2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4xe: A Hybrid That Comes Up Short

155

YEE-HAH. Eighty years after the unique Willys Jeep set the template, Jeep’s Wrangler compact SUV sequence is promoting like there isn’t a tomorrow, chalking up three straight quarters of report gross sales within the U.S., together with 118,666 models within the first six months of 2021.

Sadly, costs are hovering like there was no yesterday. Our check car, a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe, Jeep’s first plug-in hybrid car within the U.S., arrived final week with what I thought of a reasonably staggering window-sticker worth of $65,890. I might need peed a bit of, there within the driveway.
