Are you ready for the return of an American icon? Jeep made a huge announcement when it unveiled the all-new Wagoneer sub-brand and confirmed the return of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer to American roads. This announcement has Jeep fans buzzing with excitement, especially the all-new 2022 Grand Wagoneer that promises to deliver a unique luxury experience whether you’re behind the wheel, riding shotgun, or enjoying the ride from the spacious backseat.
At the heart of the Grand Wagoneer’s premium experience is its exceptional suite of technology that has something to offer everyone. It boasts up to 75 inches of screens throughout the cabin, as well as a variety of connectivity and entertainment features that give you access to everything you need at the touch of a button or with a simple voice command. The tech extends even further to driver-assist tools that make the 2022 Grand Wagoneer one of the most innovative luxury SUVs on the road. Here’s a closer look at how and why!
#1 Screens, Screens, and More Screens!
The 2022 Grand Wagoneer will offer up to 75 inches of screens throughout the cabin to put everything you need right where you need it most. In the front row, you’ll find almost 45 inches of displays that stretch across the front panel. The largest display is the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, followed by the 12.0-inch reconfigurable center touchscreen display. There is even a 10.25-inch screen under the central screen dedicated purely to comfort controls. Combined with the split-screen view on the main screen, this means you don’t have to flip through menus to access all the features you need.
Aside from accessing multiple apps at once, Wagoneer truly thought of everything to keep you safe and focused on the road. The Grand Wagoneer features a unique 10.25-inch passenger touchscreen display that gives the front-seat passenger access to navigation, device management, the entertainment system, and the exterior cameras. This means that you can keep your eyes on the road while your passenger manages your route from Point A to point B, serves as your DJ, or helps you back out of a busy parking lot.
Wagoneer also doesn’t forget your passengers in the backseat with 30 inches of screen space in the second row. This includes a 10.25-inch display in the center console that offers access to climate control as well as separate 10.1-inch entertainment touchscreens for each second-row passenger. Passengers can use the displays to access the rear-seat entertainment system, including the first-ever Amazon Fire TV for Auto.
#2 First-Ever Amazon Fire TV for Auto
For the first time in the automotive industry, the Grand Wagoneer will offer Amazon Fire TV for Auto. This can be displayed on the front passenger screen as well as the rear seat screens, giving passengers access to hundreds of thousands of television shows, movies, and apps. Passengers of all ages can escape the demands of a long drive and lose themselves in their favorite shows or a new film. What’s even better is that everyone can enjoy the entertainment system by using the vehicle’s industry-exclusive McIntosh sound system for an immersive experience.
#3 The Fastest Uconnect System Ever Made
Another great perk that the 2022 Grand Wagoneer offers is the all-new Uconnect 5 system across its entire lineup. The Uconnect 5 system links every screen in the vehicle and provides access to everything from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to navigation and more. The system will offer several new upgrades for 2022 that will make it five times faster than previous Uconnect versions, in addition to offering Wi-Fi capability to keep you connected while you’re on the go.
#4 Stunning Head-Up Display and Enhanced Digital Rearview Mirror
Remember when we said that Wagoneer truly thought of everything? Well, that’s certainly the case with the Grand Wagoneer’s head-up display and digital rearview mirror. The head-up display gives you all the data you need from speed and navigation cues to mileage and more with a full-color 10-inch display on the windshield. The display offers three configuration layouts that can be personalized and saved within your driver profile.
While the head-up display allows you to keep your eyes on the road, Wagoneer knows that you also need to have a clear view behind your Grand Wagoneer. That’s where the digital rearview mirror comes into play. The mirror displays real-time video from the rear-facing camera, which means you have an unobstructed view out the back of the vehicle. If you prefer the traditional rearview mirror, all you have to do is toggle the switch, and you’re back in business!
#5 Innovative Driver-Assist Tools
When you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, you have a lot of responsibility for keeping yourself and your passengers safe. Wagoneer goes the extra mile to give you all the tools you need by equipping the Grand Wagoneer with a suite of exceptional safety and driver-assist tools. With over 120 standard safety features available, you’ll have access to everything from Automatic Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control to Rear Cross Path Detection and Blind Spot Monitoring.
As with everything else, the Grand Wagoneer ups the ante with enhanced driver-assist tools like Active Driving Assist, Hands-Free Active Driving Assist, and the ParkSense Automated Parking System. Active Driving Assist uses adaptive cruise control, lane centering, sensors, and radars to automate driving, while Hands-Free Active Driving Assist allows you to take your hands off the wheel with confidence, knowing that the Grand Wagoneer will get you to your destination. How’s that for innovation?
The Grand Wagoneer’s driver-assist features extend even further with Night Vision with Pedestrian and Animal Detection, which uses thermographic technology to monitor heat signatures on the road ahead. When the system detects a person or animal, you’ll see a notification in your instrument cluster. You can also enjoy other advanced tools like Intersection Collision Assist, Drowsy Driver Detection, and Traffic Sign Recognition, all of which are designed to offer enhanced visibility and ensure your alertness when you’re in the driver’s seat.
If you’re a tech junkie, then there’s no doubt you’re salivating at the thought of all the technology that the 2022 Grand Wagoneer has to offer. It’s undeniably and unquestionably impressive. From nearly 75 inches of screens that provide a one-of-a-kind infotainment experience to the advanced driver-assist technologies, the Grand Wagoneer takes luxury to an entirely new level by giving you and your passengers everything you could ever want in an SUV. But just when you think the Grand Wagoneer can’t offer anything else, Wagoneer surprises you!
The addition of advanced driver-assist tools, the industry-exclusive McIntosh audio system, Amazon Fire TV for Auto, and so much more make the Grand Wagoneer truly grand. These features are what make this premium SUV one of the best-equipped and technologically advanced vehicles on the road, and they don’t even account for its high-quality interior, stunning performance, or its off-road capability. When you consider that and its tech, then the 2022 Grand Wagoneer checks all the boxes of a luxury SUV destined to reprise its status as an American icon!
