Jeep® has recently announced a change in the ordering options to its U.S. dealers for its electrified 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe. This change will affect customers in the 15 states that fall under the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
A new quick order package with code 27L is available for Trailhawk 4xe and includes 18-inch x 8.0-inch Black painted aluminum wheels and a dual-pane sunroof for an MSRP of $1,295. However, these options will no longer be available as standalone options for the Trailhawk 4xe in CARB states. This means that customers who want these features will have to purchase the entire package.
The CARB states include California, Connecticut, Colorado, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
The Trailhawk 4xe is Jeep’s first electrified Grand Cherokee off-road vehicle, combining the brand’s legendary 4×4 capabilities with the efficiency and power of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). The vehicle features a 17-kWh battery pack that can provide up to 25 miles of electric-only range, making it ideal for short commutes and city driving.
The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe comes standard 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine that provides an additional 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The PHEV powertrain has a combined output of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
The 2023 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe boasts impressive off-road capabilities, thanks to a range of features designed to enhance its performance in rough terrain. These features include a sophisticated Quadra-Drive II 4×4 System with an electronic limited-slip rear differential and a two-speed transfer case, as well as a Selec-Terrain Traction Management System that allows drivers to choose between five different terrain modes.
The vehicle also comes equipped with a Quadra-Lift Air Suspension System that can raise its ride height by up to 4 inches for improved ground clearance, as well as skid plates to protect critical components from damage during off-road driving. Other off-road features include an Off-Road Pages system that provides real-time information about the vehicle’s pitch, roll, and altitude, and a Hill Descent Control system that helps maintain a steady speed on steep downhill grades.
