Earlier this fall, Wards released its annual list of the 10 Best Engines and Propulsions Systems list. The new Jeep® Wrangler 4xe, available here at Rothrock Motors in Allentown, Pennsylvania, earned a spot on this exclusive list.
This new SUV launched earlier this year, but already its propulsion system is gaining traction due to its impressive efficiency.
This has been a hit with consumers. In the second quarter of 2021, the Wrangler 4xe was the number one PHEV in terms of sales here in the US, and roughly 25% of all Jeep® Wrangler sales now include this ultra-efficient propulsion system.
This system takes the power of the 2.0-liter I-4 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and marries it with two electric motors. Not only is the Wrangler 4xe built to be highly efficient, but it also maintains the tough off-road attitude that Wrangler drivers have come to expect, with features like a full-time two-speed transfer case and a fully articulating suspension. Plus, it can still ford 30 inches of water.
“The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a clear example that you can have the best of both worlds: legendary Jeep capability combined with an electrified, eco-friendly package that allows you to enjoy nature in almost absolute silence,” remarked Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand Chief Executive Officer. “The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is already a success around the globe and shortly after launch, it became the number one selling PHEV in America, showcasing that 4xe is the new 4×4.”
