Jeep plans to introduce a plug-in hybrid version of the all-new Grand Cherokee for the 2022 model year. Called the Grand Cherokee 4xe, it's the second PHEV from the off-road brand; the first is the Wrangler 4xe. Jeep has not yet announced any powertrain details, but we predict the new SUV will share the Wrangler 4xe's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that's paired to an electric motor for a combined output of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. That will be more than enough output for a majority of buyers.
The vehicle pictured here is also the first we've seen of the new two-row Grand Cherokee. Only the three-row Grand Cherokee L has been revealed so far. As expected, the two-row does not look dramatically different from its longer counterpart. There are some slight differences in bumper design, rear glass shape, and a new black bar running the width of the tailgate.
We also don't know at this time whether the Grand Cherokee L will receive the 4xe treatment, but it's highly likely at some point.
