2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee: As Grand as the Name

When I step inside of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe (Summit Reserve) I see tech, comfort, and luxury design. The Grand Cherokee has been redesigned and it’s the first ever hybrid plug-in hybrid, with off-roading capabilities. This is for my fancy ladies who like to have fun. And you’ll know it as soon as you power her up and feel that engine. It’s a beast!

2022 Grand Cherokee

One thing I like to do when test driving a new vehicle is running some ordinary errands.

Why? So I can get a real feel of what it would be like to own the car. Can I comfortably pick up groceries, take my kid to golf, do a Target run? This is important to so many women especially since we spend a lot of time in our cars getting things done. I always look for comfort, luxury and practicality. I can gladly report that the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xE has ALL three.

Look at all the remaining space with the backseats still up!

Even a trip to Home Goods feels like an adventure.

Of course, I had to put the trunk space to the test. It sure is a generous space. Once the backseat is folded down, the Grand Cherokee gives you over 70 cubic feet of space. Just imagine all the goods you can pack in there!

Did I mention it’s sustainable?

Jeep did a pretty great job with this hybrid model. For starters, the design. You can tell it’s an EV by the blue accents which compliment it’s classic look nicely. Next, you get up to 26 electric miles to run on. Once they’re up, the car switches to hybrid mode. But if you only go local and stay under that, you can save a lot on gas. I drove this car for a little over one week and it remained nearly full which was pretty impressive.

A beautiful interior that is fully loaded.

Inside you’ll get pampered with soft, luxurious Palermo leather seats (ventilated with heating and cooling) and door trim. A high-performance 19 speaker sound system by McIntosh provides a beautiful, crisp quality to your listening experience (inside a quiet cabin). At night, ambient lighting is found throughout the car, giving passengers a more pleasant experience. Even the front seat passenger gets their own interactive display. The Jeep Grand Cherokee seats 5 comfortably and spaciously. If you’re a mama, this vehicle is a great option. No need to sacrifice style for space here.

What can I say? This is a great luxury ride.

Overall, I think the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4XE is a great mid-size SUV. It’s stylish, spacious, and sustainable. It’s got a strong engine that feels nice and heavy when running on gas but ultra quiet when running on electric. So you get the best of both worlds. Take it out for errands and leisure or take off-roading. She’s always pretty but not afraid to get dirty. If you like adventure but crave luxury, this may be the one for you.
