2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe at Bud’s Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep

The midsize SUV segment is full of great options, but only one has withstood the test of time and consistently provided drivers with the power, comfort, convenience, and all-terrain abilities that they need. That SUV is the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee was introduced in 1993 by being driven up a set of stairs and through a pane of glass, emphasizing the breakthrough that it created. And now, for the 2022 model year, Jeep has driven the Grand Cherokee through another pane of glass by giving it the electric power of their 4xe plug-in hybrid platform. Of course, you get unparalleled fuel economy with the hybrid power. But it also gives you far superior on-road performance and off-road capabilities. Continue reading below to learn more!

THE MOST CAPABLE GRAND CHEROKEE EVER

Water Sealed Battery Pack

 The battery of the Grand Cherokee 4xe features a special water-sealing, which allows drivers to power through up to 24 inches of water.

Quadra-Drive II 4×4 System

This available system features a two-speed low transfer case that uses sensors to determine if the tires are slipping. When it does, as much as 100% of available torque is directed to the axle with the most traction.

ELECTRIFY YOUR DRIVES

Innovation And Power

The Class-Exclusive PHEV powertrain is both pure innovation and pure power. While it definitely sounds different in nearly silent all-electric operation, the performance undeniably improves upon the legendary abilities of Grand Cherokee.

Up to six times faster than the Level I charger, the available Jeep® Brand Level II PHEV Home Charging Station lets you spend less time charging your PHEV and more time on the road. The easy-to-use quick-release mount features a lockable, weatherproof enclosure for either indoor or outdoor installation. Plus, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity lets you control charging anytime, anywhere via a mobile app and web portal. Its smart grid optimization helps reduce energy costs by charging at low-rate times. Available state and government programs incentivize owning PHEV vehicles, helping lower the cost of owning and driving your PHEV.

Hybrid Setup of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe

The Grand Cherokee 4xe is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, more commonly known as PHEV. The 4xe powertrain employs two electric motors powered by a 400-volt lithium-ion battery pack and a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four cylinder gas-powered engine. The engine-mounted electric motor is in place of the normal alternator while the second electric generator replaces the customary torque converter inside the transmission. This setup gives the Grand Cherokee the gas equivalent of 56 MPG, a total driving range of 470 miles, and 25 miles of pure electric driving. While these numbers are impressive, Jeep ensured that performance was not sacrificed, giving the Grand Cherokee 4xe 375 horsepower and a spectacular 470 lb-ft of immediate torque, making it easier than ever to crawl over rocks and merge on the highway!

How is the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe Charged?

With the name plug-in hybrid, you can assume that the Grand Cherokee 4xe gets a majority of its battery power from being plugged into an electric vehicle (EV) charger. With the purchase of a Grand Cherokee 4xe, drivers get a Level 1 EV charger that plugs into any wall outlet. This gives the Grand Cherokee 4xe a full charge in approximately twelve hours. Available for purchase is a Level 2 EV charger, which is a professionally installed charging station that cuts the full charge time down to roughly two hours. While a majority of the 4xe’s battery power comes from a charging cord, the system charges itself on the go with a process called brake regeneration. This is the process of taking the kinetic energy that is created by the friction that braking produces, converting it into electricity, and sending it back to the battery pack to increase or maintain the state of charge. Jeep also created the Max Regen feature to create a more aggressive brake regeneration calibration. Max Regen starts the regeneration process as soon as the gas pedal is released and the vehicle begins to slow. Electrical energy will continue to be created until the brake pedal is released and the gas pedal is pressed, maximizing the brake regeneration charge.

Does the Hybrid Power Affect the Grand Cherokee’s Off-Road Abilities?

Well, yes, the hybrid power certainly does affect the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s off-roading ability. But only for the better! If you spend time on rugged trails, then you probably know that torque is the main ingredient for staying in control. And, as was previously mentioned, the 4xe system provides a whole lot of torque! Additionally, all of the torque is available instantly, thanks to the transmission-mounted electric motor. This sends power to the wheels immediately, making it easier to keep the wheels moving over rocks, logs, and other obstacles you may come across on the trails. You may be wondering if 4xe stands for anything, which it does. The name comes from a conjunction of the phrases four-by-four and electric, hence, four-by-electric. This is because all Grand Cherokee 4xe models come equipped with legendary Jeep 4×4 systems. Standard for the Limited, Overland, and Summit, you’ll get Quadra-Trac II 4×4, which never stops monitoring road conditions and redistributes torque to the axle with the most traction through a single-speed transfer case. In addition to its impressive off-roading equipment, the Trailhawk trim level adds Quadra-Drive II 4×4 which uses a two-speed transfer case and an electronic limited-slip rear differential. This allows drivers to choose between 4-high and 4-low drive modes. It also allows the system to send up to 100% of available torque to a single rear wheel to counteract a loss of traction.
