2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe

The Jeep® brand has presented its new Wrangler 4xe, denoting the appearance of the most proficient, actually progressed and eco-accommodating Wrangler ever. Jeep Wrangler 4xe models will be accessible in Europe, China and the United States by mid 2021. The Jeep Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe models - presented in 2019 in Geneva - started showing up in Europe this late spring. The new Jeep 4xe models follow the presentation of the Jeep Grand Commander PHEV in China in 2019. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe's module crossover powertrain is fit for up to 25 miles of almost quiet, zero-emanation, electric-just impetus, making it suburbanite well disposed as an all-electric every day driver without go uneasiness and the most able and eco-accommodating Jeep vehicle rough terrain - joined with the outdoors opportunity that lone Jeep Wrangler offers. 
Jeep will offer jolt alternatives on every nameplate in the following scarcely any years as it endeavors to turn into the pioneer in eco-accommodating premium innovation. Charged Jeep vehicles will convey the 4xe identification. Jeep electric vehicles will be the most effective and mindful Jeep vehicles ever, taking execution, 4x4 capacity and driver certainty to the following level. 
"Our Jeep 4xe vehicles will be the most effective, capable and skilled that the brand has ever made," said Christian Meunier, Global President of Jeep Brand - FCA. "We are resolved to make Jeep the greenest SUV brand. The jolt of the Jeep arrangement will permit workers to travel exclusively on electric force, conveying an effective and fun on-street experience and offering a capacity to appreciate significantly more Jeep ability rough terrain in almost complete silence."The Jeep Wrangler 4xe's serious powertrain gives an extraordinary on-and rough terrain experience through the blend of two electric engines, a high-voltage battery pack, an innovative 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 motor and vigorous TorqueFlite eight-speed programmed transmission. The most progressive powertrain ever produced for a Jeep Wrangler expands productivity with an expected 50 miles for every gallon proportional (MPGe) while disposing of range uneasiness, conveying unadulterated electric activity for most day by day drives. 
Force from the electric engines in the Wrangler 4xe's half and half powertrain shows up in a split second on request from the driver. The powertrain additionally conveys fuel-sparing, consistent, start-stop activity of the motor. 

Jeep has shown 4x4 capacity administration for almost 80 years. Jeep vehicles were the first to highlight a programmed full-time four-wheel-drive framework, first 4:1 exchange case and first electronic front influence bar disengage framework. Combining jolt into the item setup is a characteristic development. 
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be sold all around the world, with electric vehicle (EV) charge port fittings customized to explicit locales. It is gathered at FCA's Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio. 
Wrangler 4xe Advanced Powertrain Combines Electric Motors, Turbo Engine 
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe powertrain coordinates two electric engines and a 400-volt battery pack with an eco-friendly, turbocharged, four-chamber motor and TorqueFlite eight-speed programmed transmission. This arrangement amplifies the proficiency of the half and half impetus parts and mates them with the Wrangler's incredibly famous and demonstrated driveline. 
Key components of the Wrangler 4xe powertrain incorporate 375 strength (280 kW), 470 lb.- ft. (637 N•m) of force and an expected 50 MPGe from the accompanying parts: 
2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 
Motor mounted engine generator unit 
Transmission-mounted engine generator unit coordinated into eight-speed programmed transmission (ZF 8P75PH) 
400-volt, 17-kWh, 96-cell lithium-particle, nickel manganese cobalt battery pack 
The 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 motor is important for FCA's Global Medium Engine family. The cutting edge, direct-infusion motor uses a twin-scroll, low-latency turbocharger mounted legitimately to the chamber head, alongside a devoted cooling circuit for the turbocharger, consumption air and choke body for uncommon responsiveness, execution and eco-friendliness. 
A high-voltage, fluid cooled engine generator unit mounts at the front of the motor, supplanting the ordinary alternator. A hearty belt interfaces the engine generator to the motor driving rod pulley. The engine generator turns the motor for almost consistent, fuel-sparing, start-stop activity and creates power for the battery pack. The Wrangler 4xe doesn't utilize a customary 12-volt starter engine. The Wrangler 4xe is furnished with a 12-volt battery to run frill. 
The second high-voltage engine generator is mounted at the front of the transmission case, supplanting the ordinary force converter of a programmed transmission. 
Two grasps work to oversee force and force from the e-engine and motor. A twofold grasp (on/off) is mounted between the motor and the engine. At the point when this grasp is open there is no mechanical linkage between the motor and the e-engine, which empowers it to drive the Wrangler 4xe in electric-just mode. 
At the point when the parallel grip is shut, force from the 2.0-liter motor and the e-engine stream consolidate through the programmed transmission. A variable grip mounted behind the e-engine oversees commitment with the transmission to improve drivability and effectiveness. 
Battery Pack Preserves Interior Room 
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe's 400-volt, 17-kWh, 96-cell lithium-particle battery pack utilizes nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) graphite science. The pack and controls mount underneath the second-column seat, where it is shielded from outside components. The Wrangler 4xe's second-line seat is updated, permitting the base pad to flip forward for admittance to the battery. 
Encased in an aluminum lodging, the pack is fitted with a committed warming and cooling circuit to save the battery at its ideal temperature for best execution. The temperature control circuit incorporates a devoted warmer unit and a chiller that utilizes the Wrangler cooling refrigerant to lessen coolant temperature when required. 
The Wrangler 4xe mixture framework incorporates an Integrated Dual Charging Module (ICDM), which joins a battery charger and a DC/DC converter in a solitary unit that is more minimized than two separate parts, and a cutting edge Power Inverter Module (PIM) that is diminished in size. These parts are housed and shielded from harm in a steel structure mounted underneath the battery pack. 
All high-voltage gadgets, including the wiring between the battery pack and the electric engines, are fixed and waterproof. Like all Trail Rated Jeep Wranglers, the Wrangler 4xe is fit for water fording up to 30 inches (76 cm). 
The electric charge port highlights a push-open/push-close spread and is situated on the left front cowl of the Wrangler 4xe for advantageous nose-in stopping at charging areas. The charge port incorporates LED pointers of charging status. A LED battery level screen is mounted on head of the instrument board, making it simple to check battery condition of charge initially during charging. 

Wrangler 4xe E Selec Modes 
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe driver can tailor the half breed powertrain to best suit each excursion, regardless of whether it is filling the requirements of most every day workers in unadulterated electric activity, an evening to remember or unobtrusively investigating nature rough terrain. 
The Wrangler 4xe half breed powertrain has three methods of activity, known as E Selec. The driver can choose the ideal powertrain mode through catches mounted on the instrument board, to one side of the guiding wheel. Notwithstanding the mode chose, the Wrangler 4xe works as crossover once the battery approaches its base condition of charge. 
Half breed: The default mode mixes force from the 2.0-liter motor and electric engine. In this mode, the powertrain will utilize battery power first, at that point include impetus from the 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 when the battery arrives at least condition of charge 
Electric: The powertrain works on zero-outflow electric force just until the battery arrives at the base charge or the driver demands more force, (for example, all the way open choke), which draws in the 2.0-liter motor 
eSave: Prioritizes drive from the 2.0-liter motor, sparing the battery charge for sometime in the future, for example, EV going romping or metropolitan zones where inward ignition impetus is confined. The driver can likewise pick between Battery Save and Battery Charge during eSave by means of the Hybrid Electric Pages in the Uconnect screenTo help optimize the benefit of the E Selec modes, the Wrangler 4xe driver information display and the Uconnect touchscreen feature Eco Coaching Pages. The Eco Coaching Pages let owners monitor power flow and see the impact of regenerative braking, schedule charging times to take advantage of lower electric rates, and view their driving history with a detail of electric and gasoline usage.
Regenerative braking is a key part of the Wrangler 4xe eco-friendly equation. When the driver steps on the brake pedal, the powertrain control engages the maximum available regenerative braking, up to 0.25 g, from the electric motors to slow the vehicle, augmented with the Wrangler's traditional friction brakes. The regenerative braking feature also extends the replacement period for brake pads.
With 4x4 engaged, all four wheels feed torque for regenerative braking, maximizing the energy recovery. Electricity due to regenerative braking is fed to the battery pack to maintain or increase the state of charge.
The Wrangler 4xe also features the ability to maximize regenerative energy production via a driver-selectable Max Regen feature.
When Max Regen is engaged, a more assertive regenerative braking calibration occurs when the vehicle sees zero throttle input from the driver (coasting). Max Regen can slow the Wrangler 4xe faster than standard regenerative braking and generate more electricity for the battery pack. Once selected, the Max Regen feature remains engaged until driver deselects it.
Off-road Legend
Jeep Wrangler's heritage is defined by its legendary off-road capability. All Wrangler 4xe power modes are available when the drivetrain is shifted to 4Lo. The seamless integration of electric power into the 4x4 drivetrain elevates the Wrangler 4xe to new levels of off-road performance.
Enthusiasts will find that the instant availability of torque from the Wrangler 4xe's electric motor delivers a more precise and controlled driving experience for climbing and crawling - there's no need to build up engine rpm to get the tires to move, minimizing driveline shock loading and maximizing control and speed.
In EV mode, the Wrangler 4xe treads lightly and silently, conserving fuel and allowing occupants to focus solely on the sights and full sounds of nature.
The new Jeep Wrangler 4xe is available in three models: 4xe, Sahara 4xe and Rubicon 4xe.

The intuitive system allows the driver to set it and forget it in any environment.
An available Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential provides extra grip and capability in low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe models carry the Rock-Trac 4x4 system that includes a two-speed transfer case with a 4:1 low-range gear ratio, full-time 4x4, front and rear next-generation Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle lockers. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe has an impressive crawl ratio of 77.2:1, which makes scaling any obstacle easy. Wrangler Rubicon models also offer improved articulation and total suspension travel with help from a front axle, electronic sway-bar disconnect. Together, these components contribute to the maximum off-road prowess Wrangler Rubicon is known for.
The Wrangler 4xe includes Selec-Speed Control with Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control. This allows drivers to control vehicle speed up and down steep, rugged grades with the transmission shift lever.
Like every Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe models wear a Trail Rated badge that signifies legendary 4x4 capability with equipment that includes:
Skid plates and front and rear tow hooks
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe approach angle of 44 degrees, breakover angle of 22.5 degrees, departure angle of 35.6 degrees and ground clearance of 10.8 inches (27.4 cm)

Up to 30 inches (76 cm) of water fording
All 4xe models maintain Wrangler's renowned ease of customization with a host of Jeep Performance Parts from Mopar, available when the vehicle arrives in showrooms.
'Electric Blue' Design Cues Mark Wrangler 4xe
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe maintains a sculptural design aesthetic that's bold and functional, with a wide stance and trapezoidal wheel flares.
Exclusive content identifies the Jeep Wrangler 4xe as the most technologically advanced Wrangler ever. New Electric Blue coloring on the front and rear Rubicon tow hooks stands out against the black bumpers. The unique blue coloring also traces the Rubicon name on the hood, Jeep badge and the Trail Rated badge. Select Easter egg design cues also receive the Electric Blue shade. The black hood decal is outlined in the special color with "4xe" that lets the body color show through.

Inside, the Wrangler 4xe Rubicon includes unique Electric Blue stitching on the seats and trim.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is available in 10 exterior colors: Black, Bright White, Firecracker Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Hella Yella, Hydro Blue (late availability), Sting-Gray, Snazzberry, Sarge and Billet Silver Metallic. Two Wrangler interior options are available in the 4xe version: Black with Heritage Tan cloth and Black with Dark Saddle leather.
Jeep Renegade 4xe and Jeep Compass 4xe
Presented globally in March 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show, the new Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe are the first Jeep models with plug-in hybrid electric technology available in Europe. Their arrival was celebrated in January with the exclusive First Edition - a special launch edition made available for customer previews and pre-booking on a dedicated website for select European markets. Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe began arriving in the European market this summer. Both Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe models feature a no-compromise hybrid solution that integrates the unmatched technical layout of each Jeep SUV and takes their capability to the next level through some of the most advanced technology, which combines enhanced performance (up to 240 horsepower), improved safety (four-wheel drive is always available) and low environmental impact (less than 50 g/km of CO2 in the hybrid mode).
The combination of a 1.3-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and the electric unit guarantees performance and extraordinary driving pleasure: acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 7.5 seconds and full electric top speed is 130 km/h, which reaches 200 km/h in the hybrid mode.
With the new hybrid technology, Jeep Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe further improve their benchmark off-road capability courtesy of the greater torque offered by the combination between the two power sources. Thanks to the new Jeep 4xe technology, traction to the rear axle is not provided by a prop shaft, but through the dedicated electric motor. This allows the two axles to be separated and control the torque independently in a more effective way than a mechanical system, giving instant electric boost to the rear wheels when needed.
The new Jeep Renegade 4xe and Jeep Compass 4xe began arriving in Jeep dealerships across Europe this summer with a full lineup to include Limited, S and Trailhawk trims, all with four-wheel-drive configuration.
