Philippines as Auto Nation Group, the official distributor of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM vehicles in the country, has recenty unveiled the All-New Generation Wrangler. It is known to be Jeep’s most capable SUV and the embodiment of the iconic American brand. As much as it is an icon, Jeep has made sure to put in technologies that make it the best off-roader out of the showroom for 2019.
“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 Wrangler’s profile is unmistakable with the iconic 7-slot grille, paying homage to the Jeep CJ, which displays both outer grilles intersecting the round head lamps. 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.
The all-new Wrangler comes with a new engine option with the fuel-efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with Engine Stop-Start (ESS). This 284 bhp engine is ready to provide you with power and will deliver up to 295 lb ft of torque. It now also comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, allowing both a strong off-road presence and a tame on-road behavior.
“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.
