Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition introduced in the USA

By Tristan Tancredi, 04 Sep 2018 News

Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition introduced USA news

Limited-edition Wrangler Moab unveiled, but it’s not coming here.

FCA has unleashed the Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition in the USA, a limited-edition model based on the all-new Wrangler Sahara.

The base vehicle is then pumped full of features and trick componentry: a Rubicon hood; Rubicon steel bumpers with removable end caps; 32-inch muddies; and LEDs fore and aft.

Moab decal is plastered on the hood, while the headlight surrounds, grille throats, tow hooks and 17-inch Rubicon wheels are coated in low-gloss black paint.

The Moab comes standard with Rubicon side rails; however, Sahara side steps are a no-cost option.

A Pentastar V6 unit – the same engine used right across the Wrangler range – resides beneath the vented hood. A Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case and a Trac-Lok limited-slip rear diff are also standard fare.

Safety kit extends to blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection and a ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines.

Add a bit more money to the credit card and you can fetch a Trailer Tow and Trail Rail cargo management system, available as an optional extra.

Why Moab? Well, the Moab nameplate pays homage to Jeep’s long-running partnership with the famous Easter Jeep Safari, which is held annually in – you guessed it – Moab, Utah.
