2023 Jeep Wagoneer L & Grand Wagoneer L
Jeep is living large with two new L’s for 2023; the Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L. We flew out to Montana for a First Drive rodeo with both.
Now when we say “large,” we really mean it: both models stretch out to nearly 19-feet, a foot more than the regular Wagoneers. Over half of that growth is the longer wheelbase: 130-inches, an increase of 7. The last 5-inches are in back, creating a total 42.1 cubic-feet of cargo space behind the third row, up from the reg’s 27.4 cubic-feet.
So, it’s no doubt big, but both felt great to drive thanks to the L’s new and standard Hurricane 3.0-liter Twin-Turbo inline-six cylinder engine. In the Wagoneer L’s is the “standard output” version, rated at 420 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque in either two- or four-wheel drive. The Grand Wagoneer L sports a high-output unit, cranked up to 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft; Four-wheel drive is standard here. Bothare loaded with standard amenities, but the Grand gets a leg-up with a larger 12-inch infotainment screen and Nappa leather massage seats.
The L is available in three of the Wagoneer’s four trims, starting around 60-thousand dollars and running up to the mid 70’s. The L can be had on all five Grand Wagoneer trims, starting in the low 90’s and topping out under 115-thousand dollars. Still, either “L” will bring home a “W.” It’s up to you to decide which best fits your lifestyle.
And we’ll have much more Quick Spins… soon!
