2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - June 17, 2020

Model Preview

The fourth-generation Wrangler arrived in 2018 with the same basic design cues that made this off-road-ready rig a legend over the years but with a handful of tweaks to modernize it. Also earning a redesign was its four-door variant, the Wrangler Unlimited. With these looks still fresh, we expect the 2021 Wrangler Unlimited to arrive as a carryover model.

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited’s redesign was far from shocking, as it took what had long been successful for the model and made just a few tweaks, including making it slightly larger, adding lighter aluminum panels, slightly tweaking the grille, adjusting the wheel flares, and updating its lighting. We expect this look to remain the same in the 2021 Wrangler Unlimited.

Inside, the new-generation Jeep Wrangler Unlimited continued with the model’s flat dashboard setup, but Jeep refined this space with an upmarket steering wheel, revised air vents, more modern HVAC knobs and buttons, and more. This new SUV also gained all the modern tech it had long lacked, including 5-, 7-, and 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment options with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the 7- and 8.4-inch units. We expect the 2021 Wrangler Unlimited to continue with the same design and features inside.

Under its hood, we expect the Wrangler Unlimited to continue with the same engine lineup. This lineup will begin with a standard 3.6-liter V6 that’ll ship 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque through a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional eight-speed automatic. The midrange engine will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Topping the range will be a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 with 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive will be standard on all 2021 Wrangler Unlimited models.

The new-generation Wrangler Unlimited has not been through IIHS testing, but the NHTSA did give is four stars in frontal-crash safety and a scary three-star rollover rating. It also offers advanced safety equipment like optional automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitors. We expect this to remain unchanged in the 2021 Wrangler Unlimited.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is expected to begin production in August of 2020. We anticipate an on-sale date sometime in early fall.

Official pricing is not available yet, but we don’t expect it to stray far from the current model, which ranges from $36,040 to $46,370.

This four-door SUV will compete with the Toyota 4Runner, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Land Rover Discovery Sport.
