Jeep's three-row SUVs now come standard with a Hurricane twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with between 420 and 510 horsepower.
The Wagoneer previously offered a 5.7-liter V-8 and the Grand Wagoneer offered a 6.4-liter V-8.
UPDATE 11/21/23: For 2024, the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer no longer offer Hemi V-8s. We had previously reported on the switch to a six-cylinder-only engine lineup, and Jeep confirmed that when last week it released information on its latest three-row SUVs. In a similar move, Ram—Jeep's corporate sibling—recently revised its half-ton truck, which also replaced its V-8s with a Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six.
The recent arrival of the new Hurricane inline-six in the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer for 2023 appears to spell the end of the road for the Hemi V-8s previously available in this model. Jeep has yet to officially release 2024 model-year information, but we found documents suggesting that the 2024 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will only be offered with the twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six, meaning that the previously available 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter V-8 engines will be dropped.
A fleet order guide plus EPA ratings illustrate the changes for the standard 2024 Wagoneer, which previously offered the 392-hp 5.7-liter V-8 on the short-wheelbase version (the long-wheelbase Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L were already inline-six-only). The Wagoneer will now be offered only with the 420-hp version of the Hurricane inline-six, with either rear- or four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Changes for the Grand Wagoneer aren't quite as clear, as the EPA still lists the 6.4-liter V-8 for 2024. But a dealership pricing database shows all models equipped with the 3.0-liter six, meaning that inclusion could just be a holdover from last year. The high-output version of the Hurricane engine in the Grand Wagoneer produces 510 horsepower and 500 pound-feet, a useful upgrade over the V-8's 471 hp and 455 pound-feet.
We've reached out to Jeep representatives for confirmation and have yet to hear back, so we will update this story with official information once it's available.
