The 4xe is Jeep’s universal name for its plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology. While being able to deliver up to 25 miles of electric-only propulsion, zero-emission, and being nearly silent before switching over to its 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the most proficient and eco-friendly off-road vehicle, maximizing its efficiency with an estimated 50 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe), and a total driving range of 400miles. But, is that all customers can expect? Think again, the Wrangler is packed with power to go nearly anywhere just like all Jeep brand vehicles.

Jeep Strength Can’t Be Matched

An impressive 375 horsepower, 0-60 mph in just 6.0 seconds, 470 pound-feet of instant torque for heart-pounding performance both off-road and on-road. The most advanced Wrangler powertrain combines a high-tech, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack, and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Torque from the electric motors in the Wrangler 4xe is produced immediately on demand by the driver. The powertrain also delivers fuel-saving, seamless, stop-start operation of the engine.

“The Jeep Wrangler 4xe reaches a new audience by creatively mixing advanced propulsion with a staple in the off-road world, It is this combination of technology without sacrificing the core capabilities of the Wrangler that has earned the vehicle our Hybrid Technology Solution of the Year award,” said Bryan Vaughn, President of AutoTech Breakthrough Awards. 

Jeep Technology Remains Top-Notch

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler remains a stellar choice for buyers to consider. Technology leads the way for the biggest reason to own this year’s lineup. The most advanced Wrangler powertrain combines a high-tech, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack, and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Torque from the electric motors in the Wrangler 4xe arrives instantly on-demand from the driver. The powertrain also delivers fuel-saving, seamless, stop-start operation of the engine.

Drivers have absolute control of the hybrid powertrain to best suit each trip with the E Selec mode buttons on the instrument panel. Hybrid, the default mode, blends power from the engine and electric motors. Electric prioritizes EV operation until the battery reaches its minimum charge, while eSave prioritizes propulsion from the engine, saving the battery charge for later use. With an electric vehicle lifestyle, the Wrangler 4xe retains the Wrangler’s Trail Rating. Outfitted with solid front and rear axles, a full-time 4×4 two-speed transfer case, fully articulating suspension, and 30 inches of water fording capability. All Wrangler 4xe power modes are available when the drivetrain is shifted to 4Lo. The seamless combination of electric power into the 4×4 drivetrain furthers the Wrangler 4xe to new levels of off-road performance.
