The fourth-gen Wrangler is premium, yet just as rugged as ever.
After a two year-long wait since its international reveal at the LA Auto Show in 2017, the fourth iteration of Jeep’s hardcore Wrangler SUV has finally made it onto Indian shores. The big bad off-roader is a CBU, which means that it is practically identical globally. Although it may look quite similar to its predecessor, it gets significant changes. Here’s a detailed look at the 2019 Jeep Wrangler in images.
At a glance, the SUV new Wrangler retains its retro nature with a design similar to an SUV from the 80s. However, it gets a few modern touches like the addition of LED headlamps, and a restyled bumper at the front.
If you look closer at the headlamp area, you’ll notice that the new Wrangler has had its turn indicators repositioned and has shifted towards the front of the fender compared to its previous position in the side fender.
The Wrangler is not known for its looks or interior comforts but rather its off-road credentials. The fourth-generation Wrangler features an approach angle of 44 degrees, while the breakover and departure angles stand at 27.8 and 37 degrees, respectively. Ground clearance is rated at 276mm, and it also has a claimed water wading capacity of 762mm. The new Wrangler retains its boxy body style like its predecessor and the biggest visual change to its side profile is a different set of alloy wheels.
Going towards the rear section, the Wrangler also sees some changes in the form of a revised bumper among others.
Other changes include a new set of LED tail lamps to cap off the modern exterior touches for the new Jeep Wrangler.
The Wrangler on the inside may seem quite barebones compared to the SUVs of today, but it packs alot of creature comforts for a hardcore offroader. The new Wrangler features restyled interiors that now gets Jeep’s UConnect 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, round aircon vents, and climate control.
Other interior tidbits include steering mounted audio controls, push button start, automatic headlamps as well as rain-sensing wipers.

The new Wrangler is now mated to a 8-speed automatic gearbox with a 4x4 drivetrain and locking differentials on both sides. More electronic aids come in the form of Jeep’s Selec Trac system that feature off-road modes, hill start assist, hill descent control as well as off-road biased ESP and traction control system.and Jeep's Command-Trac 4x4 drivetrain.
Safety features include eight airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, rear view camera, roll mitigation control and ESP.
Available in the sole Unlimited trim - the fourth-gen Wrangler is now priced from Rs 63.94 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), making it Rs Rs 7.94 lakh more expensive than its predecessor. For now, the Jeep Wrangler is the only vehicle of its kind in the country. But that could change when Land Rover launches the new Defender here next year.
