What is the Wrangler 4xe’s Hybrid Powertrain?
As we mentioned above, the Wrangler 4xe harnesses the power of both an engine and a battery pack to bring you the maximum amount of torque and horsepower while still staying efficient! The Wrangler 4xe’s innovative powertrain starts with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine mated to two electric motors. The motors are powered by a 400-volt rechargeable battery pack, and the whole system pairs with an 8-speed automatic transmission. In terms of output, this powertrain is capable of producing 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the electric power produces an immediate availability of torque, making the Wrangler 4xe feel quicker and more responsive than a typical gas SUV. There are three selectable drive modes to choose from, depending on how you’d like to use your Wrangler’s power. In Hybrid mode, the gas engine and the battery pack will be used simultaneously, resulting in the maximum amount of horsepower and torque. You can also choose eSave mode, where the Wrangler 4xe will use the gas power first, conserving the battery power until it’s needed. Lastly, there’s Electric mode, which allows you to solely use the battery power, affording you an estimated 21 miles of all-electric range, and a near-silent driving experience.
What Capabilities does the 2022 Wrangler 4xe Have?
With the help of its innovative hybrid technology, the Wrangler 4xe allows you to take your adventures further than ever before, with its increased driving range. Plus, as mentioned earlier, the electric power helps create an instant availability of torque, for a sportier, more agile feel. One of the Wrangler 4xe’s three trim levels for 2022 is the legendary Rubicon, which is known for its off-road prowess. The Rubicon 4xe is Jeep Trail Rated, and even has the ability to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 6.4 seconds! Notably, the 2022 Wrangler 4xe is also the first PHEV on the market to feature front and rear locking differentials, creating exceptional traction while rock crawling. The Wrangler 4xe can also ford up to 30 inches of water, thanks to the waterproof seal on its battery pack and other electric components. All Wrangler 4xe models come with “electric blue” front tow hooks, Dana heavy-duty axles, and steel underbody skid plates. When properly equipped, the 2022 Wrangler 4xe can also tow up to 3,500 pounds!
What are the Jeep Wrangler 4xe’s Design Features?
Just like the classic Jeep Wrangler, the Wrangler 4xe has signature features like the seven-slot grille, round headlamps, and removable roof and doors. The Wrangler 4xe is available exclusively as a Wrangler Unlimited, meaning it has four doors, and a five-seat layout inside. The seats are leather-trimmed on all three models, with the Rubicon adding a blue embroidered emblem to the front seats. The Wrangler 4xe comes with standard features like LED exterior lighting, 20-inch wheels, and keyless entry. The whole lineup also features the Uconnecg 4NAV infotainment system, which comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, as well as integrated TomTom navigation. It also features an LED battery level indicator both on the dashboard, and at the charging port so that you can always keep an eye on your power levels. New for 2022, the side mirrors also feature supplemental turn signals for added visibility, and all trim levels also include a premium sound system from Alpine.
