Just one month after the comprehensive go-local strategy was
announced by Jeep brand, Jeep India has commenced local assembling of the 2021
Jeep Wrangler in its Ranjangaon joint venture manufacturing facility.
Jeep Wrangler has an unmatched combination of off-road
capability, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, advanced fuel-efficient
powertrains, superior on- and off-road dynamics, and a host of innovative
safety and advanced technology features.
“Jeep has always represented the ultimate in capability
and open-air freedom, and we are incredibly proud that our Made-in-India
Wrangler protects that important legacy in the market,” said Partha Datta,
Managing Director – Jeep India.
“The Jeep Wrangler is the second out of the four
localised products we committed to launch in India. We wanted to make the
world’s most recognised SUV even more accessible to our Indian customers and we
are pleased to be able to meet their aspirations.”
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is now available for pre-booking
before going on sale exclusively in India on March 15, 2021, in 26 dealerships
across the country. Pricing and specifications for the 2021 Made-in-India Jeep
