Jeep released many special edition models in the past several months. In fact, there was so many that it was easy for a few to fall through the cracks, including a few models that should be given their fair share of the spotlight. One of those is the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition, an off-road vehicle that is sure to please traditionalists who like to embrace the rugged nature of their rides.
Offering an array of excellent features that are ideal for off-roading, this vehicle is primed to become a favorite of heavy-duty drivers.
About the Moab
It's impossible to miss the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition, largely due to its unique paint color. Whether you're looking at the vehicle in vivid Gecko green or a Rock Lobster red, this automobile demands attention. It may be available in more standard shades like black and white, but with all of the extra benefits available with the Moab, you'll likely want to be noticed. Everything meshes well with the black wheels, fender flares and trim, which accents all paint colors nicely while sticking to the rugged vibe.
Although the Moab contains all of the capabilities you've come to expect from Jeep, there are also a few touches that cater the vehicle toward a more high-class crowd. The sleek exterior and extremely comfortable interior are just two of the ways this is accomplished, and with extras like a touchscreen on the center console, there are enough smart advancements to keep all types of drivers interested.
What to expect
Thanks to a few key features, the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition is more than capable of handling itself when off-roading. Several Jeep modifications, such as off-road tires, side rock rails and taillight guards, help to protect the vehicle even when it is being pushed to the limit. However, the Moab doesn't require a lot of fiddling before it can hit the trails. Auto Week reported that the edition is relatively customized as is, and with its special design and extra features, drivers won't have to make many changes to ensure their safety while off-road driving.
Of course, plenty of modifications can still be made. Installing a lift kit, adding armor, installing a front winch or outfitting the vehicle with similar types of off-road accessories is relatively easy to do. You can choose from two- or four-door models, as well as an optional soft canvas top and a soft top lift. You can also purchase the model with anti-spin rear differential, which will increase security on all kinds of steep slopes or slick terrain.
Drawing inspiration from the land
The name of the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition stems from Moab, Utah. This mountainous region is home to some of the coolest off-roading trails in the U.S., and any vehicle that draws its moniker from the space must be well equipped to live up to it.
Much of the Moab area is made up of old mining roads that have since been taken over by 4x4 vehicles. Some of the most challenging courses show off the beauty of the land while also providing plenty of obstacles to overcome - whether it's the solitude, intense rock crawling spots or other trials. Beginners should stick to routes like the Secret Spire and Chicken Corners, while more experienced drivers will enjoy stretches like Pritchett Canyon or Golden Spike. Each of these routes offers a special array of landmarks and challenges, allowing drivers to test their mettle in a unique area.
