FCA has started assembling the new Jeep Wrangler 4xe at its Toledo North factory in Ohio alongside the existing Wrangler variants.

The plug-in hybrid SUV is being built on two shifts by more than 3,200 employees represented by the UAW and is set to arrive at dealers nationwide early next year.

The 2021 Wrangler 4xe uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and two electric motors, for a total output of 375 horsepower (380 PS / 280 kW) and 470 pound-feet (637 Nm) of torque. Mounted beneath the back seats, the 17 kWh lithium-ion battery provides an all-electric range of up to 25 miles (40 km) in the dedicated driving mode that joins the Hybrid and eSave, with a total autonomy of 400 miles (644 km) estimated by the automaker.

Jeep will offered the electrified Wrangler in three trim levels in the United States, the 4xe, Sahara 4xe and Rubicon 4xe, with 10 exterior colors and blue accents, as well as a more special look for the top-of-the-line model. The latter will also get electric front- and rear-axle lockers, electronic sway-bar disconnect and the Rock-Trac system, while the first two grades will arrive with a two-speed transfer case, Dana solid ales and an optional limited-slip differential. The four-wheel drive system will be standard across the range.

Once it goes on sale, customers will be able to order several official accessories that will further enhance its off-road capability, including special bumpers, trail lights and 2-inch (51 mm) lift kit.

Pricing will be announced in due course.
