Jeep has increased the starting price of the Wrangler 4xe by $3,030 – from an initial $49,490 to $52,520, with no intelligible explanation WHY.
Probably, this is because the automotive industry is currently booming. Prices have risen both in primary and secondary markets, and the demand for popular models is higher than before.
The Wrangler 4xe is the first plug-in hybrid Jeep in North America, and, as the manufacturer claimed, the “most technologically advanced Wrangler ever.”
Now the pricing for the Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the following: $52,520 for the Sahara grade, $56,220 for Rubicon, and $58,340 for High Altitude.
Jeep started production of this version in mid-December 2020. Since then, the Wrangler 4xe has become the best-selling PHEV in the USA (again, according to Jeep).
69,019 Wranglers were sold here in the second quarter of this year, but we actually don’t know how many plug-in hybrids are among them (suppose, at least 12,000 units). For comparison: the Toyota Prius Prime sales in Q2 2021 amounted to 11,863 cars.
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe comes with AWD, a 17-kWh battery pack that provides 21 miles of all-electric range. The total range is nearly 400 miles.
The vehicle’s plug-in hybrid system comprises a 2.0-liter gasoline turbocharged I-4 engine and a motor-generator unit integrated into an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The peak system output is 280 kW (375 hp) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. EPA estimates the Wrangler 4xe at 49 MPGe.
