2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo gas/electric plug-in hybrid 8A)
Once again, electric range is great for our needs. We've filled this car 3 times in the last 7 months.
Unfortunately, the issues reported below persist and new ones have appeared - all with the infotainment system. I recently had all of the software updated, but it didn't eliminate the issues: 1) occasionally a VERY loud buzzing sound and *boom* - the entire … system reboots. 2) Sometimes when parking and getting back in after just a few minutes, the system 'loads' for several minutes. Other times, everything is fine. 3) After the software updates the blinker speed is now about 1/3 normal. Apparently this requires a Stellantis tech to reprogram it and my dealer isn't making this a priority 4) The TPMS issue is apparently a big one and there is a STAR case open to resolve it 5) Occasionally the heads-up info configuration changes. This gets fixed when restarting the car.
So...while the driving and comfort is still nice, these nagging issues significantly take away from the ownership experience. I have a hard time being okay with these (and the lack of fixes/updates) on a $75K vehicle and think back to my tech-heavy X5 which was a much more satisfying experience. At this price point I will switch from Jeep unless they make big improvements in this area.
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.
