Powertrain Options for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Grand Cherokee is known for its athleticism, and all-around off-road capabilities, especially in the Trailhawk trim level. But what helps the Grand Cherokee harness this power? For 2022, there are two engine options available for the five-trim level lineup. The standard engine is a robust 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which is rated at 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Bringing fuel-efficiency to the forefront, this engine incorporates a variable valve timing (VVT) system. When properly equipped, a Grand Cherokee with the V6 engine can tow up to 6,200 pounds, and features standard rear-wheel drive, with 4-wheel drive as an available option. If you’re looking for a boost in power, then you can opt for the 5.7-liter V8 rated at 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the Grand Cherokee can tow up to 7,200 pounds, and the V8 also comes exclusively with 4-wheel drive, using one of Jeep’s three legendary 4X4 systems. Both powertrains also feature the tried and true 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
What New Design Features does the 2022 Grand Cherokee Provide?
As mentioned above, the 2022 Grand Cherokee has a redesigned look both inside and out, which emphasizes a sleek and refined appearance. Its front grille has a more streamlined design, which still features the iconic seven slots, but in a more simplified way. On the exterior, you’ll also find LED exterior lighting, and wheels measuring up to 20 inches depending on the trim level you choose. Inside, the 2022 Grand Cherokee offers Capri leather-trimmed seats, as well as heated and ventilated seats in both the front and rear. On the Summit, the seating gets an added layer of luxury with a built-in massager, as well as memory settings so different passengers can save their unique seating adjustments. If you want something sportier, the Trailhawk trim includes some extra equipment to enhance its off-road prowess, including steel skid plates, red-painted tow hooks, and a black hood decal. Some other available options include a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and a black-painted roof.
What Tech Features Can I Find in the 2022 Grand Cherokee?
One of the main updates that differentiates the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the previous model years is its upgraded tech features. The 2022 Grand Cherokee lineup features the new Uconnect 5 infotainment system, which includes an on-board 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and standard wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Uconnect provides a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen, with a larger, 10.1-inch touchscreen for the upper trim levels. Another huge update is the addition of a new front-passenger touchscreen, which adds a second touchscreen to the passenger’s side of the dashboard. This way, they can control their own preferences in music, handle navigation, and more. In addition to these touchscreens, the Grand Cherokee also has an available Head-Up Display which will project various information onto a section of the windshield so that the driver can maintain eye contact with the road. There are also tons of advanced safety features available, like a 360-degree camera, traffic sign recognition, and drowsy driver detection.
