    Automotive group Chrysler has shown off what new features will be incorporated into the 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited models, which include a completely overhauled and technologically updated interior.

    One of the best features included in most minivans has made its way to the Jeep line - built-in radio controls from the steering wheel. The new wheel console also allows drivers to operate a connect cell phone.

    The dashboard has been updated with a USB interface and a specific port for 12-volt power devices. Production of the new models is currently underway.

    "While retaining unmatched, legendary capability, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler boasts an all-new interior that delivers a host of comfort, convenience and versatility features," said Jeep CEO Mike Manley.

    In addition to the interior updates, the new Jeeps also pack in a removable hardtop cover and an updated color selection.

    It can't help but seem like a potential over-domestication of the Jeep brand, but the bare-bones rugged vehicle can't relly survive in this market. Besides, the new features should be a welcome addition for those who like the idea of a more compact vehicle with more frills available.

    Expect to start seeing them in your local showroom soon.
