The all-new Jeep® Grand Cherokee (WL) builds on the nameplate’s legacy as the most awarded SUV ever, bringing an all-new architecture, new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain, all-new exterior design, an all-new interior with world-class craftsmanship, and the first-ever three-row variant of the Grand Cherokee to the global full-size SUV market.
Continuing on its most awarded SUV status, The Car Connection has named the all-new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee the “Best SUV to Buy in 2022”. The car research website praised the vehicle’s increased interior capacity, next-generation safety features, premium amenities, and a new plug-in hybrid powertrain as standouts. Other notable attributes include even more agile and efficient powertrains, a spacious three-row version for the first time ever, plus an all-new luxurious interior that showcases modern, hand-crafted materials and the most available technology features in its class.
“The Jeep Grand Cherokee made its name on off-road ability,” said Marty Padgett, Editorial Director, Internet Brands Automotive. “In this generation, it’s evolved in all the right ways, with more luxury features, with more seats, and with more efficient powertrain choices.”
The all-new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee builds on its legacy as the most awarded SUV ever by introducing a new plug-in hybrid powertrain. The first-ever Grand Cherokee 4xe is set to deliver an estimated 25 miles of all-electric range, 57 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe), and a combined driving range of more than 440 miles (708 km). The 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, 2.0-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine, and TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission for maximum efficiency and capability.
A three-row variant of the Grand Cherokee debuted last year to meet the growing needs of Jeep customers who have asked for more space and functionality. Designed to maximize overall passenger comfort, the Grand Cherokee L delivers unsurpassed third-row capacity and increased cargo volume with seating for up to 7-passengers. The vehicle’s expanded wheelbase creates generous interior room and gives passengers expansive, class-leading legroom in the second row.
With premium styling and craftsmanship inside and out, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has more than 110 advanced safety and security features, including advanced driver-assist systems, 360-degree surround view, drowsy driver detection, and night vision cameras. Segment-leading technologies include a 10.25-inch front passenger screen, rear-seat monitoring camera system, rear-seat entertainment displays with built-in Amazon Fire TV, and an available premium 19-speaker, 950-watt McIntosh audio system.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee also comes equipped with the award-winning Uconnect 5 infotainment system. The advanced Uconnect 5 system, with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keeps passengers engaged and informed while drivers keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
