- the 2022 jeep grand cherokee will start at $39,185 when it goes on sale later this year.
- the new two-row grand cherokee is available with either rear- or four-wheel drive with either a v-6 or v-8 engine.
- a plug-in-hybrid 4xe model will arrive next year, though jeep has not announced its price.
jeep's fresh grand cherokee lineup is finally complete, with the upgraded two-row model joining the new three-row l model that debuted earlier this year. the 2022 standard-wheelbase version will go on sale by the end of this year with a starting price of $39,185, which is $3705 more than the previous generation that was sold alongside the new three-row l for the 2021 model year.
that starting price is for the base laredo model with rear-wheel drive, which is only available with a 3.6-liter v-6 with 293 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. it has cloth seats and 17-inch wheels. rear-wheel drive is standard on every jeep with the v-6, but four-wheel drive is available for an extra $2000. the altitude ($43,740) and limited ($45,505) models add leather seats and are also only available with the v-6 engine.
a 5.7-liter v-8 with 357 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque is available on the trailhawk, overland, summit, and new summit reserve models. it comes standard with four-wheel drive. the trailhawk gets jeep's "trail rated" badge thanks to off-road equipment including a front sway bar disconnect. it starts at $53,070 ($56,365 for the v-8). the overland starts at $55,100 with rear-wheel drive and the v-6 but can reach $60,395 with the v-8 engine. summit models have the most luxury appointments. they start at $59,160 and can reach $64,455 with the v-8. the new summit reserve trim is only available with four-wheel drive and costs $65,160 for the v-6 and $68,455 with the v-8.
there's also a new 4xe plug-in-hybrid model using a turbo four-cylinder engine and two electric motors drawing power from a lithium-ion battery, but jeep has yet to announce its price. the 4xe is available in limited, trailhawk, overland, and summit trims. it will go on sale early next year.
the 2022 jeep grand cherokee is slated to arrive at dealerships by the end of this year, and it will join the new three-row grand cherokee l, which costs $1500 more.
