  1. Wrangler 4XE Recall is a typo

    There is a rumor floating around the forums about a recall on the Wrangler 4XE. It stems from an unfortunate typo and an oddly similar name for an electrified propulsion system made by a company called Meritor. Their integrated electrified propulsion system is called the 14XE. A typo by an...
  2. 4xe recall?

    That is a company called Meritor that makes an electrified power train called the 14XE. There is a typo in the headline making it 4XE. That doesn’t have anything to do with the 4XE.
  3. A 4XE Mystery to Solve

    I’m looking for anyone with inside knowledge on what this name badge is all about. The running theory is that this may have been the original name of the Wrangler 4XE. It would have been 4X4e instead of 4XE. Note that the e looks a lot like the e on the 4XE only without the two prongs on the...
  4. Is Max Regen really valid for daily use?

    If you don’t already know about the blended braking system on the Wrangler 4XE, this video might make you question the validity of using Max Regen on a daily basis. Also, did you know that the Wrangler 4XE is both a series hybrid and a parallel hybrid depending on conditions? I don’t quite...
  5. 1 month with the Wrangler 4XE

    Today marks one month with my Wrangler 4XE. Still amazed and still impressed with the design decisions. It’s just a great overall vehicle. I have developed just a short wish-list. These are not complaints as much as just things I wish were possible. 1-Latching max regen. I would also like to...
  6. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    Yes, we confirmed that it can be towed with the lead engineer on the 4XE project. No, it can’t be charged because everything has to be in neutral. Plus, that would bring the gas milage down on the RV too.
  7. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    That's good information. Thank you.
  8. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    That sets how it behaves when the eSave mode is selected. It’s like two sub-modes within eSave mode. It still operates as a hybrid in both modes. It just places a priority on either keeping the battery where it is or works to actually charge it. Both modes lower gas milage but charge uses more...
  9. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    I was thinking the same thing. I’d like to have a setting to disable creep.
  10. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    It’s being worked on. Stay tuned.
  11. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    It’s a tough test. On the highway, it’s not as beneficial as around town. It would be hard to come away with a fuel economy impact because it would have to be done in hybrid mode over a pretty long trip to see the difference. The real advantage would be in extending electric mode. I want to try...
  12. 400 volt battery safety

    From time to time I have seen posts where people mention tapping in to the high voltage battery for over landing use. The first issue is that there would have to be some sort of conversion to a lower voltage which would require some sort of hardware. If you are going to that much trouble to add...
  13. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    I forced myself to run it to get those 300 miles in. It was painful.
  14. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    That’s a really good question. I’ve only done a couple 120+ mile trips to test and was seeing around 24MPG. I need to take some really long drives to test more.
  15. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    That’s good to know. I haven’t tried to charge it all the way using e-save.
  16. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    I was trying to somewhat match the colors on the screen of the 4XE. Someone at Jeep must be a Cheese Head.
  17. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    After driving the Wrangler 4XE for a while, I've started to create a mental image of how I perceive the software prioritizes power use. There's a lot going on in the software. The amount of code must be amazing. This is nothing official and I have no access to the actual data. I have just been...
  18. 4xe 0-60 in 6 seconds? YES!!!

    I have heard so many poor explanations given by people that should be the people that can be counted on for good information. I've seen videos made by dealers saying the 4XE will get 49MPG and all sorts of crazy stuff. I want to yell at the screen and ask them how a 5000 pound machine could...
