2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid

2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid Overview

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the first-ever plug-in hybrid version of the Wrangler. It comes equipped with an advanced turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to two electric motors and a 400-volt, 17 kWh battery pack. Total output is an estimated 350 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. The battery pack is mounted beneath the second-row seat. Available solely as a four-door body style, the Wrangler 4xe can go up to 25 miles on electric power and deliver more than 50 MPGe. Off-road capability is expected to be quite something. 

The 4x4 drivetrain receives instant torque thanks to an electric motor, allowing for more precise control for climbing and rock crawling. Essentially, drivers will no longer have to build up engine rpm to get the tires rolling. Optional features like the Trak-Lok limited-slip differential provide additional grip in low-traction driving conditions, such as sand and snow. 

Three trim levels will be offered: 4xe, Sahara 4xe, and Rubicon 4xe. All versions come standard with Selec-Speed Control with Hill-ascent and descent control, and 30 inches of water fording capability. 4xe and Sahara 4xe come standard with a full-time 4x4 system, 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, front and rear Dana 44 axles, and a Selec-Trac two-speed transfer case. The top-of-the-line Rubicon takes things up a notch with a Rock-Trac 4x4 system, 4:1 gear ratio, Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle lockers, and a crawl ratio of 77.2:1.

Sales are expected to begin in early 2021 and pricing will be announced at around that time.
