Available in two-door soft-top Sport and four-door Unlimited body styles, the Jeep Wrangler Overland is teamed exclusively with the brand’s 209kW/347Nm 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine and five-speed automatic transmission.
Priced from $42,500 and $47,000 respectively, the Wrangler Overland variants are between $8500-$9000 more than the entry-level models on which they’re based.
The extra outlay adds 18-inch polished ‘sparkle’ alloy wheels, body-coloured wheel arches and three-piece hardtop roof, black Sunrider soft-top and automatic headlights to the outside, along with an enhanced infotainment system with satellite navigation, reversing camera, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and bright trim accents to the cabin.
The Wrangler Overland is now in showrooms, with Jeep Australia looking to boost its appeal in the new year.
The Wrangler is the only model in Jeep’s local line-up not to experience growth in 2012. Sales fell 4.1 per cent to 2336 to the end of November, while its share of the large SUV segment has fallen from 3.1 per cent in 2011 to 2.5 per cent.
