Great But Pricey Grand Cherokee

Update 2/2/23: *** After owning the GC 4xe for 6 weeks I'm pleased to find the electric range still meets our needs. With normal driving I can get 26-28 miles from the battery. We put around 700 miles on 1/2 tank of gas and have still not filled up :) After living with it a while here are my biggest complaints...the 4 cyl engine is NOT refined. It's quite loud and thrashy and is very noticeable when it kicks on. Once cruising at highway speeds its fine though. The car assigns profiles to the memory seat 1 and 2 positions. When switching a profile it switches everything: map destinations, seats, radio presets, etc... Unfortunately this effectively reboots everything. That means the widgets reload, the TomTom map restarts, the stereo restarts, etc... which takes several minutes! Imagine driving somewhere with navigation, hitting the memory seat button, and everything reboots...not good! I'd like to save all settings and only have the seat readjust with button #2. From what I can tell, not possible. Still getting the TPMS fault on startup which requires adjusting the cluster screen. The HVAC system seems to trigger on at a high (and loud) setting...would like to see more subtle management of the automatic climate control. Most of those items are annoyances that I can adapt to but as mentioned below, not what I would expect to deal with on a $75K vehicle. So my biggest complaint remains the luxury pricing without the luxury experience. Loaded with options, this is an excellent $60-65K vehicle. **** I bought a 2015 GC Summit for $48K, so the idea of a $75K Overland was difficult to say the least. This is BMW/Mercedes/Land Rover territory. In fact I came from a loaded X5 that I really enjoyed but was leery of owning out of warranty. I drove the standard GC and the powertrain is just too outdated, couldn't compete with the twin turbo V6 in the X5. The Jeeps 375 HP PHEV powertrain made it compelling though. With a true 25 miles of electric range the GC meets our needs for daily driving on electric. Stomp the pedal and it scoots close to X5 performance. The interior is luxurious but a bit buggy. I assume this will improve with software updates. Seats are very comfortable, McIntosh is great, and the overall tech is great. I thought the night vision was gimmicky until testing it on a dark street and it highlighted a person walking that I couldn't see. Definitely has value in certain situations! Several weird things though like the passenger screen can control FM stations but not Sirius, the TPMS system faults at startup until you start driving. Not a big deal but the warning message stays up so I have to cycle through cluster screens to get back to the right view. The heads up display nav instructions are tiny. It's hard to read street names and the text cuts off. They should have designed the HUD like BMW as one big screen instead of assigning content to small quadrants of the HUD. Massage and seat cooling works very well. Adaptive cruise and lane keeping is solid. Quiet ride with excellent suspension. So far I'm enjoying the GC and got this on a lease since they were including the full EV credit to reduce the cap cost. Take away the credit and I'd likely go for the X5 PHEV if it was a dollar for dollar comparison. Why? Feature-wise it compares well against the luxury brands, has off-road capability, and includes 3 years of maintenance. Overall I feel the GC 4xe is very good at a discount. Jeep really needs to rein in the sticker price or up the ante with what they offer though. For example, the Pentastar V6 is an old powertrain...why not offer the new Hurricane 6? Why is the destination charge hundreds more than other makes when this is coming from Detroit? Why only a 3 year warranty when luxury makes are 4 or even 5 years? Why do I only get a 3 month 'trial' of connected services on a $75K vehicle? If Jeep wants play at this price point they need to up the offering. I jumped on this car in 2015 for $48K and hesitantly got this 2022 at a discount. Though I'm enjoying the GC this is priced squarely in luxury territory and faces serious competition.

I’ve been driving my GC 4xe for almost a month and I reluctantly love it… It is the “entry level” for the 4xe and it still feels very luxury and nice. It has all the important to me features 4x4, quiet smooth ride, nice leather seats, nice screen, extra large moonroof, alpine stereo, and it is the perfect size. The worst part is that the hybrid engine probably isn’t what the X5 or RX is. If your daily drive is within 25 miles you’ll love it. If it’s much longer and better gas mileage is very important to you go elsewhere. The transition between engines isn’t always smooth. It’s works well just not $60k+ well. If having a jeep in this segment is more to you than excellent gas mileage you’ll love it. For me it really is the sweet spot. I commute 2 or 3x a week and get between 22-25 mpg on other days it’s full electric and great (I’ve yet to buy gas but getting really close) Charge times are long, it’s 10-12 hrs and the charger gets warm. I was planning on plugging in the charger in my ceiling outlet for my garage door opener and leaving it plugged in while hanging the charge cord next to the car from there but that doesn’t seem safe. I unplug both ends each time… not as smooth as I hoped but a non issue if you get the better charger (only 3 hrs) My wife hit a pretty big pot hole going fairly fast the first time she drove it and all seems as good as new so I can tell this is well built and a real jeep. I think it looks great, again it is the perfect size for me. I’m 6’4 and fit in Just fine. I wish the seat would go down a bit more but it isn’t bad at the lowest. I’m not a fan of the rims and i don’t think the lights are the same as the upper trims which bugs but totally worth not paying an extra $20k.

Very Capable and Efficient

The GC 4xe is an amazing plug in hybrid that can tow 6000# (in the pricier trims). But don’t expect to get a hitch on the base model. To tow 6000# with the base, you have to order a $600+ tow “prep” package which does not include a hitch or wiring, which will cost another $2000 or so for 2” receiver, wiring harness and installation (you practically have to disassemble all the base trim to install). So get a Trailhawk or Overland if you’re going to tow. The 26 mile electric range is great for running errands or commuting and will increase the mileage if the gas motor is only used sparingly. The technology is amazing and will tell you anything short of Santa’s arrival time. It handles very well, cruises the highway with ease, and absorbs bumps well. The 4x4 system is reassuring, and interior adjusts well for your comfort. If you have Yakima rack components, you’ll want to get their landing pad #19 to attach to the 4xe roof rails, then you can use control towers and anothers to carry crossbars and stuff. Oh, the radio manual is almost as thick as the owner’s manual 😄. I’m very satisfied with my Overland so far! Update: Starting with a fully charged battery, I recently got 27mpg on a 200 mile trip, driving 75mph on the Interstate along with about 25 miles of 62mph on State roads in Wisconsin. Not bad for a truck with 375hp that can tow 6000#!

Other than it taking 11 months since I ordered the Grand Cherokee 4xe, I was finally able to take deliver the first of December. Other than one minor glitch that my Jeep service department was able to rectify quickly, so far the Jeep has been a pleasure to drive. If I have a complaint, it seems to have less storage than previous Grand Cherokees. This is the 5th one I’ve owned and the glove box and center consoles seems to hold less. Perhaps I should be reviewing this again after owning for more than two weeks, but do far I’m happy with it.
