The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Anniversary Edition comes standard with the automaker’s latest plug-in hybrid engine. The setup, which consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, dual electric motors and a 17.3 kWh battery, returns a combined fuel economy of 23 mpg in gas-electric hybrid mode and 56 MPGe on battery alone.

Such efficiency doesn’t come at the expense of performance either, as the engine makes an impressive total of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of total torque. Like the rest of the 4xe range, the 30 pack has an electric range of 25 miles.

9/10 Adaptive air suspension

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 30th Anniversary Edition features an adaptive air suspension, which should make it feel smooth and composed on the road by reducing vibrations to a minimum and providing a high level of ride comfort.

The suspension is height-adjustable and allows you to raise the vehicle to provide up to 10.9 inches of ground clearance when heading off-road, which should help clear challenging terrain without sacrificing ride comfort. Off-road enthusiasts will also appreciate the Quadra-Trac II full-time 4WD system, which uses a two-speed transmission to help them navigate any course.

Visually, the newest member of the Grand Cherokee 4xes has the rugged look the capable Trailhawk is known for and is designed to be just as handsomely efficient. Which leaves no doubt that it can handle whatever is thrown at it.

The modified front fascia features blue tow hooks similar to the Trailhawk trim and a blacked-out version of Jeep’s iconic seven-slot grill, while a dual exhaust system highlights the body-colored rear fascia. New 20-inch black wheels, special edition badging and skid plates protecting the floor hybrid battery are also part of the package. Also notable is that the Grand Cherokee 4xe 30th Anniversary Edition can drive through 2 feet of water without issue, as Jeep took care to seal the hybrid battery.

Like other 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe features, the 30th package includes a digital rearview mirror, replacing the traditional glass rearview mirror.
