For those who have followed the information that the manufacturer has released in years before, 2021 Jeep Wrangler should not be such a surprise. As a matter of fact, it is more likely that the new model is only slightly changed from the last models in design, but the main change is actually invisible at first glance. The manufacturer actually announced that they will use a new plug-in engine a year ago.
The first we watched at test driving is if there are changes in the design of the front bumper and hood that will show possible changes in the engine strength. Our conclusion is that there could be a new engine, with changes in design that improve aerodynamics.
- The model is fully redesigned and upgraded.
- There is a new plug-in hybrid engine under the hood.
- The cabin should not be significantly changed.
- The price could be high for the class.
Although the changes in the design of 2021 Jeep Wrangler that are worthy of mentioning are only in the front end, those could be crucial for the understanding of changes that the manufacturer will make in the future of this vehicle. There is still robust and rough front end flat and square lights. Unfortunately, it means that the manufacturer has not changed the design of the model in order to improve aerodynamics, at least first test driving did not show that. We expect that it could be different when the final version comes out, but for now, we cannot expect anything.
There are no clues how the cabin in 2021 Jeep Wrangler could look like. It should not be significantly different from the last models, and the manufacturer should upgrade existed equipment. It means that you could see 8.4-inch touchscreen and Uconnect system, as well as phone connectivity and other additions and devices.
There should be significant changes in the engine of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler. Although they said that the new engine should be the same as on Chrysler Pacifica, even the test driving showed that it sounds the same, there could be differences in strength of the engine. The most likely it will be Pentastar V6 model with 260 horsepower, similar to on Pacifica.
The engine in Pacifica is capable to drive 33 miles per charging, which is not that bad, but unfortunately, it should be even weaker on Wrangler due to bad aerodynamics and larger batteries that it uses. When it comes to the changes in mechanic, there are no significant changes. The model will be able to order as front and the all-wheel driving system. During test driving the engine sounded as EV model until 25 mph which prove that it is plug-in PHEV engine.
2021 Jeep Wrangler Release Date and Price
Since there are a few important changes in design and engine, 2021 Jeep Wrangler could cost more than before. Do not forget that Chrysler has the price of only $13,000 for the base model, with the engine that Wrangler obviously has.
However, the last Wrangler has the price of $50,000 in the base model, so we expect that it will be in almost the same range in the future, too. There could be changes in design as well, and in equipment, which could slightly increase the price. Final releasing date will be known later this year.
