2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe at Westborn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM

Jeep has something exciting up its sleeve for the 2021 model year. For the first time ever, Jeep has designed a new hybrid-electric model, the Wrangler 4xe. Based on the beloved Jeep Wrangler, the 4xe brings you all your favorite features of the classic Jeep design -- including its power -- but now incorporates two electric motors alongside its standard engine! The Wrangler 4xe has a rechargeable battery that will power your journey for up to 25 miles. That means even more adventures exploring the great outdoors! Available in three familiar trim levels previously seen on traditional Wrangler models, the Wrangler 4xe delivers on power, athleticism, and off-roading capabilities, all while conserving energy as you drive. Discover the new 2021 Wrangler 4xe and how it can serve your need for adventure while also serving the planet!



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.


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.



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.


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.


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.



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.


This feature allows the battery to be charged when decelerating and braking. The Max Regeneration feature remaps the accelerator pedal to command more aggressive regen at low pedal positions. It allows you to slow the vehicle down without the brake pedal, but a complete stop always requires the brake pedal. It also stays selected until you turn it off.

Is the Wrangler 4xe Fit for Off-Roading?

The short answer is: absolutely! Those who know the original Wrangler for its adventurous spirit will be pleased to hear that the 4xe is just as capable as its predecessor. The 4xe bears the Jeep Trail Rated badge, which means it's been rigorously tested on all areas of its all-terrain abilities. Some off-roading equipment includes rear tow hooks and underbody skid plates, and all of the Wrangler 4xe's electric wiring and components have been fully sealed for a waterproof finish. In fact, the 4xe is rated for water fording in up to 30 inches! In addition to Jeep's signature Selec-Terrain traction management system that allows you to optimize your drive for conditions like sand, mud, and snow, the 4xe also features three E Selec modes that customize the power consumption of its hybrid powertrain. Choose between Hybrid, Electric or eSave to maintain your vehicle's power based on the length of your journey, or let the 4xe choose the correct option automatically when the battery runs low.

What is the Wrangler 4xe's New Hybrid Technology?

Despite all the exciting new changes that come along with the Wrangler 4xe, you can rest assured that it maintains all the Jeep capability and off-road strength you know and love. But how does it get its power? Under the hood, you'll find a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine alongside two electric motors. Those motors are powered by a 17kWh, 96-cell lithium-ion battery pack that's tucked safely beneath the rear seats. With the available Level II charging cable, you can fully recharge your Wrangler 4xe in just two hours! The charging port is easily accessible on the front end of the vehicle, and features LED indicators at the port, and on the dashboard so you always know your levels. This innovative hybrid powertrain provides the Wrangler 4xe with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque with the added benefit of enhanced fuel efficiency. Drivers will also notice the instant availability of torque thanks to the electric components, meaning starting your journey is quicker and easier than ever.

The 4xe is exclusively available in a 4-door configuration, which adds some extra interior space, and seating for up to five passengers. All models feature the Uconnect 4C NAV infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and there is also a premium Alpine auto system available which provides a 9-speaker setup for a crisp, clear listening experience. Upper trims can opt for soft leather upholstery on the interior, and the Rubicon 4xe also includes some electric blue accents like contrast stitching, blue tow hooks, and a blue-outlined Rubicon hood decal.
