2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe
Not many manufacturers would mess with an icon, but Jeep has taken this icon and rocketed it onto a new path, which will be applauded by many.
Jeep has taken the Wrangler and kept all the good off-road ability but has given it a 21st century powertrain and a quick change body. Some Jeep fans may take a deep breath, but this change keeps this iconic vehicle front and centre of modern technology.
The new 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a plug-in hybrid with its own strip routine! Choose from one of two models, the Sahara or Rubicon. You get Wrangler’s decades-old reputation for rugged off-road capability, and you get the freedom to strip it down almost to the chassis.
If you want that convertible wind-in-your-hair feeling, then take off the roof. With the Sky One-Touch Power Top, this is easy as pie. If you still feel too constricted, remove the doors and fold down the windshield to enjoy a completely open-air experience! All this is accomplished by removing a few bolts.
Don’t worry about the unexpected rain shower as the touchscreen is weatherproofed, so your navigation and music won’t be interrupted.
The Sahara has an MSRP of $54,995, while the Rubicon starts at $59,995.
Drive Train, Charging, and Battery Life
The 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe comes with a turbocharged 2.0L gas-powered engine coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Wrangler plug-in hybrid has a 17kWh battery pack that’ll give approximately 40 kilometres of electricity-only driving. When the Wrangler runs out of battery power, the ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) engine will take over, so you’ll never be stranded without a charge.
Charging the battery will take approximately two hours using the provided 240-volt Level II charging cable or 12 hours with the 120-volt Level I charging cable.
The Wrangler’s hybrid powertrain gives 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. These impressive numbers make it the most powerful hybrid plug-in SUV on the market today.
In addition, the Wrangler has a towing capacity of 1,588 kilograms.
Cabin and Technology
All Jeep SUVs, including the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe, are luxury SUVs, and the cabin reflects this. The cabin seats five adults comfortably in either cloth or leather-trimmed seats.
Jeep’s UConnect technology, running on an 8.4-inch touchscreen, will keep you connected, whether you’re in the city or out enjoying the Canadian wilderness. The system has Bluetooth, Apple’s CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, and hands-free calling.
The 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe may be a rugged off-roader, but it’s also a competent on-road vehicle equipped with all the latest safety aids, such as forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path traffic detection, and rear park assist.
Offroad, there are lockable differentials and speed and torque control for steep gradients.
The 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe gives you the best of all worlds. You get a luxury vehicle with a long history of superior vehicles, a rugged off-roader capable of going anywhere, and a competent overall car. Furthermore, you get the hybrid technology with emission-free motoring before the gas-powered engine cuts in. Fast charging will get your battery pack reloaded while you have a meal.
