The Jeep family is growing in 2022 with the reintroduction of Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, as well as the addition of the all-new Grand Cherokee, which follows last year’s Grand Cherokee L debut. In addition, the 4x plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant is now available on two models (Grand Cherokee and Wrangler) with a likely expansion to other jeeps in the future. For the entire range, car technology is improved with Uconnect 5 telematics, larger monitors of the 10.1- and 10.25-inch variants for infotainment and digital clusters, respectively, and the implementation of FireTV.
The Jeep Cherokee will be back in 2022. However, no information about the changes to the Jeep’s compact crossover SUV was available as we prepared this article for publication.
Redesigned 2017 and renewed 2020, 2022 Jeep Compass gets a number of additional updates, including a new trim level. Latitude LUX is placed in the middle of the lineup, after the Sport and Latitude trims and before Limited and Trailhawk.
In terms of design, both front-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive (4WD) versions have a revised front panel and redesigned headlights and taillights. But the most important changes are within the cabin. With fewer plastics and more upholstery, the Compass interior feels extra exclusive thanks to the newly optional 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment display and 10.25-inch digital clusters. Although the powertrains carry over, the Jeep adjusts the suspension for agility and responsiveness.
Standard safety features now include full-speed collision warning, active lane management, lane change warning, lane keeping assistance and blind-spot lane warning for intersecting traffic. New for 2022 is a Highway Assist semi-autonomous driving system, which will be available later in the production cycle.
For 2022, the Jeep Gladiator is equipped with larger infotainment screens, a standard filtration system for the cabin that removes 95 percent of the particles and a new Silver Zynith exterior paint. Gladiator Sport now has a 7-inch Uconnect 4 system. Overland, Rubicon and Mojave get an 8.4-inch infotainment screen with Uconnect 4C, navigation, an alpine sound system and keyless entry.
Although the 3-row Jeep Grand Cherokee L debuted for the 2021 model, the standard Grand Cherokee is brand new for 2022. The gas-powered V6 and V8 engines are unchanged, but a new PHEV variant joins them. Buyers can choose the Grand Cherokee 4xe on all standard 4×4 trims, excluding Laredo and Altitude trim at the entry level. However, the high-performance Grand Cherokee SRT will probably be phased out.
The new Grand Cherokee also sees improved off-road driving capabilities. The compact SUV is available with a class-exclusive swivel disconnect, and its Quadra-Lift air suspension now has electronic semi-active damping for what Jeep claims is a segment-leading 11.3-inch ground clearance.
Cherokee’s newly designed interior debuts new car technology in the form of Uconnect 5 on an available 10.1-inch infotainment screen. A segment-first 10.25-inch interactive screen for front-seat passengers is available, and rear-seat passengers get a 10.1-inch high-resolution display – all of which have FireTV capabilities.
Resurrected for 2022, Grand Wagoneer (and Wagoneer) returns to represent a high-end series for the Jeep brand. The all-new Grand Wagoneer is focused on exclusive flavors and is available in four models (Series I, Series II, Obsidian and Series III). It is the most expensive jeep with a starting price of $ 87,845 (plus a destination fee of $ 2,000). But a six-figure jeep will offer lots of nice lining.
All Grand Wagoneers are only 4WD and equipped with a 6.4-liter V8 that is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain delivers 471 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. Jeep says this is good for a class towing best rating of up to 10,000 pounds.
An adaptive air suspension provides refined driving style, which fits well with the premium interior that offers unmatched spaciousness (ie best-in-class volume), comfort (ie 4-zone climate control) and entertainment (ie 1,750 watts). , McIntosh audio with 23 speakers). With more than 120 standard and available safety and security features, Grand Wagoneer also gives you peace of mind.
The Jeep family’s baby, Renegade, is a transfer model for 2022 but with several notable changes. The small crossover is available in four models: Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk; all except Sport are only 4WD.
Equipment-level updates include an 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 Nav system as standard on Sport and Latitude, while Jeep equips Limited with a new design for the front, rear valance and 18-inch wheels. A new Altitude package adds glossy black elements to both exterior and interior.
But as much as has been added, the Jeep Renegade loses an engine choice. Jeep is releasing the previously standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder in favor of the 1.3-liter turbo-4. The horsepower values between the two are similar (180 hp and 177 hp respectively), but the smaller turbo produces more torque with 210 pound feet.
The less grand Wagoneer is no less potent. Now back as a standalone model, the all-new 2022 Wagoneer features a 5.7-liter V8 and mild hybrid eTorque driveline that produces 392 hp and 404 pounds-feet of torque. The gearbox is an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Wagoneer is available in two trim – Series I and Series II – and as a 2-wheel or 4WD model. Its standard cabin with three rows offers seating for eight, but captain’s chairs for the second row are an option. Like the Grand Wagoneer, the Wagoneer features a design style that is less tough Wrangler and more lap-of-Nappa leather luxury than competitors Ford Expedition and Chevrolet Suburban.
Standard amenities include a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, Uconnect 5 with navigation, a 10.1-inch infotainment touch screen, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, Android Auto and Apple Carplay integration, a 9-speaker Alpine sound system and a host of advanced features. driving assistance system including blind spot warning, rear crossing warning and an active lane management system.
Wrangler is a transmission model for 2022 but sees trim-specific equipment changes. The Sport and Sport S details now have a Uconnect 4 7-inch touch screen as standard, while Jeep equips the Sahara and Rubicon with an 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C screen and keyless entry. A 4.88 axle ratio on the 3.6-liter V6-equipped Wrangler Rubicons is recently available with both transmissions. On the Wrangler 4xe, blue towbars are now standard with a blue pad print added to the wheels. High Altitude 4xe has a new wheel design for 2022 and exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals. Silver Zynith is a new exterior color for the range, which replaces Billet Silver.
