Two-row Grand Cherokee nine months later than L model
Event happens early in the morning on the 29th
It’s been nine months since Jeep revealed the new L version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and while that model is already on dealership lots, the standard-length two-row Grand Cherokee has been conspicuously absent. Not for long, Jeep says, as the 2022 Grand Cherokee will finally be revealed next week.
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be unveiled in its world debut on September 29th in an event starting at 9 am Eastern. Jeep says that it will be revealed both with pure gas power and with Jeep’s 4xe plug-in hybrid technology.
While we haven’t seen the model yet, we don’t expect many changes from the L for Longer Grand Cherokee L. That model significantly upped the Grand Cherokee’s levels of luxury and capability thanks to new offerings like upcoming Level 2 automated driving, McIntosh audio, quilted leather, and loads of other new features.
Expect the same 290 hp 3.6L V6 and 357 hp 5.7L V8 as in the L version. What we don’t yet have are the details on the 4xe driveline, though it’s like to be similar to the turbo-four and electric motor making 375 hp and 470 lb-ft found in the Wrangler 4xe.
Jeep made the reveal announcement with a nod to the original Grand Cherokee’s North American International Auto Show debut. Back in 1992, then president of Chrysler Bob Lutz famously drove the all-new Jeep through the windows of Cobo Hall with the then-mayor of Detroit, Coleman Young, sitting beside him.
