Producing up to 293 net horsepower per SAE measurements, the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine block propels the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Cranking out 260 pound-feet of torque, this proprietary V-6 powerhouse can tow up to 6,200 pounds. Built on the Lambda architecture, the 2022 Kia Telluride’s 3.8-L engine barely matches the output of the 3.8-L engine. However, this Kia SUV can’t tow a trailer that’s loaded with more than 5,000 lb. In dramatic contrast, the 5.7-L HEMI engine allows the Jeep model to tow up to 7,200 lb. For its highly efficient design, the 4xe hybrid system has a respectable trailering capacity of 6,000 lb. A 400-volt battery pack and 2.0-L turbocharged engine propel the all-new Jeep PHEV model. When working at peak levels, the hybrid system yields up to 375 hp and 470 lb-ft. Additionally, the proprietary eTorque Generator/Motor supplements the innovative 4xe powerhouse.
Standard on the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and Limited, the signature Quadra-Trac I 4×4 drive system provides excellent off-road handling. Paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission from TorqueFlite, this innovative drivetrain comes with a single-speed transfer case. The high-end Overland model gets an additional speed for its transfer case on the Quadra-Trac II 4×4 drive system. Engineered to tackle the harshest off-road trails, the 2022 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk runs on the exclusive Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system. An electronic limited-slip differential on the rear axle is a major highlight of this highly responsive driveline. This Trail Rated Jeep SUV also has the Sway Bar Disconnect technology that creates meaningful improvements in the articulation of the front wheels. Semi-active damping and the Selec-Speed Control augment the off-road skills of the Trailhawk edition. Despite Having the AWD Lock Mode and Snow Mode, the 2022 Kia Telluride’s Active On-Demand All-Wheel Drive System can’t compete with any 4×4 drive systems on the 2022 Grand Cherokee. Additionally, the Kia SUV only offers four settings from the Drive Modes. You could tap into five modes from Jeep’s legendary Traction Management System.
Measuring just over 10.0 inches wide, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s Uconnect 5 multimedia touch screen has a logical interface. This updated Jeep SUV offers a class-exclusive, 10.25-inch touch screen in front of the first-row passenger. Also measuring just over 10.0 inches, dual monitors entertain the folks in the vehicle’s second row. This premium Jeep SUV boasts a standard digital cluster that occupies 10.25 inches. A 19-speaker audio system from McIntosh is another upscale technology inside this fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee. Made by Harman Kardon, the 2022 Kia Telluride’s best sound system only has ten speakers. This SUV has the Kia Connect infotainment console with a 10.25-inch touch screen. However, the illuminated Supervision Meter Cluster measures just 7.0 inches.
