Jeep Wrangler Rubicon can be the most skilled off-roader, but Wrangler Sahara tends to be the one to choose if you spend most of your time on paved roads. Thanks to its street-oriented tires, less-hanging cabins, and a longer list of creativity needs, it's supposed to be the most fun daily driver in the Wrangler range. If you're the kind of customer who likes Sahara sophistication, but still wanting most of Rubicon's rock-crawling capabilities, Jeep has just announced a new version called Moab Edition.
Moab Edition is a limited edition Wrangler based on the Sahara. It receives Rubicon's hood and shock absorbers, 17-inch Rubicon wheels with 32-inch lamb covers, Rubicon mountain rails, a full-time two-speed transmission and a limited rear differential. The Moab Edition also comes with keyless entry, leather-trimmed seats, a leather-packed dash, an 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, the upgraded 9-speaker Alpine audio system, blind spot monitoring and rear traffic alert. A "Moab" decal and several black accents complete the look.
Jeep says that customers who do not want mountain rails will be able to swap them to Sahara's sidewalk at no cost. However, they must pay to add other available alternatives such as cold packs, towing packages and off-road load management systems.
Unfortunately, Jeep's announcement did not tell when Moab Edition comes to retailer parties. It also does not include price information, although it is probably safe to expect a thousand dollar premium above the Wrangler Sahara Base Price of $ 39,790, including destination.
