Renowned automotive industry publication Green Car Journal named the all-new 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid model the Green SUV of the Year. The announcement was made at the 2020 Virtual Greenbuild Conference and Expo.

“The Wrangler 4xe delivers an exciting and environmentally positive way for Jeep fans to enjoy their on- and off-road experiences. Its powerful plug-in hybrid power plant brings welcome performance while enabling up to 25 miles of trail or street driving exclusively on quiet zero-emission battery power,” said Ron Cogan, editor, and publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com. 

Thanks to its 25 miles of electric-only, zero-emission, and almost silent propulsion, the Wrangler 4xe is the embodiment of a commuter-friendly, all-electric daily driver without range anxiety. In addition, the Wrangler 4xe is also the brand’s most eco-friendly vehicle that’s coupled with its full-on passion for open-air freedom. 4xe is the official name for Jeep’s global plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology. The powertrain includes a high-tech 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that’s flanked by two electric motors, a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, and a high-voltage battery pack. 

Lauded by automotive experts as the most advanced powertrain ever developed in the history of the Jeep Wrangler, the Wrangler 4xe has an impressive 50 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe offers prospective buyers a range of unprecedented performance, electric vehicle lifestyle, and unmatched benchmark off-road capability with its 375 horsepower and 0-60 mpg time of a speedy 6.0 seconds. Hybrid is the standard mode for the SUV as it mixes power from the 2.0-liter engine and electric motors, but there’s a series of E Selec mode buttons that help drivers adapt the powertrain to best suit each individual adventure. Electric mode prioritizes all-electric operation until the battery is depleted, while the eSave function saves the battery charge over time by utilizing propulsion directly from the engine.

Like the remainder of the Jeep Wrangler lineup, the 4xe is Trail Rated and comes with a full-time 4×4 two-speed transfer case, up to 30 inches of water fording capability, solid front and rear axles, and a fully articulating suspension. Drivers can access all power modes when the Wrangler 4xe’s drivetrain is shifted to 4Lo. This is the first time in the vehicle’s storied history in which the Jeep Wrangler offers buyers this much performance thanks to the integration of an electric powertrain with a 4×4 drivetrain. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is assembled at the Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio, and is scheduled to hit dealer lots at the end of 2020.
