The popularity of the Jeep Grand Cherokee starts from its tremendous performance.

Here are some facts and figures about this famous Jeep model:

  • It has impressive infotainment.
  • It’s a king-sized ride with a powerful engine and great powertrain.
  • The Grand Cherokee comes with a great in-built climate control system.
  • It has exceptional safety features including multi-stage airbags
  • Jeep sold over 250000 Grand Cherokee units in the 2020 year making it one of the best-selling mid-size SUVs.
  • This Jeep model can tow about 3355 kg (7400 pounds) in 2WD and 3265 kg (7200 pounds) in 4WD!

Even though the present body design has been around for several years (maybe 10 years), the Jeep Grand Cherokee always enters the market with spectacular features. With that said, Jeep is expected to release a brand new 2022 Grand Cherokee model with breathtaking innovations.

What to expect from the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee: New model refinements

The early leaks of the upcoming 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee are already spreading all over the internet.

This is what we know so far:

  • The upcoming Grand Cherokee model will be all-new from the ground.
  • New Cherokee is likely to be a three-row version
  • Jeep is preparing to drop its plug-in e-hybrid, and there’s a chance that the grander 2022 Grand Cherokee will offer electrification.

The interior

We expect Jeep to fit the 2022 Grand Cherokee with the same standard infotainment features found in the Grand Cherokee L (the longer model). The new SUV is likely to have additional luxuries like high-tech digital displays, open-pore wooden trim, and quilted leather cushioning.
The 3-row variant may have extra space for an optional second-row bench to accommodate more passengers. We haven’t had a chance to test the 2022 Grand Cherokee, but we expect it to hold more of your carry-on suitcases than the current model.

Engine options

The upcoming 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee model ought to offer several engine options for you to choose from. Like the last generation Grand Cherokee L, the new model is likely to offer:

  • A 290-hp 3.6-litre V6
  • A 357-HP 5.7-litre V8

The 3.6-litre turbo-diesel V6 and turbocharged 2-litre 4-cylinder found in Jeep Wrangler may also be offered to meet efficiency-oriented customers’ needs. As mentioned earlier, the 2022 Grand Cherokee may pair the gasoline engine with an electric motor to produce an e-hybrid 4xe model.

Vehicle price and fuel economy

The 2022 Grand Cherokee price and fuel economy estimates haven’t yet been released, but we aren’t expecting a huge change.
The new plug-in e-hybrid 4xe powertrain should deliver better fuel economy, but the technology will also hike the vehicle price. If the 2020 Grand Cherokee price was £25, 899 (base sum), we anticipate the 2022’s model price to reach up to £40, 000.

Conclusion

We will all know the precise generalisations of the upcoming 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee once the company unwraps it in the coming months. The sales will probably start before the end of the year 2021.
