A new edition of the all-purpose Jeep Wrangler is expected to hit dealerships later this year. Unlike most of its predecessors , though, this one comes with the Moab seal of approval because, well, it’s called the Wrangler Moab Edition.
This Wrangler takes its name from being named after the Moab Easter Safari with a style that alludes itself to possessing style and rugged effectiveness.The steel bumpers are one of the first distinguishable characteristics of the Wrangler Moab Edition. The sculpted hood is also uniquely noticeable as are the rock sliders on the sills, and the number of exterior color options, including Black, White, Gecko, Dozer, Crush, and Rock Lobster.
As far as performance, the Wrangler Moab Edition is powered by the same 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that the rest of the Wrangler line-up comes in. Likewise, a limited-slip rear differential comes as standard for most trims, with the Sport and Sahara models having it as added options. Other standard features that come on the Wrangler Moab Edition include newly contoured seats and trim, a lever for one-handed rear-seat folding, ambient cabin lighting, and a second windshield washer nozzle.
The Wrangler Moab Edition will be available for both the two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited versions. No final word on pricing yet, but expect that to be announced soon leading up to the model’s dealership debut in a few months.
