Building on the success of several recent special-edition vehicles, the Jeep is introducing its latest models: the new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Arctic and Jeep Liberty Arctic.
The rugged, extreme winter conditions of the arctic are the inspiration for these latest Jeep models. With winter temperatures that can reach -50 degrees Fahrenheit, and wind speeds that can exceed 100 miles per hour, the arctic is well known as one of the most intense climates on Earth.
Based on the Wrangler Sahara model, the Arctic’s winter theme is immediately recognizable. Available colors are Winter Chill, Bright Silver, and Bright White. Exterior features include a body-color hardtop and fender flares, “Arctic” badges on the front fenders, a “Yeti Footprint” decal over part of the driver’s side fender and hood, black hood decal, and Mopar black fuel filler door and taillamp guards. Jeep Wrangler Arctic also offers an aggressive Wrangler Rubicon tire and wheel package, with unique semi-gloss black 17-inch wheels shod with 32-inch tires.
Inside, Wrangler Arctic’s seats are black Tectonic fabric with Polar White accents and orange piping and accent stitching. Front seats are heated and feature an “Arctic” logo in the seat back. Accent stitching can also be found on the steering wheel, arm rest, and console lid. Door trim and nets are accented in orange, and all grab handles and dashboard vent rings are finished in Polar White trim. Mopar tread pattern slush mats with white “Jeep” lettering complete the Wrangler Arctic package.
