Dr Partha Datta, MD, Jeep India said: “Jeep has always represented the ultimate in capability and open-air freedom, and we are incredibly proud that our Made-in-India Wrangler protects that important legacy in the market. The Jeep Wrangler is the second out of the four localised products we committed to launch in India. We wanted to make the world’s most recognised SUV even more accessible to our Indian customers and we are pleased to be able to meet their aspirations.”

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is available for pre-booking before going on sale exclusively in India on March 15, in 26 dealerships across the country. The pricing and specifications for the 2021 Made-in-India Jeep Wrangler will be announced at market launch.
