PERFORMANCE ART SERIES Grand Wagoneers Bring the Wood Back!

LAGUNA HILLS, California, August 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jeep Grand Wagoneer Woodies have plied America’s roads for generations, transporting families on wonderful adventures in the great outdoors. These iconic family wagons defined and set the bar for all modern SUVs, hauling kids, dogs, camping gear, boats and bikes, furniture and garage items wherever people needed them…they are the granddaddy of SUVs and have a special place in Americana.

Jeep has once again outdone themselves in bringing back the Wagoneer line of full-size vehicles. Big, powerful and capable beyond what is needed. Impressive with exquisite luxury, fit, finish and detail…yet something was missing for those of us looking for the iconic wood sides of our favorite big Jeep.

“We appreciate the dilemma faced by Jeep’s design team. After all, how can the new Grand Wagoneer have wood, or worse; fake wood veneers and plastic moldings, as a high-end luxury vehicle;” states Ron Flint, President/CEO of Motive. “We had the idea to bring wood back to the new Grand Wagoneer by making each vehicle a work of art. The wood grain art is hand-painted in a variety of woods and colors, digitally applied and then buried under the vehicle’s own deep gloss clear coat. Owners can choose between several wood grains, including classic dark walnut, black wood, redwood, zebrano wood, Hawaiian koa wood, and highly stylized multi-colored burnt wood grains.”

PERFORMANCE ART SERIES Grand Wagoneers come in three editions, all specially designed to reclaim the throne as the coolest of all the big luxury SUVs. Each edition features unique forged wheels or factory models and optional performance equipment. Options and accessories include lifestyle gear ranging from custom leather luggage to color-matched Jeep E-bikes, Airstream trailers and jet skis.

  • CLASSIC EDITION Grand Wagoneer features traditional Dark Walnut woodgrain with perimeter pinstriping along with 22″ bright alloy wheels with bronze accents. Available accessories include leather luggage, car blankets, a matching Coleman cooler and a well-stocked wooden picnic basket.
  • The GRAND ADVENTURE EDITION features rough-sawn artistic wood grain and colors along with off-road spec special edition Mopar 18″ wheels wrapped in solid all-terrain tires. A wide range of outdoor lifestyle accessories are available as well as PERFORMANCE ART CONCIERGE arranged outdoor adventures for our owners.
  • The GRAND TOURING EDITION features colored wood grain art, like the red-tinted Blackwood version, 22″ forged alloy wheels with optional finishes, Michelin performance tires and our own AIR-SPEED rear roof spoiler. Options include a performance brake package, stainless steel exhaust, custom needlework and satin finish exterior paint.

PERFORMANCE ART Grand Wagoneers will debut this summer and fall at PERFORMANCE ART CONCIERGE luxury media events in Santa Barbara, Yosemite National Park and Honolulu Hawaii.

Production is limited this year to 50 vehicles at Aria Group’s state-of-the-art design, engineering and manufacturing facility in Irvineca.

PERFORMANCE ART SERIES Grand Wagoneers starts at $150,000 and are available exclusively through Motive and Windward Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-RAM by Hawaii.
