2018 jeep wrangler jl moab edition

The launch date remains unknown, but shouldn’t be too far

The new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has been out and about for some time now and it even reached European shores, but new leaked information says we’ll see a Moab Edition in the near future.

JL Wrangler Forums uncovered what looks like an ordering guide for the upcoming Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition and it involves a price tag of $51,200 (MSRP), without adding in the $1,495 destination charge.

Yes, that’s quite a lot, so while we let that sink in, here’s what customers should get for that kind of money. 

First of all, the Wrangler JL Moab uses the four-door Wrangler Sahara as starting point, so it packs the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine twinned with an eight-speed automatic gearbox that harnesses 285 hp and 260 lb-ft.

It also packs a plethora of features that enhance its off-road abilities, such as the Selec-Trac full-time transfer case, a limited-slip differential, steel Mopar rock rails, a front bumper also made of steel, and black tow hooks on both ends.

On the visual front, the Wrangler Moab Edition makes use of a dual-vented Rubicon hood, Moab hood decals, and 17-inch Rubicon wheels.

Optional gear includes the likes of heated front seats and steering wheel, remote start system, three-piece hard top or Sunrider soft top.
