2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee | Dixon, IL

After decades in production, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee is still the most trusted name in off-road SUVs. If you are considering purchasing a new SUV for your daily commutes and some off-the-beaten-path adventure, check out the 2022 Grand Cherokee at Ken Nelson CDJR.

Here are just some of the new features for the 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee, now in its fifth generation.

New 4xe Model

This year introduces a new 4xe model, marking the first-ever electrified Grand Cherokee. You’ll also appreciate the new 5.7-liter engine, potent enough to deliver 7,200 pounds of max towing (that’s a segment-best).

Three 4×4 Systems

Choose from among three 4×4 systems: Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, or Quadra-Drive II, as well as a class-exclusive Quadra-Lift air suspension with (for the first time) electronic semi-active damping. This results in a segment-best ground clearance of 11.3 inches and water fording up to 24 inches.

Infotainment Technology

Tech-savvy drivers in Dixon will like the brand-new Uconnect 5 infotainment technology that operates five times as fast as the outgoing model, delivered via a cutting-edge 10.1-inch display. Need to keep back-seat passengers occupied? Check out the available rear entertainment displays with built in Amazon Fire TV.

Additional Highlights

A few more highlights of the 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee to consider: It has more than 110 advanced safety and security technologies. You can get the luxurious Summit Reserve trim with a 19-speaker McIntoch audio system and Palermo leather. It boasts 144.6 cubic feet of total passenger volume.
