Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 2022 revealed

Any jeep must demonstrate its off-road capabilities which is how i found myself at an acute angle on the side of a rock wall relying on its low-range gearing to slowly pull me forward with one will a few feet in the air the goal was to demonstrate that the new 2022 jeep grand cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid is just as capable as its gas-only counterparts at doing

Jeep things with an electric motor in the course of fording two feet of water i scraped the protective chassis under plate on a rock while we didn’t pull anything the 4xc has a 6000 pound towing capacity take this as a mission achieved the 4xe adds a plug-in hybrid option to jeep’s core suvs v6 and v8 powertrains the grand cherokee 4xe will be available this

Spring following the wrangler 4xe which debuted last year the plug-in grand cherokee and wrangler have nearly identical powertrains with a turbocharged 2 0-liter four-cylinder engine and an unnamed electric motor inserted between the engine and the eight-speed automatic transmission a 17 0 zero kilowatt-hour battery pack installed under the floor and protected

By skid plates powers the motor the system produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque which is greater than the five 7 liter v8s 357 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque as well as higher fuel economy epa rated 23 mpg in gas hybrid mode than the smaller less powerful three 6-liter v6 at 21 mpg under ideal conditions the plug-in grand cherokee 4xe

Has an epa-rated electric range of 25 miles that’s four miles more than the wrangler plug-in hybrid which is less aerodynamic the grand cherokee 4xe gets 56 mpge when driven as an electric car according to the epa mpge stands for miles per gallon equivalent which is the distance a vehicle can travel on electric power using the energy in one gallon of gasoline

The standard grand cherokee features and fittings are enhanced by several novel alternatives behind the wheel when you turn on the jeep the term hybrid displays in the instrument cluster indicating that the vehicle’s default mode is a gas electric hybrid electric and e-save buttons are located above the driver’s left knee the first uses only battery power to push

The suv while the second saves battery energy for later use potentially for silent off-roading as jeep speculated in electric mode i began my journey around austin texas we achieved exactly the epa rating of 25 miles after a mix of city suburban and a short stretch of highway driving experienced ev drivers may be surprised to discover the jeep going up and down

Through its gears as it gains and loses speed as the electric motor drives the car through an eight-speed automatic transmission regenerative braking is increased by pressing the max reagan button in the middle of the dash it allows for near one pedal driving down to eight or ten miles per hour but drivers must brake well below that speed to bring the plug-in jeep

To a complete stop during my test the electric with max reagan combination provided a smooth quiet ride with enough acceleration to keep up with traffic for emergency situations drivers who stomp the accelerator past a visible detent that maintains it in electric mode will switch on the engine to get all 375 hp the powertrain may become bumpy when operating in

Hybrid mode where the 4xc will travel the majority of its miles the shifts between electric power gasoline power and regenerative braking on my 4xe were jarring it’s the cost of employing a one motor system with a standard automatic transmission as opposed to the two motor systems used by toyota and some fords which provide smoother and endlessly variable power

Delivery jeep software will most certainly be updated in the future to address these issues but it’s not as smooth as a traditional torque converter automatic alone over the previous two years the five-seat grand cherokee and the new longer seven-seat grand cherokee l have been completely overhauled the grand cherokee’s off-road abilities are well known but the

Addition of a three-row model finally puts it in the sweet spot among mid-size suv family haulers the grand cherokee is a tremendous business engine in north america alone over 7 million have been sold in 30 years and stellantis alone sold over a quarter million last year because of the company’s continued success it decided to build a second assembly factory

Near its existing line to produce more grand cherokees so so so so do you
