People who make an investment in a 2015 Jeep® Wrangler aren’t necessarily concerned with fuel efficiency, as they’re buying a muscular vehicle that can do awesome things off-road (with big power and loads of torque) a lot more than they’re buying a car that considers itself elite in terms of fuel efficiency.
Part of that, however, may be because people who buy Wrangler models have never been presented with a hybrid option for the beloved niche SUV. FCA US LLC knows that if it can find a way to develop a hybrid drivetrain for the Wrangler that allows it to maintain most or all of its power and the majority of its fun driving dynamics, there are certainly plenty of consumers that would be interested in taking that vehicle for a test spin. The federal government, which will continue to push for all vehicles to maintain elite efficiency in the coming decade, would almost certainly love it, as well.
Jeep isn’t going to push on this, though. Engineers want to make sure they can maintain everything that consumers love so much about the Wrangler before they go searching for sneaky ways to eke some extra MPGs out of it. Assuming they can succeed, however, there’s a good possibility that a Wrangler plug-in hybrid gets announced this year, which would be the first that a Jeep model has ever offered. Chrysler may have a hybrid version of the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country by the end of this year, too, which means fuel savings are coming for our Vicksburg customers in the very near future.
