CAPABILITY

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 JeepĀ® 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.

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.

RANGE

CHARGING MADE SIMPLE

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

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.

HYBRID TECHNOLOGY

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.

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.

What powers the 2021 Wrangler 4xe?

The notion that hybrids are less powerful than gas engines could not be more wrong about the Wrangler 4xe. Its combination of a turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine and two electric generators cranks out 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. One electric generator is mounted on the cylinder head at the top of the engine, and the other is mounted in front of the transmission, replacing the torque converter. The generators are powered by a 400-volt battery pack underneath the rear seat. In addition to the tremendous power, the Wrangler 4xe provides drivers with a fuel-sipping 49 MPG, 21 miles of emissions-free driving, and a total driving range of 370 miles! The E-Selec buttons, exclusive to the 4xe, let drivers control their usage with Hybrid, E-Save, or Electric modes. While Electric mode disables the gas engine, E-Save disables the electric motors to charge the battery and save the fully electric power for a later time.

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

The features of the Wrangler 4xe are nearly identical to those of the upper-level gas Wrangler models. The well-equipped Sahara trim offers fantastic features like keyless entry/ignition, 20-inch alloy wheels, body-color fender flares, leather-trimmed upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 9-speaker Alpine premium audio system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect 4 infotainment touchscreen with Hybrid Pages, and more. The Rubicon trim takes to the trails with Rock-Trac 4x4, Off-Road+, FOX suspension, high-clearance fender flares, 33-inch all-terrain tires, electronic locking front and rear differentials, an electronic disconnecting swaybar, and Surf Blue interior and exterior accents. The High Altitude trim tops off the lineup with quilted Nappa leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, Gloss Black 20-inch alloy wheels, and LED exterior lighting.

Is the Wrangler 4xe Trail Rated?

Absolutely! The Wrangler 4xe is every bit a Wrangler as the gas models. In fact, some may argue it's even more capable! The added capability comes from the location of the second electric generator. This instantly transfers the torque from the engine to the wheels, making all 470 lb-ft of torque instantly available. This allows off-roaders to move the wheels without building up RPMs and helps highway drivers merge with no problem at all. Not to mention the six-second 0-60 time! The Wrangler 4xe also features the normal Wrangler off-roading features like a high-strength steel frame, heavy-duty Dana 44 axles, underbody skid plates, tow hooks, and more. The Wrangler 4xe features full-time 4x4 with a two-speed transfer case. By now, you may be thinking that electricity and water don't mix well. This is why the electric motors are well insulated, the electrical connections are sealed, and the battery pack is tucked under the rear seat up and away from the elements.
