Auto Nation Group, the official distributor of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM vehicles in the Philippines, launched the all-new generation Jeep Wrangler at their dealership in San Juan City. Recognized as Jeep’s most capable SUV and the embodiment of the iconic American brand, the all-new generation Wrangler keeps pace with today’s modern cars, from its overall exterior and cabin design to its fuel-efficient powertrains and advanced safety and technology features.
“The Jeep brand is well-recognized around the world and there is no vehicle that represents the essence of Jeep the same way the Wrangler does. Its comeback is also timely for us as we mark our 15th anniversary with the brand as its official importer and distributor in the Philippines,” said Francis Jonathan C. Ang, chief operating officer of Auto Nation Group.
The all-new generation Wrangler epitomizes a true SUV’s evolution that has spanned seven decades since its conception in 1941. This latest generation of the Wrangler is the embodiment of Jeep’s legendary history and its journey to the future. No doubt why it was hailed the 2019 Motortrend SUV of the Year1.
A modern take on the authentic Wrangler design
For more than 70 years, Jeep has preserved the distinguishable look of the Wrangler and the all-new generation Wrangler is no exception. The all-new Wrangler’s profile is built on a sculptural design aesthetic that is immediately recognizable with its angular roofline, muscular fenders, and high stance while keeping its traditional Jeep design cues.
The Wrangler’s new exterior design is bold and rugged with a wide and lowered beltline, fitted with larger windows for better outward visibility on the trails and a panoramic view in the open.
Still present is the iconic 7-slot grille that pays homage to the Jeep CJ and displays both outer grilles intersecting the round headlamps. The grille top is slightly swept back for improved aerodynamics.
At the rear, the Wrangler sports new square LED tail lamps that are now slightly offset on the Wrangler’s body to integrate one of the technological advancements of the vehicle – blind spot monitoring.
It is now easier and more fun to enjoy open-air driving as the Wrangler’s lightweight aluminum built makes key parts such as the hood, fenders, swing gate, doors and hinges easy to remove in less than 20 minutes. The windshield can easily be folded down while retaining the rearview mirror in place. Additionally, the all-new Wrangler comes with body-colored sport bars, which are welded to the body and feature integrated grab handles.
Jeep Signature Interior with State-of-the-Art Technology
The heritage-inspired center console integrates basic functions within easy reach such as the new media center that houses the charging and connectivity ports, climate and volume control knobs, and Engine Stop Start control. It also where the gear shifts, transfer case, and parking brake can be found.
The center console is built with a third-generation Uconnect system, which features a 5-inch screen display with a customizable drag and drop feature in the menu. Alongside it is the 3.5-inch instrument cluster that displays reconfigurable information such as media, tire pressure, and speed among others.
Integrated buttons on the steering wheel control audio, voice, and speed functions, allowing drivers to keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.
The all-new Wrangler also offers generous space including underfloor storage, durable mesh pockets that extend the entire length of the doors, and numerous phone storage areas.
Best-in-Class Engine and Safety Features
The all-new Wrangler is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with Engine Stop-Start (ESS) on top of the tried and tested 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. The engine produces 284 hp and up to 400 Nm of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
“We are introducing a best-in-class 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine on the all-new generation Jeep Wrangler, mated with an 8-speed transmission, as an option to the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine which Jeep fans and aficionados have grown to love. The combination of a 2.0-liter engine with an 8-speed transmission offers optimal engine output, improved highway economy, and reduced noise and vibration, giving you a worry-free journey in any adventure, be it in the city or on the most challenging of terrains,” said Vincent Gaviño, sales and marketing head for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM of Auto Nation Group.
The all-new Wrangler receives a huge upgrade on safety and security with more than 75 available active and passive safety and security features which include blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, parkview rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines, electronic stability control and multiple airbags.
