Just this month Jeep took the wraps off three off-road enhanced Wrangler models
for the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. Now, following this week’s 2011 New York Auto Show, we can add one more toughened-up Wrangler to the list, the brand new 2011 Jeep Wrangler Mojave. And the best part is, this one’s headed for a Jeep showroom near you.
Paying tribute to the well-known and rugged western desert Mojave Trail, the Jeep Wrangler Mojave features a unique desert theme inside and out, and an aggressive wheel and tire package for when it’s time to leave the pavement.
Based on the Wrangler Sport model, the Wrangler Mojave gets a body-colored roof and fender flares, custom decals, and the Sahara model’s side steps. Customers can also pick an aggressive Wrangler Rubicon tire and wheel package, with mineral gray 17-inch wheels shod with 32-inch tires.
Color options include Sahara Tan, Bright White and Black.
Inside, the seats are trimmed in dark saddle leather with a lizard logo embossed on the front seats. Special driftwood trim surrounds the vents, front-passenger grab handle, steering-wheel spokes and door-handle inserts, and the guys at Mopar add some tread pattern slush mats and overhead grab handles.
Available in Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Mojave arrives in showrooms in June. The base price on short-wheelbase versions starts from $29,945 including destination.
