With a deep history that reaches back to the 1940s and the Second World War, the Wrangler remains Jeep’s most capable and famous off-road model. Now, the Detroit automaker has chosen the Wrangler to pay tribute to U.S. military members past and present with a special version named Freedom Edition.
Jeep says it will donate $250 (€198) from each Wrangler Freedom Edition it sells to charities that benefit U.S. military members, evenly splitting the funds between the Fisher House and the I Support foundations.
The Freedom Edition is offered as a two-door Wrangler or four-door Wrangler Unlimited in these three shades: Deep Cherry Red, Bright White, and a new exclusive hue to this model named True Blue.
Special features include a military-inspired star decal on the hood and rear quarter panels, together with an “Oscar Mike” (military jargon for “on the move”) fender badge, Mineral Gray-painted 17-inch alloy wheels, grille and front and rear bumper inserts, body-colored wheel arches and side steps, Mopar fuel fill door, and a Sunrider soft top with deep-tint rear windows.
In the interior, the Freedom Edition gets black seats with rugged tectonic fabric, an “Oscar Mike” logo embroidered on the seat backs in silver stitching, French Silver accent stitching on the steering wheel, doors, seats and front arm rest, and “Quick Silver” accents on the front passenger grab handle, door pulls and dash vent rings.
Other touches include Satin Chrome spokes on the leather-wrapped steering wheel and Mopar Slush Mats.
The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom edition starts at $28,165 for the two-door models and $30,670 for four-door models.
