There is no doubt that a Jeep® can handle itself in the wild, no matter how challenging conditions are. Now, an electrified Jeep® is proving it’s a capable eco-friendly beast for every adventure. The 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe took home multiple wins, including the top honor, from the Northwest Automotive Press Association.
The well-equipped, innovative SUV dominated at the 27th annual Mudfest competition with wins in the categories of Overall, Electrified Utility Vehicle, and Mid- and Full-Size Family, a first in the event’s tenure.
“The 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe marks a new era in the SUV market,” says NWAPA President John Vincent of U.S. News & World Report. “It’s a no-compromise vehicle that blends Jeep®’s legendary off-road capability with outstanding on-road manners, impressive fuel economy and the ability to travel on electricity alone.”
To determine the winning status of the 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe, the NWAPA members evaluated 20 vehicles from 17 brands over two days in Shelton, Washington, at Ridge Motorsports Park. Vehicles vied for placement in eight categories, including Extreme Capability, Compact and Midsize Luxury.
“Winning the 2022 Northwest Outdoor Vehicle of the Year, the Grand Cherokee, now with electrified 4xe technology, leads the Jeep® brand toward its vision of Zero Emission Freedom,” said Jim Morrison, vice president and head of Jeep® brand North America.
