2020 Jeep Wrangler plug-in hybrid electric coming

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler will be available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, the automaker announced Wednesday at the 2017 Los Angeles auto show.

The announcement came with the unveiling of the redesigned 2018 model at the show.

Jeep was scant on details for the new plug-in hybrid system, but the plug-in hybrid will be a separate, electrified version of the off-roader in addition to the 2.0-liter turbo-4, mild hybrid system that has already been announced. That mild-hybrid likely uses a 48-volt system, which provides stop/start operation and mild boost during takeoff.

It's unclear if the plug-in hybrid version will be available nationwide, or if it will be limited to select markets.
