Over 75 advanced safety and security features also feature, including blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, rearview camera and electronic stability control along with electronic roll mitigation. Is Another Jeep Wrangler Rival On the Way? The first Jeep Brand hybrid in North America gives you a plug-in electric boost with an impressive 375 horsepower, 470 pound-feet of instant torque and a manufacturer’s estimated total driving range of 400 miles. The off-roading icon does have a strong enthusiast base that drives some corporate decision-making, like adding a diesel engine. Both engines feed their power through a range of four-wheel-drive systems and a two-speed transfer case, giving the choice of either low-range (for rock crawling) or high-range (for higher speeds). The vehicle is scheduled for launch in January 2020. Exterior styling updates remain minimal, with the Wrangler remaining faithful to its original 1987 design. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler PHEV is expected to only be offered in Unlimited (four-door) configuration.
