This year, Jeep launched a first-of-its-kind vehicle. For 2022, Jeep now offers a hybrid version of its popular Grand Cherokee model, called the Grand Cherokee 4XE.

Below, we’ll outline some of the features of this new vehicle to help you decide if you want to make it your next vehicle purchase.

To start, let’s look at some of the performance specs for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4XE. Inside the Grand Cherokee 4XE, you’ll find a 270 horsepower engine that produces 295 lb-ft of torque. In addition to this, there’s a belt-driven 44 horsepower motor and a 134 horsepower electric motor. When you combine everything together, you can expect to get around 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This means that as long as there is enough power in the battery to contribute, you’ll get more power than the 5.7-liter V-8 engine.
Another important performance metric for hybrid vehicles is their fuel efficiency. With this Grand Cherokee, you’ll get around 26 miles of EV range. The EPA rating for this vehicle is 56 MPGe, which is more than you’ll get with the hybrid Jeep Wrangler, another popular Jeep option. Even once the battery depletes, you’ll still get around 23 mpg combined, which is pretty good for a vehicle of this size.
Interior Space and Comfort
Like other Grand Cherokees, the 4XE offers plenty of interior space and comfort amenities. Inside, you can comfortably seat up to 5 people, with three passengers in the back seat. If you want to compare the Grand Cherokee 4XE to other vehicles, there is 145 cubic feet of passenger volume and 70.8 cubic feet of cargo volume. In simple terms, there is plenty of space for you, your passengers, and a lot of cargo.
As for comfort and convenience features, some of the features you can get with the Grand Cherokee 4XE include:
- Dual-zone front air conditioning.

- Memory seat for the driver.
- Leather seats and steering wheel.
- 60-40 rear seat folding.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the perfect road trip vehicle for several reasons, like its fuel efficiency and cargo space. But another important factor is its entertainment features. Plenty of gadgets are on board to make drives of any distance more enjoyable. For starters, there are screens around the interior for both the driver and passengers to enjoy. In the center console is a touchscreen that runs Jeep’s Uconnect system, which easily connects with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon’s Alexa.
There’s also an additional 10-inch screen for passengers to access navigation information, camera views, and entertainment options. Finally, suppose you want to upgrade further. In that case, you can get a rear-seat entertainment system with built-in Amazon Fire TV, providing your backseat passengers with plenty of entertainment options.
Whether you plan on taking your Grand Cherokee 4XE offroading or not, you’ll want plenty of features to keep you safe while driving. Thankfully, the 4XE comes packed with the latest features that can not only help you in the event of an accident but help prevent you from getting into one in the first place.
