Chrysler released today the first images and info of the new 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. As expected, the new car will introduce a revised design as well as a new interior delivering upgraded touch surfaces for the driver and other occupants.
It appears that this car keeps getting better, and will show a premium appearance thanks to the all new body-colour hard top for the popular Sahara model.
Some of the improvements for the interior include the redesign instrument panel as well as new storage areas, but also a redesigned center stack, lockable console and upgraded door armrest.
Furthermore, a redesigned steering wheel will allow the driver of the car to operate radio, cruise control, hands-free phone and other vehicle functions while keeping hands on the wheel while the USB device interface will allow him to connect connects to storage devices such as thumb drives and most MP3 players. A 110-volt outlet will also be available in order to provide power similar to AC outlets in the home.
The biggest improvement for the interior is the new acoustical treatment, which reduces the interior noise.
For 2011, Chrysler also introduced new colors, such as including Detonator Yellow, Deep Cherry Red, Sahara Tan, Cosmos Blue and Bright White. Production of the new 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited already began earlier this week at the Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio.
In 2011, Chrysler Group LLC unveiled a redesigned interior for the 2011 model-year Jeep Wrangler. Jeep Brand President and CEO, Mike Manley, stated during the 2011 Jeep Wrangler’s release that the new version will offer a near “legendary” capability that, when paired with excellent features for comfort and convenience, will bring about a driving experience for owners that’s unmatched by previous versions and other vehicles in the Jeep Wrangler’s class.
For customers looking for a more premium offering, the company also debuted Sahara versions of the Wrangler that boast of new finishes for the hard top and body. Despite the changes, Jeep still made it a point to incorporate nods to the traditional elements of design in older Jeep vehicles.
These include the use of hex-head bolts, and the integration of a “Jeep, Since 1941” inlay on the passenger grab handle. Improved acoustics also result to reduced noise inside the cabin of the 2011 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited.
The 2011 models also introduced new colors for the body for the model-year, including Deep Cherry Red, Sahara Tan, Bright White and Cosmos Blue.
These new colors can give fans that premium appearance that they are looking for from the Wranglers. Wrangler’s Toledo, Ohio plant handled responsibility for the manufacturing and production of the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Models for the 2011 model-year.
