“It’s fitting for the Jeep brand to be debuting its newest unique Grand Cherokee 4xe in New York, as it’s been our largest consumer market for Jeep SUV owners who want legendary 4×4 capability, superior on-road handling and premium styling,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “The stunning High Altitude appearance package and the new premium Hydro Blue exterior paint option gives the Grand Cherokee 4xe a customized look for those who want the peak of capability, performance and luxury with unique exterior style.”

The High Altitude Package adds premium 21-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels, Gloss Black accents and badging, roof rails and a unique seven-slot grille to the Summit and Summit Reserve models.

The new exterior paint option, Hydro Blue Pearl Coat, is available on Trailhawk, Overland, Summit and Summit Reserve models for both two-row, three-row and 4xe Grand Cherokee models. The High Altitude Package will be available on Grand Cherokee Summit 4xe, Summit Reserve 4xe, Grand Cherokee L Summit and Summit Reserve models in the second half of 2022.

Both Summit and Summit Reserve 4×4 models come standard with the Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension, Quadra-Drive II system with rear electronic limited slip differential and Selec-Terrain traction management system.
