Jeep Avenger to be Powered by 4xe Hybrid Technology for Europe

The Jeep Avenger, which is not sold in the US as Jeep has reportedly deemed it too compact for American consumers, has been doing quite well since Stellantis launched it in Europe in 2023.

The little Jeep, the brand’s first BEV, has done so well that it was voted European Car of the Year 2023. Now Jeep has announced the introduction of its new Avenger 4xe; this latest model enhances the Avenger’s modest off-road capabilities by combining all-wheel drive with 48-volt Mild Hybrid technology (in mild hybrid systems, the primary power source is the internal combustion engine).

Eric Laforge, Head of the Jeep brand in Europe, commented,

“The new Jeep Avenger 4xe represents a turning point for the brand. The latest version of our successful model combines the compactness and versatility of Avenger with the performance of the all-wheel drive system. The result is an unparalleled capability for a more dynamic driving experience. The new Avenger 4xe is completing the brand’s offering of 4WD SUV in all segments”.

The Avenger 4xe’s capabilities are elevated by an advanced all-wheel-drive system, benefiting from electrification to deliver traction and off-road performance. The vehicle combines a 136-horsepower gasoline engine with two 21-kilo-watt electric motors, driving both axles and providing 1,900 newton-meters of available torque at the rear wheels. The “power looping” technology ensures constant all-wheel drive traction, regardless of battery charge. The 48-volt Mild Hybrid system supports low-speed electric driving through an automatic 6-speed e-DCS6 dual-clutch transmission with an integrated electric engine.

Integrating 48-volt Mild Hybrid technology with all-wheel drive in the Avenger 4xe highlights Jeep’s ambition to provide a sustainable 4WD experience without compromising accessibility for European customers. Jeep’s broad vehicle range, tailored to meet various needs, reflects the brand’s commitment to diversification and environmental sustainability. While unable to purchase the Avenger 4xe, American consumers can experience much of the same technology in the Wrangler 4xe.

Jeep has announced that orders for the Avenger 4xe will commence in Europe by the end of 2024.
