First-ever Grand Cherokee 4xe
The all-new 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe electrifies Grand Cherokee and aligns with the Jeep brand’s electrified mission of “Zero Emission Freedom.”

The 4xe PHEV technology includes:

  • 25 miles (40 km) of all-electric range and 56 MPGe
  • Quadra Trac II 4×4 system with two-speed transfer case and 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio
  • 47.4:1 crawl ratio
  • 6,000-lbs (2,720 kg) 4xe max towing capability
  • 375 hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque

The 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, a 2.0-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine, and a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Overall, the 4xe system delivers 375 horsepower (280 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. (637 N•m) of torque.

The fuel-efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine is part of Stellantis’s Global Medium Engine family. The high-tech, direct-injection engine uses a twin-scroll, low-inertia turbocharger mounted directly to the cylinder head. Efficiency is enhanced via the use of electric power steering and an electrically driven air-conditioning compressor, removing those loads from the engine.
