While the more mainstream Wagoneer comes with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with eTorque mild-hybrid system as standard equipment. The Grand Wagoneer ups the ante with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 delivering 471 horsepower (351 kW) and 455 lb.-ft. (617 Nm) of torque. The 6.4-liter HEMI is mated to an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. All Grand Wagoneer models come with the legendary Quadra-Drive II four-wheel-drive (4×4) system. The Quadra-Drive II system features a full-time, two-speed transfer case with an electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD).
For those who are wondering, yes, the 6.4-liter in the Grand Wagoneer is a version of the SRT 392 cubic-inch “Apache” HEMI V8 and not the 6.4-liter “BGE” (or Big Gas Engine) HEMI V8 from the Ram Heavy Duty pickups. Jeep states that the 6.4-liter will be tuned for more of a refined experience rather than performance like it is under the hood of the Grand Cherokee and Durango SRT models.
For those who are looking for a rugged SUV to tow the boat, camper, or snowmobile trailer for that weekend away from home, the Grand Wagoneer will be a great choice with its best-in-class towing capacity of 9,860 lbs.
