The 2023 Grand Wagoneer will have two engines, the 392 Hemi (6.4 liter V8) and the Hurricane Turbo 510. As with the Wagoneer, the base model will have the V8, while the Series II and Series III will have the Hurricane, which gets around 1 mpg better mileage while delivering more power.
The 392 Hemi is good for 471 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque, a bit less than its performance in Dodge Challengers and Chargers—likely due to tuning differences which account for the Grand Wagoneer’s weight. The Hurricane, on the other hand, produces 510 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, despite its better gas mileage. Both engines require premium fuel.
The alignment of engines mirrors the lower-output Hurricane and the 5.7 Hemi in the standard Wagoneer; both of those engines take midgrade fuel.
The Obsidian Package will be available on both Series II and III for 2023; the base model and Series II will have eight-passenger seating standard, while Series III will have seven-passenger seating with second-row captain’s chairs. The seven-passenger setup is optional on the lower levels.

What about Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L? Aren’t they I6 only?
Yes, but that was already announced.
This brings about an interesting point about the new hurricane powertrains. As it mentioned the difference in the 6.4L v8 in the Wagoneer and the 6.4L in the charger/challenger with power levels being different due to tuning. The Wagoneer sees a 14hp difference than the Charger/Challenger and a 20lb-ft torque difference in torque. Would that potentially indicate the car version would produce 524hp and 520lb-ft of torque? That is close to the rumors from before of the I-6 TT producing 525hp for the next muscle car, whatever it may be called. There is already rumors of a hybrid variant with 575lb-ft of torque but it’s not stated if this hybrid is based on the S.O or the H.O. Right now there are way too many questions left unanswered. Another question left unanswered is what is Dodge going to do to answer this new mustang?? Sure the hurricane powerplant will outpower even the darkhorse but what is it going in?
