The Start of Something New
Images of the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4Xe have been released, and they are electrifying. Jeep is starting to take strides in their promise to produce a zero-emissions lineup by creating a hybrid version of one of their most iconic models.
Because of this, we’re sure to see an improvement in fuel efficiency. The current base Laredo E model has an EPA-estimated 22 combined MPG. A plug-in hybrid is sure to change up the game when it comes to fill-ups.
Based on past Grand Cherokee models, we can expect a notch above or similar interior cabin features. However, for the 2022 model, the higher-level trim options are predicted to add more features like quilted leather upholstery, wood trim accents, and more modernized digital displays.
Okay, okay, but what about space? Just looking at what the Grand Cherokee currently has on the market, the 2022 model is expected to squeeze in a few more inches of cargo room for your adventuring gear.
The 2021 Grand Cherokee manages to provide a maximum cargo volume of 68.3 cubic feet, so we can anticipate a similar measurement from its successor.
Passenger room is also important for traveling families, which is why past Grand Cherokee models allow for at least 40.3 inches of front legroom and 38.6 inches of rear legroom. We can depend on the 2022 version to give us nothing less.
In this day and age, you cannot overlook tech features that are there to help keep you connected. The standard 2022 Grand Cherokee will no doubt keep up with its previous model years by including a 10.1-inch infotainment dashboard touchscreen, which includes Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.
As you climb higher in trim levels, you’ll see a difference in available features. Advanced sound systems like a 9-speaker Alpine audio setup or an upscale 19-speaker McIntosh presentation will both be options.
Jeep has a reputation for supplying drivers with top-notch safety and driver-assisting features. If we’re looking at the 2021 Grand Cherokee, some available features include:
- Advanced Brake Assist
- LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go
- Blind Spot Monitoring
Though Jeep hasn’t released any safety specifics about the 2022 model, it’s expected to provide similar functionalities that Jeep drivers are used to, like visual and audio alert systems, parking assistance, and more.
