Kingston Industrial Garage (KIG) has debuted the Next Generation Jeep Wrangler JL from Chrysler.
The Jeep Wrangler JL is the 4th rendition of the vehicle available in 2-door (Wrangler) and 4-door (Wrangler Unlimited) models.
The launch occurred at the breezy Kingston waterfront on Aug 30.
“It comes with a 2-litre Turbo engine with high torque so crawling, climbing, and going over objects are easy for this vehicle once it is in 4×4 mode. The handling, the aerodynamic and the comfort of the ride are greatly improved,” KIG’s Jeep Brand Manager Matthew Mahadeo told BUZZ.
The vehicle, which retails for around $10 million, is available in gas and diesel renditions. All Wrangler models are Trail Rated with a badge indicating that the vehicle is designed to perform in a variety of challenging off-road conditions identified by five key consumer-oriented performance categories: traction, ground clearance, manoeuvreability, articulation and water fording.
Avid surfer Brandon Cowan is the first person in Jamaica to own a Jeep Wrangler JL. He said he is now able to access beaches he would normally have trouble entering with other vehicles.
“It is everything you want for summer and a day-to-day vehicle if you are a businessman, who want to go to a meeting or you just want to go to the beach,” Cowan said.
