Présentation de la nouvelle Jeep Avenger 4xe

Celebrating its rich heritage of exploration and design, the iconic Jeep® brand introduces the remarkable new Jeep Avenger 4xe. Building upon the international acclaim awarded to the Avenger since its launch, this latest addition to the range completes the lineup. Dedicated to embracing electrification, the Avenger 4xe epitomises Jeep brand’s legacy as a global leader in the SUV market, while enhancing off-road fun and all-weather driveability with unique style.

Eric Laforge, Head of Jeep Brand Enlarged Europe, commented: “The Avenger is one of the biggest success stories of Jeep in Europe with more than 90,000 orders – of which almost 30% are fully electric. In the wake of this success, Avenger 4xe will be the new benchmark in the “B-SUV” segment, offering exclusive design, top performance, and represent the full expression of Jeep’s legacy of all-wheel-drive”.

Pioneering customer-centric innovation

The introduction of the Jeep Avenger 4xe signifies more than just the expansion of the brand’s lineup—it symbolises a strategic response to the evolving demands of customers. The Avenger 4xe seamlessly integrates the timeless appeal of the Jeep brand’s design and functionality with cutting-edge technological advancements.

The Avenger 4xe has been engineered to appeal to those who are ‘open air’ enthusiasts, those who love and practice sports, 4×4 owners who wouldn’t give up the additional traction and safety provided by the all-wheel-drive, urban customers who need a compact car during the working week but love outdoor escapades at the weekend, and to people who want to stand out from the crowd.

More fun

The legendary Jeep capability takes a significant leap forward with the introduction of an innovative new powertrain in the Jeep Avenger 4xe, setting a new standard for fun and lightweight design.

This powertrain seamlessly merges the advantages of a hybrid system with cutting-edge AWD technology. At its core lies a dynamic 48-volt hybrid system, featuring a 1.2-litre turbo engine generating 136 hp, augmented by dual 21Kw electric motors positioned both at the front and rear of the vehicle. Paired with an automatic 6-speed dual-clutch transmission, this configuration not only amplifies the fun performance that Jeep enthusiasts crave but also introduces a heightened level of excitement through the E-Boost function in Sport Mode.

The 4xe powertrain sets a new benchmark in the Avenger hybrid line-up with an output of 136 hp and 1,900 Nm of torque – 36 hp and 25 Nm more than the e-Hybrid FWD version. This results in faster acceleration from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 9.5 seconds and a higher top speed of up to 120 mph (94 km/h), while maintaining a minimal increase in CO2 emissions. This robust performance effortlessly marries power with eco-consciousness, and thanks to the coupling of all-wheel drive with hybrid technology, makes it possible to reduce consumption and emissions.

The features and performance of the powertrain elevate the capabilities of the Avenger 4xe to new heights. Even considering that the front-wheel-drive model was already unrivalled in its class, enhancements include improved off-road angles, a 10 mm increase in ground clearance, and the ability to ford up to 400 mm of water.

More freedom

The Avenger 4xe marks the culmination of the Jeep brand’s commitment to providing customers with freedom of choice. By offering a diverse lineup and ensuring each journey is tailored, Jeep empowers drivers to embrace exploration with true confidence.

The hybrid powertrain, combined with the 22.7:1 reducer placed on the rear axle, ensures an extraordinary rear wheel torque of 1,900 Nm, providing unparalleled traction. This capability allows for conquering slopes of nearly 40% on challenging terrains such as gravel, and up to 20% when there’s no grip on the front axle.

The Jeep Avenger 4xe is equipped with a smart all-wheel-drive system, ensuring that 4×4 capability is always available when required. At low speeds (less than 19mph), traction on all four wheels is permanent, with a 50:50 split. Between 19 and 56 mph (30 to 90 km/h), the rear axle drive activates only upon demand.

Even with zero Nm of torque, the rear e-motor remains connected to the rear wheels for sudden needs. When all-wheel-drive is engaged, torque distribution is based on actual demand, with a potential split of up to 50:50. At high speeds above 56 mph (90 km/h), front-wheel drive becomes permanent, and the rear e-motor disengages from the axle to minimise fuel consumption.

The Selec-Terrain function on the Avenger 4xe allows the driver to select the appropriate mode for any situation: Auto, which offers all-wheel-drive only upon demand, ideal for everyday driving with minimal CO2 emissions; Snow, providing enhanced stability control and smart all-wheel-drive for safe winter road travel; Sand & Mud, tailored for uneven terrains with specific gearshift ratios and traction control; and Sport,  maximising the potent power and torque delivery of the 4xe system, further enhanced by e-boost on the rear wheels.

An exclusive feature of the Avenger 4xe is its innovative Multilink rear suspension scheme, developed and pioneered by Jeep. This feature, typically found on bigger vehicles, enhances articulation on the rear axle, resulting in increased comfort on rough roads.

More Avenger

The Jeep Avenger 4xe emerges as a true embodiment of the brand’s iconic Avenger spirit, blending tradition with a flair for innovation. It takes functional design to the next level with dedicated exteriors engineered to not only stand out but also to better cater to off-roading requirements. This includes features like the rear tow-hook, standard roof bars to enhance load capacity for carrying equipment such as kayaks and rafting gear, and seats made from a durable material that is completely waterproof. Additionally, these seats are protected by an easy-to-clean solution that guards against stains and mud.

The design of the Avenger 4xe prioritises the vehicle’s protection. At first glance, the refreshed exterior elements immediately catch the eye. This includes redesigned fog lights positioned slightly higher and outward, thereby enhancing the vehicle’s nighttime visibility. The roof rails and rear tow hook are also designed to complement the vehicle’s rugged looks.

Front and rear bumpers are made in mould-in-colour material with anti-scratch finishing, while at the front the new bumper further exposes the wheel, offering safety and solidity in rocky terrain, featuring a higher and more prominent cladding protecting the number plate from impact.

Additionally, vital components such as the front lower grill and the radar are protected by a robust bumper, ensuring durability and longevity in rugged environments. The Jeep Avenger 4xe also features the new optional bonnet sticker, made of matt material, to prevent reflections from the sun while driving.

Step inside, and the Avenger 4xe continues to impress with a host of innovative features designed to elevate comfort and convenience. The cabin welcomes occupants with new seats crafted from unconventional, completely washable, and durable materials, perfect for adventurers who embrace the great outdoors or everyday life.

Meanwhile, standard Mud+Snow tyres provide reliable traction in various weather conditions, with optional All Terrain 3PMSF tyres available for enhanced grip on challenging terrain. The alloys are also black, to ensure aesthetic quality over time regardless of the terrain and driving contexts in which it is used.

With improved off-road angles boasting a 22-degree approach, 21-degree breakover, and 35-degree departure angles, the Avenger 4xe also has a heightened ground clearance of 210 mm. With a water fording capability increased to 400 mm, the Avenger 4xe empowers drivers to conquer even the most challenging terrains with confidence.

Orders for the Jeep Avenger 4xe will open by Q4 of 2024 in the UK.
