2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe at Cunningham Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

The Jeep Wrangler has a long and storied history that has cemented its status as one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road. Its iconic appearance and undeniable capability have made it a household name that maintains its popularity to this day. Now in the 2021 model year, Jeep is taking the beloved Wrangler to the next level with an all-new hybrid version, the Wrangler 4xe. Pronounced "Four By E," this title signifies the Wrangler's exceptional 4X4 capability that now utilizes a hybrid-electric powertrain to provide a longer range than ever before. In fact, a fully charged 4xe can travel for up to 25 miles on all-electric power. The Wrangler 4xe is available in three trim levels that we've gotten to know through the classic Wrangler model, the Sahara, Rubicon and High Altitude. All trim levels are exclusively available as 4-door models, and each one brings its own unique features to the table. Read on to discover the innovative technology of the Wrangler 4xe!

THE FUTURE IS NOW

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.

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. 

SAY GOODBYE TO RANGE ANXIETY

TUNE INTO NATURE

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. 

SMOOTH AND SEAMLESS

In Electric Mode, the Wrangler 4xe uses only battery power-so you can venture into nature with quiet, smooth and seamless starts and stops for minimal impact. Take the top and doors off, when off-roading, and you're truly one with the many wonders around you. Preproduction model shown.

THE TECH THAT MAKES IT HAPPEN

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.

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.

CHARGING MADE SIMPLE

AWARD-WINNING INNOVATION

ery Wrangler 4xe is delivered with a Level I (120V) charging system that plugs into a typical household outlet. You can get an even faster charge with an available safe, simple-to-use Level II (240V) charger like the Mopar® Branded TurboDX Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger.

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.

How Does the Wrangler 4xe's Hybrid Powertrain Operate?

When it comes to the 2021 Wrangler 4xe, the real magic happens under the hood. The hybrid powertrain combines a powerful engine and transmission with two battery-powered motors. The first half of the equation features a robust 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine paired with an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The hybrid aspect includes two electric motors connected to a 400-volt, 96 cell lithium-ion battery pack. The battery can be easily recharged via the port on the front end of the vehicle, and drivers can monitor the battery levels on the dashboard and right on the port itself thanks to LED indicators. The battery and all its wiring are waterproof-sealed, and the 4xe can even withstand up to 30 inches of water fording. 

What are the Tech Features of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe?

The Wrangler 4xe employs cutting-edge hybrid technology in order to increase fuel efficiency and optimize battery life. It offers three available drive modes, Hybrid, Electric and eSave. Hybrid mode pulls power from both the engine and the battery, electric relies solely on battery power, and eSave will utilize the engine power first, and switch over to electric when the 4xe needs an extra boost. The 4xe also uses regenerative braking, a system in which the vehicle sends electricity to the battery pack when the brake pedal is engaged. The Wrangler 4xe also features entertainment technology such as the Uconnect 4C NAV infotainment system. This version includes integrated navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and up to an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Drivers can also access Eco Coaching Pages which help guide them through the 4xe's various functions.
