2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, 2022 Jeep Wagoneer

2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Series III

Consumer Guide Automotive The 1963 Jeep Wagoneer arguably defined the modern SUV. Truly a trendsetter, the original Wagoneer introduced key SUV features that remain nearly universal today: a four-door wagon body style, the pairing of an automatic transmission with four-wheel-drive, and a car-like ride, to name a few. Three years later, the 1966 Super Wagoneer advanced the concept further as the first luxurious utility wagon. This basic idea was refined in the 1978 Wagoneer Limited, which itself evolved into the prestigious 1984-1991 Grand Wagoneer. A modern interpretation of Jeep’s iconic Grand Wagoneer has been anticipated for years, and its intended introduction was revealed by Jeep way back in 2014.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine

After building 362,841 four-wheel-drive 1⁄4-ton military scout cars—the legendary “jeep”—during World War II, Willys needed something to sell postwar. A civilian version of the Willys MB was introduced, but the company wanted something more mainstream.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve

Consumer Guide Automotive Despite being one of the oldest basic designs in the midsize-SUV segment, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is consistently one of the best-selling vehicles in its class. However, the Grand Cherokee has never offered one key feature that would allow it to compete more directly with rivals such as the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, and Volkswagen Atlas—a third-row seat. That changes with the introduction of the 2021 Grand Cherokee L, an all-new model that kicks off the Grand Cherokee’s fifth generation and comes standard with a third row of seating for 6- or 7-passenger capacity.
