Wrangler 4xe V. RAV4 Prime - Powertrain and Performance

Both the 4xe and the RAV4 Prime merge their gas engine with two electric motors. Yet while the RAV4 Prime generates 302 horsepower, the Wrangler 4xe can make as much as 375. The Jeep uses an eight-speed automatic transmission and has plenty of four-wheel drive systems available. The RAV4 Prime produces 302 horsepower.

True to its off-road nature, the Wrangler 4xe offers a significant performance boost as compared to the RAV4 Prime. The 3500-pound towing capacity of the Wrangler 4xe outstrips the 2500-pound rating of its competitor. It also shows how Jeep is dedicated to ensuring that the Wrangler 4xe can still perform on the trails.

The Wrangler 4xe displays its focus on the outdoors in other ways, as well. In 4Lo mode, the Wrangler is able to use its electric motor to provide instantaneous torque when off-roading. And thanks to a sealed and watertight battery pack, the Wrangler 4xe can still ford up to 30 inches of water.

Wrangler 4xe V. RAV4 Prime - Interior and Features

As stated previously, the Wrangler 4xe still retains its traditional Jeep character. This means that passengers can still fold down the windshield, remove the doors and take off the top. The middle of the Wrangler 4xe's lineup is the famed Rubicon off-road trim, with its upgraded transfer case and locking differentials on both the front and the rear. Though the electric motor brings different sounds to the adventure, drivers can still conquer their favorite trails without fear.

The other trims in the Wrangler 4xe lineup offer an expansive level of comfort. Even the base Sahara trim offers leather-wrapped seating and extra USB ports. And the High Altitude trim offers quilted leather seating for maximum aesthetics on or off the road.

The Wrangler 4xe charges in 12 hours with the included Level 1 charging cable. With a Level 2 charger, recharge time is cut to two hours.. The RAV4 Prime offers Level 2 recharging only on the higher XSE trim.

 Conclusion

As automakers compete to develop the best electrified vehicles for their lineups, Greenville shoppers seek assurances that their vehicles do not sacrifice performance in the name of efficiency. With the 4xe, Jeep shows its ability to produce a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that can still lead the pack. And with the instant torque provided be the vehicle's electric systems, Wrangler 4xe drivers will discover that their vehicles now offer even more exciting off-road capabilities.
