Jeep, the iconic global epitome of 4×4 sport utility vehicles, always induces the image of a majestic metal creature tearing through rugged and tough terrains with a trail of dust which can hardly keep up its volume in front of the sheer presence of the indestructible beauty. This article although provides a slightly different perspective on the compiled utilities of the new Wrangler and the company’s vision as a whole: to prove its worth not just on untrodden paths but also on everyday city roads, thus proving to be the vehicle of choice for the adventurous and the everyday hardworking city dweller in a single breath.
The Swagger: Looks matter
Whether you’re cruising through mountains or getting to work, we all love the lingering eyes that admire our tasteful choice, in that department the new Wrangler passes with flying colours. All of us are aware of the distinctive handsomeness of a Jeep and the Wrangler is no exception, by retaining its classic legacy look its sure to turn some heads. Apart from the assured street cred one would enjoy with it, it’s a 4-seater, which means no compromising on family time or taking your children to school or to just chill with some friends around the city.
How it handles: The on-road experience:
Apart from the seamless experience on the occasional broken roads that one might encounter in an Indian city, the new Wrangler has been specially optimized for a better on road experience too. With the new 3.6L turbo V6 and 2L turbo four engine returning with an addition to a new turbo-diesel V6 and the accompanying improved suspension and torque allow the driver to never shy away from the tight ninety degree and U-turns on city roads. This also means that the car smoothly reaches close to max speeds on highways with a mind boggling acceleration of 0-60 in under 11 seconds!

The Interior: Where you are the closest to your car
The interior has been subject to heavy revisions, the company has given up on the old ‘raw and rugged’ look and as given way to a more modernistic appeal thus also matching with the ever-dynamic city life. The dashboard has seen major renovations with every knob and dial more distinct and uncluttered unlike the previous versions. Moreover, we know what the most frustrating thing about city traffic is, the waiting on very lazy signals. The Wrangler seems to have a solution for that too, a 550 W, eight speaker stereo with a subwoofer and active noise cancellation to cure the painstaking boredom. The car of course doesn’t forget the irrefutable luxuries like Cruise Control, keyless access system for all doors, blind spot sensor, air filter and a theft alarm system to name a few.
Its not a matter of debate that all the above-mentioned features provide exclusive benefits to people who generally use their cars on the road, whilst still retaining the its relative ruggedness and ‘capable of extreme adventure’ charm. It can then be indubitably concluded that this car is for the all rounder.
