Jeep India’s locally-assembled model is all-set to launch next month. It will be unveiled on March 15 and sold as a completely knocked down (CKD) unit rather than a completely built unit (CBU).
Jeep Wrangler is said to be assembled at the Ranjangaon facility, and you can expect a price drop after it enters into local production. The company has announced about investing Rs. 180 crore in our market, with a portion of it going towards manufacturing of the 2021 Wrangler. Last year, we all witnessed the launch of the Jeep Wrangler at Rs. 63.94 lakh (ex-showroom, India), with a first batch selling out quickly.
Under the bonnet, the all-new Jeep Wrangler is powered by a 2-litre turbo petrol engine on offer, paired with a brand new 8-speed automatic gearbox. Besides, the Jeep receives a 5-seater cabin layout with premium leather upholstery and a well-designed dashboard. The centre stage is taken by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation option, Uconnect 4C NAV 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and much more.
The 2021 Wrangler comes with revised features such as push-button start, passive keyless entry, etc. It gets a soft-touch leather treatment with contrast white stitching and a different locking system. The new lock of the SUV gets activated by an electronic switch placed on the central console as well as a button to disconnect the sway bars for additional articulation.
The Jeep Wrangler benefits from a four-wheel-drive (4WD) high, and low mode alongside a new 4WD auto mode that operates in tandem with sensors meant for monitoring traction slip.
