Today, the pre-launch of Jeep Website for India, www.jeep-india.com has happened with the Grand Cherokee and the Wrangler variants occupying the site’s space.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles India has announced back in 2012 that it will bring Jeep vehicles to India along with Abarth brand, but later they announced the plan would be delayed due to lack of market in India.
Then, in 2014, FCA launched the Abarth brand and has now launched Jeep. It seems FCA would bring both diesel and petrol variants to India. The SRT Grand Cherokee has a 475hp 6.4 litre v8 engine, making it as one of the most powerful SUVs in India.
Speaking on the occasion Kevin Flynn, President and Managing Director, FCA India, said, “It gives us immense pride to launch this iconic Jeep brand in India. Today, FCA embarks on a new expedition in the Indian market and we hope this significant milestone will help us to firmly establish Jeep in India right from the start.”
“The new Jeep brand positioning on the website reflects an ambition to expand the marque’s global footprint while staying true to its legacy. Stay tuned to experience more about this exciting brand’s arrival in India in the coming months.”
Both vehicles will take their place at the Auto Expo 2016 allowing us to understand better about the Indian-specific variant, which is currently under development phase.
