Is Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram Making any Electric Vehicles?


It seems pretty clear that the next major revolution in the automotive industry will revolve around electric powertrains. So, is Dodge, Jeep, or Ram making any electric vehicles? Yes, they are. Stellantis, the parent company of all four automakers, has promised to develop at least one electric vehicle platform for each of its brands. For the most part, there aren’t many official details about what each of these new electric platforms will have to offer yet, but the product experts at Southside Dodge are very excited to share what we know about these future models. Let’s take a look at what might be arriving at the Southside Dodge showroom soon.

What Jeep Models Will Be Electric?


2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe


The Jeep electric vehicle we know the most about is the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe, which has recently arrived at the Southside Dodge showroom. Obviously, the headline of the new Wrangler variant’s story is its Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle powertrain. The turbocharged, 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder engine is supported by a series of electric motors to produce as much as 375 horsepower – more than enough to tackle the toughest terrain. However, when the 2021 Wrangler 4xe is on the road, it will be able to travel more than 33 kilometres without using a single drop of gasoline. Additionally, a high-performance hybrid Wrangler can record the electric equivalent of 4.7 L/100 km of combined fuel economy scores.


2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe


Stellantis and Jeep pulled the curtain back on the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe during the summer of 2021. When the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe goes on sale, the automaker is expecting it to produce 40 km of electric-only driving range and the ability to record the electric equivalent of 4.13 L/100 km. Additionally, the hybrid version of the 2022 Grand Cherokee will use the same gas/electric powertrain as the Wrangler 4xe, also making 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.




Is Ram Making Electric Vehicles?

Full-size electric pickup trucks are coming and Ram has no intention of being left behind. Ram executives confirmed plans for an electric Ram 1500 during summer 2021 – around the same time Jeep bosses were making a similar announcement. There is almost no confirmed information about what the electric Ram 1500 will be able to do, other than it will be available in 2024. You can be sure that there will be a flood of details coming very soon.

Ram trucks may garner a lot of attention for a lot of excellent reasons. However, the full-size pickup truck won’t be the only one getting the electric treatment. Ram has also lightly teased an electric version of its ProMaster commercial van for 2023. Stellantis already produces electric versions of the ProMaster in foreign markets under a few different nameplates. This should make the process of bringing the platform to the North American market easier. Additionally, the American electric ProMaster will share a chassis architecture with the overseas models, meaning that customers could see ranges approaching 230 kilometres.

How Will Dodge or Chrysler Present Electric Vehicles?

Another article taking a look at the future of Stellantis also took a look at how Dodge vehicles will get in on the game. The automaker most associated with muscle cars will continue that legacy but with electrically assisted engines. Our product experts haven’t found any information about how Chrysler plans to enter the electric vehicle segment yet. However, the automaker does currently produce the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid with a powerful V-6 engine that can achieve the combined electric equivalent of 2.94 L/100 km.
