It is the 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe can be described as the mainstay of Jeep’s Jeep brand. Over the past eight decades, the iconic four-wheel drive (4WD) small utility car has grown from an MB 1/4 ton-rated U.S. Army replacement for the horse during World War II (WWII) to becoming the most well-known SUV available in the market today.
2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Redesign
With 18 models in its diverse range with 18 variants, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler could be its automaker. The Wrangler selection is vast and expensive, with the priciest model costing more than three times more than the least expensive one. In 2024, the model year The Wrangler is getting a mid-cycle update with new technology, enhanced capabilities, and a broader range of models.
In 2024, there will be four powertrains available that will be available on Wrangler. Jeep has canceled its EcoDiesel model. The new powertrain lineup features:
- 3.6-liter V6 that produces 285 horsepower, and 260 pounds-feet of torque. It is mated to a manual 6-speed or an 8-speed auto transmission.
- 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that has 295 lb-ft of torque, coupled to an automatic transmission with 8 speeds.
- 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with 470 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet of torque, coupled to an automatic transmission with 8 speeds.
The plug-in hybrid (PHEV) features the 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine that has an eTorque belt-start motor and the integrated motor for transmission and traction, producing the system with 375 horsepower, and 447 pounds-feet maximum combined torque, coupled to an eight-speed auto transmission. The 2024 line-up includes five 2-door models as well as seven models with four doors. Six of the models with four doors come with a PHEV drivetrain. The two new versions for the model year 2024 include the highly-equipped Rubicon X (available with two doors or four doors ) the hybrid engine is either gas or 4xe) as well as the basic Sport S 4xe.
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe 2024 has a 375-horsepower plug-in hybrid engine that is paired with an eight-speed auto transmission and a 4-wheel drive. We tested the hybrid powertrain in the desert roads of southern Utah and were amazed by the speedy acceleration boosted by electric motors. It’s more enjoyable to drive than the standard 4-cylinder and V6 models that come with the Wrangler.
The 2024 updates will make the Wrangler 4xe a more comfortable and road-friendly vehicle. The Wrangler is typically less refined than other automobile-like SUVs, such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee sibling. The improvements in audio-deadening glass, acoustic windows, and a stealth antenna that is integrated into the windshield aid with airflow, traffic noise, and overall ease of use.
With a solid foundation and a strong drive, the 4xe is a beast with the same intensity and confidence as the rest of the Wrangler. It is a mistake when you think that your off-road adventures will be ruined by the Wrangler 4xe’s dual-motor PHEV powertrain. We are never disappointed, but we’re never shocked by the off-road capabilities of the Wrangler. After having driven the Rubicon 4xe across difficult terrains in southern Utah We can confirm that the Wrangler isn’t slack in its PHEV form.
Range, Efficiency, and Charging
The Wrangler 4xe comes with an all-electric capacity of up to 21 miles. If the battery is exhausted, it has an average fuel efficiency rating of 20 milliliters per gallon. It’s the same score as the standard 4-door Wrangler, which has a turbo four-cylinder engine. Despite its low efficiency and an exhausted battery, however, the Wrangler 4xe is still the lowest fuel cost of any Wrangler. As per EPA estimates the 4xe will have a monthly cost of fuel of $170, as opposed to $125 with the turbo-4.
The new interior design for the Wrangler 4xe for 2024 marks an important step towards modern design and technological advancement. We believe that Jeep did a great job in modernizing the interior of the Wrangler without sacrificing the character of the vehicle. A new, low-profile center console is equipped with Jeep’s top-of-the-line Uconnect 5 infotainment and entertainment system. It has an illuminated 12.3-inch touchscreen that is easy to see during top-down driving. We were amazed at how much glare it absorbed with the top of the screen open. The standard wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are available, too. Additionally, you can get 12-way adjustable front seats that have been tested to test water fording. Yes, the seats function perfectly in the event of submersion, which could be the case due to the Wrangler’s 34 inches of water-fording capabilities.
For interior space In terms of interior space, the Wrangler is spacious because of its boxy design. Each 4xe model is a four-door model and we were awestruck by the back legroom. The Wrangler 4xe offers 38.2 inches of back legroom. This is nearly identical to the non-hybrid 4-door Wrangler and is more spacious than the 4-door Ford Bronco. The Jeep is equipped with 27.7 cubic feet of storage area behind the rear seats which is increased by 67.4 cubic feet when folding the seats in the rear. Because hybrid components take up space, this is slightly less than the conventional (31.7/72.4) but it’s plenty of room.
The exterior style of the Wrangler is always more progressive than other models. This is the same for 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe. Two significant exterior changes include the new 7-slot grille which provides larger slots to allow for better airflow, and the incorporation of the antenna in the frame of the windshield.
The 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is powered an engine that is turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is connected to two electric motors. The output of the engine is a hefty 350 horsepower and 470 pounds of torque. It’s coupled with an 8-speed auto transmission as well as a four-wheel drive. When the hybrid battery is out the gas engine itself can produce 295 lb-ft torque, that’s sufficient. Jeep says that the charging of its Wrangler 4xe can take around 12 hours using a standard home power outlet. The upgrade to a Level 2 charger cuts it down to approximately two hours.
As is the norm among major automakers in the US, the standard warranty is three years, or 36,000 miles depending on what is first. Jeep provides powertrain coverage up to five years, or for 60,000 miles which is what is the standard for industry. The battery of the plug-in hybrid is protected for eight years or 100,000 miles. In addition, Jeep throws in three years of free scheduled maintenance.
The updated 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is equipped with extra safety features standard to 2024, such as side-curtain airbags for the rear and structural upgrades to improve side-impact performance, as well as the pretensions for rear seats. Safety tech standard options include forward collision detection advanced cruise control as well as a backup cam. Other safety features available include blind-spot monitoring as well as rear parking sensors.
