It looks like a lifted Caprice station wagon to me… It’s hideous.The Wagoneer just looks... odd to me. My wife says the same and we can't really put our finger on why.
I think it's a lot of things together. The windows are small and odd shapes, the wheels/tires are too small, there is no rear bumper so the rear is just a flat slab.
The Cherokee L looks great. The Wagoneer is a swing and miss IMO.
Yes, but they unfortunately aren't as wide. I noted that in the L thread. My dealer has none in stock at the moment, but are able to add them on (the OE ones) for less than $1500. We'll be looking at that option, as dad likes that vehicle better.You can get running boards for the Grand Cherokee L
My mom likes huge vehicles, dad? not so much now. They do want an SUV though (dad wanted a truck). Dad has a car presently (a Town Car) but getting in and out of that is also a struggle for mom, because she has to get down into it. The truck or large SUV, kneeled down, with the large running board steps and the big grab handle on the pillar is very easy for her, basically no effort.It would seem that getting in and out easily is the key for a new vehicle for them. Do they need a vehicle that size? Fuel is not going to get cheaper for the foreseeable future.
I'd much prefer not driving that giant whale of a Wagoneer. Much better for older people.Yes, but they unfortunately aren't as wide. I noted that in the L thread.

Ah - those dreaded (Chevy Chase - family truckster) station wagons of the 60s and 70s, 80s.
Thanks Mr. Tips with 50 posts, guess I completely forgot about the existence of search engines! stupid 'lil me, eh?100 grand….lmao… no way man, even if you got it….Havent they been plagued with crazy electrical problems? Yep googled and edited. Ya’ll should probably do a little research before committing. Module failure and glitches a plenty.
Hey buddy….Extinguish the flames. I mean you no disrespect. What in the world? Appropriately named i suppose. Mr. 50 posts? What? Ouch. Lol give me a break cheif.Thanks Mr. Tips with 50 posts, guess I completely forgot about the existence of search engines! stupid 'lil me, eh?
I'm going to let you in on a secret: If you google any vehicle you'll find a laundry list of issues.
STOP! Wild, right?!
Makes it exceedingly difficult to determine if they are statistically significant or not, despite how good one is at plugging in a vehicle's name into that google search box.
Luckily, since I'm friends with the owner of the dealership, I just ask him, and he tells me, quite openly, if something has been problematic or not. If this vehicle was a concern, he wouldn't have even let me take it out, it would have been "no, they haven't got these sorted yet, look at a 1500". There have been a few TSB's and software updates for it, like there were with the DT 1500 (we have an extremely early build DT 1500), but nothing wildly unusual for a new vehicle.
Thanks for the time taken to outline your profound insight and personal experience with the vehicle in question however, it is greatly appreciated.
Both my parents have an aversion to minivansIt may not be to their liking for other reasons, but I swear one of the easiest vehicles to get into and out of whether young or old is this one:
