locally-assembled 2021 jeep wrangler launched, prices start from rs 53.90 lakh

After a delay or two, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler is finally here! Prices start at Rs 53.90 Lakh for the Unlimited and Rs 57.90 Lakh for the Rubicon (ex-showroom, Delhi). This means that the locally-assembled Wrangler is now cheaper by around Rs 10 Lakh, making it a far better deal. Of course, it is by no means a cheap purchase, but that’s something you are aware of already. To make this lower pricing possible, the American automaker will bring the 4×4 to India in kits that will then be put-together at its Ranjangaon facility in Maharashtra. Of course, while the almost similar-looking new Mahindra Thar is a far more affordable SUV, the pull of the seven-slatted grille is tough for some to ignore.

The JL series, as it is known as the latest iteration of the Wrangler, made its international debut in 2018. Compared to its dated JK predecessor, this one wasn’t ‘just kidding’ around (pun intended). With the new model, Jeep had gone and improved on a lot of areas that had been points of contention for many customers. While the rugged and capable nature of the breed was maintained, the new Wrangler was designed so that it won’t be a compromise on the road. In order to achieve this, engineers and designers at Jeep went about upgrading a few things. To begin with, the brand didn’t want to play chicken with the exterior look and feel of the Wrangler. Its identity and legacy had to be maintained whilst also upping its civil manners.

The new Wrangler features a larger and more prominent grille, with the seven slats now more visible than ever before. Providing company to the new grille are the new LED headlamps that now get a distinctive LED surround effect. Furthermore, the front fenders now come with repositioned LED turn indicators, while the redesigned bumper gets LED fog lamps and looks more butch than before. Jeep has also given the hood a power dome in the middle for that added muscularity. In India, the 2021 Wrangler is only sold in its Unlimited avatar. This means that there are four entry points into the cabin, making this a pretty practical and family-friendly SUV.

The side profile of the 2021 Wrangler looks almost identical to its JK precursor, save for the new alloy wheels. At the rear, the new model sports a more fashionable (and larger) LED setup for the taillights. Jeep has also updated the design of the rear bumper and that of the rear windscreen wiper – the latter is now placed at the bottom than at the top.

There is an obvious visual difference between the standard Unlimited variant and its more off-road-focused Rubicon sibling. For example, the Rubicon comes with hardcore off-road tires that are wrapped around smaller 17-inch alloy wheels. Meanwhile, the Unlimited sports 18-inch aluminium rims. The Rubicon also gets a beefier battery and alternator, while its suspension has been heavily revised as well.

Compared to its predecessor, you wouldn’t have many complaints when it comes to the features offered on the 2021 Wrangler. It gets a remote engine start, automatic headlamps, keyless entry with push-button start, electrically-adjustable door mirrors, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Meanwhile, media is handled by an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment head unit with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay and an Alpine premium audio system. As for the driver, there is a 7-inch part-digital instrument cluster with multiple menus. Tagging along in the 2021 Wrangler are safety features like Hill Start Assist, Hill Descend Control, Trailer Sway Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, Electronic Stability Control, and four airbags. Obviously, Jeep has also thrown in parking sensors with a reversing camera and a tire pressure monitoring system.

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine serves up 268hp and 400Nm of torque. An upgraded 8-speed automatic gearbox then routes the engine’s power to both the axles and all four wheels. Since the new Wrangler is still, well, a Wrangler, it gets two locking differentials and a dedicated transfer case. While it might still be beyond reach for many off-roading enthusiasts, the made-in-India Wrangler will be more affordable to those who wouldn’t have considered it earlier.
