2023 Grand Wagoneer Performance

2023 Grand Wagoneer Buyer's Guide

The Grand Wagoneer features a new engine lineup for 2023, and enhances all models with more power and efficiency. 

On the base Grand Wagoneer, you'll find a 6.4-liter V8 engine that produces 471 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. The Series II and Series III models are now powered by a Hurricane Twin Turbo 510 engine which is rated at 510 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.  

If you prefer the naturally-aspirated characteristics of the V8 engine, it's offered as a no-cost option on the Series II and Series III when you also select the Obsidian Package. But the all-new Hurricane Twin Turbo 510 engine should really be considered because it achieves a new benchmark for performance and efficiency in the large SUV segment. In many scenarios, the Hurricane engine is 15 percent more efficient than larger V8 engines.  

That's not to say that the 6.4-liter V8 doesn't have its own methods of improving efficiency. The 2023 Grand Wagoneer's V8 features smart cylinder deactivation and variable camshaft tuning to optimize fuel consumption as well as power availability.
