MUSCAT: Dhofar Automotive, the official distributor of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, Fiat and Romeo vehicles in the Sultanate, announced the arrival of the all-new Jeep Wrangler 2021, the unique vehicle for everyday urban adventures. It offers excellent levels of comfort and superior driving dynamics while remaining true to its legendary off-road capabilities, authentic Jeep styling and advanced technology features.

Commenting on the arrival of the Jeep Wrangler 2021, Hatem El-Naggar, General Manager at Dhofar Automotive, said, “The Jeep Wrangler has earned the trust of off-road enthusiasts around the globe due to its legendary capabilities. The same holds true here in the Sultanate, where even today, the brand has a very strong fan following. With the arrival of the all-new 2021 Jeep Wrangler, we are confident that it will be a valuable addition to the Jeep model lineup in Oman. From even the simplest of glances, whether it is the interior or exterior, it is clear that this is an all-new Wrangler. It offers an extremely attractive design that is thoroughly modern, yet stays true to its heritage, further reinforcing its reputation of class-leading capability and performance. In fact, the new Wrangler not only meets but also far exceeded even our own expectations and is a vehicle perfectly suited for both the most extreme of off-road adventures as well as for everyday urban cruising.”

From the roughest terrain to city streets, the all-new Jeep Wrangler is perfectly at ease and delivers a more modern design, that stays true to the original, combined with more open-air freedom and advanced technology features in terms of safety and connectivity. It is offered in three different trim levels: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon – all available in two- or four-door configuration. 

The all-new Jeep Wrangler builds on a sculptural design aesthetic that is immediately recognizable with its traditional Jeep design cues, from the round headlights to the seven-slot grille; from the trapezoidal wheel arches to the visible hinges; from the folding windshield to the sport bar; from the removable doors to the open-air configurations with a hard top or soft top.

The interior of the new Jeep Wrangler combines authentic styling, versatility, functionality and intuitive feature use, in addition to a more stylish and comfortable cabin, thanks to the use of high-quality materials and finishes.  

Jeep functionality and versatility are celebrated in the completely restyled centre console which houses the gear shift selection, transfer case and parking brake. Real bolts are featured on the shifter and grab handles and frame the infotainment screen, highlighting genuine construction methods.

The instrument cluster features a 7-inch / 177.8 mm thin-film transistor (TFT) information LED display. Offered as standard on the Sahara and Rubicon versions, the display is full-colour and allows the driver to configure information in more than 100 ways. Integrated buttons on the steering wheel control audio, voice, and speed functions and allow the driver to keep their hands on the wheel at all times.

The centre console features a standard 7-inch / 177.8 mm touchscreen for the Sport, Sahara and Rubicon. Also available for the Sahara and Rubicon is an 8.4-inch / 213.36 mm touchscreen, with the latter being the largest and most advanced UconnectTM display ever offered on a Wrangler. The fourth-generation UconnectTM system enhances the user interface and system performance with quicker start-up times and improved screen resolution. Directly below the touchscreen are functional features such as climate and volume control knobs and media connectivity ports.

Jeep Wrangler has always stood out for its functionality and the ability to give drivers the possibility to enjoy any adventure with the utmost ease. The all-new Wrangler is no exception, offering a host of clever storage solutions, durable mesh pockets that extend the entire length of the doors, cup holders and numerous phone storage areas. The glove box is now damped and like the centre console, can be locked to safely secure valuables when the top is down. An under-floor storage area behind the rear seat provides room to secure small items out of sight. 

Engineered to master the most challenging off-road tracks, with two four-wheel-drive systems are available. The Selec-Trac – on the Sport and Sahara trim levels, and Rock-Trac – standard on the Rubicon trim configuration, the most rugged and capable model for off-road driving. The Selec-Trac is a full-time two-speed transfer case for continuous monitoring and management of the torque sent to the front and rear wheels featured also in the Rock-Trac

Every Wrangler receives a “Trail Rated” badge that proves its legendary 4×4 capabilities. Trail Rated performance is the result of a series of heavy tests performed in the following areas: traction, water fording, manoeuvrability, articulation and ground clearance.

The upgraded 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine delivers 285hp @ 6,400 rpm and 347 Nm of torque @ 4,100 rpm, and now features Stop-Start (ESS) as standard equipment. It was engineered to provide a broad torque band with a focus on low-end torque – an essential trait a vehicle with extreme off-road performance levels such as the Wrangler. 

The new eight-speed automatic transmission enables the vehicle to optimize engine output while on the trails or enjoying smooth, efficient power delivery at highway speeds. Uniquely suited to the requirements of the all-new Wrangler, the new automatic gearbox delivers unmatched off-road capability.

“We are delighted to welcome the all-new Jeep Wrangler 2021, which has been designed to take on even the most challenging off-road courses. It combines authentic Jeep styling, versatility, functionality, and intuitive features with a more stylish and comfortable cabin, thanks to the use of high-quality materials and finishes. We would like to invite our valued customers to visit our showrooms to see the models first-hand,” he added.

In the Sultanate, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, RAM models are available at Dhofar Automotive showrooms with different equipment classes.
