The all-new 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe is the first electric Grand Cherokee—and already it’s making big impressions. The rugged SUV dominated the annual Mudfest competition organized by the Northwest Automotive Press Association, earning it the title of Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year.
“The 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe marks a new era in the SUV market,” says NWAPA President John Vincent of U.S. News & World Report. “It’s a no-compromise vehicle that blends Jeep®’s legendary off-road capability with outstanding on-road manners, impressive fuel economy and the ability to travel on electricity alone.”
The all-new Grand Cherokee 4xe was also named the top Electrified Utility Vehicle in both the mid- and full-size family vehicle categories, marking the first time in the awards’ 27-year history that any vehicle wins those awards and the overall title in the same year. It also meant that Jeep® was the winner of nearly half of the vehicle categories.
How was the Grand Cherokee 4xe tested? Members of NWAPA spent two days testing 20 vehicles from 17 different manufacturers both on and off the road, including at The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington.
At Motor Inn of Spirit Lake, we’re not surprised to see Jeep® performing so well — but it’s always nice to get industry recognition. See for yourself what makes the Grand Cherokee so good by visiting us in Spirit Lake, Iowa!
