Rebirth of an American Hero

Jeep rumbles into the electric era with its much-anticipated new lineup of plug-in hybrid electric 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe SUVs. Mark this date as the beginning of the next generation of an iconic vehicle — with Jeep’s innovative 4xe electrification technology. The result is the greenest and most muscular Grand Cherokee that Jeep ever built. But it’s pricey…the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe starts at an MSRP of $57,700, excluding incentives. That’s about ten grand more than it’s internal combustion older brother.

This is the first-ever electrified Grand Cherokee — with an all-new plug-in hybrid powertrain delivering 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 MPGe. The Grand Cherokee 4xe is equipped with the standard Quadra-Trac II 4×4 system, a surprisingly luxurious interior — and among the most advanced high-tech safety and security features in its class. No doubt, for us the GC’s interior is equal to any SUV in its class. The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe comes in various flavors — the lineup consists of:  4xe, Trailhawk 4xe, Overland 4xe and Summit 4xe – and one package: Summit Reserve 4xe.

“The all-new PHEV Grand Cherokee 4xe, along with the first ever three-row Grand Cherokee L and all-new two-row Grand Cherokee, represent the best Grand Cherokee lineup ever,” said Jim Morrison, vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Now with electrified 4xe technology, the Grand Cherokee further strengthens the Jeep brand’s vision of ‘Zero Emission Freedom.'”

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe model starts at an MSRP of $62,485.

The off-road brute force of the Grand Cherokee 4xe lineup, the Trailhawk delivers superb performance over virtually any terrain. The 2022 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe comes standard with low-range Selec-Speed Control (autonomous off-road driving assist) with sand and snow recovery; Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system featuring an active electronic 2-speed transfer case with low range, 47.4:1 crawl ratio and rear eLSD that can send 100% of torque to one rear wheel for maximum 4×4 performance. Boom!

The Trailhawk doesn’t stop there. It also includes the Selec-Terrain System with five settings: Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, Mud/Sand; Quadra-Lift air suspension with semi-active damping delivering 4.7 inches of travel, 10.9 inches of ground clearance, 24 inches of water fording capability and a break-over angle of 22.3 degrees; skid plates; blue tow hooks (with 10,000-lb capacity); Jeep Off-road Pages and class-exclusive sway bar disconnect, which allows for improved articulation and traction over rocks and rough terrain.

2022 Grand Cherokee Overland 4xe

The Grand Cherokee Overland 4xe model has a starting MSRP of $65,760.

Bad-ass from the ground up. Built for the extreme. The Overland 4xe features Jeep’s Quadra-Trac II system, which adjusts torque distribution and will continue to reactively make corrections if tire slip occurs — as much as 100% of available torque is instantly routed to the axle with the most traction. The Trail Rated Overland 4xe model adds the Quadra-Drive II system, high-strength steel skid plates, electronic limited slip differential rear axle, 18-inch aluminum wheels and rugged, all-terrain tires.

Inside the 2022 Grand Cherokee Summit 4xe, we love the Nappa leather seats and door panels, ventilated front seats, leather-stitched instrument panel and premium McIntosh audio system. Includes Uconnect 5 navigation with 10.1-inch display and new ambient lighting with a five-color selection.

Overlands include 20-inch aluminum wheels with Black Noise pockets, front tow hooks, Gloss Black roof rack with Bright Stainless insert, rain-sensing windshield wipers, trailer towing, approach-lit door handles, and more.

 

2022 Grand Cherokee Summit 4xe

While slightly shocking, don’t let the starting pricetag of $74,300 fool you, the 2022 Grand Cherokee Summit 4xe is a lot of Jeep — and the peak of capability and luxury in an SUV, with premium materials and class-exclusive features.

Needless to say, the 2022 Grand Cherokee Summit 4xe has it all — it’s packed with premium Jeep power and luxury, sporting the Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system, Nappa leather seats with quilted seat bolsters and perforated seat inserts, four-zone automatic temperature control, McIntosh audio system with 19 speakers, subwoofer and 950-watt amplifier, Absolute Oak wood and leather-wrapped multifunctional steering wheel and Berber floor mats.
