However, the addition of contemporary touches has made the SUV look more modern without losing the original Jeep's rugged DNA. "So we had to ensure to make it look more spacious and maintain the traditional horizontal look". They'll be available for all four doors on the Wrangler Unlimited or for just the two doors on the short-wheelbase Wrangler.
Lower spec versions of the Wrangler get either 7.0 or 5.0-inch infotainment displays and a 3.5-inch display between the regular analogue dials. It is now big on storage too with the centre storage area now being around fifty percent bigger than before. Additional safety tech includes a blind-spot monitoring system, backup camera, rear cross path alert, hill hold and decent controls, all-speed traction control, and both stability control and an electronic rollover mitigation system.

The range sees the addition of two four-cylinder options - a new 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel - that will be aimed at worldwide markets, reports Autocar India.
Under the bonnet, the 2018 Wrangler is offered with two, new 4-cylinder engines, in addition to the Pentastar V6 and V6 EcoDiesel unit. It is possible the Wrangler for India could be offered with the new powertrains. In pursuit of better fuel-economy, all 2018 Jeep Wrangler models will feature start-stop technology.

The new Jeep Wrangler will be continued to be manufactured at Jeep's Toledo facility in the United States and will be sold in India as a fully-imported unit just like the outgoing vehicle. Jeep says the outgoing model is still in great demand and will be manufactured for some more time at the same facility. In terms of competition, what is worthy of mentioning here is how different the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will be from Jeep India's current offerings in the country.
