The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is scheduled to arrive in North America early this year and in global markets later in 2022.

The new Jeep Wrangler 4xe delivers 21 miles of nearly silent, zero-emission, electric-only propulsion and is EPA rated at 49 MPGe, making it commuter friendly as an all-electric daily driver without range anxiety. The hybrid powertrain combines a high-tech, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, turbocharged engine with two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack and the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Benchmark 470 lb.-ft. of torque in the Wrangler 4xe arrives instantly on demand from the driver. The powertrain also delivers fuel-saving, seamless, start-stop operation of the engine.
