The 2023 Jeep Wagoneer is available in four trims: Base, Series II, Carbide, and Series III. Base trim is powered by the well-known 5.7-liter V8 with mild-hybrid assistance, which helps it deliver system outputs of 392 hp and 404 lb-ft of torque. Starting with the 2023 model year, all higher trim levels feature the new Hurricane twin-turbo inline-six engine in its lower specification, which produces 420 hp and 468 lb-ft. All trims use an eight-speed automatic transmission, sending the power to the rear wheels by default, with three AWD systems available as trim-dependent options. Base, Series II and Carbide variants can be ordered with an on-demand AWD system with a single-speed transfer case, while the Series III can be had with a two-speed transfer case. Opting for the Heavy-Duty Trailer-Tow Package adds the top-spec Quadra-Drive II AWD system with low-range transfer case. Adaptive air suspension is standard only on the Series III 4WD.
All trims come with an extensive driver-assistance suite, consisting of full-speed forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian/cyclist detection, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, automatic headlights, a rear-view camera, hill-start assist, and parking sensors front and rear. Standard on each trim are LED exterior lights, a hands-free power tailgate, keyless entry with push-button start, remote start, tri-zone climate control, leather seat upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated and ventilated front seats with 12-way power adjustment for the driver, and the new Uconnect 5C 10.1-inch infotainment system with all the latest connectivity features, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. A nine-speaker Alpine sound system is gratis, but the Series III has the option of upgrading to a 19-speaker system.
There are several packages available for the Wagoneer. The 4WD models can be equipped with the $1,495 Heavy-Duty Trailer-Tow package that adds a 3.92:1 rear axle, tow hooks, trailer-brake control, trailer-hitch zoom, trailer line-up assist, a two-speed transfer case, heavy-duty cooling, and other features.
The $3,495 Premium Group adds 20-inch alloy wheels to the base car (22-inchers to the Series II or Carbide), adjustable roof-rail crossbars, a cargo shade, and a tri-pane panoramic sunroof. The $3,695 Convenience Group includes auto high beams, drowsy driver detection, a head-up display, heated second-row seats, active lane management, automatic high beams, a parking assistant with auto stop, a 360-degree camera system, rain-sensing wipers, a wireless charging pad, and second-row manual window shades.
Any model can get the $2,195 Rear-Seat Entertainment Group. The latter has dual 10.1-inch displays and uses Amazon Fire TV. Finally, the automotive world has caught up.
For $1,195, you can also opt for the 2nd Row Seating Group to convert the second row to a set of heated captain's chairs, though this takes the seating capacity down to seven. This package includes a power-folding third row and is not available on the base Wagoneer.
The Carbide does not have access to the Premium Group.
For the most part, the Series III can be equipped with the same packages, though at a lower cost since it already comes with some additional features attached. Here, the Convenience Group retails for $2,395 and the second-row captain's chairs drop down to $795. The Premium Group costs a lot more, though. For $5,995, you get everything included in the Series II package, but Jeep adds the 19-speaker McIntosh MX950 audio system and power-deployable running boards.
