It appears as though the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will not be available with any V8 engines.
As it stands, the Wagoneer is available with a 5.7-liter naturally-aspirated V8 while the Grand Wagoneer can be fitted with a 6.4-liter V8. However, a fleet order guide recently published by Stellantis shows the 2024 Wagoneer as being sold exclusively with the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six Hurricane engine. This powertrain is good for 420 hp at 5,200 rpm and 468 lb-ft (635 Nm) of torque at 3,500 rpm.
Car & Driver has also discovered that fuel economy ratings from the EPA for the 2024 Wagoneer and Wagoneer L make no mention of a V8, only listing the Hurricane inline-six in rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive guises.

Then there’s the more luxurious 2024 Grand Wagoneer. The EPA has listed it as being available with the 6.4-liter V8 but a dealership pricing database viewed by Car & Driver only mentions models with the Hurricane engine, meaning it may be the only engine on offer. If this is the case, we doubt many customers will be concerned.
In fact, the high-output version of the inline-six offered in the Grand Cherokee delivers a mighty 510 hp and 500 lb-ft (678 Nm). That means it is more powerful than the 6.4-liter V8 with its 471 hp and 455 lb-ft (617 Nm). Sure, it doesn’t have the soundtrack but it makes up for that with improved fuel efficiency. EPA data reveals that the 6.4-liter V8 Grand Wagoneer 4WD is rated at 13 mpg city, 18 mpg highway, and 15 mpg combined while the inline-six Grand Wagoneer 4WD returns 14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway, and 17 mpg combined.
