Carpoint is reporting that Jeep will sell the new four door Wrangler in Australia.
Jeep is set to launch a four-door version of its Wrangler SUV. And it’s certain the new ‘old’ foubie is coming Down Under.
The next-generation two-door Wrangler was unveiled at JanuaryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Detroit motor show, but what the company hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t revealed yet is the final four-door version of the off-road icon. However, CarPoint’s sources within Chrysler Jeep Australia have confirmed the existence of the production version and the last quarter 2006 arrival of the vehicle.
Not to be confused with the new seven-seat full-size Commander, the four-door five-seater will be built on a stretched (400mm) version of the TK platform.
The vehicleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s styling will be influenced by the Jeep Rescue concept vehicle (pictured) that appeared at the 2004 Detroit show. That said, insiders say the Wrangler four-door wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be quite as large as the Rescue, which was based on the Commander’s full-size chassis.
Although the latest-gen Wrangler is said to be an all-new design, JeepÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s boffins havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t strayed too far from the basic formula. Its rivals may have plumped for more contemporary independent suspension set-ups in their SUVs, but the Wrangler sticks with tried and proven solid axles — both front and rear. And yes, soft-top versions will be available in two and four-doors.
