2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Trailhawk Review: The Grand Grows Up
• Auto123 reviews the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Trailhawk
• This is the plug-in Grand Cherokee.
It hasn’t taken Jeep long to capitalize on the success of the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) – itself having the success of the Europe-only Compass and Renegade 4xe models to thank. Here is the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe.
In this particular case, we go deeper into Wrangler world because our tester is also the Trailhawk version. It’s thus Trail Rated thanks to stuff like off-road tires, raised air-lift suspension and a disconnecting sway bar. There’s also a base 4xe model; both versions start at around $78,000, with the Trailhawk’s off-road accessories adding about a grand to the overall cost.
You can tell it’s the 4xe model because of the charge port atop the left front fender and a few neat details, like the winch mounts, tow hooks, badging and of course the big graphics package on my tester’s hood. And how can we not mention the blue sticker on the wheels? All feature blue highlights, including the Trailhawk badge on the tailgate, always bright red until now. Inside, we also find blue contrast colour stitching on the seats and dash as well as a number of functional adds we’ll get to in a minute.
