The innovative 2023 Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid has been named the 2023 Green 4x4 of the Year by leading industry publication Green Car Journal. The awards were presented at this month’s annual San Antonio Auto.

Electrified and more efficient propulsion systems play an important role in the Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan that commits Stellantis to cut its global carbon footprint by 50% by 2030 and to lead the transportation industry by achieving net carbon zero by 2038.

The first Grand Cherokee to offer a plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) variant, the Grand Cherokee 4xe signals the continued growth of the Jeep brand’s electrified mission of Zero Emission Freedom. The Grand Cherokee 4xe’s PHEV technology enhances the fun, freedom and adventure that the Jeep brand is known for, while providing unprecedented performance, fuel economy and environmental friendliness. 

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe does an exceptional job of meeting the needs of a wide range of buyers today,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and “Its 2023 Green 4x4 of the Year® title is well earned, not only due to its considerable trail capabilities and ability to drive up to 48km on battery power alone, but also because of the sophisticated and satisfying driving experience it brings to the mission of navigating everyday life.”

Offering up to 48km of all-electric range and up to 51km of all-electric city range, the 2023 Grand Cherokee 4xe features a PHEV system that combines a high-tech, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack and a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Total combined system output of 380 hp combined and 640Nm of torque delivers 0-100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and max towing of 2.300 kg. 

Leading the segment in 4x4 capability, the Grand Cherokee 4xe comes standard with a two-speed transfer case, 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio and 47.4:1 crawl ratio. When equipped with the Quadra-Lift air suspension, the Grand Cherokee 4xe delivers up to 10.9 inches (27,5cm) of ground clearance and 24 inches (61cm) of water fording capability.
