After the Wrangler 4xe PHEV model’s announcement, the rumors about the 2022 Jeep Gladiator 4xe plug-in hybrid’s are not settling down. According to the latest media reports, the upcoming pickup truck design will most likely remain the same with some small upgrades, indicating the PHEV model.
Besides both models above, FCA has a five-year plan to make every car in its lineup more efficient. That means we can expect in near future more electric, hybrid, and PHEV versions. Basically, the first one, Wrangler 4xe, will be on the front line of FCA’s electrification in North America. However, the Jeep Compass 4xe and Jeep Renegade 4xe PHEVs are leading Jeep’s in Europe.
2022 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-In Hybrid Rumors
Right now, we don’t know anything about the 2022 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-In Hybrid exterior styling. Many believe that the PHEV model could be the same as the regular one. However, in our opinion, the forthcoming pickup truck will get some modifications that will separate it from the regular one.
Some unverified news is circulating that Gladiator 4xe Plug-In Hybrid will probably gain a more attractive grille with the badge that indicates the PHEV model. We can also expect some small revisions on the back and probably better graphics. However, one thing is sure, the size of this model will remain the same as on the regular one.
More Comfort and Technology
Inside, the new 2022 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-In Hybrid will probably keep the same attractive layout as the regular model. Of course, we can expect much more premium materials and comfort. Like its conventional counterpart, the Wrangler 4xe, the Gladiator will feature many new technologies.
Generally, we should expect the same infotainment system and many standard features. The Wrangler offers heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, a nine-speaker Alpine® premium audio system, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and, most importantly, a long list of safety features. The list includes blind spot monitoring, forward collusion warning, adaptive cruise control, and much more.
2022 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-In Hybrid System
Like the Wrangler 4xe model, the new 2022 Jeep Gladiator 4XE will probably be powered with the same system. The current Jeep Wrangler 4xe’s hybrid drivetrain combines a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, two electric motors, one in the front and one on the rear. This combination delivers 375 horsepower and wooing 470 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 rpm.
Beneath the 2nd-row seat, the manufacturer placed a 400-volt, 17-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Also, Wrangler uses an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, and Selectable drive choices are 2-wheel-drive, 4-wheel-drive (4WD) high, 4WD low, and 4WD Auto. Thanks to this combination, the new Wrangler 4xe can offer up to 31 miles of electric-only driving, which is quite excellent.
Release Date and Price
The new 2022 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Plug-In Hybrid is coming silently. From the latest news, the forthcoming pickup truck will arrive at some point next year. If you didn’t know, the manufacturer recently introduced Wrangler SUV with the same system.
As for the pricing, the manufacturer is still silent about it. Nevertheless, Jeep Compass 4XE and Jeep Renegade 4xe PHEVs are coming to Europe, and we can expect a huge sales splash.
