Jeep is Going to Send Off the JK Wrangler with Special Edition Versions
The JL generation of the Jeep Wrangler won’t come out and officially replace the current version until sometime in the second half of next year (think September), but the beginning of the end of the JK starts this December.
That’s when Jeep will release two of several special edition versions of the current Wrangler. According to Automotive News, “The Wrangler Sport Freedom edition will come with Freedom star hood and rear fender decals, an American flag driver side front fender decal and other interior and exterior badging. It will also feature 18-inch Sahara mid-gloss granite crystal wheels, a new rear heavy-duty cast differential cover, black fuel filter cover and taillamp guards.” The two-door model will cost $30,690; the Unlimited model will go for $34,590. Sales of the Freedom edition will conclude in February.
The Wrangler Sahara Winter edition will come equipped with LED headlamps and fog lamps, standard remote start (for those with an automatic transmission), rock rails, and a standard hard top (body color optional). Like its Freedom edition sibling, it’ll be decorated with plenty of decals (on the hood, driver side fender, and rear fender) as well as other special badges and accents. Expect a price of $37,440 for the two-door Sahara Winter edition, and a price of $41,240 for the Wrangler Unlimited Sahara Winter edition. Both should be in Jeep dealerships until May.
At this point, there aren’t many details about the other JK special editions coming later next year aside from their projected timelines:
- Sport Big Bear edition: February – July
- Sahara Chief edition: March – June
- Sahara Smoky Mountain edition: March – July
- Rubicon Recon edition aka the replacement for the Rubicon Hard Rock: February – September 2017
