Jeep will Discontinue Wrangler Four-Cylinder Hybrid
A recent report says Jeep is phasing out the 2021 four-cylinder hybrid Wrangler
The eTorque mild hybrid system helps the vehicle accelerate smoothly and improve fuel economy. Used in the 2018JL Wrangler model, it works with a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine with 270 HP and 295 LB-FT torque to increase the vehicle’s torque burst.
Considering the upcoming new Wrangler Sahara, Jeep is not surprised to see the 2021 four-cylinder hybrid Wrangler Sahara cease production
The Mopar Insiders network was the first to broadcast this message through the Dealer Relationships.
According to an online publication, starting next year, the Wrangler will not be equipped with a four-cylinder hybrid powertrain. The eTorque mild hybrid system will be fitted with a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6, and the four-cylinder engine will only be available as a non-hybrid.
The demise of the 2021 wrangler four-cylinder hybrid doesn’t mean Jeep isn’t rolling out more electric vehicles. In the future, a plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) “4XE” will be sold, and models will include wrangler, Beidou and Renegade.
Jeep is still working on more hybrid or all-electric versions, and even speculates that an electric version of the Gladiator PHEV might be on the way.
But Jeep’s sales plan faces a turnaround with the introduction of the powerful Ford Bronco.
