How is the 2023 Grand Cherokee 4xe powered?
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, or PHEVs for short, seamlessly coordinate a gas-powered engine and one or more electric motors. The 4xe specifically uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 cylinder gas-powered engine. In front of the engine, taking the place of the alternator, is an electric motor. Another electric motor is placed inside the transmission, replacing the traditional torque converter. Both electric motors are powered by a rechargeable battery pack found tucked away under the rear seat, sealed off from any outside elements. This setup unlocks an impressive 375 horsepower and access to 470 lb-ft of torque immediate torque. Furthermore, fuel economy is increased to the gas equivalent of 56 MPG. The hybrid power reduces range anxiety by giving drivers 440 miles of total driving range. The E-Selec buttons can control the system’s usage, allowing drivers to choose Hybrid, Electric, or E-Save. Jeep named their hybrid system 4xe as a conjunction of the phrases ‘four-by-four’ and ‘electric,’ becoming ‘four-by-electric.’ This is because every Grand Cherokee 4xe comes with Jeep’s sought-after Quadra-Trac I 4×4 system. This is a full-time 4×4 system with a single-speed transfer case that operates in 4-High at all times, sending 48% of torque to the front axle and 52% of torque to the rear axle. Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II both use a two-speed transfer case to constantly redistribute torque to the axle with the most traction.
