US: Chrysler starts building 2011 Wrangler in Ohio
Wrangler line has detail changes for 2011
Chrysler Group earlier this week began building the updated 2011 Jeep Wrangler line at 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited began earlier this week at its Toledo assembly complex in Ohio.
The latest Wrangler has a redesigned interior and Sahara models get a new body colour hard top.
The revamped cabin includes a redesigned instrument panel, new storage areas with improved ergonomics and upgraded materials, lockable console and upgraded door armrests and a new centre console said to be easier to reach and operate. Heated, power mirrors are now available and rear windows are larger.
New steering-wheel controls allow the driver to operate the radio, cruise control, hands-free phone and other vehicle functions while keeping hands on the wheel. A new USB device interface connects to storage devices for use with the vehicle’s media centre, which now includes streaming Bluetooth audio. Twelve-volt accessory outlets have been added and a new 110-volt outlet is optional.
Increased acoustical treatment is said to significantly reduce interior noise. Several new paint colours are offered for the 2011 model year.
