The all-new 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is something new on the roads. It is the most powerful version of the famous Wrangler SUV. On top of that, it is a hybrid variant, which is great.

Regular Wrangler 4xe will look the same as the standard Wrangler Sport gasoline model. The only difference is in the performances. If you want something sportier and more aggressive, then you should go for the Rubicon or Sahara models.
On the other hand, departure angles are exactly the same. Even the ground clearance of 10.8 inches in unchanged. Still, the Rubicon 4xe SUV can for up to 30 inches of water, which is more than other models. Jeep says this is a “Trail Rated” model. It is a company’s way of saying the “Trail Rated” models are capable of beating all sorts of challenging terrains. Lastly, Jeep will offer standard 20-inch wheels.
