2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe at Marburger Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM

Jeep has been growing by leaps and bounds in the 2021 model year! One of the directions they have taken the brand is into the realm of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV). Their first endeavor into the electric vehicle world is with the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe. The 4xe takes the power of the tried and true 2.0L turbocharged engine and pairs it with two electric motors powered by a 400-volt battery pack under the rear seat. This setup provides drivers with fantastic power, off-road handling, and efficiency. Explore all that the Wrangler 4xe has to offer right here!

HYBRID TECHNOLOGY

REGENERATIVE BRAKING

This feature allows the battery to be charged when decelerating and braking. The Max Regeneration feature remaps the accelerator pedal to command more aggressive regen at low pedal positions. It allows you to slow the vehicle down without the brake pedal, but a complete stop always requires the brake pedal. It also stays selected until you turn it off.

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.

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

CHARGING MADE SIMPLE

It's easier than ever to get a charger into your home, like the simple-to-use Level II Jeep® Branded Charger. It can fully charge the Wrangler 4xe battery in approximately 2 hours versus 12 hours using the included Level I charging cable.

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.

What powers the Wrangler 4xe?

The Wrangler 4xe comes with a 2.0L turbocharged I4 engine mated to two elected motors. One of the generators is mounted to the cylinder head while the other is in front of the transmission, in place of the torque convertor. A robust TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic is used to drive all four wheels with seamless torque distribution and shifts. This plug-in hybrid setup gives the Wrangler 4xe a potent 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. We would be remiss to mention the instant availability of the torque. All 470 lb-ft of torque is instantly available, which aids in performance and off-road control. For efficiency, the Wrangler 4xe maintains an average of 49 MPG, a total driving range of 379 miles, and 21-miles of fully electric, zero-emissions driving. The E-Selec drive mode technology gives drivers the option to choose between Hybrid, Electric, and E-Save modes. Hybrid Pages are displayed on the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen, allowing drivers to monitor the efficiency and usage of their 4xe.

What are the trim levels and features of the 2021 Wrangler 4xe?

The Wrangler 4xe comes in three different configurations, Sahara, Rubicon, and High Altitude. The baseline Sahara comes with high-end Wrangler features like 20-inch alloy wheels, body-color fender flares, available LED lighting, leather-trimmed upholstery, an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 9-speaker Alpine premium audio system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, keyless entry, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Talk about being anything but entry-level! The Rubicon focuses solely on superior off-road capability. This incredible trim offers 33-inch all-terrain tires under high-clearance fender flares, FOX suspension parts, electronic locking front and rear differentials, an electronic disconnecting front sway bar, and more. Lastly, the High Altitude shifts the focus to luxurious comfort while still staying true to the Wrangler spirit. This brings fully LED exterior lighting, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, quilted leather upholstery, and more.

Does the hybrid system compromise the Wrangler's capability?

Absolutely not. On the contrary, the hybrid system enhances the legendary capability of the Wrangler! The Wrangler 4xe still comes with heavy-duty Dana 44 solid front and rear axles, a full-time 4x4 system with a two-speed transfer case, full suspension articulation, and high-clearance trapezoidal fender flares. The Wrangler still remains an off-roading icon with a towering 10.8 inches of ground clearance from the factory, off-road-tuned suspension, and a high-strength steel frame. The Wrangler 4xe can also take on up to 30 inches of water. This is because the hybrid battery pack is placed under the rear seat, where it is protected from the elements, sealed electrical connections, and an air intake placed at the top of the engine bay. If the standard Wrangler equipment doesn't cut it for your needs, the Wrangler 4xe Rubicon is for you!
