The action has already gotten underway.

Jeep is ready to go for this year's Rebelle Rally. This rally is a 1,400-mile trek over eight days, and the competitors will face formidable obstacles and challenging conditions. Out of the 18 teams entered in the event, one-third is using a Jeep, including the Wrangler 4xe. Jeep is facing some tough competition, however. Last year a Bronco Sport won the rally, and Ford is hoping for back-to-back wins. The Rebelle Rally is a women-only off-road navigation rally. Competitors have to use headings, find hidden checkpoints, and watch their time and distance using only maps, road books, and a compass. The use of a GPS or any navigation device is strictly prohibited.

“We refer to the Rebelle Rally as the ultimate authentic proving ground for people, products, and vehicles,” said Emily Miller, Founder – Rebelle Rally.

“When we started this event in 2016, we had two goals: to create the ultimate, women-only, off-road competition and adventure, and to create an event that showcases just how capable stock vehicles can be.”

This year's entry list includes more than 100 women from 24 different states and five countries. As mentioned earlier, a third of the field will be using Jeep products. To be more specific, they'll be using Wranglers and Gladiators.

Jeep is also entering three factory teams, and they'll be driving the plug-in hybrid Wrangler 4xe. The Wrangler 4xe doesn't use an eAWD system. Jeep recently introduced its second 4xe model, based on the new Grand Cherokee.

Instead, it uses the tried and tested setup used in the Wrangler for decades, just with a battery and electric motor included for 21 miles of electric-only range.

“The Jeep brand has proudly supported the Rebelle Rally since day one,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “Freedom, adventure, and capability are core to the Jeep brand's values, and the Rebelle Rally is the epitome of adventure and capability. It's the perfect venue to showcase our Jeep 4xe capability along with the capabilities of our female teams.”

The sixth annual Rebelle Rally is underway now in California from October 7 to 15.
