2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe at Hendrick Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Jeep has broken the mold once again by launching the brand into the world of hybrid vehicles! This was done by placing a hybrid drivetrain in the already impressive Jeep Wrangler! The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid combines the iconic open-air design and superior off-road capability that the Wrangler is known for with the efficiency of a plug-in hybrid engine.

And with 21 miles of fully electric driving range, you can take the top off and enjoy the sounds of nature with a near-silent ride. There sure is a lot to love about the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe! Keep reading below to learn more about Jeep's exciting release! When you're done, be sure to check out our all-new Wrangler 4xe inventory!

Range

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.

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.

Hybrid Technology

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.

Capability

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. 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.

What makes up the 2021 Wrangler 4xe drivetrain?

Jeep has launched into the world of hybrid vehicles by combining the power of a 2.0L turbocharged I4 engine with two motor generators powered by a 400-volt, 17-kWh, 96-cell lithium-ion, nickel manganese cobalt battery pack. One of the electric motors is mounted to the cylinder head and the other to the front of the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission in place of the torque converter. Put all this together, and you've got a 375-horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque off-roading machine! Plus a gas equivalent of 49 MPG and 379 miles of total drive range. All of the Wrangler 4xe torque is instantly available for incredible launches and crawling capability. All three of the 4xe trims come with E-Selec modes to put drivers in control of the 4xe efficiency. Hybrid mode uses battery power first, then kicks in the gas engine for added power. Electric mode allows you to drive up to 21 miles with zero emissions and near-silent driving. The last E-Selec setting is E-save mode which can be used to save the electric power for a future time by using only the gas engine.

What Are Some Features of the 2021 Wrangler 4xe?

The world's first hybrid Wrangler is still a Wrangler, which means it has the removable soft top, removable doors, and a fold-down windshield for the open-air freedom the Wrangler is known for. The Wrangler 4xe also has the same off-road capability as every other Wrangler. The three Wrangler 4xe trims, Sahara, Rubicon, and High Altitude each bring something unique to the all-new model. Standard on each trim is an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, a 9-speaker Alpine sound system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and leather upholstery. Hybrid Pages on the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen will display real-time data from the hybrid system.

2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Capability

Just because it's a plug-in hybrid doesn't take away from its off-road prowess. In fact, it adds to it. With the instantly available 470 lb-ft of torque, the 4xe is easier to control when navigating tough terrain without building up engine rotations to move the wheels. All Wrangler 4xe's come with a legendary 4x4 system, Dana 44 solid front and rear axles, and a Selec-Trac two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. The Wrangler Rubicon has been an icon in the off-roading community for many years. The Wrangler 4xe Rubicon continues that tradition with Rock-Trac 4x4, Tru-Lok electric front and rear locking differentials, 33-inch all-terrain tires, and a two-speed transfer case with a 4:1 low-range gear ratio. The 4xe's capability can take on deep puddles and streams with up to 30 inches of water fording capability. This is possible because of the battery pack being under the rear seat to stay protected from the elements, as well as an air intake that's placed higher under the hood and sealed electrical connections.
