The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee debuts with new hybrid version | Digital Trends Spanish

Last January, Jeep showed off its first Grand Cherokee L, a three-row extended base version of its popular midsize SUV, but reserved the reveal of the traditional two-row version for the fall, a highly unusual strategy. that kept the public on their toes. Today Jeep rewards our patience with the official reveal of the fifth generation of the Jeep grand cherokee, a sophisticated and beautiful SUV that will likely meet most of the expectations placed on it. But will he be able to exceed them?


Despite sharing its name, basic architecture and powertrains with its extended base sister, the new Grand Cherokee is a vehicle with a much sleeker and more cohesive appearance. All the aesthetic magic occurs in the rear quarters where visual continuity is interrupted by the waistline of the vehicle and not by the roof line as occurs in the extended model, giving it a more sophisticated appearance that is reminiscent of a Range Rover without imitating it, something that It is never a bad idea when it comes to an SUV.

The new greenhouse allows for a more assertive use of color combinations, which look particularly good on the vehicle as can be seen in some of the promotional images, especially those of the Trailhawk 4xe variant, which looks particularly stylish with white bodywork and black roof.

The rest of the design with its clean sides with a single character line, its front with the new interpretation of the Jeep seven-slot grille, and its new minimalist rear end make for a sleek and powerful-looking truck.


As with the Grand Cherokee L, the 2022 Grand Cherokee’s engine menu has three options.

On the conventional side we get as standard the proven and reliable Pentastar V6 inherited from the Chrysler days, 3.6 liters of displacement generating 293 horsepower, and 260 pound-feet of torque. Jeep makes available to those who need more power an optional 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to the same eight-speed automatic transmission.

Jeep also offers a hybrid powertrain that adds the 4xe designation to vehicles equipped with it. It is composed of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine combined with two electric motors / alternators powered by a 400-volt 17 kWh battery. One of the electric motors replaces the alternator while the other, mounted on the transmission, replaces the torque converter. The maximum power of the 4xe system is 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Jeep estimates an electric range of 25 miles (40 km), a consumption of 57 miles per electrical equivalent to a gallon of gasoline (MPGe) and a total range of 440 miles (708 km) per tank of gasoline.

Off-road capability

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee can be purchased with one of three 4 × 4 systems: Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II, the latter with an electronic limited-slip differential. All three are equipped with an active transfer case that improves traction by providing better grip.

The exclusive Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension now features semi-active electronic damping, and provides up to 11.3 inches of ground clearance and 24 inches (61 cm) of wading ability, which Jeep reminds us of are class-leading figures. The system automatically adjusts the shock absorber based on road conditions improving comfort, stability and handling, or it can be controlled manually from the center console, and has five different height settings for optimal driving performance.

The Selec-Terrain traction management system, which depending on the type of terrain indicated by the driver is capable of electronically coordinating the distribution of 4 × 4 torque, brakes, handling, steering column, suspension systems, throttle, transmission mode change, transfer case, traction control, stability control, ABS and steering wheel feel. Selec-Terrain has five driving modes depending on the terrain: Auto, Sport, Rock (rock), Snow (snow), Mud / Sand (mud / sand).

Another new feature on the 2022 Grand Cherokee is the front axle disconnect capability. If the vehicle detects that road conditions do not require all-wheel drive, the front axle disconnect automatically engages the rear wheel drive, improving fuel economy. Four-wheel drive is automatically reactivated as soon as the vehicle detects that it is necessary.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 lb (3,265 kg) with the 5.7-liter V-8 engine, a class leading figure.


Unlike its American competitors, Stelantis does not have a traditional channel like Lincoln and Cadillac, where to distribute luxury SUVs in North America, so Jeep is forced to take this role. Just look inside the Summit variant of the Grand Cherokee with the Summit Reserve package, featuring Palermo leather upholstery, massage front seats, ventilated front and rear seats, open-pore wood trim, to realize that the Cadillac XT6 and Lincoln Aviator have a formidable rival in this new truck, which when offered with a five-seat option can offer savings that are impossible to its rivals.

The interior is similar to the Grand Cherokee L we met in January, featuring a standard 10.1-inch touchscreen that operates the Uconnect 5 infotainment system, one of the best on the market. The driver is confronted by a configurable digital instrument cluster, also standard across the line, of 10.25 inches. Beneath the touch screen is a new metal rotary gear selector and to its sides are the selectors for the various terrain modes that on the Overland and Summit trims, includes adjustable air suspension controls to regulate ride height.

Behind those controls are the cup holders and a storage area with an optional wireless charging pad capable of charging two devices at once. The cabin of the new Grand Cherokee has 6 USB-A and C ports throughout the cabin accentuating its technological character, which finds its highlight in an interactive screen that faces the 10.25-inch front passenger with access to entertainment functions and navigation, which helps act as co-pilot, and a new high-definition entertainment system with Amazon Fire TV and built-in Alexa functionality for the rear passengers.

Also among the inflight entertainment options for the 2022 Grand Cherokee is a new 19-speaker McIntosh audio system, including a 10-inch subwoofer, 950 watts of power and a 17-channel amplifier, which cannot be found anywhere else. vehicle from any other manufacturer.


The new Grand Cherokee has a host of high-tech safety features including Active Driver Assist, Level 2 semi-autonomous driving system, hands on the wheel, Intersection Collision Assist, standard on the trim. Summit, which senses traffic coming from the left and right of the vehicle when approaching an intersection and will provide audible and visual warnings and activate the Grand Cherokee brakes.

Camera-based safety features include Jeep’s first digital rearview camera system that uses the rearview mirror to display real-time rear-facing camera images available from Limited trim and up. An optional night vision camera system on the Overland and Summit models, and a 360-degree surround vision camera system is available on the Limited and Overland models, and is standard on the Summit model.


The fifth generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee debuts with six trims: Laredo, Limited, Overland, Trailhawk with the highest off-road capability, and the luxurious Summit and Summit Reserve.

All models are fitted as standard by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, while the 5.7-liter V-8 is offered as an option for the Overland and Summit Reserve variants, and the 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain is available in Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit and Summit Reserve versions.
