If you’re ready to cough up the rather steep INR 71.59 lakh* that Jeep is demanding for its Wrangler, you won’t be kept waiting as the vehicles have already started arriving at dealerships. Talking about the dealerships, all Jeep products will be sold through 10 outlets called Jeep Destination Stores, in nine Indian cities by the end of this year. These images show fresh examples of the Wrangler ready for delivery at the Jeep Destination Store in New Delhi, which is reported to start operations this month itself.
Last month (August 2016), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) India had launched the Jeep Wrangler, along with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. FCA, which owns the Jeep brand, brings the Wrangler to India as Completely Built Units (CBU). Stylistically the Wrangler features the iconic vertical seven-slot grille flanked by round headlamps, while the sides are characterised by the trapezoidal wheel arches. It comes with removable doors, a three-piece, removable hard top as well as with a soft top – a standard addition to the Wrangler package.
Inside, the Wrangler features McKinley leather seats with accent stitching, lockable center console, nine-speaker Alpine music system and a 6.5-inch Uconnect touch screen navigation system accessible through voice commands. For the outdoors, the Wrangler is equipped with the Command Trac 4×4 system and heavy duty solid axles, 18 bolt main case joint clamping and 17-inch silent armour Goodyear tyres.
