What are the different Jeep Grand Cherokee models?
While it’s already become the most awarded SUV ever, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup doesn’t look like it’s about to slow down at all with a variety of versatile models and trims packed with Jeep’s signature utility, style, and a hefty dose of luxury. From two rows to three, and from V6 gas engines to hybrid powertrains, there’s a Grand Cherokee model for everyone. Read on to learn more about the different Grand Cherokee models with your source for all things Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram: Toronto’s Golden Mile Chrysler.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The one that started it all, way back in 1992, the Jeep Grand Cherokee was designed to provide a larger, more luxurious take on the off-road vehicle. In 2022, it’s fair to say mission accomplished, with six different trims (plus four trims under the more utilitarian Grand Cherokee WK umbrella) providing a wide variety of modern SUVs capable of handling both your daily commute and your weekend adventures. This five person, two-row SUV is the perfect blend of style, off-road capability, and comfort, making it the perfect daily driver.
Jeep Grand Cherokee L
The 2022 Grand Cherokee L is in its second production year, adding a third row to the Grand Cherokee lineup, making it an exceptional choice for those wanting to carry more—whether it be people or cargo. In fact, the Grand Cherokee L offers spacious seating options for up to seven passengers, while also adding up to 2,395 litres worth of cargo space with the back second- and third-row seats folded.
Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe
All new for 2022, the PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) powertrain of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe combines two electric motors, a 400-volt battery pack, and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to create the most sustainable, environmentally-conscious Grand Cherokee ever! The 4xe simply doesn’t compromise, offering the type of utility, capability, and durability expected from a Jeep, alongside amazing efficiency and low emissions.
A variety of Jeep Grand Cherokee trims to choose from
While the Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup offers three different models to choose from, there’s also a wide array of different trims available so you can find the Grand Cherokee that fits your budget and lifestyle best. Want to upgrade from your current vehicle with a more economical option? The Laredo and Altitude trims of the Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L offer an excellent entry into the segment. Looking to push your boundaries off the beaten path? The Overland trim is available across the entire lineup. Looking for unparalleled luxury? The Summit Reserve trim has everything you could ever want and then some. Explore the different options below, before touching base with a member of the Oxford Dodge team to learn more about each individual trim.

Designed to stand out
From its rugged exterior styling to its sumptuous interiors, the entire Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup offers no shortage of highlights when it comes to looks, comfort, and utility. While there’s a common thread running through the entire model lineup, each model and trim offers a slight variation from the last, sometimes subtle and sometimes less so.
A deeper dive into the individual trim levels will give you a better idea of which details have changed, but a quick look at the dimensions of all three models paints a clear picture as to the dominant feel and utility associated with the Grand Cherokee nameplate:

Power comes standard
Potent performance comes courtesy of the powertrains found in the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup. Two gas engine options are found in the lineup, starting with Canada’s best-selling 3.6-litre Pentastar V6, while a 5.7-litre HEMI V8 brings even more power and capability to the table. A third option available in the Grand Cherokee 4xe is the 2.0-litre Turbocharged PHEV powertrain, which utilizes two electric motors along with a 400-volt battery pack to crank out 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque—all while offering incredible fuel economy ratings. No matter which powertrain you choose, a TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission harnesses your engine’s power for a smooth ride and access to your Jeep’s significant horsepower and torque.
