New Jeep Wrangler 2021 pricing and spec detailed: Cheaper entry point, diesel ditched for refreshed Suzuki Jimny and Land Rover Defender rival

The point of entry to Jeep’s Wrangler range is now just under $52,000 BOCs, $7500 more affordable than before.

Jeep has lowered the point of entry to its Wrangler SUV range by $7500 with the introduction of a new Sport S variant priced at $51,950 before on-road costs.

The rollout of the Sport S grade also heralds a line-wide 2021 update for the Wrangler, which also sees the debut of the Unlimited Night Eagle variant and the discontinuation of the flagship Unlimited Rubicon Diesel – the only oil-burner in the range.

CarsGuide understands the 147kW/450Nm 2.2-litre turbo-diesel Rubicon has been removed due to a production changeover to the newer 194kW/599Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 – offered in the overseas Gladiator – that is not made available in right-hand-drive markets.

As previously mentioned, the Wrangler line-up now kicks off with the three-door Sport S, while the Overland version jumps up $2000 to $61,450 for the 2021 model year.

The new $60,950 Unlimited Night Eagle is now the cheapest five-door Wrangler, usurping the Unlimited Overland that is priced at $65,950 (+$2000).

With the removal of the $70,950 Unlimited Rubicon Diesel, the petrol version is now the Wrangler flagship at $67,450 (+$2000).

All 2021 Wranglers are powered by a 3.6-litre Pentastar petrol V6, outputting 209kW/347Nm, and send drive to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Standard equipment on the 2021 Wrangler includes a 7.0-inch Uconnect multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, 7.0-inch driver display, three-piece hardtop in black, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, keyless entry, and LED head- and tail-lights.

Jeep’s Selectable Tyre Fill Alert (STFA) will also make its way from the Gladiator ute to the Wrangler range, which sounds an alert with tyre pressure hits a predetermined point.

Safety-wise, the Sport S scores forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitor, automatic headlights, rear cross-traffic alert and reversing camera.

Options available on the Sport S include the Comfort & Sound pack ($3500) and Off-Road pack ($1950), the former adding a larger 8.4-inch multimedia touchscreen, nine-speaker sound system, remote start and hard-top headliner, while the latter bundles 17-inch wheels, anti-spin differential rear axle and all-weather floor mats.

The five-door Unlimited Night Eagle boasts the Comfort & Sound pack as standard, on-top of the gear included in the Sport S, but also scores a number of blacked out components such as cloth seats, foglamp bezels, grille surround, headlight inserts and 17-inch wheels.

Stepping up to the three- or five-door Overland will net buyers leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats and steering wheel, body-coloured fender flares and hardtop, chrome grille and mirror caps, hard spare tyre cover, and 18-inch wheels.

The Unlimited Overland also scores a Trail Rail Cargo Management System as standard, and the option for a one-touch folding canvas roof for $4950.

The top-spec Unlimited Rubicon adds a Rock-Trac Active On-Demand 4x4 System with low-range 4WD mode, and Rock and Sand driving modes, as well as locking front and rear differentials, electronic front sway bar disconnect, rock sliders, variant-specific decals, and 17-inch wheels wrapped in off-road rubber.

However, the Rubicon also loses the leather seats, body-coloured fender flares, heated seats/steering wheel, and Trail Rail Management system found in the Overland, though these items can be optioned back in with the $1950 Luxury pack.

The Rubicon can also be more even more off-road focussed with the $1850 Trail-Ready pack that adds a steel front bumper and integrated forward-facing off-road camera.

Premium paint is available across the 2021 Wrangler range for $745.
