The automotive company of the Stellantis group has presented the fifth generation of its most awarded SUV ever.

Luxury and comfort aboard a Grand Cherokee have never been lacking.

Over the years, Jeep has managed to perfect the car more and more and make it as comfortable as possible. The fifth generation is housed in a new architecture, and a new plug-in hybrid propulsion system.

The ability to travel off-road roads is absolutely there, thanks also to a totally safe dynamic behaviour. Electrification is an aspect that we can no longer ignore in the automotive world, and Jeep has decided to bring this philosophy to its largest SUV as well.

For this reason, the Jeep Grand Cherokee can also boast of a plug-in system for driving comfortably in all-electric mode.

It is a technology that has won awards over the years in sales, and which has therefore also been shaped on the large SUV.

Also this year, we recall that Jeep wanted to present its all-electric version of the Avengers, the brand's first all-electric SUV.

As for the great iconic car of the Jeep brand, the Grand Cherokee, over 7 million units have been sold since its debut. We will therefore see how the reception will be for this first electrified version.

In any case, we are talking about an SUV intended for the global market without privileged areas, precisely because it manages to adapt perfectly to every need of every type of motorist.

Entering better than the description of the car, using only the electric power supply, you can even travel 50 km in the city. This is a figure that could be evaluated as "limited", but we must think of the great mass of the car, and therefore of the high efficiency that the engineers have reserved for this new version.

The overall range is 700 km, and the car is more sustainable than previous versions. However, this does not affect performance, thanks to acceleration times from 0 to 100 km per hour of just 6 seconds and 3 tenths.

These data are thanks to the combined 380 horsepower and over 630 Newton meters of torque. At the base of all the electric propulsion, we have two electric motors with a 400 V battery pack, while the turbo engine is a 2-liter four-cylinder with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

There are different driving modes, starting from the hybrid to the electric one, or the one that allows you to give priority to the petrol engine, thus saving the battery for subsequent uses.

In this way, it is also possible to optimize the choice of driving modes on board this large SUV. The car is impressive in size, with a length of 491 cm and a width of 215 cm with the mirrors open.

The wheelbase has increased by 5 cm compared to the previous generation, almost three meters in length.

Looking at the car externally, you immediately notice the new and distinctive features of the Jeep course. The roof profile has been lowered to improve aerodynamics and efficiency, without excessively sacrificing cargo space.

The lower waistline and larger windows allow for a brighter passenger compartment and greater visibility.

The iconic seven-slot grille is now wider, incorporating a radar and new driver assistant features.

For the first time, 21-inch alloy wheels are also available, for even sportier performance in mixed driving. Seven new colors have been added to this car, to allow for a wider and more complete choice of body color. The new colors are Diamond Black, Bright White, Velvet red, Midnight Sky, Baltic Grey, Silver Zynith, Rocky Mountain.

Climbing aboard the car, you immediately notice how this fifth generation has achieved some important innovations in terms of comfort and quality.

The vents for the climate control system are now slimmer and newly designed, as well as a new center console and 10-inch screens for the instrument cluster and the same size (approximately) for the interactive display.

There are also new front seats adjustable in 16 positions, also equipped with lumbar support and memory function. In the first two rows of seats, the heating-ventilation function is also available with three configuration levels.

An absolute novelty is the presence of customizable LED lights in the passenger compartment, with day/night settings.

No information has been released regarding the price level, but they will certainly be slightly higher than those of the previous generation.
