The Jeep Wrangler Polar edition has blown into Australian showrooms a few weeks out from the start of winter.
Priced $3000 above the Wrangler Overland on which it’s based, the limited edition Polar is available in two-door ($45,500) and four-door ($50,000) body styles and is fitted with a range of unique features and styling elements inspired by the harsh climate of Antarctica.
Distinguishing the Jeep Wrangler Polar is a body-colour grille with black accents, Mopar power dome bonnet and fuel flap, gloss black front and rear bumper inserts, 18-inch polished alloy wheels with gloss black accents, and a special Polar badge with 78 ° S 106° E coordinates, which correspond to the location of Vostok in Antarctica, the point where the coldest temperature in the world (-89.2 degrees) was recorded.
The Polar is available in an exclusive Hydro blue body colour, as well as Billet Silver and Bright White.
Subtle interior enhancements over the Overland include Polar seatback embroidery, ceramic-accent grab handle with Polar logo, pearl-accent stitching on the front seats and armrests, and accent-colour finish on the front and rear door grab handles and vent rings.
Features carried across from the Overland include automatic headlights, reverse-view camera, climate control, satellite navigation, leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated leather seats.
All Jeep Wrangler Polar models are powered by the brand’s 209kW/347Nm 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine and come standard with a five-speed automatic transmission.
The Polar matches the Overland’s off-road ability, offering 223mm ground clearance, 35-degree approach angle, 22-degree breakover angle, 28-degree departure angle and Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system, and can be ordered with the Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential.
