The Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited 4xe continues to hit records and establish itself as the best-selling plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) in the United States at the current moment. Jeep says that 25% of the Wranglers configured on their “Build and Price” application on Jeep.com, includes a model from the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe lineup. Building on that hype, Jeep will be increasing the price of the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe again going into the 2022 model year.
Thanks to an order guide leaked by CarsDirect.com, we now know that the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe will be getting a $1,005 price increase across both the Sahara and Rubicon lineup. This means the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4xe will have a starting MSRP of $54,125 including destination (up from the current price of $53,120) and the 2022 version of the Rubicon 4xe will have an MSRP of $57,825 (up from the current $56,820).
Sorry Wrangler Sport fans, still no information on the Sport 4xe model.
The 2021 models have undergone several price increase since their launch, which has caused the standard Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) to rise by $4,635 (or about a 9% increase).
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe’s propulsion system combines two electric motors, a turbocharged 2.0-liter (GME-T4) inline-four-cylinder engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission for nearly silent propulsion, and enhanced 4×4 off-road capability, without EV range anxiety. This arrangement enables the Trail Rated Jeep Wrangler to retain running gear that includes solid front and rear axles, a full-time two-speed transfer case, fully articulating suspension, and 30 inches of water traversing capability.
The E Selec modes let the driver tailor the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe propulsion to the trip – Hybrid, Electric, and eSave, which conserves the battery pack charge for later use. The Wrangler Unlimited 4xe’s 17-kilowatt-hour battery pack recharges in about 2 hours on Level 2 (220-volt) power and about 12 hours on Level 1 (110-volt) household power.
According to the order guide, there are no standard equipment changes for the 2022 models. So for those who are more conscious about their money, if you have a chance to get your hands on one of the 4xe models already out there, you might want to snatch it up and have yourself some coins.
