2021 is a special year for Jeep as the brand marks its 80th birthday with a celebration of eight decades of 4x4 leadership, open-air freedom and adventure. To mark the occasion, the company has revealed the 2021 Jeep Wrangler and also introduced the 80th-anniversary edition of the SUV.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler will have enhanced safety features, increased off-road capabilities, and a range of new colours. All models of the updated vehicle will be fitted with the 2.0L EURO6D petrol engine which makes 272 HP. In terms of safety, the new Wrangler gets adaptive cruise control (ACC) with stop and go, accident emergency braking (AEB) and auto high beam.
Jeep has also added new features in the 2021 Wrangler to make it a more capable off-roader. The new model will have Selec-Speed control which is an off-road cruise control that allows the driver to maintain a steady speed during rock crawling and other types of low-speed manoeuvring. Customers will also be able to set a selectable tyre fill alert through the 8.4-inch touchscreen. There’s also a new Off-Road+ (OR+) mode exclusively for the Rubicon model.
A new range of body colours, Hydro Blue, Snazzberry and Sarge Green, are now available on the 2021 Jeep Wrangler range, paying homage to the model’s history. Nacho will also be available as a limited run, exclusively on the Rubicon.
