Jeep Will Have the PHEV Lineup Other Brands Can Only Dream Of

February 19th, 2021 by

CEO Kendall Dodge

Jeep is back cooking in its proverbial kitchen. The premier off-road automotive brand is working on creating its 4xe platform/trim to become an option across its entire lineup. The Jeep brand first introduced the 4xe trim as an option for the famed 2021 Jeep Wrangler. Now, Jeep is planning on ensuring its success so that the Jeep Gladiator, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and other Jeep models gain the same impressive plug-in hybrid capabilities. This decade is set to be a year of fantastic success for the brand with its luxurious all-new Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer three-row SUVs hitting the scene in 2022, but this would be the next biggest news for the brand in 2021. 

The World Needs More 4xe Jeep Products

Creating more vehicles with this new beloved trim that works to save owners money and protect the environment is a smart move. The next-generation Cherokee is going to be the first vehicle after the Wrangler to see the addition. In fact, the top of the Jeep brand, Christian Meunier had this to say about where the company sees its vehicles going forward. He revealed the Grand Cherokee is dropping its diesel trim in Australia and adding the 4xe plug-in hybrid trim instead. Jeep has released a statement that comes from Menuier and reveals the focus Jeep has to become the greenest SUV company in the world.

“Christian Meunier, the Global President of Jeep Brand, has said we are committed to making Jeep the greenest SUV brand. All Jeep models will carry an electrified option in the next few years and will modernize the brand as it strives to become the leader in green, eco-friendly premium technology.”

More On the 4xe Powertrain

The Wrangler 4xe trim is going to pack its eTorque electric motor with a standard alternator paired to its 2.0-Liter turbo four-cylinder engine. The battery provides a 400 volt, 17 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This is the same engine we expect to see go into other Jeep vehicles that will carry the 4xe trim. However, the Jeep Gladiator, which is confirmed to receive a 4xe trim, might gain a larger engine to power its larger mid-size pickup size. There’s no 4xe trim that is currently available, but we will see them roll off of the production line before long. Searching for the right Jeep vehicle?
