Everything we know about the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
In 1993, Jeep revealed the Grand Cherokee and it exemplified the perfect balance between sportiness and ruggedness. The 2022 Grand Cherokee will share similar features to the latest Grand Cherokee L, with key differences being that it's a shorter wheelbase and one less seat row.
The next-gen Grand Cherokee will be offered in several trim levels, with most trims coming standard with rear-wheel drive. As an option, the Grand Cherokee will be offered with four-wheel drive too. As for engine options, the 2022 Grand Cherokee does offer many choices. The two-row Grand Cherokee will come standard with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine. The next engine option available is the 5.7-liter V-8 engine, which will likely be found under the hood of the smaller Grand Cherokee too. Also thrown into the mix is the highly anticipated plug-in hybrid 4xe model which is certain to get a lot of attention. Those who are seeking a more performance-based model will have their eyes set on the SRT models. As to whether the supercharged V-8 of the Trackhawk will find its way into the Grand Cherokee range is still unknown.
As for the interior, we are expecting the 2022 Grand Cherokee to come fitted with the same key infotainment features found in the longer Grand Cherokee L. An 8.4-inch touchscreen is most likely to be found in the entry-level options, while a larger 10.1-inch screen setup with FCA's Uconnect 5 infotainment software being offered in the higher range. We are likely to see the Grand Cherokee L's 10.3-inch digital gauge cluster and 10.0-inch head-up display in the smaller Grand Cherokee too.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is expected to hit the market in 2022. There is currently no confirmed date as to when it will come to SA or what the pricing will be.
