2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The 2022 model year is going to be a very exciting time for the Jeep Grand Cherokee and its fans. Our manufacturing partner has completely redesigned the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee, giving it a sleeker and more aerodynamic outline to promote efficiency as well as a new hybrid powertrain. Additionally, independent online reviews have praised the 2022 Grand Cherokee for many of the same things that have always typified the platform, including a broad range of powerful engines, and, naturally, the model’s incredible off-road capability.

Follow along with Southside Dodge as we take an in-depth look at the latest member of the Grand Cherokee family.

Exterior Features

LED Lighting Options

There is no telling where someone will take the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. But, it seems likely that at least some of those places won’t have streetlights. The latest Jeep SUV can be equipped with premium LED headlights to nearly turn night into day. Additionally, some trim grades offer LED fog lights to help drivers more safely navigate less-than-ideal conditions.

Fuel-Saving Design

Details matter when it comes to automotive design. An angle off by a degree or two can have a butterfly effect on everything from performance to fuel economy. The 2022 Grand Cherokee uses a new silhouette that is specially angled to help promote fuel economy and overall performance.

Interior Features

Cavernous Cargo Volume

Interior flexibility is among the many elements that make the Jeep Grand Cherokee so popular among SUV shoppers. Drivers and passengers will be able to use 1.07 cubic-meters (37.7 cu.-ft.) of cargo volume when people are sitting in the rear of the vehicle. The cargo bay can almost double in size when the seat is folded down to reveal 2.0 cubic-meters (70.8 cu.-ft.).

Innovative Comfort Features

Passenger comfort is pretty high on the list of priorities for any automaker. Jeep takes that idea to a new level with the development of the 2022 Grand Cherokee. Some of the SUV’s trim grades will be equipped with massage functions for the driver and front passenger seats. Additionally, those seats feature 16-way adjustable seats with memory settings.

Mood-Setting LEDs

The ability to customize interior elements of a vehicle is quickly becoming a more popular feature in many new vehicles. Jeep has installed such a system in the 2022 Grand Cherokee, allowing the SUV’s occupants to control the LED ambient lights. They will be able to set the mood or add sophistication to any trip.

Engines & Capability

Powertrain Menu Options

There is no version of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee that lacks performance. Entry-level models employ a 293-horsepower V-6 engine. Southside Dodge customers needing more power can opt for the 5.7-litre HEMI® V-8, topping out at 357 horsepower. Finally, the new hybrid 4xe trim will use a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to electric motors for improved fuel economy and performance. It will make a maximum of 375 horsepower.

2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe Driving Modes

There was a time when hybrid powertrains were dismissed as gimmicks. That time has thankfully passed. Future owners of the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe will have a few ways to program their SUV’s powertrain to get exactly the blend of performance and efficiency they are looking for, using one of three driving modes:

  • Hybrid Mode — This is the setting that will be used for long trips. It activates both the gas engine and the electric motors to provide maximum fuel economy on the open road.
  • Electric Mode — Most people don’t travel as far as you’d expect on a daily basis. Electric mode can provide enough electric power to push the SUV for about 40 km.
  • eSave — If a trip goes beyond the 40-km limit, it will be necessary to charge the battery again. A purely electric vehicle would need to stop to be plugged into a charger. The eSave mode uses an onboard generator to charge the batteries used by the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe.

Towing Capacity for the 2022 Grand Cherokee

Every 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee provides very strong towing scores for its class. Models of the 2022 Grand Cherokee with the V-6 engine can pull up to 2,800 kg; a trim with the V-8 engine will tow 3,200 kg, and the hybrid 4xe has a 2,700-kg towing capacity.

Co-Pilot System

There are a lot of reasons to travel with another person. In the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee that person will be more helpful thanks to the available co-pilot touchscreen. The new interface is placed on the passenger-side of the dashboard and it will allow them to control navigation as well as various rear-seat entertainment systems.

Premium Audio System

Whether someone loves music or the newest podcast, everything will sound better with the available McIntosh® Premium Audio system in the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The home audio leader has adapted its technology to feature 19 speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer in the SUV’s passenger cabin.

Infotainment/Connectivity Technology

Jeep has used the Uconnect infotainment system for a long time. The 2022 Grand Cherokee employs Uconnect 5, which is up to three times faster and offers a touchscreen with a higher resolution than previous iterations. Compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant is standard equipment.


New Driver Assistance Technology

Passenger safety looks a lot different at this point in the 21st century. Instead of a vehicle simply absorbing an impact to protect its passengers, modern technology allows us to largely avoid potential problems before they happen. The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee is equipped with some of the most standard and available active safety systems in its class.

Advanced Active Safety Systems

Get to know the suite of active safety systems available with the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee before you visit the Southside Dodge showroom:

  • Active Driving Assist — A lapse in judgement can have major consequences while on the road. Active Driving Assist will keep drivers centered in their lane of travel, helping to prevent collisions.
  • Hands-Free Active Driving Assist — It’s natural for a driver’s arms to get tired after holding on to the steering for a few hundred kilometers. Hands-Free Active Driving Assist allows the person behind the wheel to take short breaks from holding onto the wheel while also remaining ready to take immediate action, if necessary.
  • Surround View Camera — Not seeing an obstacle isn’t going to be a good excuse for hitting it anymore. The available Surround View Camera gives drivers a composite top-down view of the area around the 2022 Grand Cherokee, improving situational awareness.
  • Night Vision — Driving at night naturally comes with more hazards than during the day. The available Night Vision system shows an infrared image of the road ahead on the vehicle’s driver information screen behind the steering wheel.
  • Intersection Collision Assist — Nobody can control what other drivers do at an intersection. The Intersection Collision Assist system will tell the driver of the 2022 Grand Cherokee that there could be potential danger, providing audio and visual alerts.
  • Drowsy Driver Detection — Almost every study about traffic safety identifies driving while tired as a major hazard. The Drowsy Driver Detection system will monitor the person behind the wheel with a driver-facing camera and alert them if their attention wanders.

2021 Grand Cherokee Model Changes

Every iteration of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a masterclass in SUV design and capability. The 2022 model is no different with its new sleeker exterior proportions, wide range of engine options – including the hybrid platform. All of that amounts to a popular model that was redesigned for the current model year, representing the model’s fifth generation.
