Jeep Sets Date For Plug In Hybrid Wrangler
Jeep and hybrid fans alike will be holding on to their hats with the latest news of Fiat-Crysler announcing a plug-in hybrid variant of their beloved Jeep Wrangler in 2020.
Exact details are yet to surface on the new model as the first of its kind won’t hit the street for another 2 years. What we do know is that current speculation suggests the new Jeep will be based on the already available Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
Those with range anxiety can rest easy because the current Pacifica model offers a total range of 528 miles and can go 33 miles straight on a single electric charge. With consumers looking for affordability, style, and functionality, this SUV might be just what the Jeep fan ordered.
Many other details are left to the imagination about the forthcoming SUV at this point, however. Will the all-new 2020 Jeep plug-in hybrid Wrangler be all terrain? Jeep does have other sport utility vehicles that are offered in a two-wheel drive format so there is a real possibility the classic Wrangler will retain four-wheel drive capabilities in its newly incarnated hybrid variant.
What will the die-hard Jeep fan’s reception be? It may be a little too soon to tell. The one thing that remains certain is that hybrid and electric technology in vehicles is not just a fad anymore. In fact, many would argue that hybrids are absolutely the only way to drive towards the future.
