Natural heir to the first Jeep vehicle, the Wrangler 4xe combines the best of 4x4 and the best of electric. Moreover, 4xe technology enables customers to travel in full-electric on their everyday commutes around the city, and enjoy an efficient and fun on-road driving experience, while benefitting of enhanced all terrain performance in nearly absolute silence. Marked by exclusive “Electric Blue” exterior design cues, the new Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid skillfully combines the most advanced technology with the freest and most authentic Jeep spirit.

Indeed, it fully appeals to off-road enthusiasts, courtesy of electrification that improves its legendary capability. Performance has also been enhanced: Wrangler 4xe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds and delivers 380 hp of maximum combined output and 637 Nm of torque. In addition, it drives 4x4 in “pure electric” mode, with never-seen-before low-end control, and can ensure more than 50 km of “pure electric” zero emissions range (in the urban WLTP cycle), which is perfect for everyday commutes in the city.

Full battery recharge is available in less than 3 hours with options for scheduling, and courtesy of the Max Regen feature to increase the battery charge when coasting. The Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid is equipped with two electric motor generators and a high-voltage battery pack, with a high-tech turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine and the proven TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Indeed, it is off-road that 4xe technology takes the new Wrangler Plug-in Hybrid to the next level, offering four-wheel drive in full-electric mode for benchmark all-terrain performance in complete safety, and the pleasure of listening to the sounds of nature.

Depending on the trim, it offers two advanced four-wheel drive, active, on-demand full time systems (Selec-Trac or Rock-Trac), next-generation Dana axles, Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited slip differential and electronic front sway-bar disconnect. In addition to making it a sustainable and efficient 4x4 vehicle (with fuel consumption of around 3.5 liters/100 km in hybrid mode and CO2 emissions lower of almost 70% compared to the petrol version according to the WLTP cycle), 4xe technology guarantees an easy and extremely fun driving experience.
