Although the all-new “L” variants of the 2023 Jeep® Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer were center stage at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), the American adventure brand surprised us with the introduction of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude 4xe.
The new High Altitude Package will be available on the Grand Cherokee Summit 4xe, Summit Reserve 4xe, Grand Cherokee L Summit, and Summit Reserve. Both Summit and Summit Reserve 4×4 models come standard with the class-exclusive Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension, Quadra-Drive II system with a rear electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD), and Selec-Terrain traction management system with 5 available terrain modes (Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, Mud/Sand).
The Grand Cherokee 4xe delivers 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). The 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, the turbocharged 2.0-liter (GME-T4) inline-four-cylinder engine, and 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
On Summit models, there are premium appointments such as Nappa leather seats with quilted seat bolsters and perforated seat inserts on all three rows, real Absolute Oak trim, leather-wrapped multifunctional steering wheel, and Berber floor mats. First-row seats with power 16-way adjustable position with memory and lumbar are standard and front-row seat massage is optional.
Summit Reserve models add even more premium content like premium hand-wrapped, quilted Palermo leather, ventilated front and second-row seats, memory and massage front seats, genuine open-pore Waxed Walnut wood, and premium, wrapped, suede-like fabric on the A-pillars and headliner. A 19-speaker, 950-watt premium McIntosh audio system is standard on Summit Reserve and available on Summit.
All Grand Cherokee models deliver the most advanced, high-tech safety and security features in their class, with more than 110 safety and security features, including innovative applications of technologies and ample standard content. The Grand Cherokee also comes equipped with the award-winning Uconnect 5 infotainment system, with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The iconic fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee – the most awarded SUV ever – is known for its legendary 4×4 capability, superior on-road refinement, premium styling, and craftsmanship inside and out, and now for 2022 an expanded lineup includes a two-row, a 4xe plug-in-hybrid model and three-row Grand Cherokee L model.
The High Altitude package, with a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $1,495 on Summit and $995 on Summit Reserve. It will also be available in Canada for the MSRP of $1,795 on both Summit and Summit Reserve. The High Altitude package adds premium 21-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels, Gloss Black accents and badges, roof rails, and a unique seven-slot grille to the already well-appointed Summit and Summit Reserve models.
Jeep also showed off the new Hydro Blue Pearl Coat for the 2022 Grand Cherokee, which is available on Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve trims on both two- and three-row offerings with an MSRP of $395 for both the U.S. and Canada.
