2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Off-Roading Features

When you think of a dedicated off-road vehicle, Jeep should be the first thing which springs to mind. With unparalleled 4×4 capability, every model of Jeep is designed to be taken anywhere, even beyond where the road ends. So with the introduction of Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) Jeeps, such as the 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe, there’s the question of whether it had to sacrifice some of that rough terrain aptitude for EV efficiency. We here at Hinton Dodge Chrysler are pleased to say that’s not the case. If anything, the Wrangler 4xe excels at going off-road like few other vehicles on (or off) the road today.

Performative Powertrain

The heart of the 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV is the fuel-efficient 2.0L Turbo I4 engine, a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, and a 400V battery pack. The engine can output 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of instant torque to help get you over whatever terrain you find yourself faced with. Not only that, it’s also fuel efficient, offering an estimated combined economy of 4.8Le/100km. Thanks to E-Selec driving modes, you can instantly switch between the gas engine, battery, and hybrid modes depending on which part of the power-system you need for your current driving needs.

4×4 Systems

The 2024 Wrangler 4xe PHEV has several available 4×4 systems to help you better control the handling and performance of your Jeep. The Selec-Trac 4×4 system, standard on the Sahara and Willys trims, automatically switches between two- and four-wheel drive depending on the driving conditions. It’ll give you efficient 2WD on those smoother roads and highways, while flipping to 4WD when you need better traction on snow, ice, mud, or rocks. The heavier duty Rock-Trac 4×4 system, standard on the Rubicon, employs electronic locking differentials, brake lock differentials, and electronic front sway bar disconnect to help you crawl over challenging off-road terrain.

Trail Rated

The 2024 Wrangler 4xe PHEV carries the Trail Rated certification, which Jeep only hands out to vehicles which perform in five grueling categories; traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water folding. They’re tested across steep roads and slick surfaces. They’re tested for optimized ground clearance and approach angles. They’re tested on tight trails and winding narrow roads. They’re tested on rough, uneven terrain. And they’re tested crossing deep puddles and overflowing streams. If they fail to perform in even one of these categories, they don’t earn that Trail Rated certification.
