What Engines Does the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Offer?
The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee continues to use the trusted engine lineup that Jeep has perfected over the years. Kicking off the lineup is the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, delivering 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, towing up to 6,200 pounds. Meanwhile, you can choose a 5.7L HEMI V8 that bumps the numbers up to 357 horsepower, 390 lb-ft of torque, and a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds. The 2023 Grand Cherokee V8 models now employ Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder deactivation. When the vehicle is under light use such as coasting on the highway, the valves of four cylinders will close, cutting off fuel flow to those cylinders, thus using less fuel and increasing the fuel efficiency. When the driver presses the gas pedal, the four cylinders will seamlessly reactivate, running all eight cylinders to supply the additional power. The last available engine was introduced for the 2022 model year, named 4xe. Standing for four-by-electric, the 4xe lineup is the first-ever plug-in hybrid Grand Cherokee. With a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine, a 400-volt rechargeable battery pack, and two electric motors, the Grand Cherokee 4xe lineup delivers 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque while maintaining an average of 56 MPGe.
What 4×4 Systems Does the 2023 Grand Cherokee Use?
While rear-wheel drive is standard for the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4×4 is the most common drivetrain here in Michigan, as it is designed to handle the unpredictable weather conditions our great state experiences. Three 4×4 systems are available for the 2023 Grand Cherokee. The first is Quadra-Trac I. This is a full-time 4×4 system that uses a single-speed transfer case that detects wheel slippage with a network of sensors that monitors tire spin. When a loss of traction occurs, the transfer case will redistribute torque to the axle with the most traction to counteract the slip offering confidence in all road and weather conditions. Meanwhile, Quadra-Trac II also operates in full-time 4×4. However, the two-speed transfer case allows drivers to select a 4-low mode to provide torque to the axle with the most traction at the earliest possible time. Last is the available Quadra-Drive II 4×4 with an electronic limited-slip rear differential. This system provides unparalleled all-terrain capability by sending torque back to front and side to side and even sending up to 100% of available engine torque to a single rear wheel with the most traction.
2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Technology Features
The Jeep Grand Cherokee always leads the pack with advanced technologies keeping drivers connected and safe. In the 2023 model year, the Grand Cherokee uses Uconnect 5 infotainment software displayed on a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen on the Laredo trim, while a 10.1-inch touchscreen is standard for the Limited trim and all that follow. Uconnect 5 features advanced technologies like Amazon Alexa virtual assistant with home-to-car functions, cordless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, two-device Bluetooth ability, and more. Behind the leather-wrapped steering wheel sits a 10.25-inch fully-digital gauge cluster that drivers can customize to display driving information that is most important to them, including driver aids. Beginning at the Limited trim, TomTom navigation with voice recognition and over-the-air traffic updates is standard. The Grand Cherokee also comes standard with an array of high-tech driver assistance technologies including blindspot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection, active lane management, adaptive cruise control, full-speed forward collision detection, automatic emergency braking, and front and rear parking sensors.
