  1. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    The loud noise kicked in maybe 5 or 6 times for me so far in my five weeks of ownership and 1,275 miles (260 hybrid, 1,015 electric, 1/8 tank of gas remaining from dealership fill-up). I plug in all the time and I don’t experience this on startup. It has kicked on a few times (but not always)...
  2. Dissapointed in the 4xe Max Regeneration mode

    I agree completely! I wanted a Wrangler. I was thrilled to have an option to have a PHEV version. I now have my first of both and couldn’t be happier.
  3. Battery better then I thought!

    $0.13/kWh here in SE PA $2.97/gal regular gas Yields 22.8 kWh for the cost of a gallon of gas. Therefore: 1.7-1.9 miles/kWh = 39-43 mpg on electric for the cost of a gallon of gas. That works well enough for me during the week that longer weekend road trips running hybrid still only bring me...
  4. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    Funny you should say that... I just logged my first 1,000 miles and have not yet been to the gas station. I picked up my 4xe from the dealership the evening of April 3. I hit exactly 1,000 miles on my odometer as I pulled in to my garage after the last trip of the night on May 1. I’m a fairly...
  5. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    Agreed. I’m also netting between 26 and 28 miles per full charge. I’m sure that’s because I’m in a Sahara with standard tires and I’m not running air conditioning or heating yet. I expect reduced mileage on the battery as I engage more climate control.
  6. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    At those costs I would never charge at home. Here in SE PA we are less than half of that cost. There are a few local chargers here in PA that are free and my work provides free charging. I hope that is also available in MA.
  7. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    So the typical 1-gallon dummy-buffer is baked into the gauge. That buffer has saved my butt a few times...now I’ll have the battery to take me a little farther if needed.
  8. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    My commute is 30-minutes (10.5 miles) each way (suburbia to highway to town). Last weekend I added about 100 miles of backroad small town driving in the engine after depleting the battery I have been running hybrid on full regen. stats: 754 total miles 564 electric 190 hybrid I’m still on my...
  9. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    I posted this in another thread and thought it might be useful here. Date: Monday, April 19, 2021 I’m on my original fill up from the dealership at pickup on April 3 — for 610 miles and counting! Almost all of my ICE driving has been suburban “city” stop and go driving. UConnect says I’ve...
  10. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    I wish we had the CA model with flat rate for transmission. Here in southeast PA (PECO), we pay everything by the kWh: $0.06609 for distribution $0.05607 for generation $0.00506 for transmission I roundup to $0.13/kWh for ease and to give me some room if rates or taxes increase. There also is...

    I hope this helps... I’m on my original fill up from the dealership at pickup on April 3 — for 610 miles and counting! Almost all of my ICE driving has been suburban “city” stop and go driving. UConnect says I’ve driven 173 miles on “hybrid” and I’m at almost exactly 1/2 a tank. To be...
  12. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    Two week update. I just returned from a few hours of a road trip where I couldn’t plug in. It gave me a good chance to drive in true hybrid mode instead of just on battery. Stats as of today: 594 total miles -421 battery miles - 173 hybrid Side question: is there an expert on this forum...
  13. Which level 2 charger to get?

    First of all, as a fellow Snazzberry Sahara 4xe driver, I like your style! Our local PA utility doesn’t offer any rebates except for commercial uses. Are there any other advantages to charge point? I downloaded their app just in case I wanted to charge up while I’m out and about.
  14. Which level 2 charger to get?

    This just arrived. I used it for the first time tonight. I plugged it into our dryer outlet (laundry room adjacent to the garage). Super fast 2.25 hour charge from <1% at 32 amps. Clear screen showing charge rate and amount of time spent charging. Nice to use the entire charge on the...
  15. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    I haven’t driven on e-save, so all hybrid miles are with electric assist. That’s the way I’ll run normally. Even when the battery was “depleted” to <1%, she ran on just electric when in parking lots and in 25 mph residential areas. Not sure how to get pure gas mileage without hybrid, or if...
  16. Owners show off your new 4xe!

    just noticed the intermittent missing backup lines yesterday. And yes, the refresh on UConnect only works sometimes. Since we are mentioning glitches, anyone else have the lock not work once or twice when pressing the button on the handle? I thought it was just me... but that’s what I thought...

    From my UConnect... I’m not sure why the mpg doesn’t appear here. The 29.4 shows on my dash. At this rate, my initial tank of gas from the dealership will last until June!!
  18. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    I’ve used approximately 1/8 tank of gas for 300 miles. not bad for just over 2 gallons of gas! More stats: I’m not on solar (yet), so it costs me $0.13/kWh here in SE PA. That’s $2.25 if the battery is totally empty... but I believe the battery is supposed to keep about 15% of its charge when...
  19. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    No access to a dyno, or a good, safe run for 0-60. I can tell you my stats for the week, though: 293 total miles •225 battery •68 hybrid Dash shows 28.5 mpg. The engine kicked in and I did feel some oomph when I was at a stop sign and had to cross traffic that didn’t have stop signs. Smooth...

    Hi All! As you can tell from my username, I’m new to the Jeep family. Just thought I’d introduce myself as I check out the different threads. Meet Jewel... 4xe Sahara — conceived (ordered) in January and delivered/brought home April 3. Looking forward to top-off, doors-off driving and my first...
