Both come with some special Mopar flare.
The FCA Group are no strangers to special edition cars. There have been dozens of them this year alone, several coming from the Jeep brand. Some notable special editions from the past include the Willys Edition and the uniquely-named Black Bear Limited Edition, both of which are based on the Wrangler. But now Jeep has reintroduced a pickup truck back into its lineup, so its time for the special editions to come flooding in.
At the 2019 Miami Auto Show, Jeep introduced new special edition versions of the Wrangler and Gladiator called the Three O Five Edition. 305 is the area code for the Miami area and both of these customized Jeeps are decked out with Florida-specific accessories from the Mopar parts department.
Both the Wrangler and Gladiator Three O Five models are based on the Sport S trim level and can be painted in either Bright White or Punk'n Orange Metallic (pictured here). The Wrangler model even features Jeep's Sky One-touch powertop roof, meaning this is the first time customers will be able to enjoy this option on the Sport S trim level. Both cars include special decals with Miami-inspired designs such as parasailers on the front fenders.
"We are creating these Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator 'Three O Five' Edition vehicles as a tribute to our passionate Jeep consumers and dealers who live and work in the area," said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand - FCA North America. "We chose a Miami theme for these vehicles because the area's outdoor vibrant environment is a perfect match for the Jeep open-air freedom lifestyle. We believe consumers in the Miami area will enjoy this nod to their celebrated outdoor community."
"These 'Three O Five' Edition models are coming to life with a unique appearance and combination of options, including a Sky One-touch powertop, Sport LED lighting and unique Miami-themed graphics. Dealers will be able to add an array of Jeep Performance Parts from Mopar to recreate the rugged and fun versions on display at the Miami Auto Show," Morrison added. Jeep will only build 305 examples of these vehicles (255 Wranglers and 50 Gladiators) with all of the special graphics, but the company told us "you can get pretty close" with accessories from Mopar.
The Wrangler is powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injection turbo engine producing 270 horsepower while the Gladiator gets a 3.6-liter V6 with 285 hp. Jeep didn't mention starting prices for the Three O Five Editions but notes that some of the equipment seen on these cars - like the winch and tube doors - will be optional.
