2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe

Serving Fairfax, VA

In Fairfax, the midsize Jeep Grand Cherokee has been a popular choice for SUV shoppers. Last year, this premium two-row model received a next-generation update, and for the 2023 model year, it has some additional improvements. Meanwhile, the Grand Cherokee 4xe was introduced last year as a plug-in hybrid version of the Grand Cherokee. Our Farrish Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM team frequently fields questions about the key differences between these two models, and we're here to help you learn more today.


Performance-wise, the Grand Cherokee offers two gas engine options across its trims, while the Grand Cherokee 4xe only has one engine available. The base gas engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 293 horsepower and is available with rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive. The Grand Cherokee's other powertrain is a 357-horsepower V8, which is only offered as an option for the Overland and Summit trims. Meanwhile, the 2023 Grand Cherokee 4xe comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder plug-in hybrid unit that generates 375 horsepower. Both the V8 and 4xe powertrains come with standard four-wheel drive.


Visually, it can be challenging to tell the 2023 Grand Cherokee apart from the Grand Cherokee 4xe. Both models feature the recognizable boxy shape with sophisticated pinstripe accents on the square wheel wells, lower doors, and hood. They also have short, wide grilles with rectangular design elements, combined with rectangular headlights, a prominent lower fascia, and square-like ports for the fog lights. The two models also have up to 21-inch wheels, trailering equipment, tow hooks, rain-sensing wipers, heated and power-folding mirrors, all-terrain tires, and roof rails.


When it comes to features, both the Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee 4xe offer luxury and innovation with rugged capabilities. Many of the 2023 Grand Cherokee's features are shared with the Grand Cherokee 4xe, including a 10.1-inch central display screen, a digital driver's panel, a night vision camera, front-row memory settings, a four-zone auto climate control system, a head-up display, heated front, and rear seats, numerous assistive driver's technologies, a premium audio system, ambient lighting, leather seats, a navigation system, and more.
