Presented by Newark CDJ

Jeep has announced that 2021 will bring an electrified Wrangler. The Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid will provide 375 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque, and can go 0-60 MPH in six seconds, all while providing up to 50 miles of completely silent electric driving and up to a 400-mile driving range. The 4xe will be manufactured in the FCA Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio, and start to roll into showrooms in December 2020. These are just a few of the reasons Green Call Journal has already named the 4xe Green SUV of the Year. Continue reading to learn more about this remarkable new Wrangler.

New Drivetrain, Same Off-Road Legend

Before all you off-road enthusiasts grumble at the word hybrid, let's take a look at the specs. The Wrangler is a world-renowned off-road legend, and for good reason.  The 4xe still bears the Trail Rated badge, the legendary Wrangler 4x4 system, two-speed transfer case, over 10 inches of ground clearance, 30 inches of water fording, and fully articulating suspension. The integration of gas and electric power with the 4x4 drivetrain actually enhances the Wrangler 4xe's off-road prowess by a lot allowing you to venture even further.

How is the 4xe Powered?

The Wrangler 4xe combines a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine with two hybrid motors, a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, and a high-voltage battery pack. One electric motor is mounted to the cylinder head, and one is mounted in front of the transmission. Torque is immediately available on-demand to the driver from the two electric motors. The 4xe includes E Selec mode to allow drivers to select which power mode best fits the trip they're on. Hybrid is the default mode that combines power from the engine and the electric motors, providing a seamless stop-start function of the engine. The electric mode button utilizes only power from the electric motors for fuel-saving driving in the city or quiet off-roading with the best horsepower and torque it has to offer. E-Save mode uses just the power from the 2.0L I-4 engine to save the electric motors' power for later.
