HYBRID TECHNOLOGY

ELECTRIC MODE

When the battery has more than a 1% charge, it can run in Electric Mode. This allows for nearly zero tailpipe emissions up to highway speeds. The vehicle can run in this mode for up to 21 miles.

HYBRID MODE

The default mode, Hybrid, combines torque from both the 2.0L turbocharged engine and the electric motors. This combination provides maximum horsepower, instant torque and the best acceleration. Electric power is consumed first.

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 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.

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

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.

SEIZE THE DRIVE

E-Selec driving modes put you in control. Electric Mode uses only battery power for low-emissions zones in cities or quiet off-roading with maximum torque and horsepower, while eSave Mode reserves battery power for later. Hybrid Mode gives you the best of both worlds. Preproduction model shown.

How is the Wrangler 4xe Powered?

A hybrid system combines the power of a gas engine with the power of an electric motor. In the case of the 4xe, the system is made up of a 2.0L turbocharged I4, two motor generator units. One generator is on the cylinder head while another is at the front of the transmission in place of the torque converter. The 4xe comes with a 400-volt, 17-kWh nickel manganese cobalt battery pack placed under the second-row seat to protect it from any outside elements. This setup provides drivers with some impressive numbers like 375 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of instant torque, 21 miles of full-electric driving, a 379-mile total driving range, and up to 50 MPGe. In a traditional hybrid system, the electric motor uses the gas engine to charge itself. A plug-in hybrid, like the 4xe, uses an external power source to charge. Regenerative braking is also utilized by the 4xe. This feature charges the electric motors while the vehicle is decelerating or braking. This also allows you to slow down the vehicle without using the brake pedal, extending the life of your brake pads. Another impressive feature of the 2021 Wrangler 4xe is the E-Selec Modes. E-Selec defaults to Hybrid mode which uses electric power first then the gas engine kicks in for added propulsion. Electric mode allows drivers to enjoy zero-emission driving for a daily commute or for a quiet open-air drive through nature. Electric mode will turn itself off and engage the gas engine when minimum charge is reached. The Gas engine will also be engaged if the driver requests more torque. The last mode is E-Save which relies on the gas engine to save the electric motors for a later time.

Is the 4xe Still Capable?

Absolutely! The Wrangler 4xe may be a plug-in hybrid, but it's still got the spirit of any other Wrangler! The hybrid nature of the 4xe doesn't restrain its capability. It actually sets it free. Off-road enthusiasts will find the 4xe easier to control when crawling and climbing thanks to the 470 lb-ft of torque that is available instantly from the hybrid system without the need to raise the RPM to move the wheels. All 4xe models have earned Jeep's coveted Trail Rated badge with Jeep's Selec-Trac full-time four-wheel-drive system with a two-speed transfer case that has a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. The 4x4 system is also equipped with advanced Dana 44 heavy-duty wide axles for added durability and on/off-road performance. The Wrangler Rubicon has long been the vehicle that other off-road vehicles are compared to. The Wrangler 4xe Rubicon is no different! Like all other Rubicons, the 4xe Rubicon will come with Rock-Trac 4x4, Tru-Lok electronic locking front and rear differentials, a two-speed transfer case with a 4:1 low-range gear ratio, 33-inch all-terrain tires, and an electronic disconnecting front sway bar for added suspension travel and articulation.
