U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published an official fuel economy rating for the all-new 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
Mile per gallon figures for this luxury full-size SUV turned out to be less than those of competitors. That is, the Grand Wagoneer has a worse fuel economy.
The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with 2WD has 13 city/19 highway/15 combined mpg, while the all-wheel-drive vehicle has almost the same – 13/18/15 mpg. These data are actual for premium gasoline.
By comparison, the Lincoln Navigator RWD is rated at 16/22/18 mpg, while its 4WD version has 16/20/17 mpg. The Cadillac Escalade’s EPA ratings are 15/20/17 mpg for its RWD model, and 14/19/16 mpg for the FWD vehicle. Both are direct rivals to the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, and, as we can see, they are more efficient.
We recall that the Grand Wagoneer is powered by a 6.4-liter V8 making 471 hp (351 kW) and 455 lb.-ft. of torque. Of course, we did not expect such an engine to be fuel-efficient, but its EPA mpg numbers could have been better.
On the other hand, for those who buy such an expensive model, gasoline costs are not important.
