The next generation Jeep Wrangler, three-door and five-door variants have been spotted in India a number of times. This time, OVERDRIVE's sources confirm that the Jeep will bring the 2020 Wrangler by the third quarter of 2019 (Mostly by the last week of August). However, this time, the Wrangler Rubicon which is a top-of-the-line, off-road-oriented variant will be dubbed 'Moab' in India. Internationally, the Jeep Wrangler Moab gets cosmetic updates to set it apart from the Rubicon - such as the blacked-out alloy wheels, off-road-oriented tyres. The Moab gets a decal on the side of the hood.
