Jeep® has long been synonymous with ruggedness and adventure, and their latest model, the Jeep Avenger 4xe, is no exception. Unveiled to a group of European journalists, the Avenger 4xe builds on the success of the original Avenger (JJ), offering a modern twist with its hybrid powertrain and all-wheel-drive (AWD) capabilities.

Eric Laforge, Head of Jeep Brand in Enlarged Europe, stated, “Avenger is one of Jeep’s biggest success stories, with over 90,000 orders from final customers, of which almost 30% are fully electric. In the wake of this success, Avenger 4xe will be the new benchmark in the B-SUV segment, offering exclusive design, top performance, and the full expression of Jeep’s legacy in AWD.”

At the heart of the Jeep Avenger 4xe is an innovative hybrid powertrain that seamlessly merges the benefits of electric and internal combustion engine (ICE) technologies.

  • Hybrid System: The Avenger 4xe features a 48-volt hybrid system with a robust 1.2-liter turbocharged engine. This engine produces 136 horsepower (101 kW), providing a strong foundation for city driving and off-road adventures.
  • Electric Motors: Dual 21 kW (28 horsepower) electric motors at the front and rear complement the turbo engine. These motors enhance the vehicle’s power and efficiency, allowing full-electric driving at low speeds and boosting performance when needed.
  • Transmission: An automatic 6-speed dual-clutch transmission ensures smooth gear changes and optimal performance. This setup allows the vehicle to switch seamlessly between electric and hybrid modes.
  • Performance Specs: The Avenger 4xe delivers a maximum power output of 136 hp (101 kW) and can reach speeds of up to 194 km/h (120 mph). It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 9.5 seconds, making it quick and responsive.

All-Wheel Drive Capability –

One of the standout features of the Avenger 4xe is its all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, which enhances its performance across various terrains.

  • Traction: The smart AWD system ensures that all-wheel drive is available whenever required. At low speeds (between -30 and +30 km/h or -18 and +18 mph), traction on all four wheels is permanent with a 50:50 split. This setup is ideal for off-road conditions and provides maximum grip.
  • Variable Distribution: At medium speeds (30 to 90 km/h or 18 to 56 mph), the rear axle drive activates only when needed. At high speeds (above 90 km/h or 56 mph), the front drive becomes permanent to minimize fuel consumption.
  • Torque Distribution: The system can distribute torque based on demand, ensuring optimal performance and fuel efficiency.
  • Ground Clearance: The Avenger 4xe boasts a ground clearance of 210 mm (8.3 inches), 10 mm (0.4 inches) higher than the front-wheel-drive model. This allows for better maneuverability over obstacles.
  • Water Fording: It can ford water up to 400 mm (15.7 inches) deep, making it suitable for traversing streams and flooded paths.
  • Off-Road Angles: Improved off-road angles include a 22° approach, 21° breakover, and 35° departure, allowing for better handling on steep and uneven terrains.

E-Boost Function –

A highlight of the Avenger 4xe’s performance capabilities is the E-Boost function available in Sport Mode.

  • Enhanced Power: This function maximizes the hybrid system’s power and torque output, delivering an extra boost for more spirited driving. It is very similar to the Dodge Hornet R/T’s Powershot function.
  • Dynamic Driving: The E-Boost ensures that the Avenger 4xe remains responsive and agile, providing an exhilarating driving experience whether on-road or off-road.


Selec-Terrain® Modes –
