Jeep has launched a petrol variant for its Wrangler Unlimited SUV and has priced it at Rs 56 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is available in top-of-the-line model with one petrol engine and six colour options. Further, likes its diesel sibling, this petrol model can be had with a hard top, soft top or no roof at all. In the case of the third option, the car comes without doors. Jeep began its innings in the country with a diesel only model for the Wrangler but now in the face of increased demand, the American automaker has brought in the petrol variant.
This Jeep Wrangler petrol is powered by the 3.6-litre Pentastar engine that produces 285bhp/353bhp which has been mated to a five-speed automatic and full-fledged 4WD system. Other than this major change, the petrol version gets the same design, layout and feature list as the diesel Wrangler.
At Rs 56 lakh, the Wrangler petrol is significantly cheaper than the diesel and put this car in competition with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Range Rover Discovery and the BMW X3 in the Indian market. The launch of the Wrangler petrol also tells us that an standard petrol model for the Grand Cherokee is also on its way.
