NowCar Jeep Wrangler 4xe AutoTech Awards

Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the Hybrid Technology Solution of the Year

Written By, Jordan R

"The Jeep Wrangler 4xe reaches a new audience by creatively mixing advanced propulsion with a staple in the off-road world…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."

Words spoken by Bryan Vaughn, President of AutoTech Breakthrough Awards, about the newest revolution in automotive hybrid technology. We’re talking about the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, obviously, as mentioned above. A completely new look for Jeep vehicles and maybe many more hybrid options from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA, now part of Stellantis), the Wrangler 4xe is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine and two electric motors that are also powered by a high-voltage battery pack. Together, this powertrain is able to generate 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. It may be not much, but giving a newfound power to Jeepers will surely spread like…wildfire.

Some Jeepers may have been a little worried about how a hybrid option would affect their ability to go on adventures and live life to the fullest. And although we’re pretty sure more than half of Jeep owners aren’t mudding it up and taking off-road paths to some secret mountain stream, but for those that do, than Jeepers also know that going off-road, trekking the unbeaten path, and rock crawling calls for a lot of torque and a variety of ratios we won’t get into. Well, it’s a great advantage to have a plug-in hybrid powertrain, because electric motors start generating torque at 0 RPMs. For those curious about going the distance, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe isn’t just about performance – it also offers a total driving range of nearly 400 miles.

What does AutoTech Breakthrough have to do with this? We admit, it’s not a very well-known name amongst the many automotive publications out there that review and evaluate vehicles all year. Although we love all those publications that help inform consumers and highlight the best vehicles to buy every year, AutoTech combs through the industry every year for exactly what the name calls for – Automotive Technology.

AutoTech is actually a subset of Tech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence and recognition platform for global technology innovation and leadership in the industry. When it comes to the AutoTech Breakthrough Awards, it’s all about highlighting automotive technologies, services, companies, and products that deserve to get recognized. The AutoTech Breakthrough Awards cover many categories, including Connected Car, Electric Vehicles, Engine Tech, Automotive CyberSecurity, Sensor Technology, Traffic Tech, Vehicle Telematics, and more.

Although the Jeep Wrangler 4xe and other 4xe models are still making their way to American dealerships, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be sold globally and is being assembled at the FCA Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio. Yeah, we bet someone caught that. There are more Jeep 4xe models aside from the Wrangler, although a classic of the Jeep name. The first Jeep models to get a 4xe powertrain, surprisingly, were the Jeep Compass and Jeep Renegade, with First-Edition models released overseas just before COVID-19 spread around.

When the Jeep Wrangler 4xe and other 4xe models do land stateside, our consumers can easily purchase a new Jeep 4xe model online at NowCar.
