resurrecting a beloved suv brand to compete in the current large luxury suv market requires more than adding some aluminum trim to the interior, shoving a touchscreen into the dash, and calling it a day. jeep is not only aware of this, in its goal to compete with the likes of the cadillac escalade, lincoln navigator, and land rover range rover, it's outfitted the 2022 jeep wagoneer and its high-end sibling, the 2022 grand wagoneer, with the latest technology and more screens than a supervillain's lair.
at the core of the 2022 wagoneer and 2022 grand wagoneer tech experiences are screens. in addition to the digital dash cluster (10.3 inches for wagoneer, 12.3 inches for grand wagoneer), there’s the requisite infotainment touchscreen that’s 10.1 inches on the wagoneer and 12.0 inches on the grand wagoneer, housing the latest version of uconnect 5. it supports android auto and apple carplay. then the screens start multiplying, especially in the more expensive grand wagoneer. standard on the grand wagoneer is an articulating 10.3-inch comfort display that sits below the main infotainment screen. it houses climate and seat controls and is similar to what we’ve seen on the 2021 audi q8.
jeep continues the display extravaganza with an optional 10.3-inch passenger touchscreen that resides in the dash directly in front of the passenger seat; it's available on both vehicles. with it, those riding shotgun can control navigation and media, monitor external cameras, watch video, and mirror from mobile devices. more impressive is that the wagoneer and grand wagoneer will be the first vehicles outfitted with amazon's fire tv for auto with alexa, which jeep says gives passengers access to amazon's library of thousands of movies, tv shows, and apps.
for second-row passengers, there is a pair of optional 10.1-inch screens that, like the passenger screen up front, support amazon fire tv for auto. the video on those rear displays can be controlled by the front passenger display so that a parent can keep track of what children are watching in back. on the grand cherokee, an additional 10.3-inch comfort display sits between the two second-row seats giving rear passengers control over heating and air conditioning settings.
jeep says that the potential combined area of all the screens available on the grand wagoneer is 75 inches. considering how often we stare at screens outside of vehicles, jeep is definitely on to something with its "give everyone a screen" strategy.
as for the rest of the interior, the two vehicles exude a sort of classic americana interior design with wood, aluminum trim, and leather throughout coupled with glowing rectangles. both wagoneers come standard with leather-trimmed seats. for those feeling extra fancy, palermo leather-trimmed seats with accent stitching are available for the grand wagoneer.
the wagoneer comes with 12-way adjustable front seats while the grand wagoneer doubles that control with 24-way power seats. both have memory settings and lumbar support. the more luxury-oriented grand wagoneer also includes massage settings.
for those with large families or more than two friends, both vehicles are outfitted with a third row as standard. jeep says that there’s available seating for up to eight in both vehicles. but for those hoping to add some additional comfort for rear passengers, second-row captain's chairs are optional on the wagoneer and standard on the grand wagoneer.
anyone needing to haul groceries or gear should have enough room for most errands. cargo space behind the third row is 27.4 cubic feet for both vehicles. space behind the second row is 70.8 cubic feet for the wagoneer and 70.9 for the grand wagoneer. for trips to hardware and warehouse stores, total cargo space behind the first row is 116.7 cubic feet and 94.2 cubic feet for the wagoneer and grand wagoneer respectively. the wagoneer bests the 104.6 cubic feet available in the 2021 ford expedition, while the grand wagoneer has a bit more space than 90.4 cubic feet from the 2021 bmw x7.
overall the wagoneer and grand wagoneer enter their market segments with interiors that are equal parts luxury and technology. for fans of screens, the grand wagoneer has you covered.
