Jeeps outs pricing and spec for new JL Wrangler

Petrol-heavy, auto-only Jeep JL Wrangler line-up revealed ahead of April debut

17 Jan 2019

JEEP Australia has detailed local pricing and specification for its completely new-generation JL Wrangler off-roader, which has been trimmed to six variants with price rises across the board to now start from $48,950 plus on-roads for the renamed two-door Sport S.
Pricing has increased between $7960 for the two-door Sport S (previously named Sport) and $9960 for the petrol-powered, top-spec Rubicon, while the flagship Wrangler grade now also gains a turbo-diesel variant, which sits atop the line-up at $68,950 plus on-roads.
All variants bar the range-topping Rubicon will be powered by the carry-over 209kW/347Nm 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 now mated to a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic and full-time four-wheel-drive system, while the six-speed manual has been deleted from the range.
The old 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine in the outgoing range has been swapped out for a smaller 2.2-litre unit, which is also paired to an eight-speed ZF auto and produces 147kW/450Nm.
Australia is not scoring the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 offered in other markets, which is currently used on the Grand Cherokee large SUV.
Braked towing capacity is rated at 2495kg for the four-door, down to 1497kg in the two-door.
A range of new interior enhancements and safety features help bring the new Wrangler into the 21st century, with features such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert to be made either standard or optionally available.
Helping keep its hardy off-road roots are the retention of its solid axles front and rear, body-on-frame construction and boxy styling, which has nevertheless been lightly modified to reduce wind noise and improve fuel economy.
The range opens with the newly named Sport S available in two- or four-door guise, which includes 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights with daytime running lights (DRLs), push-button start, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 7.0-inch Uconnect touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, eight-speaker audio system, black soft-top, Selec-Trac traction control system, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.
Stepping up to the Overland adds 18-inch alloys, AEB, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, front parking sensors, leather-trimmed seats with Overland logo, removable hardtop with Freedom panels, LED headlights, tail-lights, foglights and DRLs, 8.4-inch Uconnect multimedia system with satellite navigation, nine-speaker Alpine audio system, 230V power outlet, and remote start.
The off-road-focused Rubicon is also based on the Sport S, and adds 17-inch polished alloys with black pockets, front and rear locking differentials to go with the Rock-Trac traction control system, heavy-duty front and rear axles, front stabiliser bar disconnect, heavy-duty rock sliders, winch-compatible steel front bumper, 32-inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, the active safety features, LED lights and multimedia system from the Overland, removable back hardtop with Freedom panels, Rubicon hood decal, 230V power outlet, remote start and off-road pages.
Over 130 accessories from Mopar will be available for purchase for those looking to set their Wrangler apart from the crowd.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia head of Jeep brand Guillaume Drelon said the new Wrangler would focus on remaining one of the most off-road capable vehicles available for sale.
“The all-new Wrangler may have evolved, but its core DNA remains unchanged, making this the most capable production SUV on the planet,” he said. 
“The Jeep Wrangler sets a precedence by offering renewed levels of style, advanced technology and safety features while remaining true to its rich heritage."
