After Jeep began its operation in India with the diesel variants of two of its SUVs earlier this year, the American car maker has confirmed that it has imported the petrol variants of two of its SUVs, Wrangler and Grand Cherokee for the final confirmation post the homologation. According to sources, the petrol variants of Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Wrangler, will go up for sale by December 2016.

Under the bonnet of the Grand Cherokee’s petrol variant, there is a powerful Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 engine. The engine is believed to be capable of churning out a maximum power of 285bhp and a peak torque of 353Nm. This power will be transmitted to the wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission gearbox.

On the other hand, the Wrangler SUV will be carrying a similar 3.6-litre V6 petrol motor engine under the bonnet. It is expected to deliver identical power of 285bhp and will churn out a maximum torque of 353Nm. However, this power will be transmitted to the wheels through a 5-speed automatic transmission gearbox, which can be highlighted as the only difference between the two SUVs.

Further, as stated by the officials, the petrol versions of both the SUVs will be priced at a much lower cost than its diesel counterparts. While the Grand Cherokee diesel and Wrangler Unlimited diesel was priced at INR 93.64 lakhs and INR 71.59 lakh respectively (exclusive showroom price in Delhi) at the lime of its launch, it is to be seen how Jeep decides to price these petrol trims. However, there are reports that there would be INR 15 lakhs and INR 18 lakhs slash in the respective price of Grand Cherokee and Wrangler Unlimited petrol versions.
