  • Overview

    Did you know that Jeep initially slated the Grand Cherokee to replace the Cherokee? Making a grand debut in 1992, the Grand Cherokee crashed through the window of the convention center at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and instantly earned its place in the Jeep lineup. However, Cherokee sales also soared, and the two models became long-term companions in the Jeep lineup. This companionship and heritage of legendary capability are what we find today with the pairing of the all-new 2022 Grand Cherokee and the stunning 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK.

    While the all-new 2022 Grand Cherokee introduces a three-row layout to the lineup along with many other upgrades, the 2022 Grand Cherokee WK stays true to its roots by offering the ultimate practicality and adventurous capability. The Grand Cherokee might have debuted in the early 1990s, but it didn't truly flourish until 2011 when Jeep introduced the fourth generation of the Grand Cherokee, codenamed WK. Laden with exceptional four-wheel-drive technology and a host of features, the Grand Cherokee WK marked a new chapter for the award-winning SUV––a chapter defined by the balance of sophisticated on-road performance and heart-pumping off-road capability.

    That balance is once again perfectly accomplished in the 2022 Grand Cherokee WK, which Jeep promises has "a legacy like no other." Continuing the model's award-winning design, the Grand Cherokee WK is a proven take on the classic SUV. It delivers an instantly recognizable exterior, a luxurious interior, and a suite of cutting-edge technology that make it one of the most opulent and distinguished SUVs on the road. In addition, its starting price of $37,375 makes it more affordable than the all-new 2022 Grand Cherokee, the perfect buy for the true adventurer.

    An Award-Winning Engine

    An award-winning SUV deserves an award-winning engine, right? Jeep thinks so and equips the Grand Cherokee WK with its most popular powertrain––the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. The Pentastar is no stranger to the Jeep lineup after making its debut in 2011. Since then, the engine has earned a coveted place on the Wards "10 Best Engine" list numerous times, a feat that's driven demand and, along with the engine's remarkable power, led to over 10 million units produced.

    What does this mean for the 2022 Grand Cherokee WK? Incredible power and efficiency. The Pentastar, which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, churns out 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque to make the Grand Cherokee WK quick to accelerate and more than capable of towing loads up to 6,200 pounds. This power and capability don't come at the cost of efficiency, and that's thanks to the Pentastar's Electronic Stop/Start Technology. When the Grand Cherokee WK stops, the feature automatically shuts off fuel delivery to maximize efficiency. Once your foot moves to the accelerator pedal, the system seamlessly brings the engine to life. Overall, the Grand Cherokee WK is rated for up to 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway.

    Jeep gives you more control over the Grand Cherokee's efficiency and performance with the available Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. The system allows you to select between different drive modes based on the condition, adjusting the engine performance, torque distribution, and transmission shift patterns to optimize traction in any conditions. This lets you navigate snow-covered roads, torrential downpours, sandy trails, and winding backroads with confidence and agility.

    Jeep 4x4 Options and Features

    Staying true to its roots, the 2022 Grand Cherokee WK delivers impressive off-road capability and on-road refinement courtesy of Jeep's renowned four-wheel-drive technology. The Quadra Trac I system is what many call Jeep's all-wheel-drive system because it actively monitors the wheels for slippage. Once it detects loss of traction, the system sends all the available torque to the tire or tires that need it most.

    If you're looking for more capability behind the wheel, you'll find it when you opt for the Grand Cherokee WK with the Quadra-Trac II four-wheel-drive system. The two-speed transfer case features a low gear ratio that gives the Grand Cherokee WK a wider range of performance that's ideal for navigating technical terrain or crawling over rocks. Along with this wider range, the Quadra-Trac II system constantly monitors traction and distributes power between the front and rear axles as needed to maximize the Grand Cherokee WK's grip on the road.

    Upgrading to the Quadra-Trac II system adds tools like Hill Descent Control to the Grand Cherokee WK, extending its capability even further. For example, let's say you're navigating a steep descent in the mountains or on the trail when a little extra control would be ideal. Instead of driving with trepidation, you can navigate the descent with confidence as Hill Descent Control monitors your speed, braking, and throttle to ensure your descent is smooth. If it senses that the SUV is moving too fast down, it will automatically apply the brakes so that you remain in complete control at all times.

    A Digital Cabin

    Keeping you connected, informed, and safe is a top priority for Jeep, and it shows on models like the 2022 Grand Cherokee WK. Jeep makes it easy to stay connected and informed with an expansive suite of digital displays that put all the information you need within view or reach from the moment you settle into the driver's seat. These displays start with the 7-inch reconfigurable driver information digital cluster display that puts your speed, mileage, fuel level, audio controls, navigational cues, and more in a crisp display behind the steering wheel.

    As you look to the center of the Grand Cherokee WK's dashboard, you'll find an expansive, 8.4-inch touchscreen display that's home to Jeep's renowned Uconnect 4C NAV infotainment system. Unlike its competitors, which distinguish their trims with various-sized displays, you'll find the same 8.4-inch display across the lineup, and that speaks volumes to Jeep's commitment to giving its drivers the best technology available regardless of budget. From the display, you have access to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto integration and the navigation system, which offers 3D graphics for a more intuitive user experience.

    Jeep Safety Systems

    The Grand Cherokee WK's technology extends from its digital displays and connectivity features to its safety and driver-assist tools. The Pro-Tech I suite comes standard on every trim and equips the Grand Cherokee WK with a ParkView Rear Back Up Camera that gives you an expansive view behind the SUV and makes it easier to navigate any area in reverse. In addition, tools like Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection equip the SUV with an extra set of eyes, while the ParkSense Rear Park Assist makes it easier to park the SUV in any area.

    For next-level safety and security, opt for the Pro-Tech II safety suite. The suite outfits the Grand Cherokee WK with rain-sensing windshield wipers that automatically turn on when they sense rain on the windshield, optimizing your visibility without input from you. The suite also adds Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, which works with tools like Advanced Brake Assist to monitor the road ahead for potential collisions and can bring the SUV to a controlled stop. Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist makes it easy to navigate the roadway and stay safely in your lane.

    While ParkSense Rear Park Assist is undoubtedly helpful, the Pro-Tech II suite extends this feature with Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist to take the guesswork out of any parking situation. You'll also find advanced driver-assist tools like Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go. This tool will dramatically improve any time spent on the highway as it constantly monitors the flow of traffic and adjusts the Grand Cherokee WK's cruising speed as needed. It is even capable of bringing the SUV to a complete stop and then safely reaccelerating, making it ideal for stop-and-go traffic as well.
