2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe PHEV is coming to Canada
Jeep entered the electrically assisted vehicle market with the new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe PHEV. What advanced technology and features come with this new Hybrid Grand Cherokee?
The drivetrain of the Grand Cherokee 4xe is a combination of the 2.0L turbocharged gasoline engine and two electric motors. One of the electric motors is in place of the conventional alternator. The other electric motor replaces the torque converter in the transmission. The transmission used is the 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic system. The 400-volt, 17kWh traction battery pack is fitted under the floor. The Integrated Dual Charging Module, DC to DC converter, and Power Inverter Module is also fitted under the floor.
You can select three drive modes, namely Hybrid, Electric and eSave. In the eSave mode, the Jeep runs on gas only, saving the electricity stored in the battery pack for later. The Grand Cherokee will automatically operate as a hybrid when the battery pack nears depletion. The plug-in hybrid 4xe produces 370 hp and 470 lb-ft torque. The Electric-only driving distance is 25 miles. The combined fuel economy rating is 56mpg in Hybrid mode.
The Grand Cherokee 4xe is shorter and slimmer than its predecessor. This new design and the unique rear glass give the 4xe a sportier look. Styling was kept simple with a tiny blue "e" badge on the charging port cover and a 4xe logo on the left side of the tailgate.
