The new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is all about options and flexibility of choice. That is why it comes with two great engine options. The entry level trim of the new Jeep Cherokee L comes standard with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that puts out 257lb-ft of torque and delivers 290 HP to your wheels. The engine is great for city driving and an excellent choice if you enjoy smooth and silent drives.
A stronger 5.7-liter Hemi with 357 HP and 390lb-ft is also offered. The 5.7-liter V8 is significantly more powerful, and has a fantastic exhaust note when pushed hard. The high-torque Hemi also has a remarkable towing capacity and can weigh up to a whopping 7,200 pounds. The engine is great for heavy-duty towing and off-roading applications.
Both engine configurations offer either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive (4WD) systems and come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. While the SUV is definitely capable on road, it’s just as dominating when you take it off-road thanks to the multiple different 4WD hardware included in it.
The Lower trims come equipped with Jeep's Quadra-Trac I system, a single-speed transfer case that reacts to tire slip and directs the entire torque to the wheel with the best traction. Overland trims come standard with Quadra-Trac II, which features a low range gear reduction and a conventional two-speed transfer case. The top trims also come with the Quadra-Lift air suspension system.
