2022 Jeep Wrangler 4Xe is one of the most popular models of Jeep Wrangler. It was manufactured in between 2000 and 2018 and changed its shape several times with every new generation.
However, the most important thing that car owners notice is that there were two different types or generations released under the same name under two manufacturers. The first generation came out in 2011 and was called Wrangler Sahara. This type got gas engine, bigger tires, LED headlights and LED taillights setup.
Jeep has an extensive lineup of vehicles in the market which is known for its capability and rugged design. All the Jeep models have been loved by people due to their versatility, quality and style. But, now Jeep is planning to bring new model which is called the Jeep Wrangler 4XE.
The news about the upcoming Jeep Wrangler 4×4 has been making lots of waves. There is also a lot of speculation since it was almost a year since we heard from the company about its next big thing and thus far, only very few details have been released. The latest rumors are suggesting that only one trim level will be available between 2018 and 2022. Anyway, let’s cut straight to the chase: what’s new? So here are some new details about this car which we can expect from it!
Jeep Wrangler 4xe Overview:
Jeep’s new Wrangler 4xe is the most eco-friendly and off-road capable Wrangler yet, featuring unmatched features and 100% unstoppable. In addition to improved performance, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe delivers 380 horsepower and torque of 637 Nm, with acceleration from zero to 100 km/h taking just 6.4 seconds.
The 4×4 can drive in the “pure electric” mode, with a never-seen-before low-end control, and provides a zero-emission range of over 50 km (in the urban WLTP cycle), making it suitable for everyday city driving. You can recharge the battery in less than three hours, charging at 7.4 kWh, with various scheduling options, and with the Max Regen feature you can increase the battery charge when coasting.
As a result of this arrangement, Jeep Wrangler Trail Rated retains its active, on-demand full-time four-wheel drive system, such as Select Trac, Rock-Trac, and Tru-Lok front- and rear-axle locking systems. A combination of a turbo gasoline engine and an electric motor results in instant torque and improved performance on the trail, ensuring the undisputed off-road champion remains unstoppable.
It’s off-road where 4xe takes the Wrangler Plug-in Hybrid to the next level, with full-electric four-wheel drive for benchmark all-terrain performance, complete safety, and the pleasure of listening to nature’s sounds.
It offers three propulsion modes: Hybrid, Electric, and eSave, which conserves the battery pack charge for later use. A full charge of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe can be completed in less than three hours at 7.4 kWh with free2move and mopar’s easyWallbox charging solutions. Jeep 4xe is a new version of the Jeep 4wd cars that adds sustainability, efficiency, and safety to the concept of capability.
Including the Renegade 4xe, the Compass 4xe, and the new Wrangler 4xe, the Jeep 4xe range offers many of the advantages of electric driving, including low running costs, quiet driving, and zero emissions in full-electric mode. Jeep 4xe models also come with the flexibility of a conventional internal combustion engine, so you won’t have to worry about a limited range when you travel long distances.
Engine & Transmission
The second electric motor, energized by a lithium-ion battery set under the rear seats, drives the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe. It is a belt-driven starter/generator, while the first is an electric motor. It produces 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque and is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission through a standard four-wheel drive system.
With a domestic 115-volt setup, it would take about 12 hours to recharge the battery. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the electric-only range is 22 miles. Recharging the battery on a 240-volt supply takes about 2.5 hours. A combination of city and highway driving is estimated to yield 49 mpge for the Wrangler 4xe. It is estimated to return 20 mpge for regular hybrid operation.
The 2022 Wrangler 4xe can cover 370 miles with a full battery and a full gas tank since it has the same torque as the Rubicon 392, whose combined figure is 14 mpg.
- 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 plus two electric motors
- 375 total horsepower @ 5,250 rpm
- 470 lb-ft total torque @ 3,000 rpm
- EPA combined fuel economy: 49 MPGe (gas & electric)/20 mpg (gas)
- Electric-only range: 22 miles
The 4xe remains one of the most powerful variants and the most fuel efficient model in the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited range. It’s kind of narrow in the cabin, so shoulder room is limited, especially in the back row.
This vehicle has comfortable front seats and a high driving position that makes it a great choice for off-roading. But the front seats can’t be powered, because the mud that’s so enjoyable outside can be easily hosed out when it gets inside.
As standard, the car comes with drain plugs. This has to be considered a virtue. Split/folding rear seats are also offered, along with a generous 38.2 inches of legroom in the rear. With the rear seats up and folded, there’s between 27.7 and 67.4 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s pretty good, but non-PHEV Unlimited models have 31.7/72.4 cubic feet. With contrast stitching in Electric Blue, the Rubicon 4xe’s trim name is stitched into the front seats.
The 4xe PHEV stands out from the rest of the four-door Wrangler lineup due to its small details. The Electric Blue tow hooks, for instance (two in front, one at the rear). Or the 4Xe hood decal in the same color. There’s also a plug-in socket cover (like a fuel tank flap) on the left front.
There is also an optional hard top with a rear wiper, washer, and defroster, like the Freedom Top, available as an option. The Unlimited 4xe also has removable doors and roofs, folding windshields, and folding soft tops with sunroofs.
The Rubicon has rock rails that protect the sills as well as the fuel tank and transfer case under the vehicle. A skid plate under the vehicle protects the fuel tank and the transmission’s transfer case.
