The Grand Wagoneer range consists of the Series I, Series II, Obsidian, and Series III. A 6.4-liter V8 is standard across the range and produces 471 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. The power is sent to a permanent 4WD system via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Standard specification is generous across the range. All models get full exterior LED lights, a tri-pane sunroof, four-zone climate control, full leather upholstery, 24-way power-adjustable heated, ventilated and massaging front seats, heated second-row captains 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.
Higher trim models boast Palermo leather upholstery, a 10.25-inch interactive display for the front passenger, ventilated rear seats, and a 23-speaker McIntosh sound system. The top-spec Series III gets 22-inch alloys, night vision, and a cooler between the front seats.
The Grand Wagoneer has a base price of $87,845 for the Series I, while the Series II starts at $94,845. An Obsidian, which is based on the Series II, has an MSRP of $99,845. A Series III comes with a base price of $104,845. Yup, it's a six-digit Jeep. These prices exclude the $2,000 destination charge.
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 drivier detection, night vision, a digital rearview mirror, and traffic sign recognition, all for $3,995. As mentioned earlier, Jeep will happily convert the Wagoneer back to an eight-seater at no extra cost. The $1,995 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 $3,595 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.
The price of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer leaps up once you start considering the Series II over the Series I, and we're not sure there is enough extra value to warrant it. The additional driver-assistance features are excellent, as is the 23-speaker McIntosh sound system, but the 19-speaker system is exemplary, and the base-level safety systems are already excellent. Jeep has all the basics covered and then some. Are night vision, Palermo leather, and a display for the passenger necessary? We don't know about you, but we'd be pretty bummed if the front passenger spent every second of a long-distance trip watching Squid Game.
We would add the rear-seat entertainment system to keep the kids happy and go for one of the more elegant color options. Baltic-Gray seems to work well. There's no need to go up to 22-inch wheels because a 20-inch alloy with a larger profile tire is spot-on for a luxury SUV like the Grand Wagoneer. That's all we'd do to a Series I. This particular build retails for $92,435, which is still less than a Series II.
