A research on the Import/Export database reveals that Jeep India has imported petrol variants of the Wrangler Unlimited and the Grand Cherokee for homologation purpose.
The company launched the diesel variants of both the models yesterday. Jeep also claimed that the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee would get petrol options by November 2016.
The data shown on the database indicates that a Wrangler Unlimited petrol was brought in on August 10, and Petrol Grand Cherokee on August 25, 2016.
The records suggest that these models are powered by a 3.6-litre Pentastar VVT V6 engine. In the international market, the Pentastar V6 engine on the Wrangler produces 285bhp and 352Nm of peak torque, while on the Grand Cherokee it is 293bhp.
In India, the Wrangler Unlimited is sold at Rs. 71.59 lakh while the Grand Cherokee range starts at Rs. 93.64 lakh.
Similar to the diesel variants, both the models will be coming to India as Completely Built Units (CBU).
Jeep has also announced its plans to locally assemble models at the FCA production facility in Ranjangaon, Maharashtra, by 2017.
