2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition:

2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition: First Limited Edition JL Debuts

Aug 28, 2018



Taking inspiration from the trails and off-roaders of Moab, Utah, and the host city of the Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep has released its first limited edition JL Wrangler: The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition.

Building on the Sahara trim, the Moab will add special interior and exterior content plus an aggressive set of 32-inch mud terrain rubber on low-gloss black 17-inch aluminum wheels. Off-road fans will be gratified to learn the Moab will also feature the Rubicon hood and steel bumpers, a full-time transfer case, and limited-slip diff.

Off-road rock sliders may sound like a new menu option at Applebee’s but are actually designed to let the Wrangler navigate its way over boulders without bashing its rocker panels into oblivion. The unadventurous can swap them out for a set of Sahara side steps.



Those steel bumpers are a dandy item, allowing owners to remove their end caps for an even more aggro approach angle. Equipped this way, the Wrangler Moab will appear as if its towering front fascia is comprised of 90% tire.



In terms of looks, the Moab will be offered in nine colors, with hues ranging from Bright White to Firecracker Red. LEDs will adorn the head- and taillights, whose surrounds will be painted the same low-gloss black that’s found on the wheels. The grille throats get a shot of this shady paint as well. A body-color hard top is standard but the Dual Top Group or Sky One-Touch power top are also available.

Inside, the Wrangler Moab Edition’s seats and dashboard will be lined with contrast-stitched leather. All manner of safety nannies like Rear Cross Path Detection are standard, as are Jeep’s 8.4-inch uConnect infotainment system and a nine-speaker Alpine sound system.

The sole options will be a Cold Weather Package that heats up the seats and steering wheel, along with a Trailer Tow Package and the company’s new Trail Rail cargo management system.

Pricing wasn’t mentioned by the company but past speculation put the Moab’s sticker price ahead of that found on the Rubicon. It’s a shrewd play for Jeep, as the Moab will likely appeal to customers who want all the luxury found in the Sahara trim but also want rugged Rubicon styling cues. Look for it on dealer lots shortly.
