That didn't take long at all.
First revealed in March, the Jeep Wagoneer is a welcome return of the Wagoneer nameplate. It's also an imposing, luxurious SUV that should provide the latest Cadillac Escalade with a stern test, especially the Grand Wagoneer. The SUV made a public appearance at the Chicago Auto Show in July. Considering it has just arrived, it comes as a surprise that Jeep has already increased the price of the new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. That's according to a new order guide obtained by CarsDirect. It reflects a price increase of $850.
Including the destination charge of $2,000, the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer Series II originally had a starting price of $69,995, but the latest order guide reflects a figure of $70,845. A more affordable Series I trim is on the way later. As for the Grand Wagoneer, it starts from $89,845 compared to $88,995 previously. The priciest trim will cost you nearly $107,000 before any options are added. Interestingly, these price increases aren't yet reflected on the official Jeep website but the new order guide means that this change is likely to be made imminently, so buyers looking to save some money may be wise to place their orders for the new Wagoneer now.
As we've seen before, the Grand Wagoneer will cost well over $110,000 when fully loaded with options like premium paint, machined 22-inch wheels, a rear-seat entertainment package, and heavy-duty trailering equipment. With the Wagoneer's sky-high prices, the new Grand Cherokee L looks like a better deal than ever before as it starts at under $40,000. Even the range-topping Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve is cheaper than the base Wagoneer. The Grand Cherokee L has styling that instantly links it to the Wagoneer and a beautifully trimmed cabin. If you want a luxurious Jeep SUV and can't stretch to the Wagoneer, the Grand Cherokee L is a brilliant answer.
