The electrified 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe earned the 2024 Adventure Vehicle of the Year award at the recent 14th annual Hispanic Motor Press awards.
The 2024 HMP jury panel is comprised of independent Hispanic automotive journalists, content creators and industry influencers selected by the organization’s advisory board. More than 20 juror members from across the country evaluated more than 100 new vehicles during 2023.
The jury panel evaluates vehicles based on their features, including overall design, comfort, safety, economy, handling, performance, functionality, infotainment integration, interior design, environmental requirements, driver satisfaction and price, according to a press release announcing the award.
“As the 2024 Hispanic Motor Press Adventure Vehicle of the Year, the new 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4xe overwhelmingly meets the needs of the adventurous Hispanic community,” said Ricardo Rodriguez-Long, president and founder of the Hispanic Motor Press. “A majority of Hispanic Motor Press judges agreed that this SUV sets the adventure standard—able to get you to any destination, whether that’s the beach in Santa Monica or alpine lakes in the Sierras. The 2024 Wrangler 4xe’s new 12.3-inch screen and standard side curtain air bags, as well as its signature removable doors and top and efficient 49 MPGe, make it an easy choice as the best adventure vehicle.”
New for the 2024 model year, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe delivers a standard full-float Dana rear axle and available factory-installed, 8,000-pound-capacity Warn winch in addition to its award-winning PHEV powertrain that delivers 375 hp, 470 pound-feet of torque, 21 miles of all-electric range and 49 MPGe.
Inside, drivers experience more comfort and safety features, with a new interior featuring available 12-way power adjustable front seats, standard 12.3-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen radio and standard side-curtain air bags in the first and second rows.
