All-New Jeep Models: Grand Cherokee L vs Grand Wagoneer

All-New Jeep Models: Grand Cherokee L vs Grand Wagoneer

After several years of focusing their SUV efforts on the two-row format, Jeep has suddenly announced a new range of three-row models. If you're looking to upgrade to a bigger SUV while still retaining full off-road capability, which one of the new releases is right for you? Read our Grand Cherokee L vs Wagoneer review to find out.

 

High-End Performance

High-End Performance

 

Both the Grand Cherokee L and the Grand Wagoneer are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, coupled to either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. However, the range of engine options differ considerably.

 

The Grand Cherokee L starts out with a 3.6L V6 Pentastar gas engine producing a healthy 290 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque. While this is ample power for most circumstances, there's also the option of a 5.7L V8 which increases the output to 357 hp and 390lb-ft.

 

The Grand Wagoneer starts at a higher level then the Grand Cherokee L, with the base model offering a 5.7L HEMI V8 making 392 horsepower and 404lb-ft. But if you're looking for sheer power in the three-row SUV, the high-end Grand Wagoneer provides it with a 6.4L V8 cranking out 471 horsepower and 455lb-ft of torque, enough to handle almost any situation with ease.

 

Cabin and Cargo

Cabin and Cargo

 

The Grand Wagoneer's large body-on-frame construction provides space for eight passengers in genuine comfort, along with a generous cargo capacity of up to 3,305L. And while the Grand Cherokee L is still a full-size SUV, its unibody design is a little more compact, seating seven and offering up to 2,396L of cargo space.

 

Infotainment Technology

 

The Grand Cherokee L is a great example of Jeep's approach to infotainment, offering a 10.25" digital gauge cluster backed by an touchscreen of either 8.4" or 10.1" depending on the trim. All the advanced features you'd expect are present, with smartphone integration handled by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and optional navigation boasting traffic and weather updates on the fly.

 

However, the Grand Wagoneer offers a wealth of infotainment features that you won't find on any other vehicle in its market. The 12.3" digital gauge cluster sets the tone, and is paired with a 12.3" touchscreen for general infotainment and an extra 10.3" touchscreen for the HVAC system. Optional upgrades add an extra 10.3" touchscreen for front passenger, the same for the second row, and yet another pair of 10.1" screens in the rear. If infotainment is an important feature for you, it's hard to think of any possible improvement to the Grand Wagoneer.

 

Grand Cherokee L vs Wagoneer Review: The Verdict

Grand Cherokee L vs Wagoneer Review The Verdict

 

From the exterior, the two SUVs share a strong family resemblance but they're very different vehicles under the surface. The Grand Wagoneer's engines are much more powerful than in the Grand Cherokee L, and the range of technology in the cabin is unsurpassed on any mainstream SUV. However, the Grand Cherokee L is a sprightly performer, and offers more agile handling for tackling off-road adventures. Which is the right three-row SUV for you? Book a test drive of both models from Milton Chrysler and review their exceptional qualities for yourself.
