Being the largest and the flagship, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer isn’t exactly an affordable buy. At $ 98,995 for the Grand Wagoneer Obsidian, the absolute best jeep to offer for that nameplate, those who have booked one should better be ready with plenty of cash to pay for their luxurious SUV – especially if they do. filled with options, with sticker prices reaching up to $ 111,930.
But those buyers should factor in the fuel money, because the 2022 Grand Wagoneer is not a thrifty machine. According to official figures estimated by the EPA, the RWD version has a 13/19/15 mpg (city / highway / combined) rated by the EPA, while the 4WD Grand Wagoneer gets similar figures at 13/18/15 mpg.
Then again, with a powerful 6.4-liter V8 that develops 471 horsepower (351 kilowatts) and 455 pound-feet (617 Newton-meters) of torque, these numbers are not at all surprising. While those power output numbers are a mockery of its direct rivals, the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator, these two actually consume less based on EPA estimated numbers.
It should be noted that the RWD Navigator with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine is rated at 16/22/18 mpg, while the 4WD version is listed at 16/20/17 mpg. The Escalade, on the other hand, is at 15/20/17 mpg for its RWD model while the 4WD model is rated at 14/19/16 mpg – this comes from the 6.2-liter V8 mill for an apple – with-apples Comparison.
That said, the Escalade and Navigator are obviously more fuel efficient than the Grand Wagoneer by the numbers, albeit slightly.
But then again, buying an expensive V8-powered SUV and worrying about fuel efficiency is a bit ironic, isn’t it? We think the future owners of the Grand Wagoneer live majestically to worry about fuel money, so the point is moot.
