Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe now available to pre-order in the UK

4xe plug-in hybrid technology
The arrival of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is a significant moment in the brand’s evolution and another piece in the jigsaw of the brand’s strategy to electrify the entire line-up. It consolidates the 4xe badge as authentic Jeep branding, to represent the new 4×4 and its ability to combine renowned capabilities with greater sustainability, exemplary efficiency and even more safety and driving pleasure. 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 most technologically advanced, luxurious Grand Cherokee ever with legendary 4×4 performance
The fifth generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee – the SUV that has received more awards than any other – features a new architecture, 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain, a new exterior design and a new interior created using quality craftsmanship and cutting-edge technologies. As the 4×4 originators, Jeep continues its journey towards a future of ‘Zero Emission Freedom’, the Grand Cherokee 4xe is the most technologically advanced Jeep Grand Cherokee with the best 4×4 performance ever.

Equipped with state-of-the-art systems, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been designed in its entirety to offer unparalleled off-road capabilities and safe driving dynamics. The Quadra-Drive II 4×4 drive systems, Quadra-Lift air suspension and the Selec-Terrain traction management system – offering a choice among five driving modes: Auto, Snow, Sand/Mud, Rock, and Sport – ensure the Grand Cherokee retains the Jeep brand’s legendary 4×4 capabilities.

Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe Summit Reserve : the flagship that sets new standards in the segment
The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe debuts with the Summit Reserve which stands out for its wide-ranging specification as standard. The 21-inch polished alloy wheels – the largest ever on a Grand Cherokee – enhance the broader track, while the diamond black roof in contrast with the bodywork defines its lowered line and emphasises the rear spoilers on the vertical pillar. The model comes in six exterior paint colours – Diamond Black, Bright White, Velvet Red, Baltic Grey, Silver Zynith, and Midnight Sky – all with a black roof and embellished with Platinum Chrome details.

Craftsmanship and functional beauty are also the basis for the interior, the standout features of which include walnut accents and door/seat upholstery in Palermo leather. The driver and passenger seats can be electrically adjusted into 16 positions, are equipped with lumbar support and memory function, and also offer a massage function built into the backrest. The rear seats are also heated and ventilated. The front fascia houses the new, slimmer vents of the air conditioning system – with four zones, to guarantee exceptional comfort for all passengers, a new centre console, wireless charging system and 10-inch digital screens (for the digital instrument panel and radio touchscreen), as well as an exclusive 10.25-inch interactive display for the front seat passenger.

The Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe Summit Reserve also upgrades to the 950-watt McIntosh sound system with 19 speakers. One of the finest in the world, it uses the same technology as McIntosh home sound systems. The magnets and coils in the speakers produce a unique sound, without a hint of distortion. To create an environment tailored to your taste, the interior also features a full suite of customisable LED lights with day/night settings and an ambient lighting system with the option to choose between five colours.

The new Grand Cherokee sports more high-tech specifications than it ever has. As standard, the Grand Cherokee 4xe Summit Reserve receives:
