JEEP, the world’s most iconic SUV brand, continues to climb to new heights as it celebrates its 80th year by introducing the first electrified Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe along with the ultimate off-road Grand Cherokee, the new Trailhawk.

From the moment Jeep introduced the Grand Cherokee in 1992, by literally driving the SUV up the steps of Cobo Hall in Detroit and through a glass window, signifying the breakthrough premium SUV, it set a new industry benchmark and quickly became synonymous with upscale design and uncompromised capability.

This fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee builds on its legacy as the most awarded SUV ever, bringing an all-new architecture, new plug-in hybrid powertrain, all-new exterior design, and all-new interior with world-class craftsmanship and first-to-market technologies to the global full-size SUV segment.

As the most capable SUV brand pushes toward its future of “zero emission freedom,” the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee will be the most technologically advanced and 4x4-capable Jeep Grand Cherokee yet.

After more than seven million in global sales, the most acclaimed SUV ever continues to set the standard among all SUVs with 4xe (PHEV) technology targeting to deliver an estimated 25 miles of all-electric range, 57 miles per gallon equivalent (mpge) and a combined driving range of more than 440 miles.

And with even more of the brand’s legendary capability it is the most 4x4-capable Grand Cherokee ever, the new Trailhawk 4xe having conquered the legendary Rubicon Trail in full-electric operation

With 144.6 cu. ft. of total interior passenger volume (+4.1 cu. ft. over previous generation) and 37.7 cu. ft. of cargo space (+1.4 cu. ft.), the new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers enhanced levels of comfort and spaciousness, including accommodating a set of golf clubs transversely in the cargo hold

With more than 110 advanced safety and security features, including Active Driving Assist with hands-on automated driving, plus 360-degree surround view and night vision cameras, the state-of-the-art Grand Cherokee is designed inside and out to deliver unmatched capability and composed driving dynamics.

Its renowned 4x4 systems (Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II), Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Terrain traction management system instil Grand Cherokee with the Jeep brand’s legendary 4x4 capability.

Available in the Grand Cherokee Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit and Summit Reserve, the 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, 2.0-litre turbocharged, four-cylinder engine and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission for maximum efficiency and capability.

Overall, the 4xe system delivers 375hp thanks to its fuel-efficient 2.0-litre turbocharged I-4 engine.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is scheduled to arrive in North America early in 2022 and in global markets later in the year.
