When Jeep first debuted the Wrangler Polar Edition at the Frankfurt Auto Show, it appeared that the model was going to be the latest in a long line of impressive limited editions from the manufacturer. However, recent news points to the fact that the Polar Edition may be getting a wider rollout than previously anticipated.
Coming to America
The brand revealed that it will be bringing the Polar Edition to the U.S., sending it to showrooms across the country. That move should please many fans of extreme off-roading, as this limited automobile is packed with features and characteristics that make it a truly one-of-a-kind off-road vehicle.
Made for some serious adventures, the Polar Edition boasts Trac-Lok anti-spin wheels, impressive heating and climate control, and a 3.6-liter engine that delivers 285 horsepower and 260 foot-pounds of torque.
Even its style is special. With an electric blue paint job, black glossy wheels and a new front grille, the Polar Edition looks just as impressive as it drives. It's also available in a silver metallic color or bright white. It is definitely a more distinct appearance than some Jeep drivers may be used to, but the unique design meshes well with the intended icy setting and will certainly look flashy against a snowy white backdrop.
"Jeep Wrangler is known for its 4x4 capability on any road or trail and in any weather condition," said Mike Manley, president of Jeep. "The new Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition represents a tip of the hat to our loyal Jeep enthusiasts who are also lovers of outdoor winter activities and adventures. This new winter-themed Jeep will get them where they want to go in a fun, new, unique - and very capable - special-edition package."
Kick it up a notch
Although there are a few off-roaders throughout the U.S. who may not be able to take full advantage of the features included in the Polar Edition, plenty of drivers in colder parts of the country will appreciate the amenities.
Despite all of the included extras, there is still a lot of room to make Jeep modifications. The Polar Edition may be primed for the cold, but there are opportunities to make a few upgrades that will have it operating in top shape in all conditions. Whether you're installing a lift kit or adding armor, you can outfit the Polar with the features it will need to be successful at rock crawling or typical recreational off-roading.
