After it announced the 2011 Jeep Street Cherokee and the 2011 Dodge, Chrysler also said that it will bring the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Mopar Edition. As expected, the car will be a Jeep Wrangler fitted with lots of Mopar parts and accessories – in one word Moparized. So, the off-road machine will carry a new set of impressive 35-inch all-terrain tires mounted on AEV wheels.
Further defending the vehicle from the onslaught of the off-road are steel front and rear bumpers.
The front bumper comes with integrated fog lights in order to improve driver’s visibility in inclement weather, while the rear bumper designed by AEV features a tire carrier.
Mopar/AEV installed a new hood which provides proper protection from the debris of the off-road and a Warn winch ready in case of an emergency. The exterior design is completed by the hardtop and flares that match its fire-red exterior color.
The 2011 Jeep Wrangler that made its appearance at the 2010 SEMA Show featured a revamped interior and slightly upgraded exteriors. When you open the door, you’ll see an instrument panel that’s totally different from the ones found in the earlier Jeep Wrangler models.
Armrests at the doors are now more comfortable than ever, while the windows at the rear portion of the vehicle have been enlarged to provide more visibility. Included in the new features that made their first appearance with the 2011 Jeep Wrangler are the power windows.
Chrysler also introduced a hard top with all new colors, exclusive only with the Sahara models of the Jeep Wrangler. Indeed, as Jeep Brand CEO for Chrysler Mike Manley said, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler promises more creature comforts but still retains the performance that the model has always been known for.
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the world’s most accomplished and well-known vehicles. It is now even more accomplished on- and off-road for 2012, with a new, more powerful and fuel efficient 3.6-litre V-6 engine and a new automatic transmission, the same found in the award-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Chrysler’s 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine, which earned a spot as one of Ward's 10 Best Engines, boasts 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque that delivers up to 21 highway mpg. This improvement to the Jeep Wrangler, compared to the previous 3.8-liter V-6 engine, led to 40% more horsepower and 10% more torque.
Jeep Wrangler's interior highlights a newly designed instrument panel and storage areas that have better ergonomics and materials. A lockable console and improved door armrests have comfortable touch points, and the new centre stack is closer to the hand and is more easily operated. There are optional heated power mirrors, and all occupants will enjoy better visibility through the broad rear windows.
