McIntosh-Powered Wagoneer Luxury SUV Available Soon

Jeep's Grand Wagoneer is confirmed for 2021, complete with McIntosh reference audio systems.

McIntosh Laboratory has unveiled two extraordinary McIntosh Entertainment Systems—the MX1375 Reference Entertainment System and the MX950 Entertainment System. These are set to hit the streets in the upcoming 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, which will be available mid-2021.

The McIntosh MX1375 Reference Entertainment System (RES) has been designed and engineered to bring reference-quality sound to the road. Featuring Adaptive 3D Surround Processing, we're promised an immersive acoustic experience that produces sonic imaging and spatial detail that transports you to the performance from the comfort of a luxury SUV.

The McIntosh MX950 Entertainment System boasts many of McIntosh's patented technologies borrowed from its home audio systems. It so should deliver high-quality sonic reproduction with low distortion and fast response.

The McIntosh MX1375 Reference Entertainment System will be available exclusively in the Grand Wagoneer that sports 23 specifically tuned speakers, including one of the highest performing 12-inch subwoofers in the industry, according to the Binghamton-based brand. Additionally, the system is powered by a 24-channel 1375-watt amplifier.

The McIntosh MX950 Entertainment System will be available in Grand Wagoneer Series I and Series II, and Wagoneer Series III models. The MX950 features 19 custom-tuned speakers, including a 10-inch subwoofer and a 17-channel amplifier producing 950 watts.

Wagoneer and McIntosh spent a significant amount of time developing a sound system for the Grand Wagoneer Concept that debuted last autumn. Throughout that journey, McIntosh saw Wagoneer's strong commitment to creating a premium SUV that would spare no expense on its sound system.

McIntosh's acoustics experts worked on a prototype of the vehicle cabin. They had free rein to create the best possible audio system design that envelops all passengers in a live music experience. Engineers from both companies spent countless hours studying the vehicle's interior to fine-tune the MX1375 Reference Entertainment System. 

Charlie Randall, President of McIntosh Laboratory, Inc., told StereoNET

When we were developing the MX1375 Reference Entertainment System, we set up a McIntosh Reference room next to the Wagoneer team's facility to ensure the best parts of the home system experience made it into the Grand Wagoneer. It was fascinating to hear the progression as the vehicle started to take on qualities of the Reference Room itself. I can't wait for customers to hear and feel it for themselves.

The unmistakable blue meters are all present and correct to reinforce the iconic McIntosh style as they appear on the vehicle's infotainment display. Grand Wagoneer owners will soon experience what it's like having a McIntosh sound system with them on-the-go.
