Jeep India product launch preponed to August 30

Jeep India has preponed the launch of their SUVs to August 30 from September 1. On this day, the carmaker will announce the models' variant-wise pricing and open bookings for these upcoming vehicles.

Jeep's Indian product line-up includes the Wrangler Unlimited, the Grand Cherokee and the SRT. The more humble (yet monstrous) Wrangler Unlimited will be the brand's entry-level model in India. Globally, it comes powered by a 3.6-litre V6 24-Valve DOHC VVT petrol engine. However, the India-spec model will get a less powerful 2.8-litre diesel unit pumping out 197bhp of power and 460Nm of torque. Also, the Indian market won't get the iconic three-door Wrangler, but it will be the four-door model.

The standard Grand Cherokee is powered by a 3.0-litre turbo diesel mill that produces 240bhp. If that isn't good enough for you, Jeep also has something bigger under the hood of the Grand Cherokee. This is in the form of the SRT, which employs a 6.4-litre V8 motor to churn out 470bhp of power. It will be the largest engined car one can buy in India then!

Jeep, the legendary American brand, has already delayed its presence in India by three years now. Finally, the Jeep SUVs will go on sale in our country onAugust 30. While the Wrangler will serve as a niche product, the Grand Cherokee will go up against the Mercedes-Benz GLE, BMW X5, Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90.
