Grand Wagoneer Returns
As automakers and American drivers go all-in on SUVs, consumer tastes extend beyond mainstream vehicles to luxury models. Building on a legacy as one of the original premium SUVs, Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer return for 2022, expanding the current Jeep lineup into the large premium SUV segment. One of the first sport-utility vehicles when it debuted in 1962 as a 1963 model, the Jeep Wagoneer was the first 4-wheel-drive vehicle with an automatic transmission and independent front suspension. Twenty years later in the 1980s, the Grand Wagoneer became Jeep’s first premium SUV. Now 30 years since Grand Wagoneer’s previous availability, the 2022 Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer return as modern reimagined versions of the originals.
