Jeep has officially launched the locally assembled Jeep Wrangler in India. The Indian-made Wrangler has a hefty price tag of Rs. 53.90 (ex-showroom). The five-seat off-road vehicle now comes to India as a semi-subtractive unit (SKD) rather than a completely knocked down unit (CBU). The company began accepting advance reservations for the SUV last month. Local assembly of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler began at the same time at Jeep's Ranganjaon manufacturing plant near Pune in Maharashtra.
The new Wrangler is part of Fiat Chrysler's expansion plan to the Indian market. The company has invested more than $ 250 million to increase its presence in India with the launch of four SUVs under its Jeep brand over the next two years. While the 2021 Jeep Compass was the first product to be introduced from the Ranjangaon plant, the second product was the new Jeep Wrangler. Additionally, the other two products will be the Jeep three-row SUV and the next-generation Grand Cherokee.
Inside, the new Wrangler features a highly updated cabin, which now has a modified instrument panel and center console. It also houses an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with connected UConnect 4C NAV technology. Other features include dual-zone climate control, premium leather upholstery, push-button operation, passive keyless entry, and more. For added safety, the Wrangler comes equipped with 60 protection and safety features, including electronic stability control, cruise control, electronic roll mitigation, hill start assist, tyre pressure monitoring, driver and passenger seat airbags, and seat-mounted side airbags, a rearview camera, and more.
