So we can actually expect some competitive prices
Wow, that's great news. Sounds almost too good to be true.

I hope we find out soon and this doesn't get delayed even more.

More leaks. I'm surprised they're testing the 2 door. And it looks like it might be a Rubicon EU spec, despite what the article says.

Spotted what looks like the Rubicon variant a few days back on my way to Mahabaleshwar. This was in Pune. Damn thing was moving F-A-S-T.

Wow two Rubicons and a Sahara! What a time to be alive.

Were the Rubicons both two door or did you see any four door Rubis?

Thanks for sharing! For all it's off-road prowess, what's with the ugly looking front bumper which also drastically reduces the approach angle?!

Expect similar design of the new Thar as well.

This has more to do with pedestrian safety than just design. Crumple zone in the bumper in order to prevent leg breakage and pedestrian slipping under the vehicle.

We're getting the lame Euro bumper here. It doesn't have tow hooks, and includes these weird wheel well covers.

Fortunately it should be pretty easy to buy and swap out with the American bumper.

"Team OVERDRIVE recently reported that the two-door variant of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited was spotted in its Sahara trim in Pune. New spy shots reveal that the company is also readying a four-door variant of the same. The spotted SUV was the all-new JL generation 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, that internationally sits below the Rubicon trim - the highest trim."

And the leaks keep coming. 2 door Rubicons and 4 door Saharas. We still haven't seen a 4 door Rubicon being tested though.

We also haven't seen any soft tops. I wonder how safe they'd be in India.

Just got to know that the wrangler would be launched on the evening of 9th Aug and the showrooms have started sending out the invites to the existing customers.
