Leaked order guides suggest it will cost over $10,000 more than the 2018 Wrangler Sahara.
Jeep has unveiled the new 2018 Wrangler Moab Edition that adds more standard equipment and extra off-road capability to the rugged off-roader. Based on the Wrangler Sahara, the Moab Edition features Rubicon hood and steel bumpers with removable end caps, as well as chunky 32-inch mud-terrain tires, LED headlights and tail lights, and a Moab decal on the hood.
It rides on 17-inch Rubicon wheels painted in Low-Gloss Black with matching headlight surrounds, grille throats and tow hooks finished in the same color to continue the dark theme. Wrangler Rubicon rock rails come as standard, but Sahara side steps are available at no additional charge. A body-color hard top is also included as standard, with Dual Top Group or Sky One-Touch power tops also available.
Nine color options will be available for the 2018 Wrangler Moab Edition, including Granite Crystal, Billet Silver, Punk’n Metallic, Mojito!, Black, Bright White, Sting Gray, Ocean Blue Metallic and Firecracker Red.
Inside, the Wrangler Moab Edition features the Leather Interior Group, which adds leather-trimmed seats and a leather-wrapped dashboard with contrast stitching, and Jeep’s Safety Group package, which includes driver assists such as Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, ParkSense park assist with reverse stop and ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines. Other standard features include Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case, Passive Keyless Entry, Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential, 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen with navigation, a nine-speaker premium Alpine sound system and all-weather slush mats.
If you want even more equipment, Jeep is also offering the Cold Weather Group as an optional package, which features heated front seats and steering wheel and remote start, Trailer Tow and Trail Rail cargo management system.
No pricing details have been announced, but we already know how much the 2018 Wrangler Moab Edition will cost thanks to an order guide that leaked earlier this month. Expect it to command a $10,905 over the base price of the four-door 2018 Wrangler Sahara, bringing the total to $51,200 before options, plus a $1,495 destination charge. For comparison, that’s about the same as an entry-level 2018 Ford Expedition XLT. Being based on the Wrangler Sahara, power comes from a 3.6-liter V6 that sends 285 hp and 260 lb-ft to all fours wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
