  • Jeep has increased the plug-in-hybrid Wrangler 4xe‘s starting price by $3,030.
  • The 2021 Wrangler 4xe Sahara starts at $52,520, the Rubicon at $56,220, and the High Altitude at $58,340.
  • Power comes from a turbocharged inline-four paired with two electric motors and a roughly 14.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, and the EPA estimates 49 MPGe.

    Jeep’s first plug-in hybrid, the Wrangler 4xe, went on sale earlier this year with a starting price of $49,490. Now Jeep has increased the electrified Wrangler‘s price by $3,030, as it claims it’s the best-selling plug-in-hybrid in the U.S. This price increase now makes it an $11,705 premium over a V-6 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.

    The Wrangler 4xe is available in three models: Sahara, Sahara High Altitude, and Rubicon. The now $52,520 starting price is for the Wrangler 4xe Sahara, which comes with 20-inch black painted wheels on all-season tires and leather seats. The Sahara High Altitude, which has body-colored exterior accents, costs $58,340, and the Rubicon (pictured), which has 33-inch all-terrain tires starts at $56,220.

    All Wrangler 4xe models use a 270-hp turbocharged inline-four paired with two electric motors drawing power from a roughly 14.0-kWh lithium-ion battery. Together, they make 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. The EPA estimates the Wrangler 4xe at 49 MPGe, and it has an electric-only mode that provides up to 21 miles of driving range.

    Jeep declined to comment on why it increased the Wrangler 4xe’s price, but it boasted that it’s the best-selling plug-in hybrid right now. It sold 69,020 Wranglers during the first half of this year, and while it won’t disclose how many of those are the plug-in-hybrid 4xe, Toyota moved 18,862 Prius Primes through June. There are other 4xe models on the way, Jeep says, including the new Grand Cherokee.
