Jeep will be launching the first-ever electrified Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe this spring, which will deliver 56 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) and 25 miles of all-electric range. The Easter Jeep Safari gives the Jeep design team the chance to take production vehicles to the next level, precisely what they’ve done with the Overlanding-inspired concept.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe: Specs
The most 4×4-capable and sustainable Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe has conquered the Rubicon Trail in full-electric operation, and now it’s ready to tackle all that Moab has to offer. The Trailhawk 4xe, just like the production Grand Cherokee 4xe, is powered by two electric motors. A 400-volt battery pack, 2.0-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine, and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission for maximum efficiency and capability. The vehicle is also equipped with Jeep’s class-exclusive Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension to optimize ride performance. In contrast, the class-exclusive sway-bar disconnect delivers improved articulation and traction over rocks and rough terrain.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe concept boasts a custom Industrial Blue exterior, signature 4xe Lagoon Blue tow hooks, and glare-proof black and blue matte Trailhawk hood decal. In addition, a custom roof rack with integrated tie-downs, a black painted Rhino Liner roof for added durability, custom fog light bezels with quad LED projector fog lamps, and custom vinyl side graphics for protection against debris adds to the appearance of the vehicle. Mopar rock rails are also added to improve protection against nature’s less-forgiving elements.
The interior of the concept features custom saddle-colored upholstered seats with “Rodney” houndstooth inserts. The seats also feature the signature 4xe Trailhawk badge and Surf Blue stitching. The entire rig rides on 20-inch painted Neutral Gray metallic matte wheels with 33-inch BFG mud-terrain tires. The wheel wells have been trimmed and fitted with custom widened flares to complement the meatier wheel and tire combo.
