Jeep Took Five of the Top 10 Positions in the Rebelle Rally

Jeep has lived up to its reputation in another edition of the Rebelle Rally

  • The two Wrangler 4xe entered in the competition took the first and second place, another Wrangler finished 3rd

  • The Wrangler 4xe also won the Bone Stock award

  • This is the first time an electrified vehicle won the Rally

The Rebelle Rally is the first all-female desert navigation Rally in the United States. Its sixth edition took place between the 7th and the 16th of October 2021.

Its course stretched for around 1,500 miles (2,500 kilometers) in the deserts of Nevada and California. Drivers and navigators have to find their way to multiple checkpoints by using maps and compasses, since any sort of electronic navigation technologies are forbidden.

Since Jeep is known for its off-road capabilities, it is no surprise the brand has been a partner of the event since its first edition in 2016.

Further solidifying its reputation, Jeep has won this edition of the Rebelle Rally, like it did for five of the six editions.

In the 2021 event, the podium was held exclusively with Jeep Wranglers and most importantly, the two factory sponsored teams driving the brand-new Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid took first and second place.

This is obviously great new for the company because this event was intended to prove to the world that Jeep can make a hybrid vehicle without losing any of its traditional off-road capabilities.

Regular Wranglers occupied 5 of the top 10 positions and the wining team also took the Bone Stock award which goes to the best performing vehicle that is equipped exactly how it can be bought at a dealership, apart from the tires.

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is also the first electrified vehicle to ever win the Rebelle Rally, with the first team scoring first place in 4 out of the 7 stages and never arriving lower than third place in the entire event.
