2024 Jeep Wrangler refreshed with more tech and creature comforts
Jeep has updated its more-than-capable off-roader, the Wrangler for the 2024 model year and the vehicle now gets more tech and features than before. The Wrangler was never known for its creature comforts or technology but with this new update, the car could appeal to a much larger audience.
The face has been somewhat redesigned, but it retains the seven-slot grille for which Jeep Wranglers and Jeeps are generally known. It now has textured black slots, grey metallic bezels, and a body-colour surround. The Willys trim features gloss black slots and bezels, whereas the High Altitude variants have silver bezels. Jeep says the slots improve cooling and allow for the new 8,000-pound (3,629 kg) Warn winch option.
The 2024 Jeep Wrangler will be offered in Sport, Willys, Sahara, High Altitude, Rubicon, and Rubicon 392 trim levels. To avoid trees and branches, a new antenna is built into the windshield, and many soft and hardtop choices are available. In addition, the firm offers eleven wheel types ranging in size from 17 to 20 inches.
Buyers of Rubicon variants can get the Dana 44 HD full-float rear axle. It removes the wheel hub assembly from the axle shaft and is intended for hardcore off-road enthusiasts. This implies that the vehicle's weight is transmitted to the axle tube, leaving the shaft, which rotates the wheels, free to do nothing else.
The same engine and gearbox options are still available for the 2024 Jeep Wrangler. The 2.0-litre engine combined with an electric motor produces 380PS and 637 Nm of torque in the Wrangler 4xe hybrid.
The petrol-powered Wranglers are available with 4, 6, or 8-cylinder engines. The V6 produces 290PS and 350 Nm of torque; the turbo four-cylinder produces 275PS and 400 Nm of torque; and the 392 returns with the company's Hemi V8 producing 476 and 673 Nm of torque. Eight-speed automatic transmissions and six-speed manual transmissions are still available.
The inside has also been updated with new trim and a 12.3-inch landscape-oriented touchscreen display. Its infotainment system is outfitted with the most recent Uconnect 5 software and a Trails Offroad app with a library of built-in trail guides. Motorized seats with waterproof electronics are a new feature, and the cabin is better insulated than ever before thanks to additional sound mats and reinforced glass. Side curtain airbags are now standard as well.
We could expect to see the new Wrangler in India towards the end of this year. The Wrangler is currently priced at Rs 59.05 lakh in India.
