The upcoming fourth-generation Jeep Wrangler is due for India launch on 9 August. In the past, the Sahara and the Rubicon variants of the Wrangler were spied on a test. It is however believed that Jeep might offer the Wrangler in the Rubicon variant with the Moab exterior package which is popular in international markets. The new-generation Wrangler will continue to be based on the ladder-frame construction.
Known for its off-roading prowess, the new-gen Jeep Wrangler uses high-strength steel frame, while the hood, doors, and windshield frame are made of aluminium. As compared to the previous generation, the upcoming model will offer better approach and departure angles, limited slip differential and more. As for features, it is expected to get new Uconnect infotainment from the Jeep Compass.
Mechanically, the US-spec Jeep Wrangler is available in four engine options. These include a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 270bhp and 400Nm of torque; a 3.6-litre, V6 petrol that produces 285bhp and 353Nm of torque; a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder diesel that generates 197bhp and 450Nm of torque and a 3.0-litre, V6-diesel that produces 240bhp and 570Nm of torque.
