The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the fastest, most powerful Wrangler ever produced
The Jeep Wrangler is legendary for its rugged design and impressive capability on the unbeaten path. And that’s mostly why the idea of an electrified Wrangler seemed ridiculous until recently. But Jeep is slowly electrifying its lineup and, somewhat surprisingly, it picked the Wrangler as the first nameplate to benefit from a full-fledged hybrid setup. And the result is the fastest and most powerful Wrangler developed so far!
Jeep added a new version to its Wrangler lineup: called Wrangler 4xe - the new model has been described as the most capable, technically advanced and eco-friendly Wrangler ever. The car is also the third hybrid car in Jeep’s lineup next to the Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe models.
Jeep’s First EV Will Subcompact SUV That Is Smaller Than the Renegade
Jeep recently unveiled its first hybrid vehicles based on the Compass and Renegade SUVs, but the FCA-owned brand is also working on an all-electric hauler. Recent intel claims that the upcoming crossover will be even smaller than the Renegade and that it will benefit from technology by PSA, following the recently announced merger between FCA and the French group that owns Peugeot, Citroen, and Opel.
Jeep’s Design Boss Just Made a Bold Statement About a Wrangler EV - Do You Agree?
Electric vehicles are taking over the automotive market and there’s not much we can do about it. It started with hatches and sedans, but the transition is trickling down to hardcore off-roaders as well. We’ve already heard the news about an electric Jeep Wrangler.
So far, all we knew was that FCA is considering one and it will come down the line. It was bound to happen anyway. Now, however, Jeep’s design chief has ascertained that it will be better than the current ICE-powered Wrangler. Does this mean that the current Wrangler has reached its saturation point and there’s no scope for further improvement until an electric powertrain is plonked in?
2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20
It won’t be wrong to say that the Jeep Wrangler is a cult of sorts when it comes to customizing a vehicle. The Wrangler is one of the most customizable vehicles not just with aftermarket accessories, but also thanks to the rich directory of the in-house guide, Mopar.
The Wrangler comes with so many optional accessories and packages that it might leave you scratching your head. To help you with this conundrum, Jeep decided to customize the Wrangler in-house with accessories and call it the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20. It was showcased at the Chicago Auto Show and it did grab a fair bit of attention. Looks pretty sweet, doesn’t it?
2020 Jeep Renegade - Driven
The Jeep Renegade entered the market back in 2014 as a 2015 model and, despite the fact that it was expected to replace the Jeep Compass, the two models share a home in Jeep’s Lineup. The Renegade has changed a little bit with each model year, but the first official facelift didn’t happen until 2019 when a handful of subtle tweaks offered up a marginally fresh look. Curious to see how the updated Jeep Renegade compares to the launch model that we drove back in 2015, we asked FCA for a new loaner, and this is our thoughts after a week-long experience with the 2020 Jeep Renegade.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk Military Edition by Chelsea Truck Company
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most mod-friendly off-roaders one can buy today. The company itself offers hundreds of accessories and packages through Mopar, but that doesn’t limit other aftermarket companies to work on the Wrangler.
One such company is the U.K.-based Chelsea Truck Company. The company currently works on the Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender, and the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. It makes many iterations of the Wrangler and the Defender, but in this piece, we’ll be looking at the Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk Military Edition.
Jeep created a furore when it launched the 2020 Gladiator. People love Jeep and it was a great moment for the enthusiasts to see a Jeep-branded truck return after almost three decades. Even though the concept truck was launched in 2005, it took the company almost 15 years to finally come up with the final production version, but it was worth the wait. In fact, Jeep wanted to capitalize on this hype and decided to bring five Gladiator based concepts to the 2019 Easter Jeep Safari; even if that meant taking that Wrangler off the grid this year. Even though the 2020 Gladiator is underpinned by the Wrangler’s platform, it is much more than just ’a Wrangler with a bed’. Jeep has launched the 2020 Gladiator is four different trims: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon. There was a Launch Edition limited to 4,190 units as well, but for now, we’re going to focus on the standard trim levels and what boxes you should check when you’re filling out your order form.

When Jeep revealed the Gladiator, the Wrangler-based pickup model it added to its range last year, many in the automotive scene were overjoyed. They raved about how good this new midsize truck is going to be, how long it’s been since Jeep had a pickup in its range, and the genuine need for such a vehicle that blends the Wrangler’s unmatched off-road capability with extra utility and carrying capacity.
2019 Jeep Renegade Hybrid
The Jeep Renegade Hybrid is the electrified version of the company’s smallest SUV to date. It’s also the company’s first hybrid vehicle alongside the Compass Hybrid. Launched in 2019, it’s identical to the familiar Renegade save for the fact that its gasoline four-cylinder engine works in conjunction with an electric motor. The Renegade Hybrid joins a tight subcompact SUV market that includes plug-in hybrids like the Kia Niro and the Toyota C-HR. But even though it’s a bit late to the party, it comes with superior power, torque, and class-leading off-road capability. Rated at up to 240 horsepower, its hybrid drivetrain is far superior to what Kia and Toyota have to offer as of 2019. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

2019 Jeep Compass Hybrid
The Compass has been in Jeep’s stable for around 13 years now. It was unveiled as a concept at the 2002 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Although revealed as a two-door concept, the Compass was ultimately launched as a four-door crossover four years after it made its world premiere in Detroit. Five years into production, Jeep decided to give the Compass a face that resonated with the Grand Cherokee. Soon, the Compass started receiving its own identity as with many off-road features and packages available. In 2017, the second-generation of the Compass was launched, and it replaced its predecessor, as well as the Jeep Patriot. It will not be the worst thing to say that even though it could not garner big numbers for the automaker from 2007 to 2017, there was consistent growth in the sales figures. However, 2018 turned out to be the breakthrough year for the Jeep Compass. Jeep sold 171,167 examples of the Compass in 2018, an increase of 87,914 from 83,253 copies it sold in 2017. That’s more than 100-percent growth! Carrying over its rich form from last year, the Compass came to Switzerland with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The Compass did not come alone; the Renegade accompanied it with the same mill under its hood. It’s like two brothers wearing the same clothes to go to a party. That’s cute.
