Stellantis is going greener, but it still has some work to do. The Jeep Wrangler has never been known for having a decent fuel economy, but the 4xe model helps. The 2024 Jeep Wrangler might be thirstier than you think. 

How many mpg does the 2024 Jeep Wrangler get? 

The 2024 Jeep Wrangler gets an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and up to 23 mpg on the highway. Remember, adding larger tires and heavier off-roading equipment can make these figures worse. 

This fuel economy rating may not seem shocking at first. However, the 2024 Wrangler has an estimated annual fuel cost of $3,260. 

Also, the Wrangler has such a poor green rating that it actually made the list of the meanest vehicles or the least efficient options. 

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy  (ACEEE) made a list of the top 12 greenest cars, greener choices, and the top 12 meanest vehicles by providing each option with a green score. 

Each vehicle is assessed based on its fuel economy, emissions released while driving, emissions from mining batteries, and emissions released during the manufacturing process.

The Wrangler is the sixth meanest option with a green score of 27 out of 100. The meanest vehicle is the Mercedes-Benz AMG G63. It has a green score of 20 and an annual estimated fuel cost of $4,242. 

The greenest vehicle is the Toyota RAV4 Prime with a green score of 71 and an annual estimated fuel cost of $529. 

While it’s true that the Jeep Wrangler 4xe is more fuel efficient than the regular Wrangler, it didn’t land on either of the green lists. It has an EPA-estimated electric range of 20 miles and gets 49 MGPe. It has an estimated annual fuel cost of $2,000. 

That’s only $1,260 in fuel savings compared to the regular Wrangler. But the Wrangler has an MSRP of $31,995 and the Wrangler 4xe starts at $50,695. So it’s about $18,700 to upgrade if you stick to entry-level trims. 

It could take years for the hybrid fuel savings to make up for the price difference. Also, it still doesn’t have the best green score. Going with the Wrangler may cost more at the pump, but it’s been that way for decades.
