India made Jeep Wrangler launch postponed

The made-in-India Wrangler model is all set to hit the roads as Jeep India is ready to launch Jeep Wrangler on March 15 in the Indian market. However, the launch of the locally assembled 2021 Wrangler has been postponed to March 17, 2021.

The iconic off-roader will come with a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that churns out a maximum power output of 268 bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque. This engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and Jeep’s RockTrac 4X4 AWD (all-wheel-drive) system. It will be sold in the country as a completely knocked down (CKD) unit instead of a completely built unit (CBU).

The carmaker commenced local assembly of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler at its Ranjangaon manufacturing facility in Maharashtra.

The made-in-India Jeep Wrangler will get the signature seven-slat grille with round LED headlamps, 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, 18-inch alloy wheels, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, connected car technology, push-button start-stop, fog lamps, washable floors, dual-zone automatic climate control, four-wheel disc brakes, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), keyless entry, hill start assist, front & side airbags, tailgate-mounted spare wheel, premium leather upholstery and more.
