The Jeep Wrangler is getting a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year and the Wrangler 4xe will receive some minor updates. The most notable of them is the addition of the Sport S 4xe trim, which will bring a lower entry price point to the best-selling plug-in hybrid in America. Unfortunately, pricing information for the 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe wasn’t announced, but we do know the PHEV’s lineup will look like this:
- Sport S 4xe
- Willys 4xe
- Sahara 4xe
- High Altitude 4xe
- Rubicon 4xe
Those who opt for the range-topping Rubicon 4xe will get a new Full Float Dana 44 heavy-duty solid rear axle, allowing for tire upsizing and up to maximum 5,000 lbs towing. Jeep also announced that the Willys model will get larger tires, more ground clearance, high fender flares, and improved traction.
Under the hood, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe remains unchanged from the current offering. It’ll still have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The gasoline engine is combined with two electric motors for a total powertrain output of 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The 21-mile all-electric range carries over, as does the 49 MPGe. Battery specs are also the same, with a 400-volt, 17-kWh battery pack.
What is new however, is the Wrangler 4xe will offer the Jeep 4xe Power Box. The Power Box features four 120-volt outlets with 30 amps of total output, allowing owners to use their battery pack to power external devices like phones and tablets. Inside, the interior has been refined with an all-new instrument panel featuring Uconnect 5 system with a 12.3″ touchscreen display. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.
While there aren’t any significant changes heading to the 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the American automaker remains committed to electrify its entire lineup by the end of 2025. The automaker is also aiming for half of its U.S. sales to be fully electric by 2030. The order books are now open for the 2024 Wrangler, and it is set to arrive dealerships in the U.S. later this year.
“The Jeep Wrangler is the archetypal adventure hero, embodying the spirit and the soul of the Jeep brand,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep brand CEO. “Since its introduction, we have sold almost 5 million Wranglers around the world, setting new levels of 4×4 capability with each new generation. Today, we are raising the bar once again by combining the most capable Wrangler to date, with more technology, comfort and safety features. This is a no-compromise combination enhanced by the freedom to choose from four different powertrains, including our electrified 4xe, which is the best-selling PHEV in America.”
