Article by Christian Andrei, on November 11, 2013

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition will arrive in showrooms in North America this month just in time for winter. The Wrangler Polar Edition, which debuted at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, is fitted with all the equipment necessary for cold weather. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition has the following equipment as standard: heated seats, automatic climate control, a body-color hardtop, a set of black 18-inch wheels, and a leather-covered steering wheel.

It also comes with a comprehensive package to enhance its looks. Customers can ask that this vehicle get Hydro Blue, Billet Silver Metallic, or Bright White paint. It has a special badge that indicates Antarctica’s latitude and longitude, which is 78 degrees south, 106 degrees east. Incidentally, this is where the world’s coldest temperature (-128 degrees) Fahrenheit, was observed.

This limited-edition Wrangler is equipped with the same Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 as the standard U.S.-spec 2014 Jeep Wrangler. When mated to either a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission, the V-6 has an output of 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. If you plan to go off-road with the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition, don’t worry as it’s perfectly capable of doing so.

It comes with the same standard Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential that is offered with the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Buyers can also opt for an electronic locking differential from the Rubicon trim-level.

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition is priced from $33,490 (including destination costs), making it $4,500 more expensive than the $28,990 Wrangler Sahara. To those who want the two additional doors, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Polar Edition has a price tag of $37,190 (including destination charges).

Just in Time for Winter: Jeep Introduces New 2014 Wrangler Polar Edition for North American Market

Jeep® Wrangler is legendary for its go-anywhere capability, no matter what challenges the weather or seasons may bring. To celebrate the upcoming winter season, the Jeep brand is bringing its new Wrangler Polar Edition, which made its debut at last month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, to U.S. showrooms in November.

“Jeep Wrangler is known for its 4x4 capability on any road or trail and in any weather condition,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO - Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “The new Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition represents a tip of the hat to our loyal Jeep enthusiasts who are also lovers of outdoor winter activities and adventures. This new winter-themed Jeep will get them where they want to go, in a fun, new, unique – and very capable – special-edition package.”

The new 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition takes inspiration from the severe climate and extreme conditions that characterize the Antarctic region. Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition was designed to express the freedom of going beyond the known limits to venture into unexplored territories: an experience that only Wrangler enthusiasts can enjoy, thanks to the reliability and safety granted by a vehicle featuring benchmark technology and unmatched off-road capability. With its hostile routes and severe climate, the Antarctic region offers the driving conditions that the iconic Jeep Wrangler was engineered to conquer.

The "Polar" badge, located on the vehicle’s side next to the front fender flares, exhibits the 78° S and 106° E coordinates that correspond to the location of Vostok in Antarctica: the exact point where the absolute severest temperature in the world was recorded at -128.56° F (-89.2° C).

Featuring exclusive styling cues, 18-inch Gloss Black alloy wheels, and a body-color hardtop, the new Jeep Wrangler Polar will be available in both two- and four-door Unlimited versions. Based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara, the exterior of the new Wrangler Polar Edition boasts unique features such as the new front grille, Powerdome hood and the body-color hardtop with deep-tint sunscreen glass. A Gloss Black Jeep logo above the front grille and Gloss Black 18" alloy wheels enhance the distinctive look of the vehicle. Completing the exterior appointment of the new Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition is the unique, three-color hood decal, featuring the outline of mountains, and the black fuel-filler door from Mopar.

The interior features Black heated leather seats enhanced by Pearl White accent stitching and “Polar” logo embroidered on the upper portion of the backrests. Standard equipment also includes a black leather-wrapped steering wheel with Pearl White stitching and high-gloss Ceramic White painted bezels. Pearl White accent stitching is found also on the door armrests and center console lid. The passenger-side dashboard grab bar and dashboard vent rings are finished in high-gloss Ceramic White to create the contrasting effect of the light on Antarctic glaciers.

The exclusive cabin of the Jeep Wrangler Polar special edition also features an all-new cluster overlay with rings painted high-gloss Ceramic White and surrounding a blue instrument background with “Polar” logo. Mopar tread-pattern slush mats complete the interior appointments of the new Wrangler Polar Edition.

In addition to an all-new Hydro Blue, the Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition model is also available in Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White exterior colors.

Engineered to take on the most challenging off-road trails and snow-covered roads, Jeep Wrangler Polar is equipped with the Dana 30 front axle and powerful Dana 44 rear axle. Legendary Wrangler capability is achieved through the standard Command-Trac NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. In order to handle any off-road track in utmost safety, the new Wrangler Polar model comes standard with the Trac-Lok anti-spin rear differential with an available electronic locking differential.

The standard equipment for on-board comfort includes automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated controls, heated front seats, height-adjustable driver seat, Electronic Vehicle Information Centre (EVIC) and cruise control.

The new limited-edition model will be powered by the award-winning Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine that delivers 285 hp and 260 ft.-lbs. of torque and is paired to a standard six-speed manual or an available five-speed automatic transmission. Wrangler achieves up to 21 miles per gallon while still providing strong low-end torque necessary for easy off-roading.
