Editors' First Take

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is one of the most exciting plug-in hybrids to go on sale in a long time. It has a 2.0-liter turbo I4 engine, two electric motors and a 17-kilowatt-hour battery, producing a total output of 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It'll go 21 miles on electric power alone and can be charged in two hours from a Level 2 charger. And it's a plug-in, but it's still a Jeep: It'll go just about anywhere.
