Jeep Braces For Winter With 'North Edition' Models

Special Editions / 5 Comments

The new package is available now.

Jeep continues to pour it on with special-edition sport utility vehicles, this week announcing new "North Edition" models for its entire US-market lineup. These special Jeep SUVs make winter their specialty with standard 4x4 drivetrains, a Jeep Trail Rated kit, and other goodies to help keep occupants warm through the winter.

Targeting winter utility and livability is a natural strategy for Jeep, thanks to the rugged, go-anywhere/do-anything image the brand carries. As FCA's North American Head of Jeep Jim Morrison puts it: "When winter weather hits, your Jeep SUV can be your best friend," with the right drivetrain and other equipment to handle inclement cold weather conditions.

Jeep has brought a trio of North Edition models to the New England Auto Show, based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, and brand new Jeep Gladiator. Each 4x4 North Edition features a brake lock differential - a system that effectively emulates a mechanical locking differential (where the rotational speed of the right and left wheels is locked together) using the vehicle's brakes. It's the perfect system for getting unstuck from a deep snow drift, or getting going on a patch of ice.

Additionally, all Jeep North Edition models boast winter-capable all-season or all-terrain tires, heated seats, a heated steering wheel, heated side mirrors, remote start, all-weather floor mats, and a Jeep Trail Rated kit with a tow strap, D-rings, carabiner, gloves, and a safety kit.

Jeep North Edition models are available for order right now, just in time for the worst of this winter's inclement weather, although the least expensive of them all - the $26,670 Jeep Renegade North Edition - won't be reaching showrooms until March.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee North Edition, based on the Laredo trim, starts at $38,790, while the more hardcore Sahara trim-based Jeep Wrangler and Overland trim-based Jeep Gladiator North Edition models start at $44,465 and $45,720, respectively.
