Every person may have once dreamed of owning a Jeep. Be it a kid or an older person, when we hear the name Jeep, the only thing that came into all of our minds is about offroading. The new 2021 Jeep Wrangler can’t disappoint either. When looking at the new Wrangler, the first thing that may grab our sight is the retro-looking vibe that it offers. But if we begin to find similarities between this and the vehicles from the past, Wrangler may feel like a vehicle from the future for them.
Comparing the 2021 Wrangler with vehicles from the past is a joke. But comparing it with the last generation is not. Today we will see all the new features of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler compared against its previous generation.
2021 Jeep Wrangler Lineup
For the newest generation of Wranglers, Jeep has introduced nine models in its lineup. It is starting from $28,810 to around $60000, choosing between two-door and four-door options and even the option to choose between The plug-in hybrid 4xe and the all-out powerful Rubicon 392 engine other than the regular V6 and V8 engines, more on that later.
The plug-in hybrid 4xe will have a turbocharged four-cylinder combined with an electric motor for delivering an output of 375-hp, which could reach 60mph within 6 seconds. While in electric, the vehicle can move up to 25 miles. Even after including a battery pack, the ground clearance of the plug-in hybrid models remain the same. Also, this engine is only available in the four-door Unlimited models.
With the Rubicon 392 model, Jeep has gone all out. When looking at the 33-inch tires, it is certain that the Rubicon 392 model is Wrangler’s one of the best off-road gear. With the promise of reaching 60mph in just 4.5 seconds, this guarantees that the Rubicon 392 will be the most powerful among the pack with its 6.4-liter V-8 engine.
The cheapest model will come with a 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6 from the previous-generation. Buyers can choose between the 6-speed manual, which could reach 60mph in 6.1 seconds, or the 8-speed automatic gearboxes. Other than the standard V-6 and optional four-cylinder hybrid, Jeep has equipped Wrangler with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with hybrid-assist. There is also a 3.0-liter diesel V-6.
As we have said, the standard model is just barebone. It only has the power to do off-roading with that vintage look. Go a little bit expensive to reach the Sports S model. You will get additional features like air conditioning, power windows and locks, automatic headlamps, a leather-covered steering wheel, heated mirrors, and more.
Customers can choose the Technology package, including a 7.0-inch touchscreen system, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. The Rubicon model gets an optional Rock-Track four-wheel-drive system. Along with TrailCam’s exterior camera system, Rubicon models are equipped with a larger 8.4-inch infotainment display.
As tests from National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) or The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety(IIHS) haven’t been conducted yet on the Newly launched Wrangler, we still can’t comment on the Safety standard of the vehicle. It is also worth noting that Jeep is not offering much of any driver assistant feature, which it’s a competitor in the similar pricing is offering.
