Jeep is one of those brands that has been iconic from the beginning, and all of their loyal followers have a dialed-in love of a vehicle that can jump off-road and stay there for days, while being the star of any deep-forest fishing and camping expedition. The writers on duty at Motor Trend went so far last week as to say that Jeep can be credited for creating the SUV segment, and we're excited about the placement of a 6.4-liter V8 now under its hood.
We have had keen eyes on the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer's return here at Landmark Dodge of Atlanta for quite some time, and are eager to see just how its 471 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque will translate to “a seriously good time” in light of cookouts, rock climbing, and impromptu getaways with the mountain bikes in tow and ready to go. This trail and canyon-ready SUV can tow 10,000 pounds, and accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 6 seconds.
Track-ready and off-road versions of the Grand Wagoneer will soon be likely to follow, and a plug-in gasoline-electric hybrid will also make an appearance on the market soon to aid in protecting all those forests that it is such a good vehicle choice to explore. This notable and characteristic vehicle was first introduced in 1962 and was resurrected in 1984 before seeing discontinuation in 1991. Now its third arrival for 2022, Much of its focus is on offering a well-versed sense of luxury for a brand line that has become so well-known for navigating the raging rivers and outback-grade country of terrain that recreation-seekers adore.
Modern, sophisticated, and brandishing it's own unique “EST. 1963” badge on the outer edge of the instrument panel, its black roof, copper badging finish, and copper-colored tinted glass keep it in the spirit of the Wagoneers from the past. To make the most of available space, the new SUV features an aluminum rotary shifter wrapped in leather and the buttons that adjust the air suspension's ride height. If you feel that you are bringing along enough valuables for the trip that some need to be out of prying eyes' sight, the available touchpad-controlled safe under split front armrest makes for a well-hidden haven.
While you are traveling in comfort, digital media and distractions are one of the modern conveniences that can help pass the time in a bit more diverse of a fashion than board games and books, even though we still love both! There are up to four screens up front, and three in the second row. One first for the automotive industry and Jeep as well is the integration of Amazon Fire TV For Auto in the Grand Wagoneer, which allows users to begin a movie from the smart device at home and ports it directly to the vehicle. The Grand Wagoneer's Quadra-Lift air suspension system adds up to .20 inches of ground clearance to the standard 8.0-inch ride height, allowing for graduation from fire-road runs to a bit trickier and weathered trail rating!
