Jeep reveals the Wrangler Moab Limited Edition

Article by Christian A., on September 6, 2012

Jeep is set to introduce a limited-edition model dubbed the Jeep Wrangler Moab to start off the launch of its 2013 lineup. It is named after Moab, Utah – a very famous off-road destination in the world. This is also the home of the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari.

Jeep Wrangler Moab is based on the premium Sahara model and features plenty of features for off-roading such as a set of gloss black 17-inch Rubicon alloy wheels that are covered in new 245/75R17 Goodyear Silent Armor off-road tires with Kevlar reinforcement, a standard Trac-Lok anti-spin rear differential with an available electronic rear locking differential, winch-ready steel bumpers and premium rock rails.

Wrangler Moab has a crawl ratio of 45:1 when it is equipped with a manual transmission and a 3.73 rear axle ratio. Its exterior gets a unique Mopar power dome hood, black fuel filler door and tail lamp guards.

It will also get the premium soft top (new for the 2013MY), “Moab” decals on the hood, black wheel arches, and matte black Jeep grille badge.

A body-color three-piece hard top is optional. Its interior revisions include black or saddle premium leather seating with black stitching on the newly-designed 2013 Wrangler seats, “Moab” embossed instrument panel grab handle, Mopar slush mats and Iron Gray trim on the vent rings, grab handles and steering wheel spokes.

The Jeep Wrangler Moab is offered as a two-door Wrangler or four-door Wrangler Unlimited model. It is available in the following exterior colors: Crush, Dozer, Rock Lobster, Gecko, Black and Bright White.

With more than seven decades of 4x4 engineering experience, it is understandable that the Jeep Wrangler is unmatched in its four-wheel-drive off-road capability. Its body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, live axles and electronic lockers are still available until now.

A choice between a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic gearbox is also available for the Jeep Wrangler.

The ride and sound characteristics of its body-on-frame design are also optimized along with its new powertrain. Meanwhile, an overall improvement in its performance is all thanks to its new motor and transmission adaptations and its modified suspension calibration.

With a more refined powertrain mounting system, sound quality in the interior is improved. This plus noise damping in the firewall and the first-time usage of the engine cover work to isolate the cabin from noises made by the engine and road surfaces. Engine noise, however, is barely audible from the outside.

No accessory brackets are needed to mount all the accessories onto the new 3.6-liter V6 engine, making sure that all accessories such as the power steering pump, alternator and air conditioning compressor are anchored firmly, thus reducing vibration and noise.
