2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition

Following its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, Jeep's new 2014 Wrangler Polar Edition is scheduled to arrive at dealers in Canada and the U.S.A. this month.

The Polar Edition is said to take its inspiration from the severe climate and extreme conditions that characterize the Antarctic region. It was designed to venture into unexplored territories.

Available in either two-door Wrangler or four-door Wrangler Unlimited form, this limited-edition Jeep features a new front grille with black accents, body-colour hardtop, 18-inch polished gloss black alloy wheels and polar white interior accents.

Based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara, it also includes a powerdome hood, deep-tint sunscreen glass and a unique, three-color hood decal, featuring the outline of mountains, and the black fuel-filler door from Mopar.

A "Polar" badge, located on the vehicle’s side next to the front fender flares, exhibits the 78-degree South and 106-degree East coordinates of Vostok in Antarctica – the point where the lowest ever temperature in the world was recorded, -89.2 degrees Celsius.

The interior features black heated leather seats enhanced by Pearl White accent stitching and "Polar" logo embroidered on the upper portion of the backrests.

Standard equipment also includes a black leather-wrapped steering wheel with pearl white stitching and the passenger-side grab bar and vent rings are finished in high-gloss ceramic white to create the contrasting effect of the light on Antarctic glaciers.


It also features an all-new cluster overlay with similarly painted rings, surrounding a blue instrument background with "Polar" logo. Mopar tread-pattern slush mats complete the interior appointments..

Available exterior paint colours include an all-new Hydro Blue, Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White.

The Jeep Wrangler Polar is equipped with a Dana 30 front axle and Dana 44 rear axle, as well as standard Command-Trac NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio.

It also comes standard with a Trac-Lok anti-spin rear differential with an available electronic locking differential.

Other standard equipment includes automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated controls, heated front seats, height-adjustable driver seat, Electronic Vehicle Information Centre (EVIC) and cruise control.

Power comes from a Pentastar 3.6-litre V-6 engine that delivers 285 hp and 260lb-ft of torque, paired to a standard six-speed manual or an available five-speed automatic transmission.
