2021 Jeep Wrangler Made In India Launched At Rs 53.9 Lakh
2021 Jeep Wrangler Made In India is priced at Rs 10.04-11.04 lakh below the fully imported fourth-gen model that was initially launched in India in 2019.
The Jeep Wrangler has released the locally assembled avatar in India. This off-roader is now available in the same unlimited and rubicon-trims as previously, along with a new 80th-anniversary edition, from Rs 53.9-57.9 Lakh (Inaugural, Ex-showroom, India). Originally launched in India as a full imported in August 2019, the fourth generation JL-series Wrangler now saw local assembly prices for the SUV dropping by Rs 10.04-11.04 lakh due to the lower duty on models from the CKD (completely crashed).
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Made In India is only available five-door in the same manner as for the 2020 model year. Even the powertrain remains unchanged and the Jeep continues with a 2.0 liter, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine good for 268hp, and a torque of 400Nm. The automatic gearbox is available as standard with an 8-speed torque converter.
With its 2.72:1 crawl ratio and high-capacity suspension even at the entrance-level, the Wrangler is fitted with a full-times 4WD system ‘Selec-TraC.’ The Rubicon continues with the company’s “Rock-Trac” 4WD fulltime scheme, which has a 4:1 crawling ratio, front and rear differentials electronically locked, electronically controlled swing and power suspension.
Both can also be distinguished by their alloy wheels–though unlimited packs in a package of 18 inches, the more off-road Rubicon version is designed to produce wheels that are smaller in size but sports tires that have thicker sidewalls. The higher ground clearance and the improved entry, ramp break-up, and exit angles lead to the Rubicon’s off-road capability.
Notably, this limited-run 80th Anniversary version is based on the Unlimited Trim, which commemorates the brand’s creation in 1941 and, as such, shares its operating hardware and gear. However, it has some slight touches that differentiate itself as a limited edition.
The majority of creature comforts are also common in the product line, including the LED headlights and DRLs, LED fog lights and leather upholstery, a MID instrument cluster of 7.0-inch color, an Apple CarPlay and Android Auto 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual climate control system, keyless inputs and startups. As a Wrangler, removable doors are given, along with a hardtop roof.
On the protection front, the jeep is equipped to have both front and side airbags, an electronic stability monitor, hill start assist, hill descent control, and electronic roll mitigation. It features a special configuration for the aluminum wheels and the front fenders for the ’80th Anniversary’ and a center console and a cabin front seat.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Made In India is available in five colors –Bright White, Sting-Gray, Granite Crystal, Black, and Firecracker Red.
Assembly operations for the Wrangler began last month at Jeep’s Ranjangaon, in Pune, and bookings have been available since then at 26 brand distributors across the country. In particular, the Indian plant is only the second-largest business in the world in the Wrangler region, and manufacturing is formerly restricted to the Toledo plant in Ohio, USA.
Jeep expects to start local operations for the next-generation Grand Cherokee and the next7-seater SUVs (codenamed H6) at its plant in India following the Compass and Wrangler.
The Wrangler body-on-frame competes with the Land Rover Defender in terms of rivalry.
