This is, Jeep tells us, the most efficient Grand Cherokee ever - a vehicle perhaps not always known for headline-grabbing mpg stats.
With power of 380hp and with 637Nm of torque, the Grand Cherokee 4xe should also offer a spirited drive.
And because it’s a Jeep, you can expect the usual trademark prowess when it comes to dependable off-road capabilities, courtesy of a sophisticated 4x4 system.
A Jeep spokesperson says:
“The application of 4xe plug-in hybrid technology to the Jeep Grand Cherokee provides the brand’s flagship with benchmark off-roading capabilities, courtesy of the instantaneous availability of torque performance which is guaranteed by the combination of both turbo petrol and electric propulsion, and the option to drive with zero CO2 emissions.”
The Grand Cherokee 4xe - which slots into the Jeep range just behind the Wrangler - follows hot on the heels of ‘4xe’ plug-in versions of Jeep’s smaller Renegade and Compass. The Renegade and Compass can also be enjoyed with attractive mild-hybrid powertrains, too.
And at the heart of the full-size Grand Cherokee 4xe is a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine that works in tandem with two electric motors.
It’s good for up to 31 miles of electric range and there are also three drive modes - hybrid, electric and e-save - to help you manage your electric consumption.
And Jeep has thrown everything it can at the Grand Cherokee 4xe in terms of its all-wheel-drive wizardry.
There’s a ‘Quadra-Drive II’ 4x4 drive system, ‘Quadra-Lift’ air suspension and the ‘Selec-Terrain’ traction management system - which offers a choice among five driving modes - Auto, Snow, Sand/Mud, Rock, and Sport - to make sure you’ve always got traction when you need it.
To kick things off, the Grand Cherokee 4xe will only be available in high-spec ‘Summit Reserve’ trim. That model comes with 21-inch alloys - the largest ever on a Grand Cherokee – a diamond black roof and a choice of six exterior paint colours.
The cabin boasts swanky walnut accents, Palermo leather, heated seats front and rear, and four zone air conditioning. Lease customers can also expect wireless phone charging, 10-inch digital screens for the digital instrument panel and radio touchscreen. And the front seat passenger also gets their own 10.25-inch interactive display, too.
There’s a 950-watt McIntosh sound system with 19 speakers, ambient lighting, a digital rear mirror and even a night vision camera as standard.
Meanwhile there’s a whole host of driver assistance and safety features as standard, too. They include Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist and Full speed forward collision warning with pedestrian and cyclist detection.
