There is finally a ray of hope for all of us who have been waiting for the Wrangler to arrive in India. Jeep India’s own website has just gone live. But donâ€™t get too excited just yet. The website does not yet feature any specific models or prices or even specifications. For now, there’s just a smallÂ glimpseÂ ofÂ the history of the brand andÂ images of theÂ Grand Cherokee and Wrangler Unlimited.
We already know that the Jeep range will be displayed at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi in February. This could also mean that a launch of the brand in the country is just around the corner. The models that will first make it here are the Grand Cherokee and the Wranglers. We have already driven both the cars in 2013 and came back impressed with the Wrangler especially (Read ourÂ review of the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Grand Cherokee). There have been no updates to the lineup since then and this means the models that arrive in India areÂ very likely to be of the same spec that we drove back then.
Looking back, there were strong rumours of the brand arriving here ahead of the last Auto Expo, but thank to the financial crunch that Fiat-Chrysler went into around the same time, that planÂ was postponed. It seems that the time has finally come for the launch, especially since weâ€™ve been spotting test cars running around Indian roads of late. Weâ€™ve got our fingers crossed.
