Back when Jeep revealed the Five-Year Roadmap for the off-road automaker back in 2018, there were many promises between then and 2023. If the announcements by Stellantis are anything to go by, 2023 will be a big year for many automakers within the automotive group. Jeep had plans for a Desert-Rated lineup to match its current Trail-Rated lineup and an electrified-variant of every model currently in the lineup. Jeep was quick to get to work, releasing its first Mojave Edition of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, a Desert-Rated vehicle, followed by the Wrangler Mojave in May 2020. In early 2020, two other surprises popped up – the Jeep Compass 4xe and Renegade 4xe, the first plug-in hybrid Jeep models of the lineup, but only released overseas in Europe. The big one was the global release of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, and soon after, the Grand Cherokee 4xe was spotted.
Well, if anyone thought that last one was just a rumor, prepare to be dazzled. Recently, Jeep revealed that the first plug-in hybrid of the automaker’s best-selling SUV will soon be ready to hit the streets. That will officially make the Grand Cherokee the fourth electrified model in the lineup, but it is yet unclear whether or not the Grand Cherokee 4xe will also come stateside. With the Renegade and Compass already out there, we have two more models to look forward to, the Cherokee and the Gladiator also have plug-in hybrid variants to produce. After that, aside from the Grand Cherokee L, Jeep will have made good on its word to have an electrified version of every model in the lineup.
We mentioned big plans for Stellantis in 2023, and the electrification of Jeep models will continue even after the Grand Cherokee 4xe is released. In 2023, the off-road automaker will also be releasing a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) of the original one-and-only Jeep Wrangler. The first electric vehicle to come from Jeep will be based on the all-electric concept, the Jeep Magneto, first tested this past spring in Moab, Utah, during Jeep’s annual 2021 Easter off-roading safari. A BEV capable of generating 273 lb.-ft. of torque at 0 RPMs, the powertrain for the concept was made up of four battery packs with a combined power of 70 kW/h, capable of running an 800-volt system. The concept also came equipped with a JPP 2-inch lift kit, 17-inch Lights Out black metallic wheels with 35-inch mud-terrain tires, custom roll cage, Mopar Rock Rails, steel bumpers with a Warn winch and a steel belly pan for the Safari.
We don’t know how modified a BEV Wrangler would be, but Jeep announced that the automaker should have released “zero-emission” versions of all of its vehicles by 2025 along with the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) variants. Before all that, the Grand Cherokee 4xe is on the horizon. Estimated to be able to get 25 miles of all-electric range, and with a 57 mile per gallon equivalent (MPGe), the Grand Cherokee 4xe should be able to achieve a total driving range of more than 440 miles (708 km). The powertrain is made up of two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. All of the power is transferred through an eight-speed automatic transmission, and altogether is capable of generating 75 horsepower (280 kW) and 470 lb-ft of torque. Made for adventure, Jeep also claimed that the Grand Cherokee 4xe is capable of water fording up to 24 inches.
Things sure are moving fast, but Jeep is definitely one automaker to keep its word. Stellantis is focused on producing more hybrid, PHEV, and electric vehicles (EVs), also known as BEVs these days.
