The Grand Wagoneer range consists of the Grand Wagoneer base model, followed by the Series II, Series II Obsidian, Series III, and Series III Obsidian. A 6.4-liter V8 with 471 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque serves as the base model's only available engine, but the standard engine for all higher-trim models is the new 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six with 510 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. The old V8 can however be ordered as a no-cost option for Obsidian models. Both engines send their power to a permanent 4WD system via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Standard specification is generous across the range. Even the base model features full exterior LED lights, a tri-pane sunroof, four-zone climate control, full Nappa leather upholstery, 24-way power-adjustable heated, ventilated and massaging front seats, heated second-row captain's chairs, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12-inch infotainment system with live navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and power reclining seats.
On the safety side, all models have adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic assist, active lane management, full-speed forward collision warning with active braking, and the ParkSense automated parking assist system.
From the Series II upward, Palermo leather upholstery is used, to which the Series III adds a quilted pattern, and 22-inch wheels are also standard from this trim up. A 10.25-inch interactive display for the front passenger, ventilated rear seats, and a 23-speaker McIntosh sound system are among the added features in higher-trim variants. The top-spec Series III adds high-tech goodies like night vision, and even more comfort features like a console cooler between the front seats.
The Grand Wagoneer is already well-equipped, but a quick review of the options list shows that there is some room for improvement still. A Convenience Group for the Series I consists of drowsy driver detection, night vision, a digital rearview mirror, and traffic sign recognition, all for $4,195. As mentioned earlier, Jeep will happily convert the Wagoneer back to an eight-seater at no extra cost. The $2,195 Rear Seat Entertainment Package includes dual 10.1-inch screens, wireless earphones, and Amazon Fire TV for Auto.
If you intend to tow with the Grand Wagoneer, the Heavy-Duty Trailer-Tow Package is a must. For $1,295 on the Series I, Jeep adds chrome tow hooks, heavy-duty engine cooling, a built-in vehicle safe, removable tow hook, trailer brake control, trailer-hitch line-up assist, and trailer-hitch zoom.
The Convenience Package for the Series II costs $3,795 and includes an advanced security alert system, a rear seat monitoring camera, intersection collision assist, and night vision. You can also buy it with the Series II Premium Group, which consists of the 23-speaker McIntosh sound system, adjustable roof-rail crossbars, a foldable cargo shade, a front console cooler, premium color tinted glass, and ventilated rear seats.
You can only order the Series II's Convenience Package on the Obsidian model at the same price. The Heavy-Duty Trailer-Tow Package is slightly cheaper on the Series II, Obsidian and Series III, retailing for $995. You can add rear-seat entertainment, the towing package and replace the second-row captain's chairs with a three-seat bench on the Series III.
