Built at the new Detroit Assembly Complex – Mack plant, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is scheduled to start arriving in Jeep dealerships in spring of 2022.

The 4xe PHEV technology includes a Quadra Trac II 4x4 system with two-speed transfer case and 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio; 47.4:1 crawl ratio; and 6,000-lbs (2,720 kg) 4xe max towing capability.

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.

2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe. The entry-level Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe model 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.

2022 Grand Cherokee Overland 4xe. 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.

When equipped with the available Off-Road Group, 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.
