Jeep showed up to the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show with a new special edition Wrangler that puts the frost in frostbite. The new Wrangler Arctic takes its inspiration from the rough and frozen terrain of the Arctic, illustrating the type of terrain the Jeep was engineered to tackle. The Wrangler Arctic is available in both Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited versions and will go on sale in the first quarter of 2012 in Europe only.

With a name like Arctic, it was only natural that the special edition Wrangler come in wintry colors: Winter Chill, Bright Silver, and Bright White. The exterior features body color hardtop and fender flares, as well as "Arctic" badges and a Yeti footprint - yeah, that legendary creature in the extreme North - covering the front left fender flares and part of the hood. The model at Frankfurt was covered in the light blue Winter Chill paint finish and was accented with semi-gloss black 17" wheels and original Mopar accessories, which also come standard with the Arctic package.

All Wrangler Arctic models will also get an exclusive interior enhanced by distinctive colors and details. The heated front seats are covered in black Tectonic fabric with Polar White accents, Arctic Orange piping, and accent stitching, as well as an "Arctic" logo on the front seat backs. The steering wheel, armrests, and console lid also benefit from accent stitching, while the door trim and cargo nets are accented in Arctic Orange. The Arctic logo can also be found on tachometer and Mopar tread-pattern slush mats with white "Jeep" lettering complete the Wrangler Arctic package.

European customers will have the chance to choose between the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 petrol engine mated to the automatic five-speed transaxle or a 2.8-liter turbo diesel powertrain paired with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.

I just really hope either that its engine could truly be good enough for this Arctic. Moreover, I also love the sophisticated exterior appearance of it even its spacious interior and with its technology.

Arctic was look so massive on its platform and on its wheels, and I must say that I didn’t expect it to have a luxurious interior. Well, I really love the fact that it is so ideal for an outdoor activity.

I’m impressed with the interior of this outdoor car and even with the muscular appearance of it. I’m just wondering if the Pentastar V-6 petrol of this is just enough for this kind of car.

Jeep Wrangler Arctic look so static in its scheme color, I do like its standard and simple concept. I like its inspired idea of the car.

This little jeep wrangler is simple in their look, but it has a virtuous bumper and wheels. The interior is very simple and nice.
