Jeep concepts are known for causing a big response. We’ve seen the results of a beloved idea turned into a full-fledged concept into a profitable production vehicle. Look no further than the Jeep Gladiator mid-size pickup, which has won awards and shown results in its segment. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator pickup is quite the star today, but not long ago it was a prototype. For the biggest Jeep event of each year, the annual Easter Jeep Safari, spectators gain access to the newest Jeep vehicles and most uniquely modified Jeep vehicles from around the world. This year, we already learned the Moab Easter Jeep Safari event is back on in 2021 after the pandemic ended a streak of over half a century. 

What Will Jeepers See In Moab?

Those loyal Jeep enthusiasts that will make the trek to Moab, Utah will get a chance to see all the future awaiting owners in the gorgeous Jeep lineup. Rumors swirl about Jeep getting ready to debut its new Wrangler BEV (Battery electric vehicle), although we are sure to see the upcoming 2021 Wrangler PHEV first, as known as the 4xe trim. 

“Very early in design, the decision was made to maintain all capability and drive dynamics when converting to the electrified powertrain. The Wrangler 4xe has the same towing capacity of 3,500 pounds and payload capacity of 1,280 pounds as its non-hybrid brethren. The four-cylinder turbocharged engine is powerful on its own and serves as one of the available powertrains for the Jeep Wrangler,”  said Scott Tallon, head of Jeep Product Marketing. 

Excited Builds Over New 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in gasoline-electric hybrid will make its debut. The expectation for the starting price will be around the $48,240 MSRP (Plus destination fee) for the new 2021 Wrangler Unlimited 4xe trim. The path for the Jeep brand and owners will be a new plug-in vehicle that offers impressive strength (375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque) from its turbocharged hybrid engine. The estimated MPGe for this vehicle stretches to 50 miles on battery alone with its total capabilities reaching 400 miles as its driving range; truly inspiring and attractive for all drivers. 

One thing that might take some Jeepers time to get used to is how especially quiet the drives will be thanks to its electric power. A smooth and strong Wrangler has been around for years, but not as silent as the 2021 Wrangler 4xe is. This is just one of the many future 4xe trims coming from Jeep in the near future with its growing PHEV lineup. Affordable electric vehicles are on their way and the first place to drive them will be at Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram!
