The new 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe
Freshly landed in 2021, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe has a frankly very impressive technical sheet, moreover, it consists of elements that give it the title of the most powerful Wrangler ever built, if we exclude of course the Rubicon 392 and its 470 horsepower. For this new vintage, unsurprisingly, the 4xe 2022 retains essentially the same characteristics of the 1st edition . Here are the different models:
- Unlimited Sahara
- Unlimited Sahara High Altitude
- Unlimited Rubicon
We intentionally omitted the prices, since these are still not available for the new year, however we obviously expect very similar prices. Its plug-in hybrid engine also makes it the most energy efficient, here are the figures:
|Unlimited Sahara||4 cyl. 2.0L Turbo + 2 Electric Motors||375 HP||470 lb‑ft|
|Unlimited Sahara High Altitude||4 cyl. 2.0L Turbo + 2 Electric Motors||375 HP||470 lb‑ft|
|Unlimited Rubicon||4 cyl. 2.0L Turbo + 2 Electric Motors||375 HP||470 lb‑ft|
An 8-speed VHR automatic transmission and a 17.3 kWh battery complete the engine. Driving in all-electric mode, you can travel up to 40 kilometres, its consumption rating is only 4.7 Le/100 km and to reach the speed allowed on the highway, it will only take 6 seconds for the Wrangler 4xe reaches 100 km/h.
You might be wondering if its off-road skills have taken a hit. Well, actually yes, but better. You see, since the battery is located in the center, it not only lowers its center of gravity, but also allows it to better distribute the weight, which is 50/50. Results; the new 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe gives you more stable driving dynamics as well as more precise steering. But in addition, it retains its formidable attributes for exceptional off-road driving, here are some of them:
- Selec-Trac or Rock-Trac full-time 4x4 system;
- Dana front and rear axles;
- Front and rear anti-roll bars;
- A reinforced suspension;
- Protective plates.
The 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe stands out from the others with blue trim, which can be found on the hood, seats, tow hooks, dashboard, and of course the logos, among others. Among its amenities, the 4xe offers you:
- A GPS navigation system;
- The Uconnect 4C NAV multimedia center;
- Leather upholstery;
- Heated exterior mirrors;
- Push button start.
Depending on the version, the 4xe is adorned with a 3-section hardtop in the same color as the body or the black Sunrider soft top, 17 or 20-inch wheels. However, all include a premium Alpine audio system, 8.4-inch touchscreen, leather steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, air conditioning, LED mood lighting, door opener garage door opener and the Parkview rear view camera.
