This spring, the Jeep brand is launching the first-ever electrified Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, which will deliver 56 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) and 25 miles of all-electric range. The Easter Jeep Safari gives the Jeep brand and Jeep design team the opportunity to take production vehicles like the Grand Cherokee 4xe to the next level.
Stealthy performance and quiet confidence are evident in this Overlanding-inspired concept. The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Trailhawk concept pairs legendary Jeep 4×4 capability with electrified freedom to deliver ultimate fuel efficiency and driving range.
The most 4×4-capable and sustainable Grand Cherokee ever, the new Trailhawk 4xe, has conquered the Rubicon Trail in full-electric operation, and now it’s ready to tackle all that Moab has to offer. It features a new class-exclusive sway-bar disconnect, allowing for improved articulation and traction over rocks and rough terrain.
Like the new production Grand Cherokee 4xe, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk PHEV concept is powered by 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. It’s also equipped with Jeep’s class-exclusive Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension to optimize ride performance, while the class-exclusive sway-bar disconnect delivers improved articulation and traction over rocks and rough terrain.
The overall design inspiration behind the Grand Cherokee 4xe Trailhawk concept builds on the passion of Overlanding Jeep SUV and pickup truck owners who dare to go off the grid and explore the unknown.
The concept boasts a custom Industrial Blue exterior, along with signature 4xe Lagoon Blue tow hooks and glare-proof Black-and-Blue matte Trailhawk hood decal. Adding to its adventuresome appearance is a custom roof rack with integrated tie-downs, black painted Rhino Liner roof for added durability, custom fog light bezels with quad LED projector fog lamps, and custom vinyl side graphics for protection against debris. Mopar rock rails add further protection against nature’s less-forgiving elements.
The interior incorporates custom saddle-colored upholstered seats with “Rodney” houndstooth inserts. The seats also feature the signature 4xe Trailhawk badge and Surf Blue stitching.
The off-roading rig also comes equipped with custom 20-inch painted Neutral Gray metallic matte wheels with 33-inch BFG mud-terrain tires. Trimmed wheel wells with custom widened flares are the perfect complement to the meatier wheel and tire combo.
