Is the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Nicer Than a Rolls Royce?

Rolls Royce has represented the highest luxury in the automotive world for years. A Rolls Royce is known for perfection, comfort, and style, and unattainable status. And yet now, for far less than you would ever pay for a Rolls Royce, you can have something even better; the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. You’re probably thinking this is a joke, but it isn’t. The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer offers all of the things you think of when you picture a Rolls Royce, yet at a much more affordable price.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has better features than the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge

According to MotorTrend, the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge is really nice – but not as nice as the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Sure, as MotorTrend points out, the Rolls Royce Cullinan has a lot going for it, like rear-hinged doors and umbrellas in the doors. Still, the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has even more; four-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay, and Active Driving Assist. You know, things you can actually use.

Besides that, the 2022 Grand Wagoneer offers rear-seat entertainment and a McIntosh sound system. The Grand Wagoneer’s sound system has 23 speakers, seven more than in the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan. And it has 19 more USB ports throughout the SUV, at 22 to the Rolls Royce’s 3.

The ride between the 2022 Grand Wagoneer and 2022 Cullinan are surprisingly similar

When you pay more than some people spend on a house on your SUV, you expect that it will feel like you’re riding in a cloud. At the very least, it should be more comfortable than something a mainstream car manufacturer puts out. And yet it’s not. The ride is good, it’s excellent, that isn’t a problem. What is concerning, at least if you’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on your SUV, is that the Jeep Grand Wagoneer’s ride is just as good.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer comes with a 6.4-liter V8 that can make 471-hp. The 2022 RollsRoyce Cullinan, on the other hand, has a 6.8-liter turbo V12.

The Grand Wagoneer costs less than a third of the Rolls Royce

This probably comes as no surprise, but the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is way, way cheaper than the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan. The Grand Wagoneer starts at $87,845. That’s not an insignificant amount for an SUV, but it pales in comparison to the Cullinan. The 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge starts at $335,350. You don’t have to be a math whiz to know that the Rolls Royce costs a whole lot more than the Grand Wagoneer.

If you’ve been thinking about laying down the cash for the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge but you’ve hesitated – whether it’s because it’s an astronomical sum for an SUV, or you just aren’t sure it’s the right SUV for you, you might want to check out the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It has everything you’re likely looking for in the Rolls Royce – except the name. Only you can decide if that’s worth roughly $250,000.
