The upcoming 2021 Jeep Wrangler will be an exciting model. According to the newest reports, this SUV will get its hybrid variant. Known as Wrangler PHEV, a hybrid version will deliver more power and improved fuel efficiency. Moreover, its release date is finally available. As for the changes, Jeep will introduce a couple of interesting updates.
The biggest reason for such radical moves is the arrival of Ford Bronco. Bronco will be Wrangler’s biggest rival, not only in 2021. For that reason, Jeep is ready to offer even better SUV while the price shouldn’t change at all.
2021 Wrangler Performances
The fourth-gen Wrangler is present for two years. For that reason, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler will arrive with the same styling as it is a relatively fresh model. However, Jeep will deliver some sort of mid-cycle refreshments. Still, standard 3.6-liter V6 remains.
This unit delivers 285 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. Wrangler offers both manual and automatic transmission once again. Overall, nothing changes for Wrangler and its gasoline powertrain option.
Wrangler Diesel is Available Too
Jeep is stepping up its game after Ford revealed its Bronco SUV. For that particular reason, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler will also offer a diesel engine. A 3.0-liter V6 is available, and it will produce 265 hp. Moreover, this turbodiesel option generates 445 lb-ft of torque.
Diesel is perfect for Wrangler’s primary purpose, and that is off-roading. We are still waiting for engine specs, including its fuel economy and towing capacity ratings.
What About Wrangler Hybrid?
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler PHEV is a novelty everyone has been waiting for. We already wrote about this model, and you can find more information HERE. The hybrid variant will slightly depart in terms of design. The center section looks clearer that includes the space between the taillights. The hybrid setup will sit between the exhaust and driveshaft space.
The rest of the vehicle will remain. That means front fascia will host the same seven-slot grille and angular headlights. Practical exterior with removable doors and windshield remains intact. We are waiting for Jeep to release more info, but we know that the Wrangler PHEV will provide more power and higher fuel efficiency.
2021 Jeep Wrangler Release Date and Price
The price of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler shouldn’t change. Just like its predecessor, a new model will cost around $30,000. As for the PHEV variant, the price closer to the $40,000 is what everyone expects. The latest information is saying that the 2021 Wrangler will go on sale this summer. Jeep will open order books on July 8th. That means Wrangler SUV is one month away.
Everyone thought Jeep would have to reschedule its release because of the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the brand is sticking to its original plans. We don’t know when Ford plans to release its brand-new Bronco SUV. We can’t wait for this rivalry to start because Blue Oval manufacturer has big plans for its new model. Whatsoever, Bronco sounds promising at this moment. We still need to wait a little more and see what Ford’s latest model has to offer in reality.
