Jeep India launched the 2020 Wrangler in the country at 63.94 lakh (ex-showroom) last year and the company also managed to sell the first batch of SUV only last year. After its local assembly, expect the overall price of the car to fall significantly.
The new Jeep Wrangler features a remodeled cabin space packing an updated dashboard with a centrally positioned 8.4-inch touchscreen navigation infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Some other features of the car include passive keyless entry, push-button start, and more. It gets a 5-seater cab layout featuring premium leather upholstery and contrasting white stitching.
Of course, the cabin will also be loaded with a lot of modern equipment. We believe that the latest Wrangler Rubicon will be offered by Jeep India with a new information system, a revised tool cluster, and a navigation system, among others. And how can we forget the high ground clearance, the high water forging capability, etc. to strengthen the SUV’s off-road capabilities?
