So continue reading below for an insider look at the all-new Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid!

CAPABILITY

POWER THROUGH

Climb over tough obstacles and go an electrifying 0-60 mph in 6 seconds. A plug-in hybrid turbocharged engine gives the Wrangler 4xe an impressive 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of instant torque for heart-pounding performance off-road and on-road.

A 4X4 FIRST AND FOREMOST

The Wrangler 4xe system is paired with a 2.0L I4 DOHC direct-injection Turbo PHEV engine to bring out the best in already proven Jeep® Brand 4x4 capability. A 16-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, regenerative brake booster and eight-speed automatic transmission work together to send impressive amounts of power and torque to each wheel, maximizing the capability of every component. The sealed and waterproof battery pack and electronics even perform in tough conditions like fording creeks and streams up to 30 inches in depth. Preproduction model shown.

RANGE

SAY GOODBYE TO RANGE ANXIETY

Whether you want to take off-road adventure to new places or simply get around town on all-electric power, the Wrangler 4xe is ready with an EPA estimated 49 MPGe rating. E-Selec driving modes that utilize Power Routing enable you to optimize performance while eliminating range anxiety.

CHARGING MADE SIMPLE

It's easier than ever to get a charger into your home, like the simple-to-use Level II Jeep® Branded Charger. It can fully charge the Wrangler 4xe battery in approximately 2 hours versus 12 hours using the included Level I charging cable.

HYBRID TECHNOLOGY

REGENERATIVE BRAKING

This feature allows the battery to be charged when decelerating and braking. The Max Regeneration feature remaps the accelerator pedal to command more aggressive regen at low pedal positions. It allows you to slow the vehicle down without the brake pedal, but a complete stop always requires the brake pedal. It also stays selected until you turn it off.

ESAVE MODE

eSave Mode prioritizes the 2.0L engine. This saves the battery charge for later use. When power demand is low, the engine shuts off. It can also be reconfigured to increase the battery charge as well.

Can the Wrangler 4xe still go off-roading?

Absolutely! The Wrangler 4xe is still every bit a Wrangler as the gas models and still wears Jeep's Trail Rated badge. Like the gas-powered Wranglers, the 4xe features a high-strength steel frame, Dana 44 solid front and rear axles, full-time four-wheel drive with a transfer case, underbody skid plate protection, and more. The common misconception that a hybrid powertrain means less power is prominent for the Wrangler 4xe. Thanks to its hybrid powerplant, all 470 lb-ft of torque are instantly available to provide maximum control by keeping the wheels moving over rugged terrain and a quick 6-second 0-60 time. Suppose your off-road travels bring you to a deep puddle or stream. In that case, the 4xe's battery pack is placed under the rear seat for protection, the electrical connections are sealed, and the air intake is at the top of the engine bay for 30 inches of water fording capability.

What gives the Wrangler 4xe its power and efficiency?

The all-new Wrangler 4xe features two electric generators, one on the cylinder head and the other mounted in front of the transmission. A 96-cell, 17-kilowatt hour, 400-volt lithium-ion battery pack powers the electric generator. This electric system works in combination with a 2.0L turbocharged I4 engine for 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The power is just the beginning of what makes the 4xe so unique. The efficiency takes it to a whole new level. The 4xe has an all-electric driving range of 21 miles, a total hybrid driving range of 370 miles, and a combined average MPG of 49. Those are some big numbers, especially for a vehicle as capable as the 4xe. The 4xe's E-Selec modes, Hybrid, Electric, and E-Save, put the driver in control, allowing them to choose where the car's power comes from. While electric mode disables the gas engine to save on fuel, E-Save mode disables the electric motors to save and recharge the battery. Hybrid pages on the Uconnect touchscreen allow drivers to easily monitor their battery charge level, usage, and fuel economy.

What are the trim levels and features of the 2021 Wrangler 4xe?

The 4xe lineup is outfitted with equipment that is standard on the higher trim levels of the gas-powered models. Standard features on the 4xe Sahara include leather-trimmed upholstery, keyless entry, push-button start, an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen with Hybrid Pages, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, a 9-speaker Alpine sound system, dual-zone automatic climate control, 20-inch alloy wheels, and body-colored fender flares. Like the gas model, the Wrangler 4xe Rubicon has one goal in mind, provide as much off-roading capability as possible! The Rubicon features an electronic disconnecting sway bar, electronic locking front and rear differentials, a Rock-Trac 4x4 transfer case, body-colored high-clearance fender flares, and FOX suspension components. The fittingly named High Altitude trim tops off the lineup with luxurious features like quilted leather-trimmed upholstery, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, LED exterior lighting, and 20-inch Gloss Black alloy wheels.
