The fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee has all-new architecture, all-new exterior design, all-new interior with world-class craftsmanship, added an L-model with 3 row seating and now has a new plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The Grand Cherokee 4xe is basically an additional powertrain choice in the well know model range. Under the hood is the 270-HP 2.0-L turbocharged 4-cylinder that’s available in other Jeeps. Replacing both the traditional electric starter and alternator is a front-mounted belt-driven high-voltage motor generator. This unit provides engine starting.
An 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic is slightly modified for the 4xe. Instead of the conventional torque convertor, a 134-HP high-voltage electric motor generator unit with two clutches sits between the gasoline engine and the transmission.
Total system output is 375-HP with a torque rating of 470 lb.-ft. It delivers 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe).
