The official premiere of the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee will happen at 9 a.m. EDT / 1 p.m GMT on September 29, 2021 on a live stream on Jeep’s website.
The new, fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee makes its debut in three days – this Wednesday. For the first time, the model will offer 4xe plug-in hybrid technology. Jeep’s CEO Christian Meunier and Jim Morrison, Vice President of Jeep Brand North America, will host the reveal. The manufacture says this is the most technologically advanced, luxurious and 4×4-capable Jeep Grand Cherokee ever.
We expect the new 2-row Grand Cherokee will have much in common with the 3-row Grand Cherokee L model Jeep already unveiled, with the main differences in dimensions and seating capacity.
The newcomer adopts the 4xe plug-in hybrid system of the Jeep Wrangler, with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Most likely, Jeep will continue to offer familiar V6 and V8 engines for the new Grand Cherokee. As for the battery pack, it could be larger than that of the Wrangler. Well, very soon we’ll know all the details and if our assumptions are right.
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s pricing will likely start at about $35,000 and achieve $55,000 + for a fully-loaded model. The 2-row vehicle may inherit trims of the 3-row SUV, namely entry-level Laredo, mid-level Limited, upscale Overland, and top-of-the-range Summit. The SRT or Trackhawk versions may arrive later, not for the 2022 model year.
