Specs and Price for New Jeep Wrangler

The all-new and completely overhauled Jeep Wrangler will hit Australian showrooms in early April. Showcasing a modern design that remains authentic to the Wrangler’s iconic history, it combines advanced safety and technological features with unrivalled 4×4 capabilities.

For the first time, the all-new Wrangler Rubicon is available with the option to house a 2.2L MultiJet II Turbo Diesel engine, providing 146kW and 347Nm of torque. All other variants come with the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 Petrol Engine paired with the new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and feature Stop-Start (ESS) technology.

“The all-new Wrangler may have evolved, but its core DNA remains unchanged, making this the most capable production SUV on the planet. The Jeep Wrangler sets a precedence by offering renewed levels of style, advanced technology and safety features while remaining true to its rich heritage,” said Guillaume Drelon, Head of Jeep Brand at FCA Australia.

“The new JL Wrangler range offers something for everyone; whether customers are looking for the fully loaded all-new Sport S, the refined yet rugged Overland model or the Rubicon variant for the ultimate off-roader,” Mr Drelon said.

The entire range comes with over 70 standard and available active and passive safety features including Auto Emergency Braking (AEB), Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Blind-Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, ParkView Rear Backup Camera with Dynamic Grid Lines, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM).

The all-new JL Wrangler also boasts premium technological features, with 7.0” Uconnect touch screen display housing the fourth-generation Uconnect system, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available as standard in the Sport S, and an 8.4-inch display standard on all other variants. LED headlamps and tail lamps also feature as standard on the Overland and Rubicon.

Significant improvements have been made to the on-road driving dynamics with subtle changes to the iconic features including a slightly tilted windscreen, tilted keystone-shaped grille, vented hood and a tapering C-pillar. These modifications have considerably reduced wind noise and improved fuel efficiency by over 13 per cent, without straying from the classic boxy body the Jeep Wrangler is known for.

The new JL Wrangler has over 130 MOPAR accessories covering everything from exterior styling, storage versatility, vehicle protection and driver convenience.
