While we covered the all-new Grand Cherokee 4xe powertrain earlier today, the electrified 4xe models won’t be available at launch. Instead, the North American market will start to see the 4xe models arrive sometime during the first part of 2022. So for this article, we are going to focus on everything you need to know about the standard internal combustion engine (ICE) models.

Let’s start by looking at the trim levels and their standard equipment options…

I think the Limited trim level offers the best compromise between cost and features offered.
I love this new generation, but dislike the two tone color scheme. Fortunately you can have the roof with the same color as the body.

Per Jeep, as 75%ish of this market is 3row I'm somewhat surprised but I suppose they want to you bump up to GW.
