The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe Is Now The Cheapest Way To Get An Electrified Jeep
The Jeep Wrangler 4xE got a little bit cheaper for those interested in a PHEV Jeep.
Jeep’s reaching back into the archives for this name; the Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe is the latest trim for the Jeep Wrangler lineup. Also, it’s the cheapest way to get a Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) Jeep Wrangler.
Starting at $55,590 (including a $1,595 destination fee), the Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xE sits at the bottom of the lineup, slotting below the Sahara 4xe trim. At the top of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe lineup is the Rubicon 4xe, then the High Altitude 4xe.
All Jeep Wrangler 4xe’s are powered by the same 2.0 liter turbocharged “hurricane” four-cylinder, engine, with an electric assist on the rear axle. The electric assist is fed by a 17.3-kilowatt-hour battery, good for a range of 21 miles. This combination has propelled the Jeep Wrangler 4xe to become the best-selling PHEV in the United States. Despite being the cheapest Wrangler 4xe variant, the Willys still comes with goodies like Dana 44 axles, an Alpine 9-speaker stereo, and a 10.1-inch lift.
This was announced during the same time as the new fully electric Jeep Recon, Jeep Wagoneer S, and Europe-only Jeep Avenger. The Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe is the cheapest way to get an electrified Jeep, that is, until the new models make their way to showrooms.
The Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe will start production in late 2022 in Toledo, Ohio, reaching dealerships by early 2023.
