With classic Jeep styling, the 2022 Wrangler 4xe presents bold and rugged off-road appeal thanks to its imposing stance, chiselled lines, and utilitarian accessories. While one can be forgiven for thinking that it’s just another Wrangler—though, that in itself downplays the splendid history of the SUV that birthed the segment—small details, like the Jeep hard badge with blue accents and 4xe badge, separate this hybrid from its predecessors. The hallmark style of the Wrangler is intact with the ability to remove the top and doors, only this time you can put your Jeep into Electric Mode for a nearly silent ride; all the better to enjoy the quietude of nature with.
You’ve already made the choice to reduce your carbon footprint, why not make the choice to treat yourself to one of several high-quality interior materials? From easy-clean fabric upholstery to buttery soft leather, the range of luxurious materials the 2022 Wrangler 4xe offers is exactly what you expect from a Jeep. Distinctive surf blue accents and contrast stitching decorate the cabin, offering another hint to the keenest observers that this isn’t your grandparents’ Wrangler.
It’s under the hood that the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe really distinguishes itself, offering exceptional Jeep 4×4 capability alongside impressive hybrid-powered performance. A turbocharged, 2.0-litre DOHC direct-injection PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) engine pairs with a 17-kWh lithium-ion battery pack—along with regenerative braking technology and an 8-speed transmission—to offer a surplus of horsepower and torque alongside near-unbelievable fuel economy. With 470 lb-ft of instant torque available, and a 0-100 km/h of just under six seconds, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe dispels the notion that hybrid electric vehicles can’t produce power like their gas-powered peers.
Of course, the Wrangler 4xe is still a Jeep, through-and-through, meaning it’s been designed to tackle the toughest conditions without slowing down. That means a waterproof battery, allowing you to ford streams up to 75 cm deep. It also means a 4:1 low-range gear ratio courtesy of the Rock-Trac® 4×4 system with Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle locks. As well, in addition to an all-electric range of up to 34 km, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe has a total hybrid driving range up to 595 km. So you can plan your trip around the charging stations on the way, or you can just go and explore—the choice is yours.

Safety & Technology
