Jeep India had confirmed to launch the 2021 Jeep Wrangler on 17 March, which was intended to take place today. The earlier plan of launching all-new Wrangler on 15 March has been put on hold for two days due to organisational priorities.
Originally launched in 2019 as a CBU product, the new Jeep Wrangler is expected to be propelled by a 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The engine is capable of producing a maximum power output of 268bhp and 400Nm of peak torque.
The upcoming 5-seater Jeep SUV will come with an updated cabin that comprises an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay support, Android Auto support, a push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, voice command, seven-inch MID, Uconnect 4C NAV connected vehicle technology, and more.
The exterior of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler highlights the signature seven-slat grille, circular LED headlamps, LED taillights, fog lights, fender-mounted turn indicators, 18-inch alloy wheels, and tail-gate mounted spare wheel. The new Wrangler also offers a removable roof and doors option.
The local assembly of Jeep Wrangler 2021 has already begun last month at the manufacturing facility in Ranjangaon, Maharashtra. It is also available for bookings at the company’s official website and across Jeep dealerships.
Stay tuned to watch the American automaker unveiling its upcoming SUV on Wednesday, 11:30 am.
