All New 2019 Jeep Wrangler Launched In India at Rs 63.94 Lakhs
The much awaited all new Jeep Wrangler has finally launched in the car market of India priced at Rs. 63.94 lakhs (ex-showroom across India). The latest generation Wrangler had its global debut back in 2017 and comes with refreshed styling, while keeping its patent rough and tough visual appeal and highly acclaimed off-road capabilities intact. The new-gen SUV model also boasts of a new petrol engine paired with a new automatic transmission.
Like the outgoing model, only the 5-door unlimited model trim of the Wrangler will be offered for sale in India. It comes powered by a single petrol engine, which is a new 2.0 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder unit that generates a max power of 268 PS along with 400 Nm of top torque. The engine is paired with a new 8 speed automatic transmission.
The new generation 2019 Jeep Wrangler gets empowered with its maker’s SelecTrac 4x4 drive system along with a low-range gearbox to offer great off-roading experience that’s synonymous with the Jeep brand name.
The latest Wrangler SUV has also grown bigger than its predecessor. The rugged SUV is now 130 mm longer (at 4882 mm), 17 mm wider and 9 mm taller than its preceding model. The vehicle’s wheelbase is also longer by 61 mm (at 3008 mm) and it now gets a ground clearance of 215 mm.
Despite its larger dimensions, the new avatar of the Wrangler is also lighter than the outgoing model due to the extensive usage of high strength steel and aluminium in its construction.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler retains its signature 7-slat aggressive front grille and circular headlight design, while new elements include the all-LED headlamps along with integrated DRLs. At the rear end, the iconic SUV flaunts newly designed all-LED tail lights and more muscular revised bumper design. The SUC offers the helpful 41.8-degree approach angle thanks to the front steel bumper while the 18-inch wheels are nestled inside the flared wheel arches.
On the inside, the updates are more prominent with the restyled more premium dashboard, a new instrument cluster flaunting a 7.0 inch coloured multi-information display in between the two dials and the newest 8.4 inch Jeep Uconnect touchscreen integrated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. There’s voice command and steering mounted controls to control various functions.
Similar to the exterior, on the inside as well some of the traditional and patent styling have been retained like the round AC vents and the chunky controls for the audio system, electric windows and dual zone climate control. The premium all-black leather upholstery with soft-touch materials add to the overall plush look and feel of the SUV.
The new Wrangler is loaded with an array of safety features as any patent Jeep model, including four airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, traction control, rear parking sensors, rear view camera and much more.
