When your eye catches a Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe for sale, you can’t help but do a double take. The same goes for the Wrangler 4xe, for that matter. While both models have the classic good looks that Jeep is known for, there is something a little sleeker about them that sets them apart from the rest of the Jeep family.
The Jeep 4xe models show the evolution of the iconic brand. Jeep is jumping from gas to hybrid power, so you can go further with less carbon emission than before. Are you worried about giving up power or performance for green energy? You know Jeep, so put that idea out of your head. Drivers know that when it comes to the mighty Wrangler or Grand Cherokee, there are no compromises, only power and performance, and the 4xe family of Jeep hybrids has it all and more ready to go.
Jeep plug-in PHEV vehicles offer the familiar feeling of a gas engine with the freedom of an electric plug-in, which means more adventure and less stopping to refuel. The blend of electricity and gas gives the 4xe family seamless power without the stress of wondering where you are going to refuel or where you are going to charge up. Switch between gas and full EV mode to experience the mean, clean energy that Jeep has put under the hood of their 4xe models.
Are you looking to make your ride a little more green? Then Jeep is here to help. Check out the Grand Cherokee 4xe for a powerful family hauler/adventure wagon, or go for the iconic Wrangler 4xe and kiss the pavement goodbye. There is no wrong way to go green when you are a Jeep.
The Grand Cherokee 4xe
The Grand Cherokee 4xe Jeep was designed with drivers and the planet in mind. The PHEV is a seamless blend of motor and battery that gives you the peace of mind you want when deciding to switch from gas to plug-in. The winning combination of the two takes drivers further without compromising on power. When you have a full tank of gas and a full battery, expect a driving range of up to 470 miles! Or go all-electric and travel up to 25 miles. The 375 horsepower paired with 470lb-ft of torque promises a rewarding and rugged ride. While the 4xe’s max towing ability of up to 6,000lbs means nothing gets left behind.
The Grand Cherokee’s PHEV system is class-exclusive. Drivers will notice right away that the system is silent. You get the same amount of performance without the sound of a gas engine, making the driving experience smooth and sleek.
The Grand Cherokee 4xe features three different drive modes to match your daily drive. Hybrid mode combines the 2.0L turbocharged engine with the electric motor for a thrilling and eco-friendly drive. This mode gives your maximum horsepower, torque, and responsive acceleration.
When you switch to EV or electric mode, your drive goes silent. Your drive gets even greener with next to zero tailpipe emissions. Even in electric mode, expect to unleash the 4xe’s powerful torque and acceleration without hesitation.
Last but not least there is eSave mode. This mode does just what it says, relies on your engine, and lets you save your battery’s charge for when you need it.
The Wrangler 4xe
The Wrangler is the other model in Jeep’s hybrid lineup, and it is equally impressive. The model sports all the classic good looks of the best-selling Wrangler but is equipped with green technology for drivers who want to explore the planet while doing their part to help keep it clean. The PHEV Wrangler means less carbon emissions and more fun. Who doesn’t love that?
The Wrangler 4xe has a max driving range of up to 370 miles! The Wrangler 4xe also sports the same driving mode options as the Grand Cherokee, allowing drivers to switch between Electric mode for low-emissions driving, Hybrid mode to enjoy the balance of both gas and electric or eSave mode, which lets your engine take over and save your battery’s power for another adventure.
The Wrangler 4xe also boasts Regenerative Braking, which means that each time you brake or slow down, the customarily lost energy will be transferred back to your battery for charging.
The Wrangler 4xe hybrid is available for several different Wrangler models, including the best-selling Willys and the tough Rubicon, so you can make your ride green no matter your model preference.
Charging Up Your Jeep
One reason why people may hesitate to make the switch from gas to electric is because charging sounds like it might be a pain. That is where the beauty of a PHEV comes in! When you get into a plug-in hybrid, you can experience what it is like to charge a vehicle rather than fill up constantly. But you still have the engine to fall back in when you want it. This can help make the transition from gas to electricity easier.
Most EV and PHEV drivers will tell you that charging up your Jeep is as quick and easy as charging a phone or laptop. The Grand Cherokee and Wrangler 4xe models offer two different charging levels so you can plug in and boost your battery whenever and wherever.
Level 1 is the slowest charge and can be done using a basic 120-volt wall outlet. It can take around 12 hours to charge your battery on this level fully.
While Level 1 is perfectly fine, Jeep wants to make charging more accessible and faster and now offers an available Level 2 at-home charging station. Level 2 powers up your vehicle using 240 volts. Level 2 can charge up your battery in as little as a few hours.
Jeep has made it easier and faster not just at-home charging but also on the road. Jeep knows its drivers are nature lovers, so keep your eye out for Jeep’s solar-powered charge stations that are cropping up near many off-road trails across the country.
