When the sixth annual Rebelle Rally takes to the Nevada and California deserts for the 2,200km trek, 18 teams - nearly one-third of the field - are trusting a Jeep 4x4 to help them get to the finish line.

This year, there are more than 100 Rebelles, who hail from five countries and 24 states, and more than a third of the field will be driving a Jeep Wrangler or Jeep Gladiator. The three Jeep factory teams in this year's field will be driving the Jeep Wrangler 4xe.

As the Jeep brand works toward its ultimate goal of zero emission freedom, events like the Rebelle Rally are key to prove and showcase both its industry-best 4x4 capability, as well as its class-exclusive, off-road 4xe powertrain.

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe's propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission for nearly silent propulsion and enhanced 4x4 off-road capability, without EV range anxiety. This arrangement enables the Trail Rated Jeep Wrangler to retain running gear that includes solid front and rear axles, full-time two-speed transfer case, a fully articulating suspension and 762mm of water fording capability.
