Jeep appears to be as serious as ever about off-road capability. TFL viewers have spied these 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2022 Jeep Wagoneer & Grand Wagoneer prototypes going up and down the difficult Hell’s Revenge off-road trail near Moab, Utah. Jeep continues to work on the all-new generation of their popular Grand Cherokee SUV. The prototypes you see in the image above appear to the two-row (or shorter) models. Jeep Grand Cherokee L – a larger three-row variant is also coming on sale this year.

The L version of the Grand Cherokee has already made its official debut, but we are still waiting for the standard length new Grand Cherokee to be revealed. These models will also include 4xe plug-in hybrid models. Take a look at the video that is linked at the bottom of this power for a Jeep prototype that was completely silent as it drove away on electric power.

Thanks to Robert Bahus for sending us these images of the Grand Cherokee prototypes. Robert says – he saw these prototypes on the Hell’s Revenge trail which combines rocky terrain, very steep rock climbs, and major obstacles all into one. Most of the major obstacles can be bypassed, and it’s not clear exactly which parts these prototypes decided to tackle. Still, just getting into the Hell’s Revenge trail is no small feat.

If you look closely, you can notice that some of these prototypes are riding at different suspension heights due to their adjustable air suspensions.

The following image of the 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer prototypes were sent to us by Lincoln Pogge. Thank you for sending these! The above image shows the SUVs going up the entrance to Hell’s Revenge trail.

Unlike the unibody Grand Cherokee SUVs, the new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are based on a truck platform that is largely shared with the Ram 1500. The unique part of the Wagoneer chassis is that it’s using an independent rear suspension, instead of the Ram’s solid rear axle.

Here are a few more up close views of the Wagoneer prototypes.
