New Jeep® Wrangler 4xe and All-new Jeep Grand Cherokee Win ‘Adventure Vehicle of the Year’ Awards from GearJunkie

Jeep® Wrangler 4xe, the first-ever electrified Jeep Wrangler, wins ‘Best 4×4’

Auburn Hills, Mich. – Looking for adventure? Look no further than the Jeep® brand’s new SUVs, which took not one but two “Adventure Vehicles of the Year” honors. According to GearJunkie, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the ‘Best 4×4’ and the Jeep Grand Cherokee is the ‘Best SUV,’ in its annual Adventure Vehicle of the Year awards.

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe, which delivers 49 MPGe and 21 miles of all-electric range via its 375-horsepower, 470-lb.-ft. of torque plug-in-hybrid powertrain, impressed GearJunkie editors with its off-road capability, impressive power and quiet, high-torque powertrain.

“This plug-in hybrid is very much a Trail Rated Jeep, and a near-silent and torquey electric drive is a ton of fun off road,” said GearJunkie motors editor Bryon Dorr.

The all-new fifth-generation Grand Cherokee lineup, which for the first time ever includes a three-row option with the new Jeep Grand Cherokee L, wowed GearJunkie editors with its capability and comfort.

“We got behind the wheel of every trim level, drove both the V-6 and V-8, and experienced both the two- and three-row versions of the all-new Grand Cherokee,” said Dorr. “We also got a chance to tow with it, drive hard on curvy mountain roads, and even do a little rock crawling. Needless to say, this new full-size SUV from Jeep is ready for adventure.”

“These awards epitomize why our customers love the electrified Wrangler 4xe and all-new fifth-generation Grand Cherokee so much,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President and Head of Jeep Brand North America. “They’re both best-in-class 4×4 SUVs that deliver legendary Jeep capability and that unique adventurous spirit that only comes from a Jeep SUV.”
