How is the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe powered?
As with all hybrid vehicles, Jeep’s 4xe platform features a gas-powered engine, electric motors, and a battery pack. Specific to the Grand Cherokee 4xe, you’ll find a 2.0L turbocharged I-4 engine, an engine-mounted electric generator, a transmission-mounted generator, and a 400-volt lithium-ion battery pack. If you’re interested in the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s fuel economy, we’re happy to announce that it gets 56 MPG, a total driving range of up to 440 miles, and 25 miles of all-electric driving. If you’re more curious about the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s power, you’ll be satisfied by 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of instantly available torque.
How do I charge the Grand Cherokee 4xe?
The Grand Cherokee 4xe is a plug-in hybrid. Therefore, it is charged with an electric vehicle charging cable. The purchase of a Grand Cherokee 4xe gets you a 140-watt Level 1 EV charger that fully charges the Grand Cherokee in roughly twelve hours. However, a 240-watt Level 2 EV charging station is available for purchase, cutting the charging time down to just two hours. If you plan on taking your Grand Cherokee 4xe to the trails, you can power up the battery using Jeep’s solar-powered charging stations at all Jeep Badge of Honor trailheads. The Wrangler 4xe also charges itself on the go using brake regeneration. When the brakes are applied, the brake regen system converts some kinetic energy from the brakes that would otherwise be used to create heat into electric energy and sends it back to the battery pack. The Grand Cherokee 4xe’s Max Regen feature uses a more assertive regen process by starting as soon as the driver lets off the gas pedal and sending energy back until the gas pedal is pressed again.
Can I control the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s battery usage?
Yes! Jeep wanted to allow drivers to stay in command of the 4xe system’s battery usage. That’s why Jeep created the E-Selec system. Three driving modes, Hybrid, Electric, and E-Save, can be selected at the push of a button found on the dashboard to the left side of the steering wheel. The system defaults to hybrid and uses electric power while coasting or decelerating, and when more power is requested, the gas engine will kick on. E-Save mode will automatically turn on when the EV battery becomes depleted but can also be selected by the driver. This disables the electric motors, operating solely on gas power. However, the battery will continue to recharge through regenerative braking even while it is disabled. Lastly, drivers can switch on Electric mode as long as the battery has at least 1% of charge remaining. Electric mode disengages the gas engine, operating with zero tailpipe emissions and a near-silent drive.
