We now have our first look a the two-row 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe (WL74) testing on public roads in Detroit. It's the second part of a wave of new Grand Cherokee models that will be introduced this year along with the three-row Grand Cherokee L (WL75).

The Grand Cherokee 4xe is not just shorter than the Grand Cherokee L, there are some noticeable design differences as well. The biggest one is the the front fascia, going for a more sporty and angular look rather than the Grand Cherokee L's squared looks.

The 4xe's powertrain is expected to be the same turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine that's in the Wrangler 4xe and paired with two electric motors that will produce a combined 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. There are rumors that an all-new turbocharged “Tornado” inline-six with standard 48v mild-hybrid electrification will eventually find its to the Grand Cherokee 4xe as well. It will be paired with an all new ZF eight speed gearboc that

The two-row 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is expected to start production at the company's Jefferson North Assembly Plant this fall.
