A new limited-edition, customised Wrangler Polar model will be revealed on the Jeep stand in Frankfurt in the four-door Wrangler Unlimited configuration, boasting an all-new Hydro Blue exterior color matched to a Black interior.
Jeep Wrangler Polar takes its cue from the severe climate and extreme conditions that characterise the Antarctic region. The “Polar” badge located on the vehicle’s side next to the front fender flares shows off the 78° S and 106° E coordinates that correspond to the location of Vostok in Antarctica: the exact point where the absolute severest temperature in the world was recorded at -89.2° C (-128.56° F).
Featuring exclusive styling cues, 18″ Gloss Black alloy wheels, body-color hardtop and Mopar accessories, the new Jeep Wrangler Polar will be available in Europe in the first quarter of 2014, in both two- and four-door versions, powered by the 2.8-litre turbo diesel or the 3.6-litre petrol engine.
Engineered to take on the most challenging off-road trails, Jeep Wrangler Polar is equipped with the Dana 30 front axle and powerful Dana 44 rear axle. 4×4 capability is achieved through the standard Command-Trac NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. And, in order to handle any off-road track in utmost safety, the new Wrangler Polar model comes standard with the Trac-Lok anti-spin rear differential.
The standard equipment includes automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated controls, heated front seats, height-adjustable driver seat, Electronic Vehicle Information Centre (EVIC) and cruise control. Optional, it can be equipped with the Dual Top configuration (soft top/ hard top) and Polar Pack 1 special package offering front side air bags, UConnect with 6.5-inch touchscreen, 40-gigabyte hard disk, USB compatibility, AUX port, DVD player and navigation system.
