The engine uses a number of lightweight components enabling for a significantly lighter engine. This translates into great performance on and off the road. Further, the engine consists of a two-step variable valve timing system combined with eight-holed fuel injectors, this means that the engine is not only refined, but also is efficient and emission friendly. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Petrol 3.6-litre Pentastar gets a 5-Speed automatic transmission and an obvious 4WD system. Other important features on the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Petrol 3.6-litre Pentastar motor keeps it true to its go-anywhere do-anything legacy.

During the launch of the car, Kevin Flynn added, “The excitement and interest in the Jeep Brand is growing and the addition of our Petrol Jeep Wrangler Unlimited broadens our appeal further. In addition, we are actively preparing for the launch of our very first localized Jeep, The Jeep Compass in Q3 of this calendar year.” 2017 really puts Jeep on the Indian map.” With that said, time to start saving folks!
