Jeep will launch the fourth generation Wrangler in India on 9 August. To be imported into the country via the CBU route, this model is likely to be offered in the two-door and four-door variants. Jeep could offer the Wrangler in the Rubicon trim with the Moab exterior package as standard.
Compared to the outgoing model, the new generation Jeep Wrangler features visual updates in the form of a traditional seven slat grille flanked by circular headlamps and LED DRL strips on either side. Highlights of the rear include LED tail-lights and a tailgate-mounted spare tyre. Inside, the model is expected to come equipped with features similar to that of the global-spec model including an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 7-inch TFT LED display, tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel, TPMS and a push-button start.
Internationally, the fourth generation Jeep Wrangler is offered with four engine options. These include a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol unit producing 270bhp and 400Nm of torque; a 3.6-litre, V6 petrol unit producing 285bhp and 353Nm of torque; a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder diesel unit producing 197bhp and 450Nm of torque and a 3.0-litre, V6 diesel unit producing 240bhp and 570Nm of torque. These engines are paired to a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission. The model is expected to be launched with a price tag in the range of Rs 60-65 lakhs (ex-showroom).
