What the Critics Say

The plug-in powertrain delivers performance similar to the Grand Cherokee’s V-8 engine while achieving vastly better fuel economy. It’s best suited to drivers who can plug in often, but it’s reasonably thrifty even when the battery runs low. The Grand Cherokee 4xe is a more refined product than the Wrangler 4xe, and it’s nearly as capable off-road.” – MotorTrend
Every Jeep vehicle has a substantial amount of off-road talent. With a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, though, the 4xe can go into the wild for an appreciable distance and leave it untainted by exhaust fumes. Jeep says the Grand Cherokee 4xe — in Trailhawk form — completed the famously tough Rubicon Trail on battery power alone.” – Kelley Blue Book

What’s New for 2023

After a successful debut last year, there are only a few minor changes to the adventurous yet efficient Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe. This year, the thrilling Trailhawk model is available exclusively with the 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain. Trailhawk variants now come standard with gloss black trim accents as well. Also new to the lineup this year is a commemorative 30th Anniversary Edition model that boasts Trailhawk-like exterior accents and premium amenities throughout the cabin.
