The Wrangler Unlimited 4xe features the most-advanced powertrain ever put into a Wrangler.

The Wrangler Unlimited 4xe maximizes efficiency with an estimated 50 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). Making a combined 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, the 4xe models can do a 0 to 60 mph time of 6-seconds and provide a total of 400 miles driving range.
“The Jeep Wrangler 4xe reaches a new audience by creatively mixing advanced propulsion with a staple in the off-road world,” said Bryan Vaughn, President of AutoTech Breakthrough Awards. “It is this combination of technology without sacrificing the core capabilities of the Wrangler that has earned the vehicle our Hybrid Technology Solution of the Year award.”
4xe models proudly wear the Jeep “Trail Rated” badge. All Wrangler Unlimited 4xe models are equipped with solid front and rear axles, a full-time 4×4 two-speed transfer case, fully-articulating suspension, and features 30-inches of water fording capability.
With the global market for autonomous vehicles will be worth $556.67 billion by 2026, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe proves to be a pivotal point for the future of the iconic off-road brand. The Wrangler Unlimited 4xe models will start to arrive in dealerships in the United States next month.
