  • Jeep has announced pricing for the 2022 Grand Cherokee's 4xe plug-in-hybrid model.

  • It starts at $59,495 and ranges up to $76,095 for the loaded Summit Reserve trim.

  • Jeep says that 4xe models will start arriving at dealerships this spring.

Jeep's second 4xe hybrid SUV is based on the new two-row Grand Cherokee, and this plug-in hybrid will be the most expensive model in the lineup. It starts at $59,495 and offers five trim levels ranging up to $76,095 for the top Summit Reserve, making for a premium of between $8250 and $9980 compared with the nonhybrid Grand Cherokee.

All Grand Cherokee 4xe models have the same powertrain that consists of a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four gasoline engine and two electric motors. It produces a total of 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque and is said to provide an electric driving range of 25 miles on a full charge. That's notably more power than even the Grand Cherokee's optional 357-hp 5.7-liter V-8, and considerably more than the base 3.6-liter V-6's 293 horsepower. But the hybrid will also likely weigh more than the nonhybrid model owing to its battery pack and other extra hardware.

The 4xe's trim lineup largely mirrors the standard Grand Cherokee's. All hybrids come standard with four-wheel drive, and the base 4xe appears to be roughly equivalent to the Limited 4x4. It's also available in the off-road-oriented Trailhawk trim ($64,280) and the more luxurious Overland ($67,555), Summit ($71,515), and Summit Reserve ($76,095) configurations.

While the standard 2022 Grand Cherokee is on sale now, there will be a bit more of a wait for the 4xe, as Jeep says it won't start arriving at dealerships until sometime this spring.
