The undisputed off-road champion and a unique vehicle for everyday urban adventures, the fourth generation of the iconic Jeep Wrangler offers excellent levels of comfort and superior driving dynamics. The all-new Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that writes an exciting new chapter in the legendary history of the Jeep brand, a story which began in 1941.
It is with this clear objective that the iconic Jeep Wrangler has been completely renewed while remaining true to itself, with legendary off-road capabilities, authentic Jeep styling and advanced technology features.
The result is the most capable Wrangler ever, courtesy of unmatched technical contents, which, depending on the trim, include two advanced four-wheel drive, active, on-demand full time systems - Selec-Trac and Rock Trac, plus Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited slip differential and electronic front sway-bar disconnect.
From the roughest terrain to city streets, the all-new Jeep Wrangler is perfectly at ease, and delivers a more modern design, that stays true to the original, combined with more open-air freedom and advanced technology features in terms of safety and connectivity.
Its upgraded 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine delivers 285hp @ 6,400 rpm and 347 Nm of torque @ 4,100 rpm, and now features Stop-Start (ESS) as standard equipment. It was engineered to provide a broad torque band with a focus on low-end torque - an essential trait a vehicle with extreme off-road performance levels such as the Wrangler.
The new eight-speed automatic transmission enables the vehicle to optimise engine output while on the trails or enjoying smooth, efficient power delivery at highway speeds. Uniquely suited to the requirements of the all-new Wrangler, the new automatic gearbox delivers unmatched off-road capability.
The all-new Jeep Wrangler is offered in three different trim levels in the Middle East: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon - all available in two- or four-door configuration.
