Jeep Wrangler PHEV Plug-in Hybrid for Sale in 2020 | Mississauga
Wrangler fans are rather protective when it comes to the iconic look of their favorite Jeep model. Jeep obviously kept that in mind with the new 2020 Jeep Wrangler PHEV. The new hybrid will retain the look and feel of the current model. The only difference Brampton, Barrie, Oakville and Toronto is the black body cladding that runs across the hood and over both fenders.
Intrepid Wrangler watchers spotted the test mule of what looks like the European version of the PHEV and decided the plug-in must be hidden somewhere in the black body cladding.
There isn’t a lot of confirmation out of Jeep on the specifics of the new hybrid, but apparently the existing 3.6-liter V6 will be the combustion part of the engine. The electrical technology sits underneath the vehicle in a protected area between the exhaust and the driveshaft. A site near Wrangler’s assembly plant in Toledo, Ohio, will produce some of the hybrid components.
What remains unclear is whether the electrified powertrain will only show-up on the larger model or whether it will also be available on the two-door Wrangler. Since the Wrangler and the Gladiator are mechanically similar, it is possible Jeep will roll out a Gladiator version of the hybrid, but right now Mom’s the word.
