As the largest and flagship is the Jeep Grand Wagoneer is not exactly an affordable purchase. At $ 98,995 for the Grand Wagoneer Obsidian, the absolute best Jeep for this nameplate, those with one reserved should be better prepared with a lot of cash for their luxury SUV – even more so when they fill it with options with the with Sticker price up to $ 111,930.
But those buyers should consider gas money as the 2022 Grand Wagoneer isn’t a fuel-efficient machine. According to official EPA estimated numbers, the RWD version has an EPA-rated 13/19/15 mpg (city / highway / combined), while the 4WD Grand Wagoneer gets similar numbers at 13/18/15 mpg.
On the other hand, with a powerful 6.4-liter V8 producing 471 horsepower (351 kilowatts) and 455 pound-feet (617 newton meters) of torque, those numbers are not at all surprising. While these performance numbers are a mockery of its direct rivals, this is the one Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigatorthese two actually consume less based on numbers estimated by the EPA.
Notably, the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6-powered RWD Navigator is rated at 16/22/18 mpg while the 4WD version is listed at 16/20/17 mpg. The Escalade, on the other hand, comes in at 15/20/17 mpg for its RWD model, while the 4WD model is rated at 14/19/16 mpg – that’s coming from the 6.2-liter V8 grinder for an apple too – Apples comparison.
Even so, the Escalade and Navigator are obviously more economical than the Grand Wagoneer by numbers, albeit a bit.
But then again, it’s kind of ironic buying an expensive V8-powered SUV and worrying about fuel efficiency, isn’t it? We anticipate future owners of the Grand Wagoneer will have great lives taking care of the gas money, so the point is debatable.
