While it wasn’t the first hybrid 4x4 vehicle on the market, the 2021 Wrangler 4xe (spelled four-by-e) promised actual off-road performance and high fuel efficiency.
Jeep continued the Wrangler saga, and, despite being offered a choice of diesel and gasoline engines, it managed to implement a plug-in hybrid system for the well-known off-road vehicle. The most challenging part was to keep its legendary off-road attributes while still being environmentally friendly. For that, it mounted a nickel-manganese-cobalt battery pack under the rear seats and protected them in a sturdy aluminum case.

At a glance, it was easy to spot a 4xe from the rest of the Wrangler range due to its charging port on the left side of the vehicle, at the bottom of the windshield. The Rubicon version featured blue tow-hooks both front and rear.

Inside, the car was very similar to the rest of the Wrangler range, but with a few different buttons for the plug-in hybrid system. Also, on top of the center stack, a special lamp with integrated blue LEDs showed the charging status without the need for a designated app.

The drivetrain was the most significant part of the car with its dual-motor system. Under the hood, a starter-generator helped the turbocharged inline-four gasoline engine. Jeep integrated the second electric motor into the eight-speed automatic transmission supplied by ZF. From there, the hybrid system sent the torque to the wheels via a usual Jeep 4x4 system. Like its siblings, the 4xe featured a front and solid rear axle.

The all-new Jeep Wrangler’s unique design includes an instantly recognizable keystone-shaped grille, iconic round headlamps and square tail lamps, improved aerodynamics, a convenient fold-down windshield for off-road purists, even more open-air freedom, and dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations.

The Wrangler Rubicon is the top trim level for the third generation of the Jeep Wrangler which is positioned on top of the range.
It can be found both on the 2-door and the 4-door versions. It features a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic and a Rock-Trac version of the NV241 traction system that has a 4:1 low range. Tru-loc functions refer to the electronic locking differential both on the front and the rear. The Rubicon model also offers more off-road capability thanks to increased ground clearance, larger wheels, improved axles, and transfer cases.

The JK generation of the Wrangler might be called the third generation of the rugged Jeep model, but it actually carried over the principle and the name of the WWII Willy’s, through the CJ (civilian Jeep) models.
In 2006, the Wrangler came, for the first time, with a four-door version.

The 2007 model was launched in 2006 after a deep and focused effort from DaimlerChrysler that asked the owners what do they want from the Wrangler range. It was a car built from scratch, but the designers kept in mind the basic design principles with rounded headlights and the body-on-frame construction.

The same seven-slats grille from the original Willys Jeep, which became an iconic look for the whole brand, was kept for the 2007 model. When compared to its predecessor, it featured a bigger bumper, to pass the safety tests all over the world. It had more rounded corners, but the overall appearance was tough.

Inside, for the two-door version there was room for four passengers, but with very limited room for those in the rear. Even if the dashboard was new, the windows control buttons were kept on the center console. Like all its predecessors, the 2007 Wrangler had a removable roof, doors, and foldable windshield. It’s a Jeep thing that the car-maker kept it. It was offered with a diesel unit and two V6 gasoline engines, with manual or automatic transmission. As an option, it was offered as 2WD.

Jeep made an essential upgrade on the Wrangler’s second generation, also known as TJ, in 1996 when it introduced it on the market as a 1997 model.
When Chrysler bought the AMC in 1987, it didn’t exactly know what to do with the Jeep Wrangler and left it with squared headlights, which Jeep fans disliked. Nine years later, the prominent American carmaker already knew what to change and made the TJ Wrangler a much better car. First of all, it ditched the leaf-springs and introduced the coil-springs and an improved suspension system, which allowed an increase in wheel-travel, essential while off-roading. Then, it made it cheaper to build in both LHD and RHD versions.

The 1997 Wrangler marked the return to round headlights. The seven-slat grille was similar to the one existing on its predecessor. Also, the carmaker kept the exterior latching system for the hood. Its windshield was pushed forward and shortened, thus decreasing the wind resistance and increasing the fuel efficiency.

Inside, Chrysler installed front bucket seats with integrated headrests for the front occupants, while in the rear, it kept the two-seat bench. Due to the short wheelbase, it wasn’t easy to keep someone on the back seats for longer distances. The Wrangler TJ kept the original advantages, such as the removable top and doors and the flat-folding windscreen.

The most important update was for the drivetrain, which carried over many parts from its bigger brother, the Grand Cherokee. Apart from the suspension system, it took the steering box and the inline-six, 4.0-liter engine. However, the base version was a 2.5-liter gasoline engine, which was good enough for in-town driving. All Wranglers came fitted with a 4x4 system and a shift-on-the-fly, two-speed transfer case.

Replacing the open-body veteran CJ, the new Wrangler was the most rugged Jeep with enhanced convenience inside.
The Wrangler shared the steering, the brakes, the axles, the manual transmission, the clutch and the transfer case with the Cherokee and the Wagoner.

Also called the YJ, the Wrangler was pretty similar in design with the CJ, however, it featured square headlights and had a lower center of gravity, and featured a heavy roller protection on the side, as well as behind the front seats, offering great stability and less body roll in turns.

Inside, the rudimentary controls and the painted steel dash were dropped, the Wrangler featuring a modern dashboard with 4 gauges as standard. The front seats were comfortable, however, they had short and narrow bottom cushions.

The rear cabin did not offer great legroom for the passengers, mostly because the right front seat was not adjustable. Entering the back seats was easy with the foldable front seats. The back seats also folded if more cargo room was needed.

With a choice of two engines, the Wrangler was available with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder unit or a 4.2-liter inline-6 powerplant, both mated with a standard 5-speed manual transmission.

The model was discontinued in 1996 when the Wrangler YJ was replaced by the Wrangler TJ.
