Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 2023 Review
Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 2023 Review
Jeep's flagship Grand Cherokee SUV has embraced the electrified era with the introduction of the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Reserve 4xe, highlighting the swift evolution of the automotive industry. Unlike its predecessor, the Trackhawk, which boasted a 522kW supercharged V8, the 4xe incorporates a downsized 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with battery support. This transformation has overall increased the Grand Cherokee's adaptability and capabilities, let's explore.
Summit Reserve Luxury
The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Reserve 4xe, available only in Summit Reserve trim, introduces advanced features and technology. It boasts 16-way adjustable quilted front seats with massage functionality, heated and ventilated seating for both front and rear passengers, a panoramic sunroof, 21-inch wheels, and advanced LED headlights. While it offers a wealth of high-end features, there are some options that come at an additional cost, such as the Advanced Technology Group, including a head-up display and wireless phone charging.
Safety and Technology
The 4xe has earned a five-star ANCAP rating, with numerous safety features and assistance systems, making it a sound choice for safety-conscious buyers. The technology in the 4xe is impressive, with a 10.1-inch infotainment system, a 10.25-inch digital instrument display, a head-up display, digital rear-view mirror, and a front passenger display. Jeep connect services are also available to control various vehicle functions via a smartphone or smartwatch.
Performance and Efficiency
The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an electric motor, delivering a combined output of 280kW and 637Nm. It features all-wheel drive with Jeep's Quadra-Trac II system and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle is equipped with a 17.3kWh battery pack, providing up to 52km of electric-only range, with a claimed fuel consumption of 3.2L/100km. However, real-world fuel efficiency may vary, especially during extended drives when the electric power runs out.
On and Off the Road
On the road, the 4xe offers smooth performance, overcoming the limitations of the previous V6 engine. It accelerates briskly and handles well, although the ride can feel unsettled on rough surfaces, partly due to the larger 21-inch wheels. For off-road enthusiasts, the 4xe is equipped with Jeep's Quadra-Trac II system, air suspension, and ground clearance of up to 276mm, making it capable of handling various terrains. It can tow up to 2722kg, but towing for long distances may prove fuel-inefficient due to battery depletion.
Interior Comfort and Space
The interior of the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe boasts high-quality materials and spacious seating. The second row is roomy, and the large boot provides ample storage space. Despite these strengths, some interior aspects may not meet expectations in a premium SUV, particularly when compared to competitors
