Ready to feel all of the power of a Jeep SUV while traveling further per tank?
The new 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe has all of the speed and power the Jeep brand is known for but now as a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle.
Named the 2021 Green SUV of the Year, this is the first Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle available with Open Air Freedom — meaning the roof and doors are optional — and has a total driving range of 370 miles.
This type of vehicle is one that runs on both gas and electricity. This way, you get the option of extra range but you don’t have to worry about charging every night.
Even if you forget to charge your vehicle completely, it will still run on gas like any other vehicle.
This type of vehicle also qualifies you to a $7,500 federal tax credit as well as possible state and local incentives.
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe can get up to 60 mph in six seconds with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Yeah, it’s powerful.
Every 4xe is delivered with a Level I (120 V) charging system that plugs into any typical household outlet.
This level of battery will take up to twelve hours to charge your vehicle fully, but it is fine to only partially charge the battery. This SUV has special software that manages battery usage, and you can schedule charging to be only at night when electric utility charges are generally less expensive.
Another charging option would be to upgrade to the Level II battery. This can be installed by a licensed and vetted professional easily after consultation. The advantage of this battery would be the faster charging time — your Wrangler 4xe would be charged in just two hours with the Level II.
Easily find charging stations near you or use the one right at Eide Chrysler in Bismarck.
Hybrid mode: This is the default mode and combines torque from both the turbocharged engine and the electric motors. Hybrid mode allows for maximum horsepower, instant torque, and the best acceleration. Electric power is consumed first.
Electric mode: This is for when your battery is charged over 1% and you want to drive electric only. You’ll see almost no tailpipe emissions while being able to hit highway speeds for up to 21 miles on this mode.
Esave mode: This last mode uses your 2.0L engine first and saves the battery charge for later. When power demand is low, the engine shuts off. It can also be reconfigured to increase the battery charge as well.
“The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a giant leap forward for the Jeep line. Many of our Jeep customers have entertained the idea of an electric off-road vehicle but still want the performance of a gas engine. The Wrangler 4xe combines both features in a way that holds up to the demands our Jeep lovers need and demand," said New Car Manager Billy Ericksen.
Remember to custom order your next Jeep however you want at Eide Chrysler here in Bismarck and get ahead of the trends by switching to the one-of-a-kind 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe.
