Electric Vehicle Off-Road

One thing that may be concerning, is taking the electric vehicle off-roading. However, according to Jeep high-voltage electronics are sealed and waterproof. The Trail Rated Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is capable of water fording up to 24 inches. This is good to know, If I were to put that much into an off-road vehicle, I wouldn’t want to hold back on it.

As great as all-electric may be, However, I never thought in my day we would be phasing out gas engines. Most manufacturers are pushing for an all-electric lineup of vehicles.  I never thought I would see it happen to Jeep. I thought Jeep would want all the power the Gasoline engines give them.
