The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee / 2022 Jeep Commander is a mid-size SUV manufactured by an American Jeep manufacturer. The 2022 Grand Cherokee will initially have a choice of two engines. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, regardless of what is installed. The main models of the Grand Cherokee is RWD, while the existing systems of AWD and 4WD are offered to complete the driver transition options.
The third-row seats are upright, with a cargo area of 17.2 cubic feet in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Lowering the third row will increase cargo capacity by 46.9 cubic feet. When the third and second rows are folded, the maximum load area is 84.6 cubic feet. All seats in the standard two-row Grand Cherokee should offer more cargo space in the upright position, but the maximum capacity may be less than the L model. The Grand Cherokee L models with V-6 engines can weigh up to 6,200 pounds. Those with the V-8 increase the load-carrying capacity to 7,200 pounds. The standard Grand Cherokee should weigh a similar amount.
The Jeep 2022 Grand Cherokee AWD system is called the Quadra-Trac I, which is an active setting that distributes torque when wheel displacement is detected. Quadra-Trac I can send full torque to the front or rear axle depending on the conditions. The straight 4WD starts with the Quadra-Trac II, which has a two-speed transmission with a low-speed gear ratio of 2.72: 1. The Quadra-Trac II can distribute power between the front and rear axles depending on the movement of the wheel. The Quadra-Drive II Grand Cherokee should increase 4WD capability with an electronically controlled rear limited sliding differential. A high-tech system can pre-calculate low-gravity cases and distribute torque accordingly.
