The 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe Doesn’t Skimp on Capability
How much can the Jeep Grand Cherokee Hybrid Tow?
Jeep has been building some of the automotive industry’s most interesting and capable platforms for a long time. As we enter the second decade of the 21st Century, the manufacturer finally took the leap into the hybrid vehicle segment. Why did Jeep wait so long? It’s most likely because they were waiting for the perfect level of plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology that doesn’t force customers to choose between fuel economy or strong performance. Since Jeep announced that one of its most popular models is getting the hybrid treatment, a lot of people are wondering, ‘How much can the Jeep Grand Cherokee hybrid tow?’ We just so happen to have that information and we’re sharing it with you, today.

2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe Towing Capacity
Since the 2022 Grand Cherokee’s 4xe trim is so specialized, there isn’t much available to be added to it. That means any Grand Cherokee wearing a 4xe badge will be able to tow up to 2,722 kg (6,000 lbs.).
Hybrid vehicles have been around in one form or another for more than 20 years. Jeep is the first original equipment manufacturer to apply that technology to platforms that can be taken through mud and over rocks. The beating heart of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is a turbocharged 2.0-litre, inline four-cylinder engine that gets a little help from a powerful electric motor mounted to the rear axle. When the gas engine and electric motor are working together, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe will produce up to 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Can the Grand Cherokee 4xe Tow Using Only Its Battery?
The electric motor that provides the electric power for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is designed to improve overall fuel economy on long trips and help drivers make trips of 40 km (25 miles) or less using only electricity stored in its battery system. It really isn’t designed to tow loads anywhere near the trim’s towing capacity of more than 2,700 kg without engaging the gasoline engine. And even if electric-only towing was a possibility for the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe, range figures would be compromised.
