After several months in which we already knew the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, the American brand has presented the new version of this model of the popular off-road vehicle, the Grand Cherokee 4xe. Unlike the version we knew, this has five seats and by eliminating the third row of seats, it has reduced the wheelbase. The new Jeep Grand Cherokee 2022 has 126 mm less wheelbase and this is 2 694 mm.
The other novelty in the model is a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, which will help you transition to electric mobility. But what does not change is the off-road essence of the model. It is a car with a powerful and active presence. The grill shows a division of seven vertical sections. Together with them, the LED headlights give it a more modern and attractive image.
The front bumper is quite imposing, with a center grille dominating the space. The charging point cover is located on the side to make it more accessible. In the external appearance, there is a selection of wheels, which together with the black roof that offers the contrast with the color of the bodywork allow an imposing appearance.
The rear also has elongated LED headlamps, linked together by a black stripe with the brand’s logo. Each 2022 Grand Cherokee trim has a different bumper for a more personalized look.
2022 Grand Cherokee interior
Inside we find the same design as in the Grand Cherokee L that we already knew. Quality materials and two screens in the front. One controls the Uconnect 5 system and another screen in front of the front passenger, the first with 10.1 inches and the second with 10.25 inches. Instrumentation is also displayed on a digital display.
To make passengers more comfortable, the seats can be adjusted to 16 positions. They have a memory function, lumbar adjustment, massage and both these and the rear seats have full air conditioning. As an option, more storage space can be included in the center console, as well as a wireless charger.
Hybrid Engine for Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe
In addition to the two combustion versions that are offered of this model, we find the plug-in hybrid version. The combustion engine that powers this version is a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline block. This is joined by two electric motors that offer a total power of 375 hp and a maximum torque of 675 Nm.
The battery that powers the two electric motors has a voltage of 400 volts and a power of 17 kWh. With this, the off-road vehicle can travel up to 40 kilometers, with a total autonomy of 700 kilometers. Power, load management, and electric autonomy are regulated through the E Selec modes: Hybrid, Electric, and Save.
Technology and security
At the safety level, the new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe includes a battery of driver assistance systems to improve driver safety. Up to 110 items are part of the equipment to improve safety while driving. In addition, it includes other optional systems such as the night vision camera with pedestrian identification, among others.
