2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe at Reedman Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Springfield

For years, the Jeep Wrangler has been a dominating force in the off-road SUV world. It's often known as the original go-anywhere and do-anything vehicle, and in 2021 it maintains its wonderful off-road prowess as well as providing drivers with tons of advanced tech and safety features to make it one of the most well-rounded vehicles on the road. This year also sees the unveiling of a new hybrid version known as the 4xe, which takes the turbocharged four-cylinder and adds hybrid components to up the horsepower to 375 while also providing up to 25-miles of all-electric range. In this article, we will cover all the Wrangler 4xe has to offer so you can get a sneak peek into what this powerful SUV has to offer! 

THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT

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.

Goodbye to Range Anxiety

Whether you want to take an 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.

THE TECH THAT MAKES IT HAPPEN

ESave Mode

eSave Mode prioritizes the 2.0L engine. This saves the battery charge for later use. When power demand is low, the engine shuts off. It can also be reconfigured to increase the battery charge as well.

Recharge

The battery can be fully recharged in approximately 2 hours using an available Level II charger (240-volt), or 12 hours using the included Level I charger (120-volt). With the ability to charge at home and work, you can enjoy the benefits of fully electric daily commutes.

INNOVATIVE DRIVING MODES

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.

HOW FAR CAN YOU GO?

Tune Into Nature

Quiet electric power means you can truly take in the natural sights and sounds around you. But your 4xe is unique, and you may hear some unfamiliar sounds. It sounds like the whoosh of the Pedestrian Alert System when driving below 20 mph, the high voltage contactors clicking when you start up and shut down as well as the Electric Air Conditioning compressor.

Charging Made Simple

With Amazon, it's easier than ever to get a charger into your home, like the simple-to-use available Level II Mopar® Branded TurboDX Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger.  It can fully charge the Wrangler 4xe battery in approximately 2 hours versus 12 hours using the included Level I charging cable.
