How is the 2022 Wrangler 4xe Powered?
The basic setup of any plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is a gas engine, electric motors, and a battery pack. For the Wrangler 4xe, Jeep uses its successful 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine, one electric motor in front of the engine, another inside the transmission, and a 400-volt rechargeable battery pack. This setup provides drivers with a fuel-sipping 49 miles per gallon gas equivalent along with a 21-mile all-electric driving range, and a 440-mile combined driving range. But, what’s a Wrangler without its spectacular performance, right? To quench your thirst for on and off-road performance, the Wrangler 4xe lays down a remarkable 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of instant torque, giving you full control on the trails and effortless acceleration.
Is the Wrangler 4xe Still Capable of Off-Roading?
Since the day hybrid vehicles started to pop up, there have been concerns about their performance. However, as mentioned above, there is no lack of performance to be found with the 2022 Wrangler 4xe. In fact, the Wrangler 4xe can easily be seen as more capable than the gas-powered Wrangler. This is partially due to the transmission-mounted electric motor. This replaces the traditional torque converter, allowing up to all 470 lb-ft of torque to be sent to the four wheels instantly. Power is sent to the wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission and Selec-Trac 4×4. Selec-Trac is a full-time 4×4 system that continuously reads road conditions and makes the necessary adjustments to torque distribution to maintain optimal traction as road conditions change. The Wrangler Rubicon 4xe uses a Rock-Trac transfer case, which offers a 4:1 low gear ratio and front and rear lockers to maximize traction even on extremely rugged terrain.
Trim Levels and Features of the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe
The Wrangler 4xe lineup includes three of the Wrangler’s top trim levels, Sahara, Rubicon, and High Altitude. All 4xe models come with the Wrangler Unlimited (four-door) body style and still feature the removable top and doors and fold-down windshield, of course. Kicking off the lineup is the Sahara trim, offering heated power side mirrors, LED exterior lighting, a soft top, 20-inch alloy wheels, Alpine premium audio with nine speakers, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, ambient LED interior lighting, voice-activated navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button ignition, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Opting for the Rubicon trim will get you exclusive off-roading features such as 33-inch all-terrain tires, high-clearance fender flares, electronic sway bar disconnect, a hood with air vents, FOX shock absorbers, Rock-Trac 4×4, and exclusive Surf Blue exterior and interior accents. Topping off the lineup is the High Altitude trim, a fitting name for this well-equipped variant. The High Altitude is equipped with body-colored fender flares, a body-colored hard top, blindspot monitoring, rear parking sensors, leather-trimmed upholstery, Gloss Black 20-inch alloy wheels, side mirror-integrated turn signals, and premium dark exterior accents.
