Best Electrified Utility Vehicle – 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe
Like the Wrangler 4xe, the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s powertrain integrates the electric motor with the transmission so the Jeep’s off-road capability remains unchanged from the gas-only variant. Not only does the new Grand Cherokee carry its passengers in comfort, at Mudfest the vehicle was able to perform impressively well on road or off in full electric mode. The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe possesses plenty of potency. A total output of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque makes this hybrid more powerful than the brand’s big V8 engine. Rated at 56 MPGe and 23 MPG combined, the 4xe can travel more than 25 miles on electric power, and can be fully charged in about two hours on a Level 2 charger.
