What is new about the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Jeep made a couple of exciting updates to the Jeep Grand Cherokee for 2022. The most exciting is the addition of an available third row, expanding upon the practicality of the vehicle. Even though Jeep made the Grand Cherokee more useful as a family vehicle, they didn’t forget to innovate this year. They also decided to add an available 4xe model to the Grand Cherokee lineup, with a plug-in hybrid electric motor. In addition to these new features, Jeep continued to give the Grand Cherokee great capability, intuitive technology, comfort, modern style, and a plethora of safety features.

Legendary Capability

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee uses a class-exclusive V8 engine and a PHEV powertrain, giving you the power that you need to tackle Kentucky off-roading trails and city streets. Jeep gives you a choice between three available 4×4 systems – the Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Trac III with an electronic limited-slip rear differential. There is also an available Selec-Terrain system which lets you choose between auto, sport, rock, snow, or mud/sand modes, allowing you to conquer any path you face.

The Grand Cherokee also has a class-exclusive Quadra-Lift suspension with electronic semi-active damping, lowering the vehicle at highway speeds to achieve efficient aerodynamics. It allows you to make the vehicle taller to avoid obstacles on rocky terrain while off-roading.

On top of these features, the Grand Cherokee has a booming towing capacity of 7,200 lb. – allowing you to tow your boat, a trailer, or whatever else you are taking on your next adventure.

If you love to go off-road, the Grand Cherokee Trail-Rated Trailhawk would be the best pick for you. It has powerful abilities in five areas:

  1. Traction: Every wheel on the Grand Cherokee works to push it forward, and the 4×4 systems help make sure the correct tire has the most traction when it’s needed.
  2. Ground clearance: The Trailhawk gives a maximum clearance of 11.3” between the underside of the Jeep and the road, helping you to navigate rough terrain.
  3. Articulation: This feature helps to keep the four tires of the Grand Cherokee on the ground.
  4. Water Fording: The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk has special water sealing, high air intake, and a Quadra-Lift suspension system, which allows the Jeep to go through up to 24” of water.

All these performance features work together to make the Jeep Grand Cherokee the perfect vehicle to go off-roading or tow the family around Lexington.

Advanced, Innovative Technology

Not only does the Jeep Grand Cherokee have the performance features you love, but it also has the technology features you look for in a modern vehicle. In fact, the Summit model has the most standard and available technology in its class.

Do you want to ensure your passenger is comfortable and entertained? The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee has you covered. For the first time, the Grand Cherokee has an available passenger screen. It allows the passenger to send directions via the navigation system to the driver’s screen, watch movies, play online content through Amazon Fire TV, or listen to their favorite tunes and podcast through the provided wireless headphones.

Anyone in the vehicle can enjoy premium sound through the available McIntosh sound system. It includes 19 speakers, a 10” subwoofer, and a 17-channel amplifier that delivers up to 950 watts of sound.

The advanced technology does not stop there. The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee has an available 10.1” touchscreen, which lets you add up to five user profiles, customize the home screen, and have simultaneous dual-phone connectivity for passengers. There is also TomTom navigation, a Head-Up Display, a wireless charging pad, a 10.25” driver information digital cluster display, and a digital rearview mirror available.

Comfortable Interior

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee almost guarantees comfort for you and your passengers. When you’ve had a long, stressful day, upon sitting in your Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will be welcomed by the available massaging and heated/ventilated front seats and the interior ambient LED lighting will set the mood for your drive ahead. You’ll have room to throw all your belongings in the back – the Jeep Grand Cherokee has up to 84.6 cu. ft. of cargo room with the second and third row folded down. With just the third row folded, you’ll still have 49.6 cu. ft. of space.

Modern, Stylish Exterior

The exterior of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee does not disappoint. It has a tapered roof, which boosts aerodynamic performance without having to give up your precious cargo space inside. A full suite of premium LED lighting is available, including available fog lamps and standard LED headlamps and taillamps. 21” polished aluminum wheels are also available, adding to the overall stylish exterior. You can add a black roof for a two-tone look or buy the Grand Cherokee in one of the new three colors (Hydro Blue, Midnight Sky, and Ember) if you want to stand out on Lexington roads.

Enhanced Safety Features

With the Grand Cherokee being such a popular family vehicle, it is reasonable that you would be curious about the safety features that the Grand Cherokee offers. Rest assured – the Jeep Grand Cherokee has more than 110 standard and available safety features, making it the vehicle with the most available safety and security features in its class.

If you love driver assistance technology, you will love the active driving assist feature. It helps you remain a safe distance from the vehicle directly ahead of you and centers you in the lane using radar and sensors.

Even the standard safety package is impressive. It boasts a handful of features, including:

  • Adaptive cruise control with stop and go: Automatically changes your driving speed to keep your selected distance from the driver in front of you
  • Active lane management: Keeps you in the lane by measuring how far you are from lane boundaries and provides steering correction to help you avoid a crash with a car in your blind spot
  • Full-speed forward collision warning with active braking and pedestrian/cyclist detection: Uses sensors to alert you to avoid a frontal crash and automatically presses the brakes if you do not
  • Parkview rear back-up camera, with park sense front and rear park assist: Helps you to park easily using cameras and advanced assistance
  • Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection: Uses sensors to detect when a vehicle is in your blind spot or crossing behind your vehicle

There are more safety features of the Jeep Grand Cherokee that you could choose to add, which include:

  • Surround View Camera: Gives an aerial view of the vehicle and its surroundings
  • Night Vision Camera: Uses thermographic technology and infrared sensors to see pedestrians or animals up to 328 ft. ahead and outlines their positions in the instrument cluster
  • Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist: Recognizes open parking spaces and steers the vehicle while directing you to change gears and operate the brakes and accelerator
  • Intersection Collision Assist: Avoids collision by detecting other vehicles and providing audible and visual alerts
  • Traffic sign recognition: Uses a front camera to identify speed limits and traffic signs

With all these features and more, you will feel safe driving your Jeep Grand Cherokee through Lexington or Louisville streets.

The Eco-Friendly 4xe

If you are looking for a Grand Cherokee that is better for the environment and will save you money at the gas pump? Check out the new Grand Cherokee 4xe. It’s the most planet-friendly in its class and gets up to 470 miles of range when using the hybrid mode. They didn’t sacrifice power, though – it gets up to 375 hp, 470 lb.-ft. of torque, and has a 6,000 lb. maximum towing capacity. You can choose from three driving modes on the 4xe based on what you need that day: hybrid, electric, and esave mode.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is also great for off-roading. It has a water-sealed battery pack, which lets you drive through up to 24” of water. It also has the Quadra-Trac 4×4 system, which has a two-speed low transfer case that uses sensors to determine if the tires are slipping. When a tire slips, up to 100% of the available torque is given to the axle with the most traction to keep you on the road or trail.

The Grand Cherokee 4xe has Quadra-Drive II with a rear electronic limited-slip differential, which is an always active, full-time 4×4 system. This lets you drive the Jeep in all weather conditions by giving a single rear wheel up to 100% of the available torque if necessary. In addition, the underbody is always protected on the Grand Cherokee 4xe due to the reinforced housing that ensures the important components can handle any trail. To ensure you stay charged while off-roading, Jeep is installing solar-powered charging stations near popular off-roading trails in the US.
