What are your first impressions of the 4xe? Jeep dealers are supposed to be getting them this month and will be offering test drives. So if you didn't yet, let them know you are interested and make sure to share the experience with the rest of us here!

I just test drove a rubicon yesterday. It was great, I was worried that the 2.0T engine would feel sluggish a bit but it was nothing but a thrill. Only have experience riding in older wranglers, these ride and handle like a dream

Welcome to the forum @mcoluzzi! Are you looking to get a Rubicon or a different trim? Were you able to experience the fully electric mode?

Welcome to the forum!

What was the all-electric range like during the time you had it for?
Do you see yourself testing out a new ICE Wrangler as well to see how they compare?

If you ordered one, add it here:

The rubicon trim is what I am looking at. Yea, I called the dealership to made sure they could have the one they had on the lot fully charged. It was an awesome ride. Quick, quiet, and smooth. I currently have a Chevy Colorado so the wrangler is definitely a vehicle that packs in a little more fun.

To be honest, I didn't pay that close attention to what we got out of the range. I had a change to drive it for about 20 minutes, I would say that 5-7 minutes was in electric mode. I believe that we started with 22 miles on the electric range and ended with 18. Definitely seemed to last longer than it was estimating. It was all country roads going around 55-60 mph. I am waiting to hear back from the dealership on their best price and once its ordered ill add it to the tracker!

Also, I plead ignorance as to what an ICE Wrangler is?

Test drove both a 4xe Unlimited and ICE Sahara. The ICE felt great but pretty much as expected. The 4xe was quiet, zippy, and it just felt effortless; it instantly won me over. The max Regen mode takes some getting used to - I like the experience of basically one-pedal driving but my wife hates it.

My wife said same but quickly recognized the ease in negotiating slow traffic areas using the max regen function.
