New interior, colour options and steering wheel controls for 2011 Wranglers
29 September 2010

Chrysler has given a facelift to the Jeep Wrangler, including extensive improvements to the interior and additional standard equipment.

The new 2011 Jeep Wrangler interior has been given upgraded materials, a redesigned instrument panel and new storage areas.

The steering wheel now has controls for the radio, cruise control, hands-free phone and other vehicle functions. There is a new lockable console and the centre stack has been redesigned to be easier to reach and operate.

Heated, powered mirrors are now available and visibility has been improved courtesy of larger rear windows.

The car’s entertainment system has also been upgraded with USB and bluetooth connectivity. Twelve-volt accessory outlets and a new 110-volt outlet have also been added.

The Wrangler’s acoustics have also been improved and Chrysler claims this has resulted in significantly reduced interior noise.

There are several new colours available for 2011 including Detonator Yellow, Sahara Tan, Cosmos Blue and Deep Cherry Red, and the Wrangler Unlimited Sahara models will be given a body-coloured hard-top.

Production began earlier this week at the Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio.

is this for the uk market aswell? if so seems a bit bizarre to upgrade such a slow selling model! especially when everytime i have looked at the chrysler,dodge,jeep websites yet another model has suddenly disappeared from the line up!

I was clicking through the photos, preparing myself for the horror of the interior and in the end it doesn't look too bad. It'll all hinge on the quality of the plastics but from the evidence so far, it looks like a step forward.

[quote Lord Snooty]If it is then someone at Chrysler needs to know that a 110 volt socket isn't of much use to us.[/quote] There was a short time a while ago when all outdoors equipment (power tools on building sites etc) were supposed to be 110V. It was revoked as it was very hard to implent and a lot of people were upset.

It will be coming to the UK I imagine. The wrangler is sold here, and it serves as sort of a Halo vehicle like the defender does for Land Rover even if they dont sell tons of them. Its always interesting to have a sit in the Wrangler if you go to a Chrysler showroom, you cant help but smile!

If I had enough money and access to some off road area, I would love to get a wrangler. Stick a winch on it and its virtually unstoppable.

Fiat and Chrysler apparently have some ambitious plans for the Jeep brand and the entire range will have been overhauled by next year.
