Inside the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4Xe

Two Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe SUV's off road

As Jeep makes monumental strides toward Zero Emissions to Freedom, the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe embodies the automaker’s transcendence perfectly. The 2023 model year is the most technologically advanced 4×4-capable Grand Cherokee from the legendary automaker to date. Additionally, the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe delivers 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe).  

For the 2023 model year, Jeep builds on a historic SUV with the all-new 4xe architecture, plug-in hybrid powertrain, new exterior design, refined interior, and first-to-market technologies. Not only does the Grand Cherokee 4xe change the future of the full-size segment, but the SUV joins the likes of the Grand Cherokee and three-row Grand Cherokee L on the road to expansion for the Grand Cherokee lineup. 

It’s as if Jeep could read the minds of earth preservers worldwide, as the Grand Cherokee 4xe provides the same experience as the Grand Cherokee with fewer emissions. Additionally, the Grand Cherokee 4xe is an icon that other automakers wish they could duplicate. The Grand Cherokee delivers legendary 4×4 capability, the full-size segments leading capacity, versatility, plus advanced safety features. Furthermore, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe E features Select modes: Hybrid, Electric, and eSave. So no matter what the journey entails, 4xe enthusiasts are limitless when customizing the hybrid powertrain best suited for the road ahead.    

Here’s a look at our favorite features from the all-new 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe. 

Highlights:

New for the 2023 model, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe offers the Trailhawk trim for 25 miles of all-electric Zero Emission Freedom and 56 MPGe plus the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk’s 4×4 capability. The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe easily conquers the Rubicon Trail through the all-electric power of Electric Mode. The Trailhawk trim features:  

  • Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system with two-speed transfer case 
  • Rear electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD)
  • Selec-Terrain traction management system
  • Selec-Speed Control
  • 10.9 inches of ground clearance
  • 24 inches of water-fording capability
  • 47.4:1 crawl ratio  
  • 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 MPGe
  • Blue tow hooks 
  • Blue-accented 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires
  • Glare-proof black-and-blue matte “Trailhawk” hood decal

Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe drivers can customize their trip to the powertrain that works best for the journey. So it doesn’t matter what the road ahead entails; whether it’s commuting, off-roading, or long-distance, the Grand Cherokee 4xe will prevail.

  • Hybrid: Gathers torque from the electric motor and gas engine. The Grand Cherokee 4xe’s powertrain optimizes battery and engine power to render the ultimate union of fuel efficiency and performance. 
  • Electric: Functions on zero-emission electric power only until the battery reaches the minimum charge or the drivers require more torque, which then engages the engine.  
  • eSave: The engine is the number one priority, so the Jeep SUV saves the battery charge for later use. Furthermore, the driver can alternate between Battery Save and Battery Charge. 

Over 110 advanced safety and security features are inside the Grand Cherokee 4xe. Standard safety features include: 

  • Full-Speed Collision Warning with Active Braking and Pedestrian/Cyclist Detection
  • Rear Cross Path detection
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go
  • Active Lane Management
  • LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Advanced Brake Assist
  • Blind-spot Monitoring
  • ParkView rear back-up camera
  • ParkSense rear park assist sensors with stop
  • Switch-activated electric park brake
  • Tire-pressure monitoring
  • Night Vision camera with pedestrian and animal detection
  • Intersection Collision Assist
  • Drowsy Driver Detection system
  • Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition
  • 360-degree Surround View camera system with front and rear washers
  • Active Driving Assist (L2) hands-on-wheel and eyes-on-road automated driving 

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Lineup consists of four trim levels: 4xe, Trailhawk 4xe, Overland 4xe, and Summit 4xe. In addition to the trim levels, the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s exterior colors include Baltic Grey, Bright White, Diamond Black, Ember, Hydro Blue, Midnight Sky, Rocky Mountain, Silver Zynith, and Velvet Red.

Jurassic Park and Gray Jeep Wrangle 4xe SUV

Jeep and Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World Team Up

Jurassic Park and Gray Jeep Wrangle 4xe SUV

Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World Domination looks to break the box office thanks to its partnership with America’s favorite automaker, Jeep. Jeep and Jurassic teamed up for a 30-second social media and 60-second TV campaign. In addition to the massive broadcast, the campaign featured a look at the commercial’s creation behind the lens. Moreover, Jeep placed experiential events on the Jeep Wave app for loyal enthusiasts to receive an early viewing of the new film in select North American cities. 

Let’s get back to the one-minute TV campaign title “Jeep X Jurassic,” directed by Mimi Cave. The sixty-second commercial features a Jeep Wrangler 4Xe enthusiast who discovers a baby Carnotaurus hatched in his yard. Throughout the video, the Wrangler 4Xe lover takes care of the Carnotaurus with daily walks and, of course, thrilling off-road adventures.  The short film comes to a close with the tagline “Charged for any Adventure,” which prescribes the environmentally friendly Jeep capable of handling anything, even a dangerous dinosaur. 

“We have entered into new SUV segments, we have increased our global production footprint and, with the rollout of our 4xe electrified portfolio that includes the Wrangler 4xe, the Jeep brand is developing the most capable and sustainable 4×4 vehicles in the world, satisfying the needs of our expanding global Jeep community.”

 – Jeep CEO, Christian Meunier 

The Jeep X Jurassic campaign will stretch beyond North America to the Asian Pacific, the Middle East, and Europe. However, Universal Picture and Jeep share a rich history. The most recent Jeep and Universal Pictures collaboration comes from the 2018 60-second ad for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Moreover, the Jurassic World Dominion movie will feature the best actors a Jeep enthusiast will ever see: the Wrangler, Gladiator, and vintage Grand Wagoneer

“Jurassic film series is known for its epic scope and thrilling action and Jurassic World Dominion is taking audiences on an adventure where no Jurassic film has gone before. Jeep has been driving Universal Pictures’ audiences on “unimaginable adventures, on-screen and off, since the first film in 1993, and it is thus thrilled to share the road with them again.”

– Universal Pictures’ President, Franchise Management, Brand Management & Global Partnerships, David K. O’Connor

The Jeep Performance Parts Headed to the 56th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari

Jeep SUVs desert

Once again, the creators of the legendary 4×4 capability will gather together at this year’s Easter Jeep Safari. Mopar, Jeep, and Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) enrolled the “A-Team” to create a custom line-up comprising 4×4 and 4xe concepts. The vehicles will premiere on the red rock of Moab, Utah, and thousands of 4×4 enthusiasts will gather from April 9-17th, 2022, for trail rides and technical off-roading.  

“Easter Jeep Safari is the perfect opportunity for the Jeep brand to push the limits of four-wheel-drive development and, most importantly, to stay connected with our customers. Moab is a rite of passage for many Jeep owners, and to own a Jeep is to truly understand the lifestyle – it’s what the Jeep brand is all about. Whether it’s a Jeep concept or the latest Jeep production vehicle, our customers have the chance to get up close and personal with our passion projects during this event. From a fully capable BEV off-roader to rugged and powerful terrain tacklers, every concept is a true reflection of what our customers tell us they want and give a taste of where the future of the Jeep brand and off-roading can go.”

-Senior Vice President and head of Jeep brand North America, Jim Morrison  

For the 56th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep branded and JPP concept vehicles feature a plethora of advanced powertrains. In addition, the Jeep Wrangler Magneto makes a miraculous return as the automaker’s first battery-electric vehicle (BEV). The Jeep Wrangler Magneto 2.0 is back and more powerful than ever, with four more Jeep 4xe concepts echoing Jeep’s sentiments of Zero Emission Freedom. Here’s a look into our personal favorite.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon SUV in the desert
Jeep® Bob Concept

The Jeep Bob Concept 

The Jeep Gladiator Rubicon is the beauty of when two worlds collide, and the Bob Concept embodies this vision perfectly. The Jeep Bob Concept is a child-like spin on the trend of “bobbing.” Bobbing (no relation to the apple game) is the long overhang of the pickup truck bed to make the pickup a more spirited off-roader. 

Spend some time with the Bob Concept, and its missing features pop right out, such as the four doors and B-Pillars. In addition to the open-air freedom, the Bob Concept sports a perforated hardtop, and a canvas top provides shelter from various elements and natural lighting to seep through.  

The exterior shimmers in a multi-finish paint scheme that incorporates mixed gloss and matte finish that screams the best of both worlds. Step inside Jeep Bob and look down. The bed floor is brightly lined with custom trimmed seats adding some heat to the cabin. Additionally, a carbon hood generates a finer airflow to the engine. 

Of course, the Jeep Bob Concept’s outside matches the inside, starting with Jeep’s award-winning, turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. For those powerful torque loads the EcoDiesel V6 pairs with the TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission. The V6 engine and transmission pair together to calibrate low RPM shifts to easily maneuver through more turbulent grounds. Moreover, the Bob Concept’s equipped with a Mopar cold-air intake that boosts torque and enhances fuel economy. 

“Teaming up with the Jeep brand, there is no better place than the annual Easter Jeep Safari to show off our latest production and custom innovations to true off-road enthusiasts. Unlike any other aftermarket offerings, our factory-tested and factory-backed Jeep Performance Parts are specifically designed and engineered to face the toughest trails in the world.”

Jeep Will Premiere a Brand New Wrangler Magneto Concept

Jeep Wrangler 4x4 SUV in desert

Jeep and Mopar come together again for another superstar concept for the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Typically, Jeep and Mopar would release a compilation of concept images leading up to the grand reveal at the red rock event. 

This year Jeep and Mopar went with a different approach. The dynamic duo has recently released an image of the concept vehicle every couple of days. The cautionary images work to build anticipation for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. 

The most recent sketch comes from Jeep and reveals a sneak peek at the internet-breaking: Jeep Wrangler Magneto. Additionally, the Jeep appears painted in Surf Blue (B5 Blue). The “Magneto” reads diagonally along the side of the hood, and next to that, the number “2.0.” The 2.0 signifies the second iteration of the Magneto concept. 

The original Magneto concept was a fully battery-electric vehicle (BEV). The electric concept was a spirited ninja with unparalleled energy for rock climbing. The innovative team of Jeep, composed of engineers and designers, cultivated a vehicle with impeccable 4×4 capabilities, all while emitting zero emissions. As a result, last year’s Magneto provided a whole new perspective on efficiency, sustainability, and performance both on and off-road. 

Inspiration for the Magneto originates from the two-door Wrangler Rubicon. Supporting the custom compact is a custom axial flux electric motor that handles up to 6,000 rpm. Additionally, connected to a 6-speed manual transmission was an e-motor that created a manual-electric powertrain. Lastly, paired to the manual-electric powertrain was a clutch that operated similar to pairing with an internal combustion engine (ICE). 

Jeep Wrangler Magneto Concept Engine in desert

The compact e-motor is similar to the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, and the e-motor delivered 273 lb-ft of torque and 285 horsepower. The electrified powertrain propelled the Magneto from 0 to 60 in less than 7 seconds. 

Last year’s Magneto revealed an electrifying Bright White color and Surf Blue accents. In addition, the Magneto sported a heavy-duty performance hood, custom decal, commanding full-width forward lighting, and a redesigned rear gate. The concept Jeep sports custom Royal Blue and Black leather seats plus Sapphire-colored straps. 

Jeep equipped the concept vehicle with Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) to solidify the Magneto’s captivating appearance. The JPP includes a 2-inch lift kit, 17-inch “Lights Out” Black metallic wheels wrapped in 35-inch mud-terrain tires. The JPP also contained a custom roll cage, Mopar Rock Rails, steel bumpers that include a WARN winch, and a steel belly pan for heightened off-road capabilities. 

Although the images above are of last year’s Magneto concept, we have a lot to look forward to at this year’s red rock auto show. This year’s Wrangler concept will serve as a guide to Jeep’s electrified future.

A Goody Bag Full of Jeep Concepts for the 56th Annual Easter Jeep Safari

Stellantis

It’s that time of year again where Jeep vehicles come together and collectively drop jaws. Jeep is on its way to Moab, Utah, for its 56th annual Easter Jeep Safari (April 9th-17th, 2022). Hundreds of thousands of Jeep devotees will come together for the world’s largest off-road convention. The Jeep Safari’s host is the Moab’s Red Rock 4-Wheelers club. 

Of course, Jeep never disappoints but the automaker and Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) is hard at work. The automaker and JPP work vigorously to create several memorable Jeep concept vehicles that turn an excellent off-roader into a phenomenal off-roader. The only obstacle in the way of a successful Safari is its renowned 4×4 capability

Sneak previews of the Easter Jeep Safari lineup reveal the fire lineup headed to Utah. The Jeep and JPP sketches revealed a peek at two new concept vehicles. One of the concept vehicles included an electrified Jeep 4xe SUV. The 4xe SUV is on the minds and hearts of many Jeep enthusiasts, and it’s easy to see why since the SUV clobbers the most rugged terrains. Furthermore, the new 4xe gives Jeep another leg to stand on as the automaker builds on the vision of Zero Emission Freedom. 

The History of the Easter Jeep Safari 

The Moab Chamber of Commerce coordinated the first Jeep convention in 1967. The idea behind the gathering was to attract more visitors to the Moab area. Chamber leaders actively led the tour, and participants hiked through the Behind the Rocks Trail, the only trail available at the time. The first event was free, and participants received free ice cream delivered by airplanes. 

By 1982, the convention grew, and so did the rules and regulations. In addition, the event required new permits and documentation, so Moab passed the responsibilities to Red Rock 4 Wheelers. As a result, Red Rock successfully expanded beyond the Behind the Rocks Trail and extended the meeting days. 

Since Red Rock 4 Wheelers took over, the event caters to 1,000 people worldwide. What was once a one-day event is now an eleven-day event with over 125 trail options and 2000 vehicles. Even though the Easter Jeep Safari has evolved tremendously since 1967, Jeep enthusiasts rally together for “Big Saturday.” On “Big Saturday,” the vehicles line up on Main Street to pay homage to the Moab Chamber of Commerce.

The 2022 Women’s World of the Year Awards Choose the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

Even DJ Khaled is sick of Jeep, as the automaker wins “Another One.” This time the Jeep Wrangler 4xe recieved its flowers from the 2022 Women’s World Car of the Year Awards. A panel of 56 women from 40 different countries chose the Wrangler 4xe as the Best 4×4.   

Vehicles in the World Car of the Year competition received an evaluation based on its safety, comfort, handling, design, technology, efficiency, environmental impact, and value. The award comes from the twelfth year of the Women’s World Car of the Year, and the Wrangler 4xe received critical acclaim for its dedication to sustainability. 

“With the Wrangler 4xe, the Jeep brand has taken a giant step forward in many ways, but the most important is its commitment to a more sustainable environment. It is very much appreciated that one of the true SUVs left on the market has opted for hybridisation. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe’s commitment to the environment is of decisive value for the Women’s World Car of the Year.”

 – Marta Garcia, Executive President of Women’s World Car of the Year Awards 

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe renders 21 miles of zero-emission and electric-only propulsion, making for a friendly guiltless commute without the worries of adequate mileage. Furthermore, the Wrangler 4xe is eco-friendly without compromising Jeep’s signature off-road frills. Additionally, the Wrangler 4xe delivers an almost soundless cabin even when off-roading. That tranquil cabin mixed with the open-air freedom creates a sustainable evolution that remains synonymous with everything the Jeep Wrangler stands for. 

The Wrangler hybrid provides the most sophisticated powertrain developed thus far. The Wrangler 4xe maximizes efficiency and holds an impeccable EPA rating of 49 miles per gallon-equivalent (MPGe). In addition, the hybrid Jeep provides a compelling 375 horsepower for a resounding performance,  quality off-road capability, and a monumental tread forward into an all-electric future.  

“We are delighted that the WWCOTY jurors recognized the great strides that the Jeep brand is making toward electrification of its vehicles around the world, in pursuit of its vision of Zero Emission Freedom. This Women’s World Car award is further confirmation that electrification enhances the core capabilities of our Jeep vehicles. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a clear example that you can have the best of both worlds: legendary Jeep capability and open-air fun combined with an electrified, eco-friendly package that allows you to enjoy nature in almost absolute silence.”

The Best Features of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe

Jeep

Jeep continues to embark on the path less traveled. A road that other automakers explicitly divert from. ‘Go Anywhere, Do Anything’ is so much more than a motto; it is Jeep’s vigorous effort to bridge the gap between practicality and electric efficiency. 

The 2022 Wrangler embraces a new powertrain known as the 4xe (4-by-e). The Wrangler 4xe is everything the Wrangler stands for with increased power, economy, and borrowed eco credentials from the Toyota Prius. 

Once the Wrangler 4xe launched, Jeep unveiled a new electrifying plan for its lineup. As a result, vehicles like the Renegade, Cherokee, and Compass will boast a new powertrain by 2025. But, until that time, there’s nothing wrong with breeding a little familiarity with the Wrangler 4xe; after all, it is the most rugged approach to a rechargeable adventure. 

Capability and Economy 

The Wrangler 4xe is a nice-sized compact SUV, tottering between small and medium with a weight that leaves anyone saying, “is it really that heavy!?” The Wrangler carries 4000-4200 lbs of curb weight for the 2-liter gas engine. But the Rubicon V8 isn’t shy about its size, with a weight of 5100 lbs. The 4xe isn’t too far behind the V8 in poundage as the 2.0-liter turbocharged 270 horsepower engine with 295 lb-ft of torque adds 800 lbs because of the hybrid gear. 

An 8-speed automatic and power invigorate all four wheels while vented discs enforce the brakes. Combining electric power with the internal combustion engine yields 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, which is exceptional since the Rubicon 392 holds a 6.4-liter engine that generates 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.  

Customized Luxury 

Aside from the powertrain, there are a ridiculous amount of trims and options to sift through. For example, the Wrangler 4xe is available as a Sahara, Rubicon, even High-Altitude. The base model (Sahara) features 20-inch wheels, an 8.4-inch display, and leather seats, to name a few. Customizing the Wrangler’s isn’t impossible because there is a superabundance of add-ons, such as the American flag sticker for the hood. The High Altitude model features blind spot cross path detection, remote keyless entry, dark interior accents, a rear-window wiper, and a 3-piece hardtop just for upgrading.  

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a tremendous step forward for users reluctant of zero emissions.

Here’s Why Three Comes Before Two with the Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Jeep

When John Heywood said, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day,’ the same sentiments echoed throughout the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Jeep’s design, and engineering team persevered through a handful of tremendous obstacles. When Jeep initiated the redesign of the exemplary Jeep Grand Cherokee, the expansion also added three-row seating.

Three-row seating is a vital commodity in today’s market. So eruptive that Jeep initiated the release of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L before the classic two-row Grand Cherokee. The market required a three-row segment from the automaker, and boy did they understand the assignment. 

These were abrupt modifications, and Jeep responded promptly with great reason. 

“Seventy-five percent of the market is made up of three-row SUVs. If we wanted to grow our market, we had to compete with a three-row vehicle too.” -Jeep Chief Engineer Tom Seel. 

In addition, both the Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L support the same forward doors, and both Grand Cherokee variants carry the same B-pillar forward. The team process began with the two-door design before deliberation trickled down to prioritizing the three-row. The path wasn’t easy, and that frequently goes overlooked simply because of body and component similarities. 

Lead designer Mark Allen and his team prepared both SUVs simultaneously. The Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L come from the same plant. The Jeep SUVs sheet metal also needed the same principal locating points on the assembly line. To sum up, locating points, the robot can just lift the pieces for each SUV without building out a second line. 

Allen’s biggest challenge was to make a three-row the same size as the two-row. Today it’s easy to see no obstacle is too significant for the engineers at Jeep to handle. However, Seel emphasized the team’s diligence because both SUVs are often confused with one another. 

Jeep didn’t want the three-row to resemble its larger cousin, the Grand Wagoneer. So the most distinctive features are that the Grand Cherokee holds a faster back while the Grand Cherokee L includes a squared-off third row for that vital headspace. 

The 2022 Grand Cherokee measures 11.4 inches shorter than the Grand Cherokee L, and the wheelbase is also five inches shorter. 

“It was a success in the end, but there were a lot of us in the design studio muttering, ‘How are we going to do this?’” -Allen 

The timing was tight, and even the clay model didn’t receive much molding, which is a sure-fire recipe for slowing down the team. Fortunately, Jeep knows that delivering SUVs that grants enthusiast the freedom to go anywhere is an intense process from start to finish. As a result, the engineers can catch their breath and continue to make tremendous strides now that both vehicles have launched.

Jeep Earns a Spot on Wards 10 Best User Experience List

Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Wards editors declared the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L worthy of praise and placed it on the 2021 Wards 10 Best User Experience List. But, of course, the Grand Cherokee L is no stranger to accolades and yet a brand new vehicle. 

The distinction comes in no small part to the sports utility vehicle’s fantastic (and highly-lauded) Uconnect 5 infotainment system. The connectivity provides enriching content with vaster customization. This is the most sophisticated UConnect system by far. 

“Uconnect 5 is designed to be the most advanced in-car technology we have ever produced, and we’re honored that Wards has selected the system for two spots on their 10 Best User Experience list. We are dedicated to providing all occupants with greater connectivity, easy-to-use content and innovative features to seamlessly elevate the automobile to a third living space.”- Head of Software Business and Product Management, Mamatha Chamarthi.
