According to the latest car news, Jeep hasn’t disclosed any technical information about the plug-in hybrid engine. However, rumors said that it may be the 3.6L V6 engine which is also used in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and already equipped in the new Jeep Wrangler 2020.

Also, the carmaker hasn’t confirmed whether the PHEV powerplant would be used for only the Wrangler or it may be armed for the Scrambler which has the same underpinnings.
