Jeep® has officially announced pricing for the first-ever electrified Grand Cherokee – Grand Cherokee 4xe. The Grand Cherokee 4xe strengthens the nameplate’s leadership in the full-size E-SUV segment, by now offering a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain for its two-row offering.
The 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission for maximum efficiency and capability.
