Jeep announced that every model sold in Europe this year has to be electrified. So it started with the introduction of the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe Lineup.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, the first-ever electrified Grand Cherokee, strengthens Grand Cherokee’s leadership position in the full-size SUV segment, offering an all-new plug-in hybrid powertrain delivering 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 MPGe, plus an all-new architecture, two legendary Jeep 4×4 systems, world-class interior, the most advanced, high-tech safety and security features in its class and segment-leading advanced technologies, all at a starting retail price of $57,700.

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, with the standard Quadra-Trac II 4×4 system, has a starting U.S. MSRP of $57,700. The lineup consists of four models – 4xe, Trailhawk 4xe, Overland 4xe and Summit 4xe – as well as one package: Summit Reserve 4xe.

The 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, 2.0-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission for maximum efficiency and capability. Overall, the 4xe system delivers 375 horsepower (280 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. (637 N•m) of torque.

The fuel-efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine is part of Stellantis’s Global Medium Engine family. The high-tech, direct-injection engine uses a twin-scroll, low-inertia turbocharger mounted directly to the cylinder head. Efficiency is enhanced via the use of electric power steering and an electrically driven air-conditioning compressor, removing those loads from the engine.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe model starts at a U.S. MSRP of $57,700 and comes standard with the Selec-Terrain traction management system, which offers five available terrain modes (Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, Mud/Sand) to provide optimized calibrations for any given driving scenario.
