Jeep Wrangler launch on April 22: What to expect?

Last year, Jeep updated its more-than-capable off-roader, the Wrangler for 2024 and the vehicle now gets more tech and features than before. Jeep India now feels that this is the perfect time to launch this car in our markets and is doing so on April 22.

2024 Jeep Wrangler: Design

The face has been somewhat redesigned, but it retains the seven-slot grille for which Jeep Wranglers and Jeeps are generally known. It now has textured black slots, grey metallic bezels, and a body-colour surround.

Globally, the Jeep Wrangler is offered in Sport, Willys, Sahara, High Altitude, Rubicon, and Rubicon 392 trim levels and soft and hardtop choices are also available. In addition, there are a number of wheel sizes as well to choose from ranging from 17 to 20 inches. For the Indian market though, we only expect the hardtop variant and a single wheel size to be on offer.

2024 Jeep Wrangler: Powertrain

Another area where we won't be spoilt for choice is under the hood. While in the United States, the Wrangler is available in 4, 6, or 8-cylinder engines, in India we will get the the same 2-litre turbo-petrol engine that was available in the outgoing car. This engine is good enough for 270PS and 400Nm of torque. It will come mated to an 8-speed torque converter automatic and Jeep's Selec-Trac full-time 4WD system as standard.

2024 Jeep Wrangler: Interior

The interior has been updated extensively with the new 12.3-inch landscape-oriented touchscreen display taking centre stage and it uses Jeep's Uconnect 5 system. The system will support wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other features include 12-way power-adjustable front seats, a new semi-digital instrument cluster, dual-zone climate control and a lot more.

Currently, the Jeep Wrangler is priced at Rs 62.65 lakh (ex-showroom) in India, with the introduction of the updated model, we expect that price to jump slightly closer to the Grand Cherokee which is priced at Rs 80.50 lakh (ex-showroom).
