For the EMEA region, the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe lineup consists of the exclusive 80th Anniversary “First Edition”, luxurious Sahara 4xe, and the off-road-oriented Rubicon 4xe. All three models will utilize the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe’s plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain using the turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder, the direct injection motor uses a twin-scroll, low-inertia turbocharger for exceptional responsiveness and fuel efficiency. The engine allows the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe to have additional range once the initial charge of about 25 miles range is depleted.

The powertrain also uses a high-voltage liquid-cooled motor-generator mounted at the front of the engine. The motor-generator system replaces the conventional alternator and spins the engine for nearly seamless fuel-saving, start-stop operation, and generates electricity for the 400-volt, 17-kWh, 96-cell lithium-ion battery pack located under the rear seat. A second high-voltage motor-generator is mounted to the front of the transmission case and is key for the pure electric operation of the Wrangler.

The electrified powertrain features a total output of 375 horsepower (280 kW), 470 lb.-ft. (637 N•m) of torque, and a 49 MPGe rating. The system can propel the Wrangler to a 0 to 60 mph time in just 6-seconds.

Off-road is where the new 4xe technology takes the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe to the next level by offering four-wheel-drive (4×4) in full-electric mode. This provides Wrangler Unlimited 4xe models with benchmark all-terrain performance thanks to its instant torque-on-demand without emissions.
