Chrysler Canada: New Wrangler Coming Soon
New Version of the Iconic Wrangler Coming Soon From Jeep®
New 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Feature All-new Interior and Premium, Body-colour , Removable Hard Top
Windsor, Ontario , Aug 20, 2010 -
Jeep® continues to refine the successful Wrangler formula by combining its legendary, benchmark capability with an all-new interior that delivers rich styling with significantly upgraded touch surfaces, occupant comfort and versatility, and a premium appearance courtesy of an all-new body-colour hard top for the popular Sahara model.
"The Jeep Wrangler continues to build on its historic success while retaining its legendary and unmatched performance." said Ed Broadbear, Vice President of Marketing, Chrysler Canada. "The new 2011 Jeep Wrangler comes equipped with an all-new interior that delivers an array of comfort and convenience features. In addition, Sahara models offer a body-colour hard top for customers looking for a Jeep Wrangler with a premium appearance."
New 2011 Jeep Wrangler interior highlights include a completely redesigned instrument panel with bright accents, and new storage areas with improved ergonomics and upgraded materials. A new lockable console and upgraded door armrest areas boast comfortable touch points, while a redesigned centre stack is easier to reach and operate. Heated cloth & leather seats and heated power mirrors are now available. Drivers and passengers will enjoy enhanced visibility courtesy of larger rear windows.
All-new standard steering-wheel controls allow the driver to operate the radio, cruise control, hands-free phone and other vehicle functions while keeping hands on the wheel. A new USB device interface connects to storage devices (thumb drives and most MP3 players) for use with Wrangler's new available Media Centre, which now includes Bluetooth streaming audio; hands-free texting; voice command of the radio and MP3 player and Garmin navigation system. Twelve-volt accessory outlets have been added and a new 115-volt outlet is available to provide power similar to AC outlets in the home.
In line with traditional Jeep design, hex-head bolts are utilized throughout the interior, and are used to mount a “Jeep, Since 1941” inlay onto the new passenger grab handle.
Jeep engineers increased acoustical treatment in the 2011 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, resulting in significantly reduced interior noise.
To provide a more premium appearance, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Sahara models boast an all-new, premium, body-colour hard top.
Several new Jeep Wrangler colours are available for 2011, including Detonator Yellow, Deep Cherry Red, Sahara Tan, Cosmos Blue and Bright White.
The original go-anywhere, do-anything icon now offers the ultimate combination of legendary off-road capability with an all-new premium interior.
Jeep Wrangler sales are up 78 per cent calendar year to date in Canada, including a sales record for the month of July with 1,483 units sold, up 183 per cent versus July 2009. Production of the new 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited began earlier this week at the Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio, USA.
