Moab JL Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to Start at $51,200
Special edition Moab model will be based on the JLU Sahara and feature the Pentastar V6, Rubicon hood, rock rails, and body-color hardtop.
Proof of the JL Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Moab’s existence is looking more and more rock-solid these days (pun intended). Early this month, we told you about the special edition model being spotted on top of a transport truck near FCA‘s headquarters. Now comes news of how much the special edition model will cost. Rumors suggest the pricing for the Wrangler Moab will start at $51,200; add on another $1,495 for the destination charge.
The Wrangler Unlimited Sahara serves as the foundation of the Moab. Underneath the vented Rubicon hood, there’s the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. That’s connected to an eight-speed automatic and the Selec-Trac four-wheel drive system with a limited-slip differential.
The Moab will be available in nine different colors and feature black front and rear tow hooks, a steel front bumper, Mopar rock rails, black 17-inch wheels, keyless entry, and a body-color hard top. The LED Lighting Group will help the Moab see its way down roads and trails.
Inside, it’s equipped with leather seats and more leather on the instrument panel, shift knob, and parking brake handle. An 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation and a nine-speaker audio system provide the infotainment while the Jeep Active Safety Group watches out for the Moab and its occupants with Blind-Spot and Cross-Path Detection and the ParkSense Rear Park-Assist System.
Options include the remote start capability and heated seats/wheel of the Cold Weather Group, the Sky One-Touch Power Top, the Dual Top Group (black Freedom Top three-piece hard top and black Sunrider soft top), and the Trail Rail Management System.
No matter how you feel about this special edition Wrangler, it won’t be the last unique JL. The newest Wrangler model has plenty of lifespan ahead of it – and we have several dressed-up and enhanced JLs to look forward to.
