The Jeep Grand Cherokee celebrates three decades of combining a premium cabin and off-road ability. To mark the occasion, the brand launches the Grand Cherokee 4xe 30th Anniversary. You can see the special edition posing with the original in the gallery below.
The 30th Anniversary edition outfits the Grand Cherokee 4xe with black exterior trim, including on the grille and lower fascia. It rides on black 20-inch wheels with a Y-shaped spoke design. The tow hooks are blue. Other exterior elements include a dual-pane sunroof, body-color rear fascia, and badges identifying this vehicle as the special model.
Inside, this special edition has black Capri leather seats. Other amenities include ventilation for the front chairs, a wireless charging pad, a nine-speaker Alpine stereo, a 10.1-inch infotainment screen with navigation, and wireless support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Front and rear park asssist, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a digital rearview mirror, and a 360-degree camera system are among the safety features.
Other than these tweaks, this special edition is like any other Grand Cherokee 4xe. The electrically assisted 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder makes a total of 375 horsepower (280 kilowatts) and 470 pound-feet (637 Newton-meters). The 17-kilowatt-hour battery provides an estimated 25 miles (40 kilometers) of electric driving range. The vehicle can tow 6,000 pounds (2,720 kilograms).
