Plug-in Jeep Wrangler 4xe combines all-wheel drive and electric tech

Jeep has launching a plug-in hybrid version of the Wrangler, the Wrangler 4xe. The Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid is equipped with two electric motor generators and a high-voltage battery pack, with a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine and the proven TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.

Jeep says the new model retains the ‘Trail-Rated’ technical content of the Wrangler. Depending on the trim, it offers two 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.

The new Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid is available in three trim levels – Sahara 4xe, Rubicon 4xe and the exclusive 4xe 80th Anniversary special edition, two 4×4 systems and 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels. Ten exterior paint colours are available: Black, Bright White, Firecracker Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Hella Yella, Billet Silver Metallic, Sting-Gray and, for the first time in the range, the new Hydro Blue, Snazzberry and Sarge Green. All colour options can be combined with the choice of soft top, hard top, power soft top and dual top roof configurations.

Customers also receive access to the benefits of Jeep Wave, the new loyalty and customer care program that includes a wide range of services and advantages, including two years of routine maintenance, roadside assistance, dedicated customer services and access to branded events and partnerships.

Jeep says customisation is another key attribute of the Wrangler 4xe so, courtesy of Mopar, customers will be able to select from more than 100 accessories to enhance the vehicle’s functionality with additional content, increasing the options for personalisation and expanding the offer to improve the Wrangler’s capabilities.

  1. BUT this car is still a ‘dirty dinosaur’. All 48 volt battery assisted MHEVs are,with generator(s) but no battery propulsion motor(s)! OR have I mis-read and mis-understood?
    A hybrid has two different types of energy PROPULSIONS,e.g. an i.c.e. engine and battery propelling electric MOTOR(s). An M.H.E.V. does not have battery propulsion motor(s):just a high voltage,48 volt or similar,generator(s) to assist an I.C.E. propelled car. I think! Maybe I am wrong?
