What’s under the hood of the 2022 Grand Cherokee?
The standard engine under the hood of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that supplies drivers with 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. While that’s plenty of power, you may be in search of more. That’s why Jeep offers an available 5.7L V8 HEMI that pumps out 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Brand new for the 2022 Grand Cherokee is Jeep’s 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain. By combining a turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine with two electric motors, the Grand Cherokee excites with 375 horsepower and a whopping 470 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s impressive power, its fuel economy numbers are just as astonishing. It achieves 56 miles per gallon, a total driving range of 440 miles, and an electric driving range of 25 miles. All three engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive system. However, three 4×4 drivetrains are available for the Grand Cherokee, depending on the trim level. The Quadra-Trac I system is available for the Laredo, Altitude, and Overland trims providing superior all-weather capabilities by automatically shifting into and out of four-wheel drive depending on road conditions. Quadra-Trac II is standard on all 4xe models and offers a two-speed transfer case. Lastly, Quadra-Drive II with an electronic limited-slip rear differential is standard on both the gas and hybrid Grand Cherokee’s.
2022 Grand Cherokee design features
As was previously mentioned, the 2022 Grand Cherokee received a complete redesign, entering its fifth generation. While boasting many modern features, the Grand Cherokee also shows off Jeep’s deep all-American roots. As always, the Grand Cherokee features Jeep’s iconic seven-slot grille. However, it has been widened and tilted slightly forward for the new generation, creating a more aggressive appearance. In combination with slim headlight housings and LED headlights, the front fascia of the new Grand Cherokee looks bold. However, a sense of elegance balances out the aggressiveness. This elegance is provided by small details like the elongated hood, tapered roofline, and intentional lines, curves, and edges. The interior has been refreshed as well, providing the perfect balance of modern technology and classic American craftsmanship. The center stack has been reconfigured to be more streamlined and intuitive. It features a standard 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen, while a 10.1-inch touchscreen is standard on higher trim levels. Some other standard interior features include a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, premium cloth upholstery, new slim HVAC vents, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more.
What are some new technology features for the Grand Cherokee?
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee is also the most technologically advanced one yet. This is primarily thanks to the all-new Uconnect 5 infotainment software. Uconnect 5 adds many more features, including wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Amazon Alexa virtual assistant, two-device Bluetooth connectivity, five user profiles, and more. Higher trim levels add TomTom navigation with voice activation and live traffic updates. In addition to the new infotainment software, the Grand Cherokee adds many new standard driver assists. These include but are not limited to adaptive cruise control with stop and go, active lane management, blindspot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, and full-speed forward collision avoidance with automatic emergency braking.
