Here are the first images of the electrified 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe
Jeep just pulled off the wraps on the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) that will be the second 4xe model after Stellantis introduced the Wrangler variant last year. With the release of these photos, there was next to no additional information about the vehicle. Power, range, battery size, efficiency and just about every other detail is still in the works. With that said, we can infer some important information thanks to Jeep’s current Wrangler 4xe.
Here’s more of what Jeep says on its newest plug-in hybrid:
We know that the technology used in the Wrangler 4xe was designed to be capable off-road, rugged and fairly efficient. It may have the same combination of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, eight speed automatic transmission and 17.3-kWh battery as the current 4xe. We will know for sure in a few months’ time.
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is just the tip of the iceberg.
We already have it on good authority that Jeep is developing a Gladiator 4xe. Beyond that, insiders say that both Grand Cherokee and Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer will get the 4xe treatment. On top of that, the Compass and Renegade already have PHEV variants in Europe. Jeep has indirectly stated that all offerings will have an electrified version. As such, we should see the PHEV Compass and Renegade stateside soon.
On top of that, Stellantis has made some bold claims about their electrified future. According to the new auto conglomerate (Stellantis) is targeting over 70% of sales in Europe and over 40% in the United States to be low-emission vehicles (LEV) by 2030. They intend to invest €30 billion (over $35.5 billion) through 2025 in electrification and software. That money will go into new battery tech, several new giga-factories, production refinement and more.

In case you missed it, TFL Studios caught one of the 4xe test vehicles in the wild months ago.
