Jeep is gearing up to launch the facelifted version of its iconic Wrangler SUV in India on April 22, and ahead of the big day, they’ve given us a sneak peek into what’s coming. While the changes may seem subtle at first glance, a closer look reveals some noteworthy updates. The exterior gets a fresh all-black grille, new alloy wheel designs, and additional paint options. Plus, there’s now a Gorilla glass windshield, adding to the rugged charm.

Inside, the Wrangler facelift boasts a significant upgrade with a larger 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, replacing the previous 8.4-inch display. This new system runs on Jeep’s latest Uconnect 5 operating system, offering improved functionality. Alongside, you’ll find new 12-way power adjustable front seats and convenient wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Safety hasn’t been overlooked either, with the facelifted Wrangler packing in features like six airbags, electronic stability control, hill start assist, hill descent control, and more. Plus, there’s a rear camera and sensors to aid in parking and manoeuvring.

Under the hood, things remain unchanged, with the Wrangler still powered by the potent 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine delivering 270hp and 400Nm of torque. It’s paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and Jeep’s Select-Trac full-time 4WD system, ensuring capable off-road performance.

As for pricing, while exact figures haven’t been released yet, it’s expected that the facelifted Wrangler will command a slightly higher price tag compared to its predecessors, given the added features and enhancements. While it doesn’t have direct competitors in India, the Land Rover Defender 110 emerges as the close alternative in terms of rugged capability and premium appeal.
