So the Wrangler 4XE is really cool. When they say no compromises, they mean it. 100% of the hybrid system is stored out of harm's way. 4XE will be sold as a Rubicon, Sahara, and a more entry-level base 4XE model. Use of battery power can be deferred so it can run on gasoline power only until you want to use the battery power for situations you want the benefit of the EV only mode.

The 392 Concept? Well, it remains a concept. As the PR answer goes, "We can't comment on future product" and that they are gauging customer interest. Maybe they'll build it, maybe they won't. My gut is on the latter based on what wasn't said and other cues. Who knows. It was still fun to have the keys thrown to me and told to rev the hell out of it. Half-doors are cool though huh? When I asked when we'd be able to buy them, everyone just kept laughing at me with the occasional "Soon, maybe". Take that for what it's worth.

If you have any specific questions about anything you see here, let me know. I have some pretty in-depth notes about the Wrangler 4XE and Grand Wagoneer.

Any idea when we'll be able to order a 4XE?

we're never going to see factory half doors, from these photos no attachment areas for the soft uppers...FCA what a tease.

I've seen one article which shows the 4xe loses 4ft^3 of rear cargo space. Did the rear compartment seem any smaller than a "normal" JLU?

Someone explain to me why half doors are cool?
I've never seen the allure of looking through an inevitably scratched up soft window.

And I can't help to chuckle a bit, whenever I read a comment about the window frame robbing from the open experience. To each their own. Just not my cup of tea.

Wait what???.... You're literally sitting on top of the gigantic lithium battery packs and there's no protection between those things and your ass?

Yeah, I've gone doorless on a lot of vehicles....

To me, just put 'em on or take 'em off. Rolling down the window does the exact same thing as the half door, minus the tiny frame.

I run Lexan panels on my buggies....but really only to protect the powdercoat and keep from gouging the tubes. I actually prefer them without the panels as it's cooler and lets significantly more air through the passenger area.
