Last week, we introduced the 2013 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, which debuted as a concept vehicle for the 2012 Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Here’s another special vehicle that also began as a concept for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, but with a twist – it actually bears the region’s name. For good reason – the vehicle is as rugged and versatile as the rocky, red region itself. Introducing the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab Special Edition.
Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand says that the Wrangler Moab Special Edition model “take(s) our legendary Jeep capability to new heights, offering even more off-road features and performance…” such as winch-ready steel bumpers, upgraded rock rails, and an available rear-locker.
