Large and In-Charge: 2023 Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L
The re-introduction of the all-American SUV icon has been a hit for Jeep. However, you won’t find a Jeep badge on it. Instead, it is simply called the Wagoneer because this SUV is the ultra-premium version of a Jeep. The Wagoneer is the capable, wood-paneled SUV you remember seeing in the 1980s and ‘90s and it has been back on the roads for a little over a year now. While the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer variants are large, it has been decided that the vehicle could be expanded for even more cargo capacity and passenger comfort. Thus, the 2023 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer L have been born!

The 2023 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer lineups are expanding. In addition to the standard wheelbase that we are used to seeing, both vehicles will offer a long wheelbase option that features an extra 12 inches. With a seven-inch increase to the wheelbase and a five-inch increase in the rear overhang, you can take advantage of extra cargo room compared to the outgoing models.
Before the introduction of the new Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L, customers thought that the Grand Wagoneer was larger than the Wagoneer. This is not true. The Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are the same size and built on the same platform. The differences lie under the hood and in the interior and exterior options.
One of the biggest differences between the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer is the engine. All Wagoneers come with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8. This engine is stout and provides a best-in-class towing capacity of 10,000 pounds when properly equipped. This engine also has a mild hybrid system that adds low-end torque for impressive starting power and off-road capability while providing best-in-class city and highway driving ranges. The Grand Wagoneer offers even more power with the legendary 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine producing 471 horsepower and 455 lb.-ft. of torque. The newest addition to the powertrain lineup – available on the newly introduced 2023 Grand Wagoneer L – is the 3.0-liter Hurricane twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine. You’ll experience increased horsepower, torque, and fuel efficiency compared to the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 while towing capacity stays virtually identical. This new high-end performer has 510 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque while achieving 14 miles per gallon in the city and 20 miles per gallon on the highway.
When thinking about the difference between the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer and their new L counterparts, think about the competition. Currently, Lincoln offers a Navigator and a Navigator L option. Additionally, the General Motors family of SUVs does this for the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV. Premium, American SUVs have come in two size variants for many years and now the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer have come to play. You might think to yourself, why would anyone choose one size or the other? There are many factors to consider when spending this money on a new vehicle. You may have several children who play sports and need additional cargo room of the L. On the other hand, you may have a tight garage space and don’t need the extra room so you go for the smaller model.
