2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid SUV receives $1,005 price bump

Much like Tesla has been doing in recent months by increasing the prices of its EVs, Jeep is once again asking more money for its Wrangler 4xe. The plug-in hybrid SUV has already received a couple of price bumps, and it appears the 2022 model year will cost even more money. Cars Direct has managed to get a hold of Jeep’s order guide for the 2022MY and they’ve discovered yet another price hike.

The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4xe is going to cost from $54,125 including destination fees whereas the better equipped Rubicon trim level will set you back $57,825. In other words, both versions of the electrified off-roader are going to be $1,005 more expensive than before, which is a tough pill to swallow if you’ve been saving for the SUV equipped with a PHEV setup.

It’s especially true if you compare 2022MY prices with the Wrangler 4xe’s original sticker as prices have gone up by approximately 9 percent in only a year or so. Despite several price increases, the plug-in hybrid SUV is in great demand as the 2021MY is technically sold out. Your only chance to get behind the wheel of one is by buying one of the vehicles dealers have ordered, so those who want to spec the SUV will have to patiently wait for the 2022MY.

Although in some cases price increases are reflected in more standard equipment, that sadly doesn’t seem to be the case here. Cars Direct reports there are no changes in terms of what you get with the 2022 Wrangler 4xe compared to the previous model year. The silver lining here is the electrified off-roader qualifies for the federal tax credit of up to $7,500, thus resulting in a more attractive deal.

Those interested in leasing should know that going down this route will make the 4xe variant more affordable to lease than the conventional Wrangler powered solely by a gasoline engine.
