Jeep Wrangler 4xe Launch Editions Revealed

Jeep Wrangler 4xe Launch Editions Revealed

Announcement from the Folks at Flagler Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram

The Wrangler 4xe ("four-by-e") is the first Wrangler to offer a hybrid drivetrain with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. The 4xe Wrangler will launch with two models: the Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4xe and the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe.

"The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the greenest, most efficient and capable Wrangler we have created yet," said Christian Meunier, Global President of Jeep Brand - FCA. "We are committed to making Jeep the greenest SUV brand, and the new Wrangler 4xe is part of that goal, delivering an efficient, eco-friendly and fun-to-drive experience both on- and off-road."

What does the 4xe hybrid drivetrain consist of?

Both the Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon 4xes sport  turbocharged four-cylinder engines with two attached electric motors. The 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine is part of FCA's Global Medium Engine family. This direct-injection engine uses a twin-scroll, low-inertia turbocharger for exceptional responsiveness, performance and fuel efficiency.

The first electric motor attached is a high-voltage, liquid-cooled eTorque motor generator that replaces the conventional alternator. This motor generator spins the engine for nearly seamless, fuel-saving, start-stop operation and generates electricity for the battery pack. The second high-voltage motor generator is mounted at the front of the transmission case and is key for the pure electric operation of the Wrangler 4xe.

The power for electric propulsion comes from a 17-kWh, 400-volt, lithium-ion nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) graphite battery pack which can be replenished externally by a charging port on the driver's side, or internally by the gasoline engine.

Can I drive it just on battery power?

Yes. The Wrangler 4xe offers three driving modes. The default "Hybrid Mode" prioritizes battery power but starts up the gasoline engine as needed. "Electric Mode" goes battery-only unless the driver needs full throttle, or the battery voltage dips too low. Lastly, the "E-Save Mode" uses the gasoline engine to propel the vehicle while recharging the battery for later use.

Is the Wrangler 4xe a good off-road vehicle?

Absolutely. The Wrangler 4xe is first and foremost a Jeep Wrangler with Trail Rated running gear. This includes solid front and rear axles, a full-time 4x4 two-speed transfer case, and a fully articulating suspension. Off-road enthusiasts will find that the instant availability of torque from the Wrangler 4xe's electric motor delivers a more precise driving experience for climbing and crawling. This is because there's no need to boost the engine rpm to get the drivetrain powered up and moving.

What features do the Wrangler 4xe Launch Editions come with?

The Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4xe Launch Edition comes with 20-inch wheels, Leather-trimmed bucket seats, LED Lighting Group, Uconnect  4C NAV with 8.4-inch display, Nine speaker Alpine® audio system with subwoofer, 2.72:1 Selec-Trac Full-Time 4WD System, and Dana 44 HD wide axles.

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe Launch Edition comes with the LED Lighting Group, Uconnect 4C NAV with 8.4-inch display, Nine speaker Alpine® audio system with subwoofer, and 4:1 Rock-Trac® Heavy-Duty Full-Time 4WD System

Can I customize my Wrangler 4xe?

You bet you can.  A comprehensive selection of more than 300 Jeep Wrangler products will be available from Mopar. These will include Jeep Performance Parts (JPP). Additional products will include beadlock-capable wheels, off-road bumpers, LED off-road lights and rock rails, just to name a few. 

Unlike any other aftermarket offerings, Jeep Performance Parts and accessories are backed by a full factory warranty. The products are created in close conjunction with the Jeep brand, engineering and product design-office teams for development, testing and validation.
