Yesterday, we brought you a look at the all-new, two-row 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Rather than pummel you with loads of details yesterday, we just looked at the basic features of the new SUV – including the new 4xe models.
Today, we begin looking at the finer details, starting with the interior features of the 2022 Grand Cherokee. This new Jeep comes packed with luxury and premium technology, and not just in the most expensive trim levels. At the same time, the top-of-the-line Summit Reserve models introduce levels of luxury that we haven’t seen from the Grand Cherokee in the past.
As a reminder, when the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee goes on sale later this year, it will be offered in five basic trim lines – Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit. The Summit Reserve isn’t its own trim level, but that configuration is the ultimate luxury package right now, so we will look at that as well.
The company has only shared pictures of higher end models, all of which we have included below.
2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Seats
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo comes with cloth upholstery on a power 8-way adjustable driver’s seat, a manually adjustable passenger’s seat and a folding rear seat. You can add heated front seats with the Lux Tech Group. (All available seat images show the Summit-level seats)
When you step up to the Grand Cherokee Limited, you get Capri leather, both front seats have full power adjustment with power lumbar adjustment, heated front seats and heated rear outboard seats. If you add the Lux Tech Group to the Limited, you also get perforated Capri leather and ventilated front seats.
The off-road-ready Grand Cherokee Trailhawk features unique vinyl-and-Capri leather seats with suede inserts. The front seats have power adjustment including lumbar and they are both heated and ventilated in standard form. The rear outboard seats are also heated.
The Overland trim level starts with perforated Nappa leather-trimmed seats with smooth Nappa leather bolsters. This package comes with 8-way power front seats with lumbar adjustment, heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear outboard seats. If you add the Lux Tech Group to the Overland, you get adjustable length front row thigh cushions, 12-way power adjustable front seats and the seat-back massage function.
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit comes with perforated Nappa leather-trimmed seats with quilted Nappa leather bolsters. The front seats have 12-way power adjustment with adjustable thigh cushions, seat-back massage and they are both heated and ventilated. The rear outboard seats are heated and if you add on the Reserve package, they are ventilated as well.
In short, every model aside from the base Laredo comes with leather, every new Grand Cherokee comes with a power driver’s seat and most trim levels come with heated and ventilated seats.
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most tech-savvy vehicle in the segment, with every trim level coming standard with a configurable 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster and either an 8.4- or 10.1-inch infotainment system screen running the latest UConnect 5 software.
The Grand Cherokee Laredo comes standard with the 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen with AM/FM radio, Aux/USB input, integrated voice command with Bluetooth, voice text reply, wireless Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay, HD radio, Amazon Alexa compatible, SiriusXM 360L, Firmware OTA and dual phone connectivity. The Laredo comes with a 6-speaker sound system with 2.5-inch tweeters, two front-door 6×9-inch full-range speakers and two rear-door 6.5-inch full-range speakers.
When you move up to the Limited trim level, you get the same 8.4-inch UConnect 5 touchscreen system and the same 6-speaker system, but it adds active noise cancellation. You can also add the Entertainment Group and get the 10.1-inch touchscreen with navigation and the Alpine 9-speaker audio system with a 506-watt amplifier.
The off-road-ready Grand Cherokee Trailhawk comes with a more elaborate version of the 8.4-inch system, adding navigation, SiriusXM Guardian, SiriusXM Traffic, SiriusXM Travel Link and TomTom navigation. The Trailhawk also comes standard with the 9-speaker Alpine system and if you add the Entertainment Group, you also get the 10.1-inch screen.
The 2022 Overland package comes with the same standard infotainment and sound system as the Trailhawk. The Overland can also be upgraded with the Entertainment Group, which adds the 10.1-inch screen, but in this trim level, you also get the premium McIntosh high-performance audio sound system with 19 speakers including a 10-inch subwoofer and 17-channel, 950-watt amplifier.
Finally, if you buy a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit, it will come standard with the 10.1-inch touchscreen and all of the connectivity features mentioned above, including navigation, device access and radio sources. The Summit models come standard with the 9-speaker Alpine system, but you can get the 19-speaker McIntosh system as a standalone option. Also, if you opt for the Summitt Reserve, the 19-speaker system is standard.
Other Interior Features
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available with some slick interior features which are not standard on any trim level, or are they included with the groups mentioned above.
The new Grand Cherokee is the first vehicle in the segment to offer a 10.25-inch touchscreen on the passenger’s side of the dashboard, optional on Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit models.
The rear seat entertainment system adds a 10.1-inch touchscreen on the back of each of the front seats with USB/HDMI input ports, FireTV for Auto and dedicated headphones for each. This system is optional on Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit models.
The digital rearview mirror is a great piece of technology. First introduced on the Ram 1500 TRX, this slick feature came to the Jeep brand with the Grand Cherokee L and Wagoneer and now the two-row Grand Cherokee. The digital mirror is part of the Lux Tech Group on Limited, Trailhawk and Overland models. In the Summit models, it is part of the ProTech Group.
The ProTech Group also adds the 10-inch, full color head-up display (HUD) on Overland and Summit models, so between the mirror and the HUD, the ProTech Group is likely to be a popular one with those folks buying a Summit model.
Finally, the Active Driving Assist system – which is a fancy autonomous cruise control system – is standard on Summit models and optional on Overland models as part of the ProTech Group.
