Expect the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee to come with refined look and design that won’t be too much, and yet you can still tell the improvement from the previous model. If you close your eyes, the Grand Cherokee may feel (or sound) more like the Wrangler, but once you open your eyes, you get a completely real treat.
What makes Grand Cherokee special is the fact that it combines on-road good traits while boosting offroad powerful capability. Expect to find many luxury features and technologies within the rugged, sturdy, and outdoor look that all Jeep fans love.
The Expected Improvements
For the upcoming model, Jeep has planned to launch new generations of Cherokee but only in three row arrangement – which is definitely a change from the previous two rows. And for the upcoming model, the two-row (body) style would be coming with a new architecture and structure. The most obvious change and redesigned is the three row construction to deliver a more modern look and appeal.
Different trims will have different price tags on its own. The entry level would be the Laredo, set at around $35,000, while the higher Laredo L would be $38,000. The Limited would be set at around $40,000 while Limited L would be $45,000. The Overland would be $48,000 while the Overland L would be $50,000. And the Summit would be priced at around $54,000 while the premium Summit L would be $55,000.
Although Jeep hasn’t mentioned the details of the upcoming lines, we have known so far that the Limited has been offering a very good combination and balance – in terms of upgrade and price. But to be sure, let’s wait for further info about the lines, shall we?
Transmission, Engine, and Performance
The engine department doesn’t seem to change much for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The option is either the V8 Hemi with 5.7 liter capacity or the V6 engine with 3.6 liter capacity. The engine is matched with rear wheel driving system although there are several all wheel options being offered. There is a possibility of hybrid plug-in engine for those who are interested in electric ride, but there hasn’t been any clear indication of it; let alone complete information about it.
Since the engine doesn’t change much, don’t expect much change either for the fuel economy system. The current one has 26 mpg (with V6 and rear wheel driving system) for the highway and 14 mpg (for the V8 all wheel driving system) for the city.
Interior Cabin and Comfort
The current cabin is outdated, so it is only natural if Jeep is thinking about doing a refreshment work. The cabin is modernized, with different amenities being offered for different trims. The base, the Laredo, will get the basic essentials. For better luxury and updates, you should turn to Overland and Summit, especially if you expect high-tech digital clusters and displays, standard captain’s chair, wood trim, quilted leather upholstery, and so much more.
Driver assistance technologies are definitely a must, including the lane-keeping assist, pedestrian detection, and semi-auto driving modes. There would be infotainment display screen with 10.1 inch design, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, and satellite radio among some of the technologies for 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
