2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Specs, Price, MPG and Reviews

The main changes: Inflation is real. The two- and three-row gasoline Grand Cherokees get significant price increases for 2023, although Jeep kept prices the same for the 4xe plug-in hybrid. Also important: the rugged Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is now only offered as a more expensive 4xe. Otherwise, there is little change from 2022.

Pricing: The base two-row petrol Laredo with rear-wheel drive starts at $42,830 (all prices include destination, all-wheel drive is $2,000 more). That’s a $2,710 increase from 2022, and other two- and three-row gasoline models get similar increases. Colors ranged from $395 to $495 (Jeep charges for all body colors except white). The 2023 base 4xe starts at $61,660.

Which should you buy, 2022 or 2023? For the 4xe, go for a 2023 model. For gas versions, save money on essentially the same SUV if you can find a 2022. As of this writing, there are still 2,231 new 2022s listed nationwide by dealers on Cars.com. Note that this refers to the new-generation 2022 Grand Cherokees, not the old two-row model that was renamed the Grand Cherokee WK for 2022 and sold for a time alongside the new model.

Jeep’s venerable Grand Cherokee is taking a break from changes for 2023 after completing a full redesign and expansion into a lineup of SUVs for the 2022 model year. The new generation of larger Grand Cherokees first broke cover with the launch of the 2021 Grand Cherokee L, a new three-row version of Jeep’s long-running two-row midsize SUV. The L spearheaded the new design, advanced safety and convenience technologies, and added features that later came to the two-row model for 2022. The brand also introduced the Grand Cherokee’s first plug-in hybrid line, the two-row 4xe, late in the 2022 model year.

After all that, the changes for 2023 are minimal other than inflation, with four-digit price increases for conventional gasoline Grand Cherokees. However, prices for 2023 are the same for the 4xe.

Other changes

Each version of the 2023 Grand Cherokee continues to offer trim levels that compete in price and escalating luxury with a wide range of midsize SUVs, from relatively affordable mainstream-brand trucks to luxury cars. There is only one major change in trim configurations: the Trailhawk off-road trim is now only available as a more expensive 4xe PHEV. Jeep is also celebrating the Grand Cherokee’s three-decade run with a 30Th Anniversary Edition 4xe, which adds $4,700 in goodies to the base model, including towbars, 20-inch black wheels, black leather seats, a video rearview mirror, a 360-degree camera system, a 10.1-inch touchscreen with navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and premium audio.

In other 2023 trims, the 4x’s gray exterior accents become gloss black, and the Limited and Overland trim levels get a standard 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen system with navigation. Two audio upgrades are now offered a la carte: the nine-speaker Alpine system is a stand-alone option for the Limited trim level, and the 19-speaker McIntosh system is a one-off for the Overland and Summit.

Under the hood

The base gasoline engine is a 293-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission; it puts out 260 pound-feet of torque and is rated to tow up to 6,200 pounds. Optional or standard on higher trim levels is a 357-hp, 5.7-liter V-8; of torque is 390 pounds-feet, and it can tow up to 7,200 pounds. The V-6 is available with rear- or all-wheel drive; V-8 is 4WD only. Jeep offers three 4WD systems.

The 4xes powertrain is an all-wheel-drive system with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, two electric motors and a 17.3 kilowatt-hour battery pack. It comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a two-speed gearbox. Combined output is 375 hp and 470 pound-feet of torque, and it’s rated to tow up to 6,000 pounds. The 2023 4xes range hasn’t been released yet, but Jeep says it will match the 2022 EPA’s estimate of 25 miles of all-electric range.
