The Jeep Wrangler 4XE plug-in hybrid has been a sales success for the Jeep brand since launching earlier this year. Indeed it is a compelling choice offering all the ruggedness the Wrangler nameplate is known for while having the ability to drive solely on electric power. The 4XE powertrain puts out 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque with the ability to drive up to 21 miles on electricity before the gas motor kicks in.
Now, according to a report on Motor1, it seems as it will cost buyers in the U.S $1,220 more to put a Wrangler 4XE in their garage. The price increase spans both Sahara and Rubicon trims which now start at $51,025 and $54,725, respectively, plus a destination charge of $1,495.
Canadians will feel the sting as well, with both Sahara and Rubicon 4XE models getting a price increase of $1,995 Canadian. A Sahara 4XE now starts at $56,990, while the Rubicon 4XE starts at $61,990.
Jeep will have a full range of 4XE models in showrooms over the next few years and recently teased the 2-row WL74 Grand Cherokee Summit 4XE during the Stellantis EV Day press conference.
