The 2022 Women’s World of the Year Awards Choose the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022

Even DJ Khaled is sick of Jeep, as the automaker wins “Another One.” This time the Jeep Wrangler 4xe recieved its flowers from the 2022 Women’s World Car of the Year Awards. A panel of 56 women from 40 different countries chose the Wrangler 4xe as the Best 4×4.   

Vehicles in the World Car of the Year competition received an evaluation based on its safety, comfort, handling, design, technology, efficiency, environmental impact, and value. The award comes from the twelfth year of the Women’s World Car of the Year, and the Wrangler 4xe received critical acclaim for its dedication to sustainability. 

“With the Wrangler 4xe, the Jeep brand has taken a giant step forward in many ways, but the most important is its commitment to a more sustainable environment. It is very much appreciated that one of the true SUVs left on the market has opted for hybridisation. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe’s commitment to the environment is of decisive value for the Women’s World Car of the Year.”

 – Marta Garcia, Executive President of Women’s World Car of the Year Awards 

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe renders 21 miles of zero-emission and electric-only propulsion, making for a friendly guiltless commute without the worries of adequate mileage. Furthermore, the Wrangler 4xe is eco-friendly without compromising Jeep’s signature off-road frills. Additionally, the Wrangler 4xe delivers an almost soundless cabin even when off-roading. That tranquil cabin mixed with the open-air freedom creates a sustainable evolution that remains synonymous with everything the Jeep Wrangler stands for. 

The Wrangler hybrid provides the most sophisticated powertrain developed thus far. The Wrangler 4xe maximizes efficiency and holds an impeccable EPA rating of 49 miles per gallon-equivalent (MPGe). In addition, the hybrid Jeep provides a compelling 375 horsepower for a resounding performance,  quality off-road capability, and a monumental tread forward into an all-electric future.  

“We are delighted that the WWCOTY jurors recognized the great strides that the Jeep brand is making toward electrification of its vehicles around the world, in pursuit of its vision of Zero Emission Freedom. This Women’s World Car award is further confirmation that electrification enhances the core capabilities of our Jeep vehicles. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a clear example that you can have the best of both worlds: legendary Jeep capability and open-air fun combined with an electrified, eco-friendly package that allows you to enjoy nature in almost absolute silence.” 

– Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand CEO

The Four Wheeler SUV of the Year Goes to the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

Friday, January 21st, 2022
Jeep

The Wrangler Rubicon 392 with its V8 engine is the pinnacle of premium off-road SUVs. Other automakers try, but they can’t compare no matter their efforts. So, when others thought Jeep peaked, the automaker broke out the factory option. 

The 2022 Wrangler Rubicon 392 encompasses the best of the best when it comes to the V8 engine. The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 is the largest engine in the catalog, and the Wrangler’s fenders create a beast of a Rubicon. Once the V8 pairs with the iconic off-road hardware of Jeep’s Rubicon package and the Xtreme Recon package, it’s difficult to deny the 392 is the king of the off-road jungle and the 2022 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year.

 Ramp Travel Index RTI and Track Data 

Under the hood of the Rubicon 392 lies a hell-raising 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine. The engine yields 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, which garners the title of the most potent Jeep produced thus far. The V8’s support system is the TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission and the MP3022 Selec-Trac transfer case. The full-time transfer case is phenomenal for traction. 

The 5,200-pound Jeep skyrockets from 0-60 mph on the track in less than 5 seconds. The Wrangler Rubicon jolts through 1,320 feet in less than 14 seconds, dashing across the finish line at 101.3 mph, which makes the SUV the quickest and fastest SUV MotorTrend has ever tested.  

Similar to the Wrangler Rubicon, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the 392 dominated the RTI ramp. With the front anti-roll bar engaged, both Wranglers climbed to 63 inches. When the 392 disconnected the electronic front anti-roll bar, it made an additional 18 inches (81 inches) up the ramp. 

Time to hit the Off-Roads 

There’s a notable contrast between the Rubicon 392 and the typical Wrangler Rubicon, and that’s gearing. The 392 harbors so much power that Jeep offers a 2.72:1 low range gear instead of the standard 4.0:1. The axle gears also see an alteration of 3.73:1 instead of the 4.10:1.

The 35-inch tires are a circulation of force with locking differential at both ends, a disconnecting anti-roll bar, rock slides, and skid plates, an unstoppable force on the off-road. As a result, the Jeep easily persevered through the steep, rutted hill climbs and rocky trails.  

Although the Wrangler Rubicon is an award-winning SUV, the addition of the Xtreme Recon package and the 6.4-liter V8 engine proves that Jeep engineered the perfect off-road king. At the heart of the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is a vehicle eager to dominate, holding three of five spots in the judged categories.  It’s an honor to declare the Wrangler Rubicon 392 MotorTrend’s 2022 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year.

Autonomous Off-Roading Anyone? Jeep Says Yes!

Thursday, July 15th, 2021

On July 8th (2021), the parent company of Jeep, Stellantis, organized an EV day event. On this day, Jeep declared it would electrify every single model by 2025. Jeep already maintains the number 1 best-selling PHEV, the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe. But Stellantis stated the Wrangler would need to morph into an electric vehicle to survive far beyond this decade. Jeep didn’t unleash any fully EV vehicles for the event, but they did provide a detailed release video that promised an array of Electric Jeep’s. 

The video begins with the very first Jeep; the 1945 CJ then comes the love story. In 2021, viewers follow two Jeep lovers hit with love at first sight at a solar charging station in the wilderness. Fast-forward to 2025, and the boyfriend proposes in a beautiful lake with an even more beautiful electric Wrangler in the background. 

Two variations of the Jeep were presented during the video, the four-door and two-door Wrangler. When the two-door model receives some solo shine, viewers can see the words “Freedom” inscribed on the side of the hood. In addition, the text “Concept BEV model shown” is also captured at the bottom of the screen, which coincides with Jeep’s new slogan “Zero Emission Freedom,” which implies the vehicle has an electric powertrain. 

There is a lot to take away from the 2025 scene. To begin, the future Wrangler will be equipped with biometric recognition. The lovely couple walks towards the vehicle, and it recognizes the boyfriend’s face, unlocks, and the Wrangler starts up. Peer-to-peer charging is also demonstrated when the girlfriend plugs the two-door into the four-door. The 2025 segment ends with the couple’s drone flying above, providing extra light on the nighttime off-road travel—another monumental scene to promote the future of Wrangler’s drone pairing capabilities.

After 2025 comes 2030, where the couple camps with the accompanying four-door model. While the couple is hiking, the four-door Wrangler is seen piloting through the off-road trails, to the amazement of a fellow Jeep owner driving in the opposite direction. This scene suggests the Wrangler will be proficient in autonomous off-roading by 2030. The final clip is the EV Jeep promoting flat-seat stargazing with the couple engulfed in each other watching the sky while the Jeep drives them to their destination. 

“Future models and features may vary,” this is what Jeep annotates at the bottom of the screen to inform viewers that futuristic technology is not promised. Nevertheless, the video provides some insight into what could potentially be next for the Wrangler EV and gives viewers a taste of what off-roading may look like for the future. 

For over 30 years, Miami Lakes Automall has served South Florida with all buying, trading, and leasing desires. Just take a look at our new vehicle inventory or our quality pre-owned vehicles.

Say Hello to the No.1 Best-Selling PHEV In Q2, The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

Monday, July 12th, 2021

Reports are in 

The second quarter of 2021 has been kind to the new Jeep Wrangler 4xe, or at least that’s what the Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) report states. 

“The Jeep brand continues its trailblazing performance, recording a 19% increase in total sales year-over-year, and its second-best ever the second quarter for U.S. retail sales. Wrangler recorded its best quarter ever for U.S. retail sales, while Gladiator posted its best quarter ever for U.S. retail sales, as well as U.S. total sales with 29,962 vehicles. – FCA 

The Jeep lineup continues to evolve since the launch of the Wrangler 4xe in March. The 4xe quickly soared to the best-selling hybrid on the market. But the FCA hasn’t provided a number for the number of plug-ins sold. The amount of 4Xe’s sold may be surprising, but customers are eager to take advantage of an electric drive off the road with a long-standing brand. 

About the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

The 4Xe has 375 horsepower, 470 pounds of torque, 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line four, and an electric motor lodged between the engine and transmission. The hybrid can jump from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and earned a 49 MPGe rating from the EPA. The powertrain gives drivers the option of choosing from hybrid, EV, or battery-save modes. The Jeep Wrangler 4Xe is only the beginning for Jeep, with the 2022 Grand Cherokee set to launch at the end of the year. The toe tag on the 4Xe begins at $49,805 (excluding destination fees). But the Wrangler 4Xe is merely a stepping stone with Jeep set to unveil an all-electric lineup by 2025.
