2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Powertrain
The Wrangler 4xe is a plug-in hybrid, meshing gas and electric power with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, two electric motors, and an EV battery pack recharged by an external power source. One of the electric motors is mounted to the front of the engine, where the alternator would normally be, generating energy to send back to maintain or increase the battery’s state of charge and providing a seamless engine stop-start function. The second electric motor is inside the transmission, replacing the standard torque converter. This provides the Gladiator with instant torque by sending electric power to the wheels for superior electric drivability. This combination of gas and electric power gives the 2023 Wrangler 4xe 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque while managing the gas equivalent of 49 miles per gallon. On a full tank and a full charge, the Wrangler 4xe achieves a 370-mile total driving range and 21 miles of all-electric driving.
Is the 2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Off-Road Capable?
Sure, the Wrangler 4xe uses electric power. However, it is still every bit a Wrangler as the gas models. Therefore, offers superior 4×4 capability with Selec-Trac 4×4 as standard equipment. Selec-Trac is a full-time 4×4 system that is constantly monitoring road conditions, speed, and traction. When a loss of traction is detected, the system will automatically send up to 100% of available engine torque to the axle that has the best traction. Dedicated only for the Wrangler Rubicon 4xe is the Rock-Trac 4×4 system. This offers a low-range gear ratio of 4:1. This means that as long as the transfer case is in 4-low mode, every four rotations of the transmission output shaft turn the axles one time. This provides the Rubicon trim with superior off-road traction by giving it high torque at low speeds to maintain optimal traction.
What Are the Trim Levels and Features of the 2023 Wrangler 4xe?
As we mentioned above, the Wrangler 4xe is still a Wrangler, so it still uses the removable doors, removable top, and fold-down windshield that make the Wrangler so unique. It also comes in the Wrangler’s Unlimited body style, so it comes with four doors. All-new for the 2023 model year is the Wrangler Willys 4xe. The military-inspired Willys trim’s exterior comes with LED lighting, a locking rear differential, FOX shock absorbers, 32-inch mud-terrain tires, and rock rails. You can pick the Willys trim out in a crowd by its military-style Willys decal on the sides of the hood. The Sahara adds 20-inch alloy wheels, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote proximity keyless entry, push-button ignition, navigation, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The legendary Rubicon trim provides spectacular off-road performance with FOX suspension components, high-clearance fender flares, hood vents, 33-inch all-terrain tires, and a disconnecting front sway bar. The High Altitude trim tops off the lineup with a higher level of luxury, featuring a full body-color appearance with a hard-top, unique alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, blindspot monitoring, quilted Nappa leather-trimmed upholstery, and side mirrors with integrated turn signals.
