Just in time for the onslaught of winter, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition will soon be available outside of Europe. Coming to North American showrooms this November after its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Wrangler Polar Edition is fully outfitted with everything a cold-weather enthusiast would need to trek into the frozen abyss.
Perfect for winter driving, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition comes standard with on-board comforts like heated seats, automatic climate control, a body-color hardtop, black 18-inch wheels, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as a comprehensive appearance package. It is available in Hydro Blue as well as Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White paint. There's also a special badge showing the latitude and longitude in Antarctica -- 78 degrees south, 106 degrees east -- where the world's coldest temperature, -128 degrees Fahrenheit, was recorded.
The limited-edition Wrangler is equipped with the same Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 as the standard U.S.-spec 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Paired with either a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission, the V-6 puts out 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition is certainly capable off-road, with the same standard Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential that comes with the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. An electronic locking differential from the Rubicon trim-level is available as well.
Pricing for the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition begins at $33,490 with destination, which is a $4,500 increase from the $28,990 Wrangler Sahara. For those who want two extra doors, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Polar Edition is priced at $37,190 including destination.
