All-New Jeep® Avenger 4xe Will Debut Tomorrow, For Europe

You Can Watch The Reveal Live On MoparInsiders.com

Since its launch last year, the Jeep® Avenger (JJ) has been an important part of the brand’s international lineup. As the first all-electric vehicle from the American adventure brand, the Avenger was designed as a global vehicle. Designed in Italy and manufactured in Poland, the Avenger is primarily marketed in Europe. Jeep has rolled out the Avenger to other markets like Turkey, Morocco, Japan, and South Korea, with Australia and New Zealand joining the fold later this year. However, Jeep continues not to offer the subcompact crossover in the U.S., Canada, and China.

Offered as a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) or a mild-hybrid, the Avenger is based on the STLA Small architecture, an evolution of the Common Modular Platform (CMP) or (eCMP for the electric model) originally developed by PSA Group and shared with the Peugeot 2008, Opel Mokka, DS 3 Crossback, Fiat 600, and the new Alfa Romeo Junior

Being a subcompact B-segment crossover doesn’t mean the Avenger isn’t functional. Slotting just below the Renegade, the Avenger offers 7.9 inches of ground clearance, 20 degrees of approach angle, and 32 degrees of departure angle. The only downfall of the Avenger has been the lack of a four-wheel drive (4×4) model, something the rest of the lineup has. Avenger customers have had to settle with Jeep’s “Select-Terrain drive modes, which give the Avenger various states of customizable traction control (with Normal, Eco, Sport, Snow, Mud, and Sand functions). But that’s about to change.

Jeep unveiled an Avenger 4xe Concept at the vehicle’s October 2022 reveal at the Paris Motor Show. While not much was said about its capabilities, the more rugged 4xe Concept was Jeep’s promise to offer more off-road capability to the vehicle.

Fast-forward to tomorrow and Jeep will unveil its production version of the Avenger 4xe. Powered by a 1.2-liter mild-hybrid powertrain, the Avenger 4xe will have two 21 kW (28 horsepower) electric motors mounted on the rear axle and a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission, giving it true 4×4 capability. 

The unveiling will be live-streamed here tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. EDT or 4:30 p.m. CET.
