Jeep is Fiat Chrysler’s cash cow, so we’re about to see several new models roll out from the brand. The latest is the Wrangler Moab Edition. It builds off the Sahara, which is more luxurious and not as trail-oriented as the Rubicon.
Among the additional equipment slapped on the Moab Edition are the hood, rock rails, and steel bumpers from the Rubicon model. It rolls on 32-inch mud-terrain tires wrapped around 17-inch Rubicon wheels that are painted Low-Gloss Black. LED headlights and taillights come standard as well, which are great if you actually take this thing on a trail at night. Standard Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case is also great for trail runs. You can opt for Sahara side steps instead of the Rubicon rock rails at no additional cost.
A few strictly appearance items also will set the Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition apart, namely the Moab decal on the hood. Low-Gloss Black is applied to the grille throats, headlight surrounds, and tow hooks, for that aggressive look everyone seems to love.
The Moab Edition will still have a posh interior, including leather seats and dashboard, blindspot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, navigation, and a 9-speaker Alpine sound system. Seat heaters, a heated steering wheel, remote start, and the Trail Rail cargo management system are all optional.
It’s no coincidence this Wrangler wears the name of the little city in Utah. Jeep fans flock there every year for the Easter Jeep Safari.
To be clear, the Moab Edition will only be offered in limited scope. That means for now it won’t be a permanent member of the Wrangler family. Yes, go out and grab yours now, which is exactly FCA’s plan.
