2021: Year of the Wrangler
The 2021 calendar year has been a momentous period for the Jeep Wrangler, starting early in the year with the introduction of the first electrified Jeep in North America, the Wrangler 4xe, and the first V-8-powered Wrangler in almost 40 years, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 (late availability). 

The Wrangler 4xe, with 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, delivers 4.8 Le/100 km combined (59 MPGe) and 35 kilometres (21 miles) of all-electric range, yet maintains all of Wrangler’s legendary off-road capability, including the ability to traverse 76 centimetres (30 inches) of water. In the second quarter of 2021, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe was amongst the top-three best-selling plug-in hybrids in Canada. And in its first year of eligibility, the innovative 4xe plug-in hybrid propulsion system in the Jeep Wrangler was voted a Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems winner.

For Jeep enthusiasts looking for legendary off-road performance and a new level of on-road performance, the Jeep brand introduced the V-8-powered 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392, the quickest and most powerful Wrangler yet. Rated at 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, the 6.4-litre Wrangler Rubicon 392 features a Selec-Trac full-time active transfer case and can accelerate from 0-96 km/h (60 mph) in just 4.5 seconds. Canadian market information on the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 will be shared at a later date.

At the 2021 Chicago Auto Show, the Jeep brand introduced the Xtreme Recon Package for Wrangler Rubicon 3.6L eTorque and Wrangler Rubicon 392. Offering 35-inch tires straight from the factory, as well as a 3.8 cm (1.5-in.) factory suspension lift, the Xtreme Recon Package elevates Wrangler’s off-road capability to best-in-class water fording and approach, break-over and departure angles. 

The Jeep brand also added eye-catching colours to the Wrangler lineup for 2021, including Gecko, a vivid and bright green, which joined the Jeep palette of 2021 model-year, special-run colours, including Chief Blue and Nacho.
