With a starting MSRP of $53,995, the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe is the least expensive 4xe Wrangler.

The 2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is now the least expensive Wrangler 4xe you can buy. With it’s debut at the 2023 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, MI – it got our attention. Wrangler 4xe can easily surpass the $60,000 mark.

“Jeep Wrangler 4xe customers looking for the ultimate combination of capability and electrification, with a vintage twist, can now have it in the ’23 Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe. The debut of the new heritage-inspired 2023 Wrangler Willys 4xe pairs 49 MPGe, 470 lb.-ft. of torque with unmatched Jeep capability, a 2.72:1 4WD low range ratio, heavy-duty Dana 44 axles and a new entry price point to the 2023 model year Wrangler 4xe lineup, which continues to be the best-selling plug-in hybrid in America.”

,Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America

The ’23 Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe can deliver up to 49 MPGe and 21 miles of all-electric range. It combines the same retro cues as the other Willys models (like Tommy’s former Wrangler), but it’s still high tech. It packs a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four cylinder gas engine, combined with electric power. The combined result is 375 horsepower, and 470-lb.-ft of torque.
