Just a year ago, Jeep launched its two types of SUV duo. The Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer certainly attracted the attention of big car enthusiasts, but there was one missing feature, one detail that was 12 inches long, in fact. The Jeep took the opportunity of his visit to the New York Motor Show to launch the long version of his two impressive cars.
We bring you the new 2023 Jeep Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L, two SUVs that will be more versatile than any other major US use. Although the exterior design is exactly what one would expect from a longer version of a car that is already large, its upgrade still required several adjustments to the car’s brakes.
Indeed, in addition to adding a foot to the overall height, the wheelbase is also longer (7 in.) Which should result in increased comfort for the occupants. We will see these roadblocks as they enter the market later this year. Jeep has also proven that the popular 4 ‘x 8’ plywood sheet can fit inside the cupboards with both rows of seats folded down.
Further placement of Jeep cars still depends on the shape of the stairs, but the floor, structure, reinforcement and fixings of the seats in particular, have all been redesigned towards the back of the car.
So far, the change has remained simple, but under the hood, Jeep is taking the opportunity to introduce its new 3.0-liter Hurricane 6-cylinder in-line twin-turbo engine. The new engine is also available in two power levels: the standard 420 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque, while the higher output version offers 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft instead. Not surprisingly, it is an eight-speed automatic unit that handles power transmission to a four-wheel drive either version of the full-size SUV. You will have realized that the most powerful engine is reserved for the Grand Wagoneer L version, while another restriction is found on the Wagoneer L.
With these two new engines, the Jeep is undoubtedly looking to reduce its average fuel consumption, but it should also be noted that the power of these machines is better than the two HEMI V8 currently installed under the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer caps “without L”.
In Canada, the demand for either L trim will not be as great as it is south of the border, but Jeep seems confident it can win fewer users with these two new versions of L. What is missing from this story is the electronic version. but that is another story!
