For most off-road enthusiasts, Jeep as a brand holds a special place. Not only does it have products like the Compass, which has captured the imagination of many, they also make some truly capable products like the Cherokee and Wrangler. Just a month after announcing a ‘go local’ strategy, Jeep India has announced that production for the locally-assembled Wrangler has commenced from the company’s Ranjangaon manufacturing facility.
This means that the price of the Wrangler, which currently is in the Rs 63 to 65 lakh region, should come down significantly. One of Jeep’s most successful off-roaders of all time, the Wrangler Unlimited, arrived in 2019 via the CBU route. The Wrangler Rubicon arrived in 2020 and has since garnered quite a lot of interest and intrigue. Right now, all we know is that the 2021 Wrangler will launch in India on March 15, 2021.
The Wrangler is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol motor capable of producing 265-bhp and 40.78-kgm of torque. It comes mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Moreover, bookings for the 2021 Wrangler are now open, and we can’t wait to see what all has changed on March 15. Are you as excited as we are?
