Latest spy-shots of a 3-door Jeep Wrangler captures the SUV with ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) stickers on the windshield, indicating that the SUV is currently doing testing in India and can potentially make its market debut in the upcoming months.

Though the test mule was spotted without any moniker, it looked like the Sahara trim of the Jeep Wrangler. The SUV was spotted sporting 18-inch alloy wheels with flared wheel arches and a spare wheel mounted on the tailgate. The front stayed true to the iconic Jeep style, sporting a seven-slat grille. Additionally, the SUV had LED headlights at the front.


Though the powertrain options for the next-gen Wrangler aren’t clear at the moment, the 3.6 litre V6 naturally aspirated Pentastar petrol engine is highly likely to be continued. Reports suggest that additionally, a 2.0 litre or 2.2 litre turbocharged diesel engine should also be on offer.

In other international markets, the Wrangler also has a 2.2 litre, 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine option which employees mild-hybrid technology. However, chances of launch of this engine option in India are slim. As far as the gearbox options are concerned, the Jeep Wrangler is expected to come along with just an eight-speed automatic unit and no manual transmission option.


Though the spy-shots don’t reveal any details regarding the cabin, the updated Wrangler is expected to feature an Uconnect 4C NAV 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Other features on offer are passive keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start and much more.

The current generation Wrangler (only a 5 door variant is available) starts retailing around Rs 58.7 lakhs (MSRP) and we expect the next generation to be priced with a slight premium, accounting for the additional new features which the next generation model will come along with.

Re: New Jeep Wrangler SUV 3 & 5-Door Variants Spied!

Next Generation JEEP WRANGLER SUV Spotted testing undisguised in India

The next generation Jeep Wrangler has been spotted testing in India. The JL-generation of this iconic off-roader made its debut last year internationally, replacing the ageing JK-generation currently available in India. This is the first all-new Wrangler since 2007.


The Wrangler has been thoroughly updated but continues with a purposeful ladder-frame construction. This frame is lighter and has also led to the car becoming longer, freeing up more interior space. The body uses mainly high-strength steel but the hood, doors, and windshield frame are made of aluminium and the tailgate is magnesium. Off-roading capability has improved with better approach and departure angles, electric front- and rear-axle locks, a limited-slip differential and up to 30 inches of water fording ability. The 277mm groun clearance also helps in this regard.


Styling is evolutionary. The classic Wrangler ,and consequently Jeep, look has been re-interpreted for the new car with subtle changes being made everywhere, including in the seven-slat grille and the now LED-equipped round headlamps.

The waterproof interiors have been completely reworked too. It still follows the geometric, retro-themed layout of the previous car but is now better made and more feature packed. The new Uconnect infotainment, similar to the one seen on the Jeep Compass stands out.


The new Jeep Wrangler is available with a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol turbo-charged unit and the 3.6-litre V6. The all-new 2.0-litre turbocharged engine makes 274PS and 400Nm of torque and is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. But of most interest to us is the 2.2-litre diesel motor available in European markets. This makes 200PS and 448 Nm.The Wrangler is available in a 3 and 5 door bodystyles and four trim levels internationally. These are Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon. But it remains to be seen what Jeep actually offers in India. The model we spotted was the three-door version so we can expect both body styles to be made available. This should also make the wrangle slightly more affordable. The JK generation car is sold here at around Rs 75 lakh, making it a pricey proposition.

The Wrangler can trace its lineage directly to the iconic Willy MB and has had a cult following ever since. The SUV stands out with its singular focus on off-roading. This new generation aims to strike a better balance and broaden its appeal, especially in new markets like India.

New Jeep Wrangler Disappoints With 1 Star In Europe NCAP Crash Tests

New-Jeep-Wrangler-Euro-NCAP.jpg
Euro NCAP stated its displeasure on the Wrangler by saying that it was “truly disappointing” to see a new car in 2018 with no autonomous braking and lane assistance. It also said there’s no better time for FCA to improve its safety standards against competitors.

And this Jeep Wrangler has air bags, abs , esp etc. Yet its 1 star rating. So structural strength does play a significant role in safety for a car not just air bags, abs, ebd etc. This we need to educate the people with.
