Jeep has launched some sort of petrol variant on the Wrangler Unlimited in Asia at a price tag involving Rs 56 lakh. ?This company brought the Wrangler to be able to India last year combined with the Cherokee and the SRT, and had been priced at Rs 85 lakh, a little too high for that Indian market. In the time the launch, there was clearly rumours about a petrol variant coming to India, since, there is a gas Wrangler on sale in marketplaces abroad. Finally it is here and is valued Rs 19 lakh cheaper than its diesel cousin.
The petrol Wrangler is available in the five-door Unlimited model, but instead of the 197.2bhp, 2.8-litre diesel engine, there is a tougher 3.6-litre, Pentastar V6 petrol powerplant, making 280bhp (83bhp more than the particular diesel variant) during 6,350rpm and 347Nm ?regarding torque at 5,300rpm (113Nm short of the 460Nm located on the diesel Wrangler). Similar to the diesel Wrangler, the gas variant also turns into a five-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel-drive system as typical. Apart from the addition of the particular petrol engine, there isn’t a other change in relations to features or layout.
With this new price, the Wrangler will go on the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Land Rover Discovery Sport and BMW X3, even though there is still no immediate competition to the North american off-roader as the others are soft-roaders.
