Jeep’s roster of plug-in hybrid SUVs, which it calls 4xe, will double in size this spring when the new two-row Grand Cherokee 4xe joins the brand’s extant Wrangler Unlimited 4xe. The Grand Cherokee 4xe will be considerably pricier, with a starting price of $59,495 including the destination charge. That’s more than $5,000 north of the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe and some $20,000 above the starting price of a gas-only Grand Cherokee. But it slims down to as little as $1,800 over the cost of a roughly equivalent gas-only Grand Cherokee once you factor in the 4xe’s additional features and the $7,500 federal tax credit for which it should qualify.

The Grand Cherokee 4xe employs a 17-kilowatt-hour battery pack and standard four-wheel drive, and its standard features align roughly with the gas-only Grand Cherokee’s mid-grade Limited trim level with 4WD and some extra-cost options. Gussied up with similar features, a gas-only Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD would run $50,195 with destination. That’s just $1,800 below the net cost of a 4xe, excluding any sales tax implications. (Note, of course, that you’re generally charged tax on the gross price of a vehicle up front, regardless of how much comes back later in a federal credit. Depending on sales tax where you live, that could add hundreds of dollars to the 4xe’s net premium.)

The 4xe gets a few exclusive features, including a 10.25-inch front-passenger display that’s standard on all trims. Jeep estimates the PHEV can run on all-electric power for 25 miles, though EPA mileage once the battery is depleted has yet to be published as of this writing. The 4xe pairs two electric motors with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder for a combined 375 horsepower. That’s considerably more than the Grand Cherokee’s 293-hp, 3.6-liter V-6, though the 4xe will almost certainly weigh a lot more. (Jeep hasn’t posted curb weights yet as of this writing, but the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe, which has a similar powertrain, weighs 833 pounds, or 20%, more than a 3.6-liter Wrangler Unlimited 4×4.)

Jeep will offer the Grand Cherokee 4xe in five trim levels (all pricing below includes destination). We lay out the major equipment below; unless otherwise noted, higher trims generally include all the features of lower ones.
