FCA  has announced the introduction and start-of-sale of the New Generation Jeep® Wrangler in India. The 5-door 4x4 from Jeep was unveiled by Indian cricketing legend, Kapil Dev, who was Guest of Honour at the vehicle’s press launch.

“We wanted one legend to launch another legend,” said Kevin Flynn – President and Managing Director, FCA India.

The New Generation Jeep Wrangler has been launched at ₹63.94 lakh (all India) and will go on sale in 10 Jeep Destination Stores across India.

Kevin Flynn said, “We are pleased to present the legendary all-new Jeep Wrangler to our Indian customers who have been eagerly waiting for this New Generation model. The iconic Wrangler is an important vehicle for us to have in our portfolio as it is the flagbearer of Jeep values and has been part of the brand’s illustrious history for nearly eight decades, across the globe, and in India since its introduction in 2016.”

The all-new Jeep Wrangler is longer than its predecessor by a massive 130 mm, wider by 17 mm, taller by 9 mm and has 61 mm of the extra wheelbase, resulting in a confident four-wheel stance.

The exterior of the new generation model is more sculpted but retains the retro Jeep styling elements like the external door hinges, body-colored trapezoidal wheel arches, round headlamps, square tail lamps, angular body and new bumpers with integrated fog lamps. The iconic seven-slot grille now has a nuanced frontal bend to make it look sharper and the hood has air intakes. To allow owners to enjoy open-air-freedom, the all-new Wrangler comes with a fold-down windshield and removable hard roof and doors that can be as easily dismantled and refitted as on the previous-generation Wrangler.

Solid axles connect with the Wrangler’s 18-inch alloy wheels which have painted Granite Crystal spokes.

Overall, the exterior styling is chiselled and sharper. Headlamps come with signature LED reflector headlamps, LED fog lamps and LED daytime running lights (DRLs) and stand out LED tail lamps.

The interior of the all-new Wrangler features black leather seats. Dashboard, door panels, grab handles and other elements are padded with premium soft-touch materials, detailed with accent stitching. The UConnect Infotainment System features a large 8.4-inch touchscreen, which has a drag-and-drop menu, including Apple Car Play, Android Auto and a built-in, pinch-to-zoom navigation feature. Phone, media, climate and navigation can be controlled by voice at the press of a button on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Standard features like engine stop/start and the cruise control can also be controlled from the steering wheel.

Bezels, handles and knobs in the interior space are tastefully finished with ‘Grillz’ brushed paint. The 7-inch driver information display in the centre of the instrument cluster shows scrollable data that can be accessed from the steering wheel. The all-new Wrangler also comes with weather-proof push-button start, dual-zone air conditioning and remote key access and go features.

A significant change in the New Generation Wrangler for India is that it will be available with a 4-cylinder, inline, turbocharged 2.0-litre 268 HP 400 Nm petrol engine instead of 3.4-litre V-6 Pentastar, which was offered in its predecessor. This 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol powertrain is tuned to perform like a V-6, deliver like a diesel engine and at the same time, ensure much better fuel efficiency than a larger capacity engine. It is tuned to deliver a meaty take-off and enable a smooth cruise on highways as well.

The improved fuel efficiency is aided by the engine stop/start function, electric power assist, extended fuel shut-off along with a smart transmission shift management system. This 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine is matched to a smooth and quick-efficiency 8-speed automatic transmission, replacing the modest 5-speed automatic that was offered in the previous-generation Wrangler.
