Wrangler is approaching the time when the mid-cycle upgrades are projected. Because there will be no substantial modifications next year, the 2023 Jeep Wrangler will most likely see a few key changes. One of them has already been revealed. The Magneto version takes the game to a whole new level. This will be an all-electric SUV, the ultimate stage of progression following the 4xe model with a plug-in hybrid system.
Nonetheless, most customers choose the Wrangler for its off-road capabilities. This is one of the greatest four-wheel-drive cars in the world and the top choice for explorers and off-road enthusiasts. Even without the Rubicon option, the SUV is capable of delivering a high level of performance. Wrangler is available in both two-door and four-door body styles. And while the redesign won’t happen, the 2023MY will deliver a couple of dramatic updates. Here’s everything you need to know about this upcoming model.
2023 Wrangler 4xe
Jeep’s electrification plans started with the 4xe plug-in hybrid, and the obvious decision was to expect an all-electric version in the near future. It will take place next year when the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Magneto will make its premiere. It is too early to discuss possible outcomes. However, based on the PHEV configuration, we may anticipate a lot from the EV variant.
The 2023 Wrangler 4xe is using a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is assisted by electric motors. The SUV has 375 hp and can be driven only by batteries. The plug-in hybrid variant has a range of 21 miles. It is still a potent 4×4 SUV, owing to the PHEV system’s 475 lb-ft of torque.
What About Magneto Model
The latest reports are saying that the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Magneto will hit 60 mph in less than six seconds. According to some analysts, a manual transmission will also be offered. The all-electric Magneto variant will sit on the STLA Frame platform (built for electric pickup trucks) with a range of around 310 miles.
Jeep utilized a custom-built axial flux electric motor that works at 6,000 rpm, together with four battery packs with a total capacity of 70 kWh, to power an 800-volt system on the Wrangler Magneto. Another feature of the design is a 6-speed manual transmission with regen accessible during clutch engagement. Gasoline-powered Wrangler develops 285 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Wrangler Magneto will provide even better performances.
2023 Jeep Wrangler Launch Date and Price
For the 2023 Jeep Wrangler, there are two critical moments. The launch date will be determined by the pace with which the new styling and electric Magneto powertrain are developed. Those two novelties could arrive separately, with a few months between them. The entry-level model should cost less than $29,000 for a two-door variant. A four-door Unlimited costs around $3,500 more. Upper trim levels with more luxury will start at above $50,000 As for the Wrangler 4xe with a hybrid powertrain, this model will start at about $50,000. Anyway, the new 2023 Wrangler will hit the dealerships next summer and we expect exciting upgrades and new versions.
