Is Hybrid Engines the Future for Jeep?

One of the biggest successes of late for Chrysler is the new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.  The new minivan has been winning awards and fans as news of its amazing stats get out.  One of the most notable is how the hybrid powertrain gets it 84 miles per gallon equivalent in electric-only mode and 33 miles of all-electric range.  The future of the auto industry is figuring out how to best approach the upcoming electric trend and with the Pacifica leading the way, Jeep maybe offering hybrid powertrains in all of their future vehicles.

FCAuthority is reporting that Jeep will be having hybrid powertrains available on the majority of their vehicles in the future.  Sergio Marchionne was speaking with reporters in Toronto last Friday and told them that Jeep is at work on hybrid powertrains.  These will “become visible in the next two to three years.”

The article goes on to reference that Marchionne had already said the Jeep Wrangler JL will have a hybrid version.  The Jeep Grand Wagoneer will also have a hybrid powertrain.  It certainly seems to be the way of the future.  The green craze that is going around the auto industry is going to be replicated where it can and the Pacifica is a sign that FCA is committed to achieving this in most of their line-ups.  While Dodge is pushing out the horsepower with their monster engines, it seems that Jeep will be seeing what having hybrid powertrains can help it do.
