Cincinatti Wagoneer Dealer

If you are looking for an all-new Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer, then there is really only one place to go to get the exact model and trim that you want. Zimmer Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is your Cincinnati Wagoneer dealer. We carry the entire lineup of great cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram, including the full-size Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs. If you live and work in the Queen City or just across the Ohio River in Kentucky, then you know the value of having a rugged and dependable vehicle that can handle the extremes of weather we often experience here.

One of the biggest benefits of going to an authorized dealership like Zimmer CDJR is that you can get the models you are looking for most, including some of the harder-to-find trim levels and packages. This is especially the case with new vehicles like the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. In all actuality, the Wagoneer is the revival of a model that hasn’t been built in over 30 years. This offshoot from Jeep has taken the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer and updated them for the modern driver, turning them into a whole new luxury brand while staying true to the legacy that created these two great vehicles.

Legacy of the Wagoneer

Back in the early '60s, Jeep faced increasing competition in the market for drivers who wanted a vehicle rugged enough to stand up to the harsh conditions of the great outdoors while also providing creature comforts that families desired and expected in their vehicles. The folks at Jeep decided to come up with a vehicle that combined the 4x4 capabilities of a Willys Jeep with the roominess and ride of a station wagon. Thus was born the Wagoneer, introduced in time for the 1963 model year, and in its wake was created a whole new category of vehicles that would come to be known as Sport Utility Vehicles or SUVs.

The first Wagoneer gave drivers a choice of two-door or four-door models, with the latter marketed to large families that needed the extra room for all the kids, their luggage, and the family dog. The tailgate design on the rear of the Wagoneer made accessing all that stuff safe and easy. While there were some early models with rear-wheel drive, these Wagoneers proved unpopular, as people wanted the added traction that only a 4x4 drivetrain could provide. This is the reason why early advertising of the Jeep Wagoneer was targeted at folks who were concerned about their sedans and coupes getting stuck in the snow.

The first models of the Wagoneer were powered by an I-6 gas engine, but this was also eventually replaced by a more powerful and dependable V8 engine. It was initially a 5.4-liter V8 with 250 horsepower that was upgraded over time. The Wagoneer also pioneered the concept of an independent front suspension and automatic transmission on a four-wheel drive vehicle, something that is quite common in today’s SUVs.

As the popularity of the Wagoneer grew, so did the model itself. The Super Wagoneer trim was introduced in 1966 with added luxury items like power steering, power brakes, a push-button radio, and a tilt-adjustable steering wheel. This model would eventually be replaced by the Wagoneer Limited in 1978, which added leather seats, power windows, power seats, disc brakes, a roof rack, and even extended wood body paneling. This was a nod to the old woody station wagons of a bygone era. The Limited would become known as the Grand Wagoneer in 1984, signaling its place as Jeep’s luxury SUV.

Sadly, the Grand Wagoneer was discontinued after the 1991 model year, and the Wagoneer soon followed in 1993 after an unsuccessful relaunch as a Grand Cherokee with wood grain elements. In many ways, the success of the Jeep Grand Cherokee marked the end of the line for the larger Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

Revival of the Wagoneer

Just like you can’t keep a good person down for long, the same holds true for a vehicle with a storied legacy like the Wagoneer. Jeep raised the expectations of full-size SUV enthusiasts when it announced that it would bring the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer back as three-row luxury models in time for the 2022 model year. The results show that it paid to be patient as they are well worth the 30-year wait for their return.

The 2022 Wagoneer is the more utilitarian of the two models, with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with eTorque that is capable of producing 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. This engine has been named the Eagle, and it comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Wagoneer gives you the choice of rear-wheel drive for better fuel economy and four-wheel drive for greater traction. The rear-wheel drive model will give you a combined 18 miles per gallon, while the four-wheel drive Wagoneer gets a combined 17 miles per gallon.

The Wagoneer is also seriously powerful, giving you the capability to tow up to 10,000 pounds. This is the kind of towing power usually reserved for full-size pickup trucks, not luxury SUVs. In addition, you can fit up to 116.7 cubic feet of cargo inside the Wagoneer with the two rear rows folded down. In all, you will have no problem comfortably seating up to 8 passengers in your 2022 Wagoneer, with heated and ventilated front leather seats.

The 2022 Grand Wagoneer pulls out all of the luxury stops. With its 6.4-liter HEMI V8 gas engine capable of 471 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque, the Grand Wagoneer will get you wherever you are going quickly and safely. Just like the Wagoneer, the Grand Wagoneer comes with a very responsive 8-speed automatic transmission, as well as a choice of rear-wheel drive or a 4x4 drivetrain. The Quadra-Lift Air Suspension on the Grand Wagoneer will give you the smoothest and most comfortable ride you’ve ever experienced.

Each model of the 2022 Grand Wagoneer has a premium leather interior with a 12.3-inch info cluster across the front dashboard that gives this model a futuristic look. The Grand Wagoneer also features a premium audio system from McIntosh that may be the finest offered on any luxury sports utility vehicle. The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer feature the Uconnect 5 infotainment system with built-in navigation. The Wagoneer has a 10.1-inch touchscreen, while the Grand Wagoneer is equipped with a 12-inch touchscreen.

Luxury Features

If the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer could be described musically, they would be an orchestra of luxury. From the refined exterior color schemes to the interior comfort amenities, there is no shortage of luxury available for the full-size SUV. The interior materials make it known just what sort of experience you can expect when you step inside the four-door, three-row SUV. You will be greeted with the option of three high-quality interior options, including Nappa leather-trimmed seats that feature massage technology, Palermo leather-trimmed seats with massage technology, or Quilted Palermo leather-trimmed seats with massage technology.

Memory settings for heated and ventilated front seats help add to the appeal of the full-size SUV, while heated and ventilated second-row seats and available second-row captain chairs help give additional passengers that feeling of high-class comfort. 20-way power-adjustable driver and front passenger seats come standard across the entire Grand Wagoneer trim lineup, along with power 4-way driver and passenger lumbar support with 4-way front power head restraints. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration that works in conjunction with the Uconnect 5 HD touchscreen provides users with the fastest Uconnect experience yet, along with a separate 10.25-inch front passenger interactive display unit.

There is also the availability of 10.1-inch rear entertainment screens for passengers in the back rows and standard integration of 4G LTE Wi-Fi support for keeping smart devices connected while you're on the road. Multiple USB and HD video media ports are sprinkled throughout the cabin, with luxury audio accouterments such as the McIntosh MX950 entertainment system, elevating the auditory experience in the cabin to new heights. However, it's possible to push the boundaries on audio output even further with the McIntosh MX1375 entertainment system, which boasts an impressive 23-speaker setup and a 12-inch subwoofer for an unparalleled listening experience available for everyone inside the vehicle.

Traveling within the Wagoneer also keeps you close to the beauty of nature with a tri-pane panoramic sunroof that stretches across the first and second row. It's a great way to enjoy the great outdoors while situated comfortably within the luxury SUV's cabin. The availability of luxury front and rear floor mats helps add to the interior appeal of the Wagoneer, along with a hydrographic trim applique and automatic four-zone climate control. You can also keep track of what's happening in the second and third rows, thanks to the rear-seat monitoring camera.

In addition to being technologically adept, the full-size SUV etches luxury elements throughout every aspect of the cabin; this includes luxury door trim panels, suede headliners with available black interior accents, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. With the standard implementation of real wood interior accents, power-adjustable pedals with memory settings, and available embossed metal interior accents, there is a lot that the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer bring to the table when it comes to luxury. You'll never be left wanting when it comes to refinement and comfort while riding in this full-size SUV.

What Is the Difference Between the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer?

Shopping for the right kind of model and trim may seem like a daunting task because there are different trims, configurations, and packages available for the Wagoneer. What's more is that you have the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, which may make things confusing for some potential SUV shoppers, but at Zimmer Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, our experts can easily help you find exactly what kind of Wagoneer works for you, whether it be a specific trim, color, or configuration.

One of the biggest questions is what is the difference between the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer? Well, there are multiple differences. If you want the Wagoneer and all the basic luxury amenities it has to offer, you can opt for the Series I, Series II, or Series III trim in two-wheel or four-wheel drive formats. The Grand Wagoneer, however, not only comes in the standard Series trims but also has an Obsidian trim available, which comes with a premium infotainment system, luxury cabin features, and black color accents both on the exterior and the interior.

The most obvious difference between the two vehicles is the exterior. The front fascia between the two full-size SUVs is completely different. The Wagoneer has a slightly longer grille coming down off the hood, along with the Wagoneer lettering across the bottom of the hood, above the grille. The Grand Wagoneer has lettering tucked into a very slimmed-down chrome Argent grille on the front fascia. A more refined lower front bumper and two-tone exterior palette help add further visual distinction between the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

The Wagoneer also comes standard with 18-inch aluminum wheels on the Series I trim, with available 22-inch polished aluminum wheels with black pockets for the Series II and Series III trims. The Grand Wagoneer Series I comes standard with 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with Baltic gray pockets. There is also the availability of 22-inch fully-painted satin-carbon aluminum wheels or 22-inch machined aluminum wheels with black noise pockets for the Series II and Series III trims. The Grand Wagoneer Obsidian trim also comes standard with 22-inch tinted polished wheels with black inserts.

You have access to more luxury and comfort features available for the Grand Wagoneer as well, including massaging seats, larger display screens, an upscale audio system, and higher quality materials for the interior. However, higher-quality materials do come at the expense of more weight, and so the standard Wagoneer has a slightly higher towing capacity of 10,000 pounds compared to the Grand Wagoneer's 9,850 pounds. Both iterations of the vehicle give you lots of options, but if you want even higher quality features at a premium price, you can opt for the Grand Wagoneer.

What Are the Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L?

Whoever said you can have too much of a good thing obviously never saw the Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L. Designed to roll out in time for the 2023 model year, these versions of the popular Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models took the existing full-size SUV and supersized it. For example, while the Wagoneer has a sizable 123-inch wheelbase, the Wagoneer L stretches out to an impressive 130-inch wheelbase. That may seem like only 7 inches, but it is actually a great deal more than that when you are talking about trunk space. While you have a roomy 27.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row of the Wagoneer, the Wagoneer L gives you a truly cavernous 42.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

You can see the same thing with the Grand Wagoneer L. Just like the Wagoneer and Wagoneer L; there are 7-inches of additional length on the Grand Wagoneer L compared to the Grand Wagoneer. This translates into 44.2 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, significantly more than the already impressive 28.4 cubic feet of capacity on the Grand Wagoneer. All in all, the Grand Wagoneer L will give you up to 116.7 cubic feet of space if you fold down the rear two rows of seats. The Wagoneer L takes this even farther, giving you an incredible 131 cubic feet of space for your things when you fold down both rows of seats.

This difference in size carries over to the passenger compartment as well. The Wagoneer L comfortably seats up to 8 passengers, while the Grand Wagoneer L replaces the second-row 60/40 bench seat with two captain’s chairs, allowing it to seat up to 7 passengers with plenty of space for everyone over its three rows.

The difference is not just about size but also performance. The Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L are equipped with a different engine than their regular-sized linemates. Each of these super large models comes with a 3.0-liter Hurricane Turbo I-6 gas engine with Stop/Start technology. This replaces the 6.4-liter HEMI Apache V8 engine on the Grand Wagoneer and the 5.7-liter HEMI Eagle V8 on the Wagoneer. Even though these are both inline 6-cylinder engines, the twin turbochargers more than make up for the performance while delivering amazing fuel economy.

The 3.0L I-6 on the Wagoneer L can produce 420 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque, while the high-output one on the Grand Wagoneer L delivers an astounding 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. In addition, this engine is quite efficient for its size, with the Grand Wagoneer L able to get an estimated 14 miles per gallon in the city and 20 miles per gallon on the highway. These two full-size SUVs don’t skimp on performance, with the Grand Wagoneer L capable of towing up to 9,750 pounds and the Wagoneer L able to tow 10,000 pounds.

Awards the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Have Earned

The Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are more than just specs on a sheet; the nameplate has wooed and wowed shoppers and critics alike. This has been reflected in the awards the Grand Wagoneer has achieved. One such award includes the CarBuzz 2021 Family Luxury Award, thanks to offering an infotainment suite five times faster than the previous operating system, the adaptive Quadra-Lift air suspension, and the high-end luxury features.

Both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer were also on the receiving end of being honored with multiple awards from the Texas Honors. The Grand Wagoneer was awarded the SUV of Texas, and the Grand Wagoneer Series III trim also took home the award for the Full-Size Luxury SUV of Texas. The Wagoneer wasn't left wanting, either. The Texas Honors named it the Full-Size SUV of the year, beating out other segment competitors for critical acclaim. J.D. Power also gave the 2022 Grand Wagoneer the J.D. Power U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards, stating it's projected to hold the highest percentage of the manufacturer's suggested retail price.

Lease a Wagoneer

This is the perfect kind of deal for someone who has a set weekly commute and wants to get to and from work in superior luxury and performance.

The benefits of leasing a new vehicle are numerous. For example, you can often lease a more desirable vehicle than you can buy, depending on your budget. Also, leasing gives you the ability to get to know a vehicle before you commit to buying one. This is especially helpful for newer models like the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Finally, leasing allows you to roll over into a new model at the end of the lease term.

When you are talking about the benefits of leasing, they only increase exponentially with Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. First, leasing a Wagoneer gets you into the unmatched Wagoneer Client Services program, the most comprehensive VIP experience for any model offered today.

Our service team features factory technicians who are certified to work on all Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models. Sure, you can try to save a few dollars by taking it to a local mechanic. But do you really want to trust just anyone with your valuable Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer?

At Zimmer CDJR, our team has the experience and know-how to handle every problem that may arise with your vehicle. This can be a routine maintenance job, like changing the oil and oil filter, rotating the tires, and checking all the fluid levels on your Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. However, it does not stop there. Our team will also give your SUV a complete inspection each time you bring it to our service center to make sure that there aren’t any potential problems down the road. While most local mechanics can rotate tires and do an oil change, they are not going to have the experience to spot issues before they become major problems, especially on newer vehicles like the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Our service team brings that experience to every service job they encounter.

If you do encounter a major problem at some point with your Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer, don’t worry. Our service team has the training and experience to help you in the unlikely event that you need a major repair. It is this dedication to getting the job done right that sets Zimmer CDJR apart from our competitors. It is also one of the main reasons to take your vehicle to a full service Wagoneer dealership like ours whenever you need maintenance or repairs.

We also only use genuine, certified Mopar parts and accessories on your Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. One issue that can present problems down the road is when you get your vehicle serviced with generic parts. While this might save you a few dollars now, it can lead to potentially expensive repairs later on when these parts fail or cause other difficulties with your vehicle. By bringing your Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer to an authorized full-service Wagoneer dealer using only Mopar parts, you will get the peace of mind that the job on your vehicle was done right. It will also extend the life of your Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer, so you can enjoy your luxury full-size SUV for many years.
