Launching into its fifth generation, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee sees a complete redesign, including their 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain option.

The 4xe powertrain will provide an estimated 40 kilometres (25 miles) of all-electric range, an estimated 4.1 litres equivalent per 100 kilometres (Le/100 km) (57 miles per gallon equivalent, MPGe) and a combined driving range of more than 708 km (440 miles).
Impressive figures for a vehicle of this size.

During testing, Jeep says that the 4xe had navigated the Rubicon Trail in full electric mode.In conjunction with their drive towards ‘Zero Emission Freedom,’ power figures come in via a 2.0L turbo charger four-cylinder engine producing 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of torque through and eight-speed automatic transmission, with a maximum towing capacity of 2,720 kg (6,000 lbs.)

The electric component uses two electric motors and a 400-volt, 17-kWh EV battery.

Moreover, it utilizes a Quadra Trac II 4×4 system with two-speed transfer case and 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio and a 47.4:1 crawl ratio.

Similarly to the Wrangler 4xe, the charge port is found at the left front fender, high enough to enable water fording up to 61 cm (24 inches).

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe driver can tailor its hybrid powertrain to suit each trip, from daily commuting in pure-electric mode to extended highway road trips with no range anxiety, allowing owners to explore nature off-road in near silence. By 2025, we plan to offer a fully electric Jeep vehicle in every SUV segment” says Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand Chief Executive Officer.

The 4xe will be available on the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit and Summit Reserve trims and is expected in North America in early 2022.
