Jeep Wrangler

The Wrangler 4xe is available as a four-door 4x4 with three trims, Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon. The Wrangler 4xe is powered by a turbocharged 2L four-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that creates 270 horsepower. With the addition of the electric motors the power increases to 375 horsepower. The all-electric range is 22 miles for a combined range of 370 miles.

Jeep is leading the charge in electric technology by installing solar-powered charging stations on key trails in the U.S. so Wrangler 4xe owners can get a full charge before taking on the trails. The Jeep Brand Level II PHEV Home Charging Station not only charges faster but it also features an easy-to-use quick-release mount, a lockable, weatherproof enclosure for either indoor or outdoor installation as well as built-in Wi-Fi connectivity that lets the user control charging anytime, anywhere via a mobile app and web portal. The battery can be fully recharged in approximately 2 hours using the Jeep Level II charger.

The Sport trim is equipped with 20-inch wheels, automatic dual-zone climate control, a 9-speaker performance audio system, a 7-inch touchscreen, cruise control, 3 USB ports, and Bluetooth. The Sahara trim adds LED headlights and daytime running lights, auto-dimming rear view mirror, ambient lighting, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 120V AC power outlet, a garage door transmitter, an HD satellite radio, 7 USB ports, and voice activated navigation. The Rubicon trim of the Wrangler 4xe has a bigger axle, off-road suspension, heavy-duty shocks, 5 skid plates, and 17-inch wheels.

Editors' First Take

It was a long time coming -- like, forever and a day -- but the new Ford Bronco is here, giving off-road enthusiasts another excellent way to get a little more dirt in their diets. But the folks at Jeep were not about to sit on the sidelines and watch their frenemies in Dearborn one-up them with a more capable rig, which is why they developed the Xtreme Recon Package for the popular Wrangler Unlimited.

Like Broncos fitted with the available Sasquatch Package, Jeep's $3,995 options group gets you several off-road-focused enhancements, most importantly, 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires mounted to 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. To support the mammoth spare, Wranglers fitted with this package also gain reinforced swing gates. I mean, the last thing you want is the back door falling off while you're out on the trail. Aside from all that, you get a 4.56:1 axle ratio and a 1.5-inch suspension lift complete with unique shock absorbers.

The Xtreme Recon Package is only available on the four-door Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited models, including the fire-breathing Rubicon 392. In comparison, the Sasquatch upgrade is available across the Bronco model range including on both two- and four-door variants.
