Jeep just released the official list prices for the 2022 Grand Cherokee line. These are very likely the prices people will pay, at least until the new-car shortage eases up.
Buyers will have to pay an additional $1,795 destination charge in the continental United States, or (Canadian) $2,095 in Canada. (In the rest of this article, Canadian prices will be listed as “C$”; $1 USD currently equivalent to C$1.24 CAD. The Canadian destination charge is therefore actually less than the American one.)
The Grand Cherokee Laredo starts at $37,390 (C$51,545). This includes adaptive cruise, active lane management, LED exterior lighting, leather-wrapped heated steering, heated front seats, a 10.25 inch digital driver cluster, and Uconnect 5. The Canadian price is higher partly because it includes the Quadra-Trac I four wheel drive setup, with a single-speed transfer case; that’s another $2,000 in the US.
The Limited starts at $43,710 (C$59,045) and adds leather seats, heated steering wheel, heated seats in both rows, remote start, and a power liftgate with adjustable height. Again, Americans must pay $2,000 for 4×4, but it’s included in the Canadian model. Indeed, all Canadian Grand Cherokees appear to have 4×4 included.
The luxury Overland starts at $53,505 (C$68,045); the 4×4 versions now use Quadra-Trac II. Overland adds Nappa leather, An-Teak trim, ventilated front seats, navigation, ambient lighting with color choice, length-adjustable front row seat cushions, hands-free liftgate, and dual pane sunroof. Buyers can get a Trail-Rated Off-Road Group with skid plates, limited slip rear differential, 18-inch wheels, and all-terrain tires.
The Summit starts at $57,365 (C$73,545), with quilted seats, Absolute Oak wood, 16-way adjustable front row seats with memory, lumbar, and massage, and extra safety features such as Active Driving Assist, drowsy driver detection, and surround-view camera. The Summit Reserve ($63,365 or C$78,040) adds standard 4×4, hand-wrapped quilted Palermo leather, open-pore walnut, ventilated second row seats, 21-inch wheels, 950-watt McIntosh audio, and other amenities.
Finally, the offroad specialist Trailhawk has returned; it comes only as a 4×4 with low range, Selec-Speed Control, and Quadra-Drive II, and starts at $51,275 (C$63,645). Other features include electronic limited slip differential in back, air suspension, skid plates, tow hooks, sway bar disconnect, and special front and rear fascias which result in a best in class approach and departure angle, along with best in class water crossing (24 inches) and ground clearance (11.3 inches).
The Laredo, Altitude, and Limited appear to be V6 only, while the Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit are all sold with either a V6 or V8. The Altitude starts at $41,945 (C$55,040). The Hemi adds $3,295 (C$3,495) to the price.
The surprise is two-fold: one, that all Canadian models are now apparently 4x4s, and two, that the Hemi V8 appears to be limited to the more exclusive models.
