Jeep Pulls The Cover Off Of A PHEV ‘4xe’ Version Of The Grand Cherokee SUV

Like most of today’s major OEMs, Jeep is currently in the process of phasing out its petrol-powered rides in favor of new hybrid and EV offerings. And after previously pulling the cover off of a 4xe (pronounced “four by E”) spec Wrangler a few months ago, Jeep has now bestowed the same treatment upon its beloved Grand Cherokee model.

Starting with what is now the most awarded SUV of all time, Jeep has treated the (standard) fifth generation GC to a plug-in hybrid powertrain, and though the company has yet to cite any specs, it will likely be similar to the Wrangler 4xe’s configuration, which features a turbocharged 270hp inline-four engine that’s supplemented via electric motors front and back — with the fore unit making 44hp and the aft motor generating 134hp — both of which draw from a 14kWh lithium-ion battery. Thus far, Jeep has shown off the Grand Cherokee 4xe at the 2021 EV Day of Stellantis (Jeep’s parent company), though the manufacturer says the new PHEV SUV is slated for a full official release come the New York International Auto Show in late August.
