Ahead of its launch in India on March 15, Jeep dealerships across the country have started accepting bookings for the upcoming Wrangler SUV. Separately, the company has announced that the assembling of the vehicle is underway at its Ranjangaon plant in Maharashtra. As for the key highlights, the 2021 Wrangler will have an off-road-friendly design, an updated cabin, and a 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine.
The SUV will have a tailgate-mounted spare wheel
The upcoming Jeep Wrangler will be a 5-door SUV with a vertical 7-slat grille, removable doors and roof, a drop-down windshield, circular LED headlamps, LED DRLs, and a spare wheel mounted on the tailgate. On the sides, it will be flanked by blacked-out ORVMs, heavy wheel arch cladding, flat fender flares, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The off-roader will be powered by a turbo-petrol motor
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is expected to run on a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine that is capable of producing 268hp of maximum power and 400Nm of peak torque. The motor will come paired to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.
