Rumors Hint at Changes to the 2021 Jeep Wrangler
2021 is going to be an important year for the Jeep Wrangler as Ford rolls out its all-new Bronco competitor. Another key change to the Jeep Wrangler family will be the addition of their upcoming 4xe electrified model. According to a report from Mopar Insiders, other trim levels will be getting upgrades for the 2021 model year.
The publication says its “dealer sources” tell them key change that the Sahara Selec-Trac full-time transfer case will now come standard on Sport models. That transfer case can automatically turn on four-wheel-drive when additional traction is needed. Rubicon models are expected to get a new Rock-Trac transfer case that can automatically turn on four-wheel-drive when required as well. Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon models are rumored to be getting the Forward Facing Camera system found on the Gladiator Rubicon, allowing drivers to better see the trail ahead.
Another cool feature that’s likely to arrive in 2021 models is Selectable Tire Fill-Alerts that will honk the horn when the correct tire pressure is achieved. The Technology Group may become standard on the Wrangler Sport S, including infotainment upgrades like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Rubicon models should see the Off-Road Plus package that’s currently featured on the Gladiator. That package allows higher vehicle speeds with the rear locker engaged and allows drivers to adjust the throttle, transmission shift points, and traction control for performance with the press of a button. There’s no indication of how much pricing may climb as a result of the new features.
