wheel drive and $72,640 for four-wheel drive.
