Forget Gas Stations
With the new Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 2023 at your side, you can simply do away with the gas stations, provided you are not going for a long drive. And incidentally, you may be able to continue this for months. Sounds astonishing, right?
For typical daily commutes between the workplace and home, you will be good to go with a normal 240-volt charging connection to the 4xe’s 7.2-kW onboard charger, which can store up the roughly 14.0-kWh battery in around 2.5 hours. In case you decide to plug it into a standard wall socket, the charge could take almost eight to 15 hours, depending upon the home’s outlet.
Moreover, you can go green by helping the world in reducing the global carbon footprint. It can be fairly said that the way consciousness for zero-fuel drives is surging by leaps and bounds along with the sharp increase in the popularity of EVs and plug-in-hybrid cars, the 30th anniversary edition of the Jeep Grand Cherokee can actually strike gold.
However, the fact that the car comes with an added burden of a sky-high price-tag, might just become a party spoiler. Especially taking the fact into consideration that now automakers are aiming to provide affordable EVs despite the cost of electric battery rising upwards.

Unlock Off-Road Adventures
For the ones who absolutely love to embark on off-road adventures, the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe hits right into the bull’s eye. It has been masterfully built in a manner which perfectly syncs with your desires of going on an adrenaline overdose in the form of an off-road adventure. This is another very significant reason which makes the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 2023, a great choice.
However, the pocket-pinch for this gem of a car is quite high and most likely to burn many pockets.
