Power of the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe

The all-new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is the first Grand Cherokee to deliver a plug-in hybrid vehicle variant. Its introduction is a display of Jeep's ongoing electrified mission of Zero Emission Freedom. The Grand Cherokee 4xe offers an all-electric range to handle daily commutes and a combined driving range to travel longer distances. There's no adventure that's out of reach.

What type of engine is in the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe?

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe system delivers 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine is a high-tech, direct-injected engine that uses a twin-scroll, low-inertia turbocharger mounted directly to the cylinder head.

What is the all-electric range on the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe?

The 4xe powertrain provides drivers 25 miles of all-electric range, returns an estimated 57 MPGe, and has an estimated total capacity of more than 440 miles. In addition, efficiency is enhanced via electric power steering and an electrically driven air conditioning compressor, removing those loads from the engine.

How is the motor-generator unit cooled on the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe?

A high-voltage, liquid-cooled motor-generator unit has replaced the conventional alternator. This motor-generator is connected to the engine's crankshaft pulley via a belt. The motor-generator seamlessly spins the engine, is fuel-saving, start-stop operation, and generates electricity for the battery pack. There is also a larger high-voltage motor-generator mounted in the transmission, replacing the torque converter. Two clutches manage power and torque from the e-motor and engine.

Where are the clutches mounted on the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe?

A clutch has been mounted between the engine and the motor. This clutch opens when the 4xe system is placed in electric-only mode, so there is no mechanical linkage between the engine and the e-motor. Instead, the system combines torque from the 2.0-liter engine and the e-motor flow through the automatic transmission when this clutch is closed. The second variable clutch is mounted behind the e-motor. This system manages engagement with the transmission to improve drivability and efficiency.

Is the Grand Cherokee 4xe's battery pack sealed?

The 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe comes with a 400-volt, 17-kWh EV battery. The battery units and controls have been mount underneath the vehicle. Jeep packaged the battery and all controls under the floor and protected them by a series of skid plates. In addition, Jeep gave the battery system a dedicated heating and cooling circuit to keep the battery at its optimum temperature for the best performance.
