Jeep’s Wagoneer line is obtaining energy for 2023 with brand-new, lengthy( emergency room)- wheelbase “L” variations that will certainly provide Jeep the devices required to actually contest versus the full-size SUV section, plus a set of brand-new engines that will certainly change the Wagoneer’s aging set of Hemi V8s. We gave a rather detailed dimension as well as powertrain contrast of the Wagoneer versus various other full-size SUVs when the short-wheelbase version introduced in 2021 as well as it appears like we’ll need to do an additional, as the L tosses both of those groups entirely on their ears.
The Wagoneer L’s 130- inch wheelbase (a 7-inch rise over the common Wagoneers) will in fact wind up being the fastest in the full-size deluxe SUV group, however not by a lot. Lincoln’s Navigator L (oops) sign in at 131.6 inches as well as the Cadillac Escalade ESV as well as GMC Yukon XL brag 134 inches in between axles. The Wagoneer L’s overall size expanded by a foot on the whole.
The powertrain circumstance is also spicier. The Wagoneer L will certainly come common with Stellantis’ brand-new Storm twin-turbo inline-6 engine that generates 420 horse power as well as 468 lb.-ft. of torque. The Grand Wagoneer L will certainly gain from the high-output variation, which Jeep is describing as the “Storm Double Turbo 510.” The “510” represents its power outcome; torque sign in at 500 lb-ft.
We called that a “Hemi substitute” when it was introduced as well as the Wagoneer L is our initial preference of specifically that. The common Wagoneer is powered by a 5.7-liter Hemi with the eTorque moderate crossbreed system helpful for 392 hp as well as 404 lb-ft. That was one of the most effective common engine amongst full-size American deluxe SUVs as well as the Storm will certainly cover it. The Grand Wagoneer’s 6.4-liter V8 makes 471 horse power as well as 455 lb-ft of torque; the 510 variation of the Storm has that smoothly defeat as well, as well as currently supplies segment-leading torque.
That’s all excellent, however if that power as well as intricacy come without weight financial savings, has Jeep actually relocated the sphere down the area whatsoever? The Storm is meant to be around 150-200 extra pounds lighter than its equal Hemis. Up until Jeep supplies the common Wagoneer with both of its brand-new Storm engines, it’ll be difficult to make an apples-to-apples contrast, however we delight in to see that the base visual weight of a Wagoneer L 2WD is just around 100 extra pounds even more than that of the common Wagoneer. The Grand Wagoneer L, nevertheless, shows up to have actually obtained near 300 extra pounds over the standard-wheelbase matching.
Establishing weight apart, Jeep can a minimum of claim that these a lot more effective inline-sixes are a little a lot more gas reliable in the Wagoneer L variations than the Hemi V8s remain in either of the smaller sized vehicles. The 2WD Wagoneer L has actually been ranked at 17 mpg city, 23 mpg freeway as well as 19 mpg incorporated; 4WD goes down that to 16/22/19 The common 2WD Wagoneer sign in at 16/22/18; 4WD at 15/22/17 The Grand Wagoneer L with its 510- horse power engine (4WD just, keep in mind) is ranked at 14 mpg city, 19 mpg freeway as well as 16 mpg incorporated; the non-L with the 6.4-liter Hemi as well as 4WD was ranked at 13/18/15
Inside, the 2nd as well as initial rows are basically the same to the common Wagoneer as well as Grand Wagoneer. Also the third-row guest measurements continue to be the very same; where the L actually beams is freight space. The Wagoneer L deals 44.2 cubic feet of freight quantity behind the 3rd row (up from 27.4)– defeating the Escalade ESV as well as Yukon XL. Go down the 3rd row which increases to 88.2 cubic feet. Go down the center row as well as you have sufficient room to lay a 4×8 sheet of plywood level (1309 cubic feet). All L designs include 6 tie-down loopholes in the freight location as well as Grand Wagoneer L designs come common with a rail system for freight monitoring.
Every little thing else concerning the Wagoneer L as well as Grand Wagoneer L will basically mirror the existing “brief” wheelbase matchings, with 2WD offered on the Wagoneer L as well as 4WD requirement on the Grand. Prices has actually not yet been introduced; remain tuned for that a little closer to go-time.
