What Are the Jeep 4xe Driving Modes?

2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Drive Modes

The Jeep lineup now features two plug-in electric hybrid (or PHEV) models, the Wrangler 4xe and the Grand Cherokee 4xe. While a conventional hybrid vehicle has a single driving mode that combines electric and gasoline power, a PHEV has three modes:

  • In Electric Mode, the Jeep 4xe runs on 100% battery power for low-emissions zones in cities. You can also use it to enjoy the quiet on your off-road treks!
  • Jeep 4xe Hybrid Mode works like a hybrid vehicle powertrain, combining the forces of a battery and a combustion engine. The Jeep 4xe MPG in Hybrid Mode is as high as 49 MPGe—impressive specs for a PHEV with Jeep capability!
  • When electric power runs out, Jeep 4xe eSave Mode kicks in—powering the vehicle with the combustion engine while reserving battery power for later use.

In short, that’s the kind of versatility that Joliet and Naperville drivers are sure to love about Jeep 4xe models! Ready to learn more? Our guide breaks down how far you can go in each of the 4xe driving modes.

Jeep 4xe Hybrid Mode

Not only can you maximize the Jeep 4xe MPG in Hybrid Mode, but you don’t need to worry about plugging in and charging your vehicle when electric power runs out. At that point, the vehicle automatically shifts over to eSave Mode. The Jeep 4xe Hybrid Mode is the default setting for 4xe models, and it provides a great balance of rapid acceleration, horsepower, instant torque, and efficiency.

So, how far can you go in Hybrid Mode? The Jeep 4xe MPG in Hybrid Mode reaches 49 miles per gallon/kilowatt.

Jeep 4xe Electric Mode

As long as the electric battery charge level is at 1% or above, the vehicle can run on 100% electric power. In other words, your travels through Yorkville will be nearly free of tailpipe emissions! Jeep 4xe models can drive for up to 21 miles in Electric Mode.

Jeep 4xe eSave Mode

In Jeep 4xe eSave Mode, the 2.0L engine provides most of the power. However, the engine will shut off automatically when power demand is low. Switching to eSave mode is a good idea if you’re trying to save power for a trip later in the day without stopping to plug in and charge. When driving the Jeep 4xe in eSave Mode, gas mileage is 20 MPG.

Jeep 4xe Regenerative Braking Technology

Regenerative Braking is an innovative feature that charges the 4xe electric battery when the vehicle is decelerating and braking. So, you can recoup a small amount of battery power without stopping for a charge! It also offers the benefit of slowing the vehicle without pressing the brake pedal. This feature stays selected unless you opt to turn it off.
