The Jeep Wrangler Polar was put on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This follows the Jeep’s unveiling of the Arctic edition. Jeep said that the Polar edition is based on the Sahara trim level of the Jeep Wrangler and takes inspiration from the extreme weather conditions in the Antarctic region. On the side of the Jeep Wrangler, we see the “Polar” badge that shows off the exact coordinates of Vostok in Antarctica.
This is actually where the most extreme temperature ever of negative 128.56 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded. It has a one-of-a-kind exterior with a three-color decal with the outline of the mountains on the powerdome hood, and gloss black accents on the front grille.
It features a black Mopar fuel door and is fitted with a set of 18-inch gloss black wheels. These offer a nice contrast to the cool blue exterior paint color. Meanwhile, its new features such as a hard spare tire cover and a body-colored hardtop with a deep-tint sunscreenglass are also only available with the Polar edition. Black leather upholstery is used for the interior. Pearl White accents serve as contrast to the light on Antarctic glaciers.
Furthermore, the Polar edition comes with an all-new cluster overlay with white and blue trim, a steering wheel that’s covered with leather, and Mopar tread-pattern slush mats. Passengers are kept warm by standard heated front seats.
For entertainment, the model has a UConnect infotainment system that’s operated via a 6.5-inch touchscreen. The Jeep Wrangler models have automatic climate control, and cruise control as standard. The Polar versions of the Jeep Wrangler are offered in both two- and four-door form, and feature a 200-hp 2.8-liter turbo-diesel I-4 mated to a five-speed automatic. The Polar Edition is only available in Europe.
The unique cabin of the Jeep Wrangler Polar special edition also highlights an all-new cluster overlay with rings painted high-gloss Ceramic White and encompassing a blue instrument background with "Polar" logo. Mopar tread-pattern slush mats caps off the interior appointments of the brand-new Wrangler Polar.
In addition to the all-new Hydro Blue color that contributes to the exceptional look of the car shown in Frankfurt, the Jeep Wrangler Polar special edition model is likewise available in Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White exterior colors.
Engineered to go up against the most difficult off-road trails, Jeep Wrangler Polar is outfitted with the Dana 30 front axle and robust Dana 44 rear axle. Trademark Wrangler capacity is accomplished through the standard Command-Trac NV241 part-time, two-speed exchange case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear proportion. Keeping in mind the goal to deal with any off-road track in maximum safety, the all-new Wrangler Polar model comes standard with the Trac-Lok anti-spin rear differential.
This specific differential supersedes the manual rear-axle locker and is a torque-sensitive mechanical unit that operates to keep up traction when travelling on slippery or rugged road surfaces, like sand, rocks, snow or ice. Trac-Lok intuitively shares the available torque to the rear wheel with the most traction, thus lessening wheel turn caused by lack of traction in the other rear wheel.
The standard hardware for on-board comfortability includes automatic climate control, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated controls, Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), height-adjustable driver seat, 40-gigabyte hard disk, and UConnectTM mult-media infotainment navigation system with 6.5-inch touchscreen.
