People are excited about the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. For years, rumors have circulated about a massive engine upgrade expected for the classic SUV. Now reports have surfaced that the engine, codenamed Tornado, will debut in next year’s model.
The 2022 Grand Cherokee is also expected to join the plug-in hybrid family along with its cousin, the Jeep Wrangler. Both powertrains are expected to be available by the end of this year.
Jeep’s new 2022 Grand Cherokee could have a new engine.
Expected specs for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Tornado, Jeep’s new engine, is a turbocharged, 3.0-liter, inline-six engine with 48-volt mild-hybrid assistance. Motor1 claims that it could be just as powerful as the existing 5.7-liter V8, if not more so.
The Cherokee’s plug-in hybrid option would be the same 4xe powertrain as the Wrangler—a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder with two electric motors. Altogether the engines would give the Grand Cherokee 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Engine specs aren’t the only thing getting an upgrade. A facia tweak, slightly shorter body, and safety tech like full-speed collision warning, rear cross-path detection, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist are all expected to be in the mix.
2021’s surprise from Jeep: the Grand Cherokee L
The 2022 Grand Cherokee borrows its new look from the previous year’s new model from Jeep, the Grand Cherokee L.
Beyond the facelift, Car and Driver says the Cherokee L includes a third row of seating and upgraded safety and driver assistance features like the ones expected in the 2022 model.
The Cherokee L comes in six trims, from the $38,700 Laredo to the $61,700 Summit Reserve. Upgrades can include a power-operated rear liftgate, automatic high-beam headlamps, remote start, interior ambient lighting, driver memory settings, leather upholstery, and heated second-row seats.
No matter the trim, the Cherokee L comes in rear- or all-wheel drive with either a 290-hp V-6 or a 357-hp V-8. All in all, it’s a family-friendly balance between luxury and off-road capability.
