Paying homage to its military roots, and also as a tribute to the U.S. Army, Jeep unveiled the Wrangler Freedom Edition. The Jeep brand as we know it started life with the Willys Quad, a small and agile reconnaissance vehicle for the army. Today’s Wrangler is not small or agile, but it’s very very capable – kinda like the U.S. army! The Freedom Edition comes in red, red, white or blue.
Apart from the exterior paint, these model are distinguished by a military-inspired star decal on the hood, and a very cool ‘Oscar Mike’ badge on the fenders. That is military talk for “on the move.”
Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition is priced from $28,165 for Wrangler two-door models and $30,670 for Wrangler Unlimited four-door. Jeep will donate $250 from each Wrangler Freedom Edition it sells to charities that benefit U.S. military members. What’s more, there is also a $500 cash allowance to military members who buy selected Chrysler Group models.
The car is based on the best-selling Sport model, and is available as a two-door Wrangler or four-door Wrangler Unlimited model. Features on the outside include Gray-painted 17-inch alloy wheels borrowed from the Wrangler Rubicon, Mineral Gray-painted grille and front and rear bumper inserts, body-color wheel arches and side steps, black sidesteps with matching black tail lamp guards and a Mopar fuel fill door, and a Sunrider soft top with deep-tint rear windows.
Inside the cabin you get more “Oscar Mike” logo embroidered on the tectonic fabric, 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. Standard features include power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and UConnect infotainment.
