Last year, we learned of Jeep India’s plan to assemble the Wrangler locally, and the Indian-made model is now set to hit the road next month. Jeep India will launch a locally assembled Jeep Wrangler on March 15th and it will be sold in India as a completely knocked unit (CKD) instead of a fully built unit (CBU). The Jeep Wrangler 2021 will be assembled at the Ranganjaon facility and prices are expected to drop once it enters domestic production. Jeep India has also announced an investment of Rs. 180 crore in our market, part of which will go towards the local manufacturing of the Wrangler.
Jeep Wrangler 2021 updated features
The Jeep Wrangler launched at Rs. 63.94 lakh (ex-showroom, India) in 2020 with the first batch sold out last year. The Jeep Wrangler comes with an updated cockpit with a revised instrument panel, while the center stage is taken by the Uconnect 4C NAV 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, dual-zone, automatic climate control and more. The new Wrangler also comes with features like passive keyless entry, push-button start, and more. The Wrangler comes with a five-seat cabin design with premium leather upholstery and a well-appointed dashboard and features soft-touch leather with contrast white stitching.
Jeep Wrangler 2021 updated engine details
The SUV also has differential locks that can be activated via an electronic switch in the center console and a button to disengage the anti-roll bars for the added hinge. It is clear that the Jeep Wrangler 2021 will have an all-wheel-drive high and low (4WD) mode along with the new automatic four-wheel-drive mode that will work in conjunction with sensors that measure traction. The high-power 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine is offered and is mated to a new eight-speed automatic gearbox.
