This concept gives a glimpse of the next Avenger 4×4 with AWR.
Attendees at the Stellantis event in Paris were shocked to see the electric Jeep Avenger crossover for the first time. The compact sporty SUV features a classic “Jeep” design.
The production version of Jeep’s smallest vehicle, the Avenger EV, was unveiled. It will initially only be offered with FWD and sits below the Renegade in the range. With the dual-motor Avenger 4×4 Concept, Jeep is teasing what an AWD version would seem, even though one is already in development.
The Battery System Sits Within a 400-Volt Electric Powertrain System
The revolutionary STLA 400-volt electrical system, which powers an all-wheel-drive engine with two motors, lies at the heart of the Avenger. Its specifications have not yet been disclosed, although it will undoubtedly be more powerful than the front-wheel-drive Avenger. For some reason, details about the 4X4 idea displayed above are being kept under wraps, but the front-drive Avenger EV, powered by a single engine, provides drivers 154 HP.
With estimates of a 250 mile/400 km range on the European cycle, the 4×2 (2 Wheel Drive) Avenger’s li-ion battery pack is supposed to charge the battery from 20 to 80 percent in under 24 minutes.

According to Christian Meunier, CEO of Jeep,
The Avenger was created from the ground up to be a Jeep vehicle, and the all-electric 4×2 model already features some of the industry-leading features that distinguish the Jeep’s identity. But we couldn’t help but wonder: What if we kept the Jeep brand’s distinctive design language, capability, and personality while injecting its four-wheel drive electric capabilities into a small package?
The release date and specifications for the all-wheel drive Avenger were not provided by Jeep. The Avenger 4×4 has a somewhat superior approach and departure angles than the normal front-wheel drive model, according to the company, suggesting that these advantages will continue after the dual-motor vehicle goes into production.
But wait before you fall in love with it since it won’t be available in the US.
