2022 Jeep Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer: exterior
In terms of exterior design, the Wagoneer remains close to the concept revealed last year. Up front, the trademark Jeep seven-slat grille is embellished in chrome but loses the cool illumination feature present on the concept. Furthermore, the tail-lights don’t span the width of the tailgate, as was seen on the concept. The concept also sat on massive 24-inch wheels, but only wheels ranging from 18 to 22 inches are available on the production models.
The Grand Wagoneer models can be distinguished by their use of more chrome, unique lower front fascia, a black roof, and the addition of ‘Grand" on its badging, as well as more equipment.
There are seven exterior colour options available for the Wagoneer –Diamond Black, Bright White, Luxury White, Silver Zynith, Baltic Gray, Velvet Red, and River Rock Blue, and the Grand Wagoneer adds Midnight Sky Blue, Rocky Mountain Green, and Ember Red to its palette.
