The 2024 Grand Wagoneer is a more luxurious rendition of the Jeep Wagoneer with three-row seating for up to eight, intricate wood trim, and larger displays.
Grand Wagoneer drops its venerable 6.4-liter V8 for the 2024 model year. Instead, all Grand Wagoneers receive a more potent version of the Wagoneer’s twin-turbo Hurricane inline-six engine.
The Jeep Grand Wagoneer Series II bids goodbye for 2024. In its place is the Grand Wagoneer Obsidian.
2024 Jeep Grand Wagoneer: What’s New?
All Grand Wagoneers will flock to dealerships with a lighter yet more potent twin-turbocharged inline-six engine to replace the 6.4-liter V8. It has 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft. of torque, and it’s the same “Hurricane” engine that debuted in the 2023 Grand Wagoneer L.
Moreover, Jeep removed the midgrade Grand Wagoneer Series II and replaced it with the Obsidian. In a strange twist, Jeep also offers an Obsidian package for the range-topping Grand Wagoneer Series III grade.
Every 2024 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has a full-size spare tire, rain-sensing wipers, power running boards, cargo area LED lighting, power-folding mirrors, and an American flag badge.
Quadra-Drive II 4×4 Drivetrain
The Grand Wagoneer’s twin-turbo inline-six connects to an eight-speed automatic transmission that turns all four wheels using the brand’s top-spec Quadra-Drive II 4×4 drivetrain.
Quadra-Drive II features a rear electronic limited-slip differential, a two-speed transfer case, low-range gearing (2.72:1), hill descent control, and a crawl ratio of 48:1 to provide the big Jeep with some off-roading credentials.
Furthermore, the Grand Wagoneer has Select-Terrain driving modes that adjust the shift patterns, engine responsiveness, and torque distribution to conquer rocky hills, snow, muddy trails, and other challenging terrain. Jeep’s optional two-speed transfer case automatically shifts between two low-end power options, providing more torque when needed.
Towing & Cargo Capacity
The 2024 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is just as capable in the hauling department as the standard Wagoneer. When properly equipped, the 2024 Grand Wagoneer will tow up to 9,850 lbs. Jeep lists the GCWR at 12,300 lbs. for the 2024 Grand Wagoneer.
Meanwhile, the Grand Wagoneer offers 27.4 cubic feet of storage room behind the third row, which expands to 72.9 and an impressive 96.9 cubic feet with the third and second-row chairs folded.
The 2024 Jeep Grand Wagoneer equipped with the twin-turbo inline-six is slightly more fuel-efficient than the outgoing 6.4-liter V8. Whereas the V8 achieved an EPA-rated 15 combined mpg, the turbo Hurricane in-line six improves to 17 combined. The Hurricane engine returns 14 in the city and 20 on the highway.
