The 2022 jeep wrangler for xe returns for its second year on the market as jeep’s flagship hybrid it isn’t perfect but it retains the virtues that made the wrangler such a hit while adding a few of its own of note jeep’s latest ordering guide reveals that 2022 wrangler unlimited sahara 4xe will start at 54 125 including destination while the rubicon 4xe will start

At 57 825 in comparison to their initial price tags which were forty nine thousand four hundred and ninety dollars and fifty three thousand one hundred and ninety dollars respectively that’s a sizable year-on-year price difference though it will soon be joined by the upcoming grand cherokee 4xe the jeep wrangler 4xe is the brand standard bearer for alternative
