The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Brings the Heat
In a few months, the Jeep Wrangler will face a new form of competition thanks to the arrival of the Ford Bronco. Jeep, confident in its ability to deliver an iconic vehicle that speaks for itself, did not go overboard to outdo the Bronco with unnecessary options and upgrades. That said, the automaker did add a few important new features to its Wrangler lineup that ought to entice prospective buyers. There’s also a new 80th Anniversary trim that celebrates Jeep’s impressive milestone.
Jeep revealed all that’s new on the 2021 Wrangler, including its advanced tech and improved off-road systems. Speaking of tech, those interested in the 2021 Wrangler will be happy to find the new addition of the TrailCam system. What is the TrailCam system? It’s a forward-facing camera situated on the Wrangler’s grille that allows drivers and passengers alike to monitor the road ahead when off-roading via the 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen. TrailCam is accessible via the Wrangler’s Off-Road Pages feature that gives owners important off-roading stats such as altitude, GPS coordinates, pitch, roll, approach angles, drivetrain power distribution, and more.
The TrailCam certainly comes in handy for those neurotic Jeepers who want to double-check a crest ahead before pressing the gas and advancing into the unknown. Another cool addition for the 2021 model year is an Off-Road Plus mode that’s now standard on the Wrangler Rubicon trim. Off-Road Plus adjust throttle, traction control, and transmission shifts when drivers dare to drive on anything that isn’t pavement. Jeep also added two new USB ports, making charging accessible for numerous passengers, as opposed to the single USB port the brand used to offer in the past.
Other perks available on the 2021 Jeep Wrangler include an optional Selec-Trac two-speed transfer case with full-time four-wheel-drive on the Wrangler Sport trim. The Rubicon trim also adds a Rock-Trac 4×4 system to its available features, which gives buyers the option to use full-time four-wheel-drive and a 4:1 ratio. Powertrain options remain unchanged for 2021 as Jeep continues to offer the Wrangler with a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine, while the 2.0-liter turbo-four, 3.6-liter V6 with eTorque mild-hybrid, and 3.0-liter EcoDiesel all make for impressive upgrades. All engines are available on all trims and configurations.
Those who want their 2021 Wrangler to go above and beyond can count on the 80th Anniversary Edition trim to deliver. It’s got Granite Crystal interior accents, a black hardtop, optional leather upholstery, and 18-inch wheels in a matching Granite Crystal finish. Buyers can also find special badges for the occasion, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, and remote start. The two-door Wrangler 80th Anniversary Edition has a starting MSRP of $37,485 (plus destination fee), while the four-door variant starts at $40,985 (plus destination fee).
