Jeep Teases New EV Model Ahead of 4xe Day
Jeep is poised to host its first-ever 4xe Day on September 8th (2022), and the automaker is teasing a few new EVs. Jeep is keeping its enthusiasts engaged in its electrification process by releasing a few short teasers before the event. The latest teaser highlights the Grand Cherokee 4xe and the Wrangler 4xe alongside a mysterious new model. The only detail visible on the new model is a seven-slot grille with illuminated surrounds–Jeep’s standard mode to introduce new electrified models.
While Jeep remains tightlipped in the lead-up to its 4xe Day event, the model teased by the brand does not look like the upcoming Jeepster EV that was spotted sans camouflage earlier this year (2022). It is evident from the teaser video that the upcoming model features a forward-facing camera as well as other squared-off slots complete with illuminated accents. The teaser also features a rear view of the brand’s mysterious SUV, which could easily be confused for a Wrangler 4xe at first glance. However, when taking a second look, the taillights are not only different, but the mysterious model also features a minimalist tailgate handle. For the time being, it remains unclear what Jeep has up its sleeve, but the teaser does look very reminiscent of an EV the automaker teased back in 2021.
The upcoming EV from Jeep will ride on the STLA large platform from parent company Stellantis and features a boxy exterior design. Ralph Gilles, an executive designer with Stellantis, referred to the coming Jeep model as a “very capable Jeep off-roading white space opportunity vehicle.” Questions remain, but plenty of answers await enthusiasts at Jeep’s jam-packed 4xe Day event.
2023 Jeep Lineup
Jeep hasn’t announced all the changes to its 2023 lineup yet, but buyers can expect a few improvements and changes on the 2023 Wrangler, Gladiator, Grand Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee 4xe. While the Gladiator expands its color palette to include High-Velocity Yellow (think Mountain Dew), the Wrangler takes things easier with the addition of a limited edition Reign shade. Both the 2023 Gladiator and Wrangler models feature an all-new Freedom Edition trim for the upcoming model year, adding a military-themed interior and exterior design cues, Oscar Mike badges on the rear swing gate, a steel front bumper, rock rails, and an American flag decal.
On the other hand, the Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee 4xe models are both brand new for the 2022 model year and feature very few changes for the coming year. There’s an exclusive Trailhawk trim on the 2023 Grand Cherokee 4xe, which adds performance-oriented features, but the rest of the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe lineup carries over from its introductory 2022 model year without any significant changes. As for the iconic Grand Cherokee, the Limited trim now features a nine-speaker Alpine audio system as an available option, while the Overland and Summit trims now have access to the highly-lauded 19-speaker McIntosh audio system. Uconnect 5 is also getting an upgrade on the Limited and Overland trims as it now includes navigation and features a standard 10.1-inch digital touchscreen.
