The first plug-in hybrid vehicle in Jeep’s U.S. lineup finally has a price tag. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe will start at nearly $50,000. Deliveries of the Launch Editions of the model are scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2021.
Jeep will launch two models of the electrified Wrangler first, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4xe Launch Edition and the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe Launch Edition.
Both Jeeps offer driver’s access to 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. The automaker says that the SUVs get from zero to 60 mph in six seconds. This is all while achieving an estimated 50 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe).

Under the hood of each model is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that are paired with a 17 kilowatt hour battery made of lithium-ion, nickel manganese cobalt. This combination offers three different types of power options: gasoline-only, hybrid, and electric-only.
