The Jeep Grand Cherokee celebrates three decades of combining a premium cabin and off-road capability. To mark the occasion, the brand launched the Grand Cherokee 4xe 30th Anniversary. You can check out the special edition posed with the original in the gallery below.
The 30th Anniversary Edition complements the Grand Cherokee 4xe with black exterior trim, including the grille and lower fascia. It rides on 20-inch black wheels with a Y-shaped spoke design. The tow hooks are blue. Other exterior elements include a dual-panel sunroof, a body-colored rear fascia, and a badge that identifies the vehicle as a special model.
Inside, this special edition has black Capri leather upholstery. Other perks include ventilation for the front seats, wireless charging pads, a nine-speaker Alpine stereo, a 10.1-inch infotainment screen with navigation, and wireless support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Front and rear parking assistance, rain sensing wipers, digital mirrors and a 360-degree camera system are among the safety features.
Other than these tweaks, this special edition is just like any other Grand Cherokee 4xe. The electrically assisted 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces a total of 375 horsepower (280 kilowatts) and 470 pound-feet (637 Newton-meters). The 17-kilowatt-hour battery provides about 25 miles (40 kilometers) of electric driving range. The vehicle can tow 6,000 pounds (2,720 kilograms).
To provide off-road capability, the Grand Cherokee 4xe has a Quadra Trac II 4×4 system with a two-speed transfer case. It has a crawl ratio of 47.4:1. In Trailhawk form, it features Quadra-Drive II 4×4 technology with a limited-slip differential at the rear, Selec-Terrain traction control and 10.9-inch ground clearance.
The 30th Anniversary Edition will add $4,700 to the price of the Grand Cherokee 4xe. Jeep will begin taking orders later this year, and deliveries will begin in early 2023.
The Grand Cherokee debuted at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 1992 and was first sold for the 1993 model year. Since then, Jeep has sold more than seven million of them.
