What powers the 2021 Wrangler 4xe?

The Wrangler harnesses the power of a 2.0L turbocharged I4 and pairs it with two electric generators. One generator is mounted to the cylinder head and one is mounted to the front of the transmission. The generators are powered by a 96-cell, 400-volt lithium-ion battery pack. This combination kicks out a whopping 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque that is instantly available. The 4xe provides drivers with a combined average of 49 MPG, 21 miles of zero-emissions driving, and a 370-mile total driving range. The 4xe features three E-Selec modes. The system defaults to Hybrid mode while E-Save mode disables the electric motors to charge the battery and save the electric power for a later time, Electric mode disables the gas engine for near-silent driving with no emissions. The Wrangler 4xe utilizes Jeep's trusted TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission for even torque distribution and smooth shifts. Still being a Wrangler, the 4xe features Jeep's Selec-Trac full-time 4x4 drivetrain.

Is the Wrangler 4xe still off-road capable?

Of course! Jeep made sure that the Wrangler 4xe was still every bit a Wrangler as the gas-powered models. Still wearing the Trail Rated badge, the 4xe features Dana 44 solid front and rear axles, underbody skid plate protection, full-time four-wheel drive with a transfer case, a high-strength steel frame, and more. The electric motors allow for all 470 lb-ft of torque to be available instantly. This is especially helpful when using the 4xe to crawl over rocks or other rugged terrains because it allows the wheels to move without having to build up RPMs. It also helps the 4xe reach 60 MPH from a full stop in just 6 seconds! If your off-roading endeavors bring you to some water, the Wrangler 4xe can get you through up to 30 inches of water with sealed electrical connections and an air intake high under the hood. The lithium-ion battery pack is placed under the rear seat where it is protected from the elements.
