If the Wagoneer name sounds like something you have heard before, then consider yourself a Jeep expert. By the time you read this, there will probably be a few Jeep Waggoneers at your nearest Jeep Dealer in Michigan. According to NADA, more than 16,500 franchised dealerships sold 17.22 million vehicles in 2018, so the chances are high that there is a Jeep dealer near you.

The 2023 Jeep Wagoneer is an impressive full-size SUV that comes with three rows of seats. It is powered by a V8 engine. There’s so much more for you to know, so here is everything you need to know about this car before you visit a Jeep dealer in Michigan.

Super Big and Luxurious

Before the Wagoneer, Jeep had never delivered an SUV so luxurious and big. This car has a huge shell and three rows of seats that accommodate up to eight passengers. You will also find a lot of storage space behind all these seats too. However, when it comes to this car, the luxury and size come at a cost. As you might imagine, with a car this long, the fuel economy will inevitably suffer. The vehicle has a combined EPA rating of just 16 mpg. This is probably because of the new twin-turbo six-cylinder engine with 510 horsepower.

What's New?

If you have seen an earlier version of the Wagoneer, you will probably notice the differences instantly. The 2023 Wagoneer has a wheelbase that's seven inches longer than the previous version, and the car is a foot longer overall. These extensions create room for more cargo space behind rows of seats, but they don't do much for the overall interior space. The front and rear of the car didn't change much. The only things you will notice are the new U-shaped windows and pillars and straight rear doors that add to the overall styling. You will also appreciate the luxury LED lighting on the grille that adds a premium touch to the design.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

One thing that has improved on the new Wagoneer is the engine. Dubbed the Hurricane, the car's engine is a 510-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter that comes with an eight-speed auto-transmission and all-wheel drive. Much like the majority of its domestic rivals, the 2023 Wagoneer uses body-on-frame underpinnings. It features a rear suspension rather than a solid rear axle that comes on most trucks. This gives the car a smoother ride and improved handling.

One thing you will notice when driving the Wagoneer is the relaxed and refined ride. However, because of its pickup-truck structure, you may find the ride a bit jiggly on a pavement that is not as smooth.
