now that we’re getting closer to when the 2021 jeep wrangler 4xe is set to reach dealers—the first quarter of next year—jeep has released the pricing for the first wrangler plug-in hybrid. offered in a sahara trim level, the wrangler 4xe launch edition will start at $49,490 and is priced at $53,190 for the rubicon trim level. at the 4xe's launch, only those two trim levels will be available.
those prices for the rubicon and sahara 4xe put the plug-in hybrid at a nearly $10,000 premium compared with gasoline-only models of the wrangler. in those higher trims, the 4xe launch edition will come with an 8.4-inch infotainment screen, an upgraded nine-speaker alpine audio system, and leather bucket seats on the sahara.
the 4xe currently has just one powertrain, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a 17.0-kwh battery. the two can put out 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque routed through an eight-speed automatic transmission. the battery pack in the 4xe is good for up to 25 miles of electric-only range.
the 4xe comes ready to go off-road with a two-speed transfer case that enables full-time four-wheel drive, solid dana 44 axles, 10.8 inches of clearance, and the ability to ford up to 30 inches of water. it is estimated to return 50 mpge and hit 60 mph in around six seconds, according to jeep.
