Wrangler Plug-in Wins ‘Green’ Award

By Staff Writer November 13, 2020

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid has been named Green SUV of the Year by Green Car Journal. The announcement was made recently at the Virtual Greenbuild Conference and Expo.

The Wrangler 4xe delivers up to 25 miles of nearly silent, zero-emission, electric-only propulsion, making it commuter friendly as an all-electric daily driver without range anxiety. The 4xe is Jeep's global name for its plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology.

The Wrangler 4xe's hybrid powertrain combines a high-tech, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Torque from the electric motors in the Wrangler 4xe arrives instantly on demand from the driver. The powertrain also delivers fuel-saving, start-stop operation of the engine.

The most advanced powertrain ever developed for a Jeep Wrangler maximizes efficiency with an estimated 50 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). With 375 horsepower and a 0-60 MPH time of just 6.0 seconds, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe delivers performance and benchmark off-road capability.
