• 2020 Jeep Wrangler Protest Edition By Chelsea Truck Company

It comes with changes on the outside and inside, but nothing is different under the hood

Chelsea Truck Company has returned with another Jeep Wrangler rendition called the Protest Edition. Although the name could be considered slightly controversial, the changes made to the SUV are pretty neat. Nothing under the hood has been changed and it is stock, which means all the changes are cosmetic only. This Wrangler is a right-hand-drive model and is brand-new, unlike some of the examples from Chelsea lately that have had previous owners.

What Makes This Edition Special?

On the outside, the 2020 Wrangler is painted in black. Up front, it features an exposed carbon fiber four-slot Herringbone design Blackhawk grille with 3-D mesh. Interestingly, this grille can fit onto any new Jeep Wrangler. The hood is vented to let the engine breathe comfortably. The SUV even comes with LED headlights and Daytime Running Lights.

The Wrangler rides on 20-inch 1986 Jeep black wheels wrapped in Cooper Discoverer All-Terrain AT/3 tires. The calipers are painted as well. The company has installed a Chelsea Truck Company branded fuel filler cap, too. There’s a quad exhaust system with 100 mm tailpipes peeping at the rear. To top of the changes, the tailgate-mounted tire receives a spare wheel cover. The housing here incorporates a rearview camera as well.

The black theme of this Jeep Wrangler can be seen inside the cabin as well. The front and rear seats are reupholstered in quilted and perforated leather. The same treatment is present on the center glove box and the door armrests, too. A Chelsea identification plate is present as part of the package. To make the deal sweeter, there are things like vented pedals finished in machined aluminum, stainless steel door entry sill plates, mud flaps, etc. Apart from this, the standard set of features include:

  • Climate control
  • Cruise control
  • Parkview rear backup camera
  • USB port
  • Automatic headlights
  • Hill descent control and start assist
  • Electronic stability control
  • Active Speed Limit Assist
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Deep tint sunscreen glass
  • ISOFIX child seat preparation
  • Satellite Navigation with Apple Car Play

What Powers This Beast?

This 2020 right-hand-drive Jeep Wrangler comes with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine under the hood that dishes out 272 ponies and 295 pound-feet of twist.

Power is sent to all the wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Chelsea hasn’t mentioned it specifically, but we believe it is a Wrangler Sahara, given that its previous builds were based on the Sahara trim. As per the price quoted it seems a little unlikely, but if it is a Sahara indeed, then it features a Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system instead of Rubicon’s Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system. It has a 2.72:1 low range that is quite helpful when rock crawling. It can even tow up to 5,500 pounds.

Engine 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged
Horsepower 272 HP
Torque 295 LB-FT
Transmission eight-speed automatic
Towing capacity 5,500 lbs
