Electric Jeep Wrangler

Electric Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is trading its iconic 4x4 badges for new badges reading 4xe; Jeep's first-ever plug-in-hybrid model. The 2021 Wrangler 4xe sticks to its environmentally-friendly mantra with an eco-friendly powertrain.

The electrified Wrangler more than holds its own when it comes to offroad capabilities. Every 4xe sports a pair of solid Dana 44 axles, a two-speed transfer case allowing full-time 4-wheel drive and 10.8 inches of ground clearance. Jeep says all 4xe's high-voltage components are sealed and waterproof as well.

As far as power, the electric Wrangler actually outdoes its counterpart. With one electric motor mounted at the front of the 4xe's turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and another mounted at the front of its 8-speed automatic transmission, the hybrid Wrangler generates 375 horsepower & 470 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers beat all of the lineup's nonhybrid engines, including the diesel 3.0-liter V-6.

The Wrangler 4xe will be the most fuel-efficient model on the Jeep roster. With an estimated 50 MPGe, it also has an electric-only mode that reportedly delivers up to 25 miles of driving range on a full charge. There's also a Hybrid mode that combines both gas and electric sources but prioritizes battery power until it reaches a minimum state of charge. This eSave mode utilizes the gas engine for power, conserving battery power.
