Jeep Grand Wagoneer Baggage Take a look at | How a lot house behind third row?

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is massive. Its Jeep styling hides that dimension a bit higher than the GM and Ford vans which might be proportioned extra equally to their full-size truck cousins, however this sucker continues to be practically 18 toes lengthy. It is 4 inches longer than a Tahoe/Escalade and Expedition/Navigator (however falls properly wanting their respective Suburban-sized fashions). That additional size is absolutely on show on this take a look at, and fortunately, can really be appreciated by those that purchase this monumental new Jeep.

Word that this take a look at applies to each the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer because the “grand” bit applies to its fanciness quite than a distinction in dimension. As such, the specs say they each have 27.4 cubic-feet of cargo house behind the raised third row. Theoretically, that is a 1.9-cubic-foot benefit over the Tahoe and a extra vital 8.1-cubic-foot distinction over the Expedition. Nonetheless, of their baggage checks, I found that the Tahoe’s real-world benefit is way smaller. This take a look at with the Grand Wagoneer would as soon as once more level within the course of GM’s real-world capability being nearer to Ford’s and Jeep providing the kind of additional capability the specs point out.

The third-row reclines, so per regular, I set it at an angle I might really feel comfy sitting for an prolonged time frame. And I inform you, I actually might within the Grand Wagoneer third-row because it’s legitimately spacious and comfy, even for somebody 6-foot-3. Maybe much more so than the Expedition/Navigator. However that is a story for an additional day. 

As in each baggage take a look at I do, I take advantage of two midsize curler suitcases that will should be checked in on the airport (26 inches lengthy, 16 extensive, 11 deep), two roll-aboard suitcases that simply barely match within the overhead (24L x 15W x 10D), and one smaller roll-aboard that matches simply (23L x 15W x 10D). I additionally embrace my spouse’s fancy in a single day bag simply to spruce issues up a bit (21L x 12W x 12D).

Bam, that was straightforward. All the luggage match. That is the primary SUV I’ve examined, together with crossovers, that might swallow all six luggage behind their raised third rows. The Expedition left one of many greatest luggage behind, whereas the Tahoe would’ve left the flamboyant bag behind except I jammed all the things as much as the ceiling. 

The distinction for the Grand Wagoneer actually comes right down to that additional size. In each the Ford and GM SUVs, my greatest bag goes proper up towards the liftgate. Within the Jeep, notice how a lot house there may be between the most important bag (decrease proper) and the place the carpet meets the scuff plate. Additionally notice that I might stack the opposite massive bag and one of many medium luggage on their facet width-wise. No approach that is occurring in both the Ford or GM. There’s additionally no scarcity of top out there, as even with the flamboyant bag loaded on prime, it was nonetheless additional away from the ceiling than it was within the Expedition, and maintained rear visibility. Bear in mind, I don’t load luggage to the roof for the sake of visibility, luggage flying into the cabin and, at this level, consistency. You are free to take action. 

So there you may have it. Clearly, a Suburban or Navigator L would have extra room than this, however moreover these extended-length fashions, I really feel assured in declaring that the Jeep Grand Wagoneer (and Wagoneer) has probably the most house behind the third row of some other SUV. You may match seven folks inside and may have sufficient room for his or her stuff. 

Now, a couple of different cargo-related objects.

The seats increase and decrease by touching these buttons as soon as. It is a good function, particularly given how a lot of a attain you’d must the third row should you needed to pull it up manually. 

Now for one thing not so good. The ability liftgate button is inside quite than on the liftgate itself. This implies it may be lined up with luggage, because it was throughout this take a look at, or you find yourself fumbling round for it in the dead of night.

Or worse …

You as soon as once more clonk your head on the rattling liftgate that does not increase up as excessive as most different SUVs. Sure, even with the height-adjustment operate. I am tall, but it surely’s sometimes not this unhealthy. Ouch.
