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.

Even if you’re only vaguely aware of GMC products in general and Sierra full-sized pickups in particular, you probably know the brand’s most stylish and luxurious examples have long worn the Denali nameplate. Denali made its debut as GMC’s top-of-the-line 1998 Yukon sport-utility vehicle. Before GMC got around to cataloging a Sierra Denali, however, there was the mostly forgotten (not by us, obviously) 2001 Sierra C3.
