Jeep Pulls the Wraps Off the Wrangler Moab Edition: A Sahara on Steroids [News]

2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition

After weeks of spy shots and discussion, Jeep has lifted the wraps off the Wrangler Moab Edition.

There’s a middle ground somewhere between the street-biased Sahara and the off-road focused Rubicon. Take some parts from the Rubicon and bolt them on the Sahara, and you end up with this: the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition.

Starting with the 17-inch Low-Gloss Black aluminum wheels, Jeep added 32-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrains to create the Wrangler Moab Edition. On top of that, it also has a Rubicon hood with a unique “Moab” decal, rock rails, and steel bumpers. While the body-color hard top comes standard, Jeep painted the grille throats and headlight surrounds in Low-Gloss Black to match the wheels. Customers can also spec the Dual Top Group or get the Sky One-Touch power top, should they choose.

On the inside, the Wranger Moab edition gets the Sahara’s Leather Interior Group. For that, you get leather seats and a leather-wrapped dashboard with contrast stitching. The car also includes the Safety Group, which adds blind spot monitoring, Rear Cross-Path detection and a ParkView rearview camera. Other standard features on the Wranger Moab Edition are a Trac-Lok limited-slip differential, 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment screen and a nine-speaker Alpine stereo system.

Optional equipment

Other utility features Jeep offers on the Wrangler Moab Edition as options include the Cold Weather Group, which adds heated seats and steering wheel, as well as remote start. The Trailer Tow and Trail Rail cargo management system are also available as options.

Jeep hasn’t officially announced pricing for the Wrangler Moab Edition yet. However, an earlier post from JLWranglerForums suggests it will start around $51,200. The Wrangler Moab Edition will be available with the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
