Spring '07 for four-door Jeep Wrangler

12 April 2006

  • Jeep Wrangler to get four doors for first time
  • New car unveiled at New York motor show
  • New Wrangler on sale in UK in March 2007


This is the first-ever Jeep Wrangler to have four doors, and you'll be able to pick one up from next March.

The Wrangler Unlimited was unveiled at the New York Motor Show today. The new cars uses a stretched version of the new two-door Wrangler's chassis. The two-door model also arrives next spring.

The Unlimited is also the first Wrangler to have a diesel engine – Volkswagen's 138bhp 2.0-litre unit. New petrol engines will also be on offer.

Jeep says both of the Wranglers will be more refined than ever on-road, but will retain the impressive off-roading ability for which the name is renowned.

The company has other projects on the boil, too. As well as the seven-seater Commander arriving this summer, the company has two other new, more road-focused products to choose from, called the Patriot and Compass.

Both will go on sale in the US next year, but UK bosses are debating which one to sell in this country.
