That’s not true. eTorque does indeed fix the crappy, buggy ESS system. But it does more than that:

* Rotates the driven wheels a half turn at take-off, thereby reducing driveline stress at the moment of maximum stress.

* Smooths out transmission shifts.

* Runs most electrical systems at speed so engine doesn’t take the parasitic loss.

* Provides rev matching on downshifts.

* Light regenerative braking.

* And, of course, auto start/stop.
Do you have a source for this info? It's great info, I'm just weary of internet lol

So is eTorque a hybrid? I’d say yes; a very very mild one. But it primarily functions to reduce strain on engine and driveline components, while proving minor efficiency gains and a smoother driving experience.

A shame that Jeep has completely failed to explain all of this to prospective buyers.
