2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Revered for its off-road prowess, the iconic Jeep Grand Cherokee is all-new for the 2022 model year. Bolstered by on- and off-road refinement that Jeep’s perfected over the years, the 2022 Grand Cherokee doesn’t shy away from luxury appointments and corresponding features. For the first time in its history, the model is offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, what the automaker calls 4xe.
5.7-L HEMI V8
Avail. Engine Type
Like the previous generation Grand Cherokee model, this latest iteration is powered by a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine or an optional 5.7-liter HEMI V8 as well. 2022 marks the first time the Jeep Grand Cherokee is available with a hybrid powertrain thanks to the 4xe trim. While rear-wheel drive is standard on the Grand Cherokee, those equipped with a V8 or hybrid powertrain come standard with an all-wheel drive system instead. Buyers have the following trims to choose from, ranging from entry-level to top-tier luxury: Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, Summit Reserve, 4xe, Limited 4xe, Trailhawk 4xe, Overland 4xe, Summit 4xe, and Summit Reserve 4xe. The Trailhawk trim stands out on its own thanks to robust off-road equipment that makes this SUV even more powerful while off the grid. Buyers can count on an adjustable air suspension with up to 11.3 inches of ground clearance, as well as a disconnecting sway bar that’s perfect for tackling rough terrain thanks to its improved wheel articulation.
What’s New for 2022?
Jeep launches a new generation of the Grand Cherokee for the 2022 model year. The world’s best-selling SUV sheds its old bones and goes for a ride on new architecture, as well as a new powertrain in the form of the 4xe plug-in hybrid propulsion system. Some of the Grand Cherokee’s extras include the Entertainment Group Package which adds a nine-speaker Alpine stereo, as well as a larger 10.1-inch infotainment display. Buyers can also opt for the Lux Tech Group II Package which comes with a wireless phone charger, ventilated front seats, perforated leather upholstery, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a digital rearview mirror, front and rear parking sensors, a power-adjustable steering column, and collision avoidance technology.
On the outside, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been reimagined and updated for the model year. Buyers can now have a tapered roof that enhances the model’s aerodynamics without reducing the vehicle’s overall room. Additionally, Jeep also redesigned the front fascia to include modern LED lighting, as well as on the interior to further amplify the SUV’s luxurious feel. Buyers can choose from the following exterior shades: Hydro Blue, Midnight Sky, Velvet Red Pearl Coat, Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat, and many more. Those interested in the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee can enjoy standard features such as automatic on/off headlights, premium fog lamps, deep tint sunscreen glass to keep the cabin cool, heated outside mirrors, a tinted and acoustic windshield to reduce glare and noise while cruising, black claddings, and ParkSense rear park assist with stop. LED fog lamps are standard on the Altitude and Summit trims. High-tier trims offer high-tier features such as bi-xenon HID headlamps, platinum side roof rails, a rain-sensitive windshield wiper, tow hooks, a roof rack, rock rails, a power liftgate, and even an optional dual-pane panoramic sunroof. Select trims offer individual touches, such as the “Trail Rated” badge on the appropriate trims, or a blacked-out hood decal.
Modernization is the name of the game for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Gone are the days of a dated interior, thanks to incredible touches such as quilted leather upholstery, high-tech digital displays, open-pore wood trim and more. The 2022 Grand Cherokee is a classic two-row SUV, but Jeep makes its first splash into the three-row SUV segment with the 2022 Grand Cherokee L variant. There’s also a 60/40 split-fold rear seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, luxury floor mats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Cloth upholstery is standard on the Laredo trim, with more supple and luxurious materials available on the rest of the lineup. Other optional features include heated and ventilated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a heated steering wheel. Select trims also allow butters to add their own personal touches with the availability of red seat belts and other wood and leather accents.
When it comes to infotainment, the 2022 Grand Cherokee is the SUV to beat thanks to its standard 8.4-inch (or optional 10.1-inch) touchscreen display. Buyers can count on Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto connectivity, as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio access, optional in-dash Navigation services, and weather updates as well. High-tier trims, such as the Summit and Summit Reserve, come standard with a digital gauge cluster, a 10.1-inch head-up display, and an additional 10.3-inch touchscreen that’s reserved for the front-seat passenger and features Amazon Fire TV capabilities as well. A six-speaker stereo system is standard on the Laredo and Limited trims, but buyers can also upgrade to the nine-speaker Alpine Audio setup that’s standard on higher-tier trims, or opt for the impressive 19-speaker McIntosh sound system that’s made to please audiophiles.
