The SIM card that comes in Jeep is from AT&T and they charge anywhere from $20 per GB of wi-fi hotspot per month. Whereas, being Verizon employee, I get unlimited data for $25 a month. Is it possible to swap the SIM card that came pre-installed?

Nope
It's an eSim like the new iPhone and Apple Watch and iPads have.
No way to change carrier.

Actually you can change carriers with an esim. I was researching it a couple days ago.
Heres one site that describes esims.

In the past, you couldn’t use an AT&T phone on the Verizon network because one used GSM while the other used CDMA. Is this still an issue?

Well, in Canada it is:
20GB Connected Car Data Plan for 12 Months $200/year

So you get like 1.6GB a month for that kind of money lol. FUNNY!

This is interesting. So if you can change providers from AT&T to say T mobile by adding a line, or transferring a line to the esim, could be cheaper than what AT&T would charge. Where would one find the esim imei number in the UConnect 8.4?

It's all LTE now.

CDMA is being decommissioned.

To get IMEI in Dodge:
Defrost, and Temp Up and Temp Down the same time.

Assuming Jeep would be the same?

Exactly. That's the whole reason I want to move out of AT&T

Got a question, so i live in Canada with Telus, I have unlimited (20gb) with my provider, not that Telus support ESIM, is that mean I can add the jeep to my plan?

Wait, is it unlimited with throttling at 20gb? Or just 20gb? Cause that ain’t unlimited

Trottle, but 20 gb, I'm happy with this. Lol

Yes I have 20 gb unlimited then Trottle with Telus.
Gotcha! I have 22gb then throttling with ATT and I’ve gone over the limit many times. They send me a text saying I may be throttled. I usually don’t have any issues with unbearably slow speeds even after hitting that limit. I think they just want to have the option for high-congestion areas.
