Jeep Grand Cherokee Earns Car and Driver Editors’ Choice Awards
A total of eight vehicles from the Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Ram and Jeep® brands are among those selected by the editors of Car and Driver for the 2022 edition of the publication’s annual Editors’ Choice honors.
“Car and Driver tests more cars—more thoroughly—than anyone on the planet,” says Hearst Autos Chief Brand Officer Eddie Alterman. “Our Editors’ Choice lineup represents a wide spectrum of great cars that we editors would love to park in our garages, if we only had the room!”
As the most awarded SUV ever, the Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup spans five generations and now includes an all-new two-row, an electrified plug-in-hybrid model and the three-row Grand Cherokee L.
The first-ever Grand Cherokee 4xe is set to deliver 25 miles of all-electric range, 56 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) and a combined driving range of more than 440 miles. The 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, 2.0-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission for maximum efficiency and capability.
The Grand Cherokee L debuted in 2021 to meet the growing needs of Jeep customers who have asked for more space and functionality. Designed to maximize overall passenger comfort, the Grand Cherokee L delivers uncompromised third-row capacity and increased cargo volume with seating for up to seven passengers. The vehicle’s expanded wheelbase creates generous interior room and gives passengers expansive, class-leading legroom in the second row.
With premium styling and craftsmanship inside and out, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has more than 110 advanced safety and security features, including advanced driver-assist systems, 360-degree surround view, drowsy driver detection and night vision cameras. Segment-leading technologies include a 10.25-inch front passenger screen, rear-seat monitoring camera system, rear-seat entertainment displays with built-in Amazon Fire TV and an available premium 19-speaker, 950-watt McIntosh audio system. The Jeep Grand Cherokee also comes equipped with the award-winning Uconnect 5 infotainment system, with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
