Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid gets a makeover
Jeep has confirmed specifications and pricing for its revised Wrangler 4xe hybrid model, with the plug-in getting a new all-wheel-drive electric mode.
The range has also been improved, while the technology has also been improved. Here’s what you need to know.
Intended to combine the best aspects of Jeep’s 4X4 capability with the best electric platform, the 4xe is more powerful and efficient than ever before.
The revised transmission uses the same mix of 2.0-liter gasoline engine and electric motors as before, but it can now operate off-road in electric mode only.
With a maximum output of 380 hp and 637 Nm of torque, it delivers what Jeep says is unprecedented off-road performance. It’s not bad on the road either; the adjustments mean that the acceleration has increased.
It will handle the 0-62mph run in just 6.4 seconds. Electric-only range is also on the rise, with the car now capable of exceeding 30 miles in EV mode during an urban cycle.
Other tweaks include a new Uconnect navigation system and a revised 8.4-inch touchscreen that’s standard across the range.
Standard safety features of the Wrangler 4xe include LED front and rear lights, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, rear view camera, electronic stability control (ESC) with electronic roll mitigation ( ERM) and Keyless Enter ‘N Go ™.
Front and rear park assist and the reversing camera with dynamic grid are also standard on all versions. Optional features include forward collision warning plus, adaptive cruise control with stop function and automatic high beams, for complete peace of mind, even in the urban jungle.
We’ll bring you full details on the revised Wrangler 4xe lineup when they are revealed.
