The rugged off-roader has been transformed into a premium luxury SUV.
The rugged Jeep Wrangler is renowned for its off-road capability, but it's far from the most luxurious SUV on the market compared to, say, the Land Rover Range Rover. Chelsea Truck Company aims to change this and has revealed a new luxury take on the Wrangler designed by Afzal Kahn, the director of Kahn Design. Dubbed the 'CJ400' edition, the transformed Jeep Wrangler is finished in a 3D texture black military livery emphasizing its off-road capability. Chelsea Truck Company thinks the livery "would not look out of place in a John Connor inspired post-apocalyptic Terminator movie."
To give the Wrangler a more premium look, Kahn has added an exposed carbon grille with a gloss finish. Available with factory mounting points, this component is designed to fit any new Jeep Wrangler JL model.
Other exterior highlights include a black ceramic quad exhaust system with 3.9-inch tailpipes, LED Diamond bright headlights, horizontal LED running lights, a CTC fuel filler cap, hood vents, new mud flaps and a branded rear wheel cover. If required, the blank rear window section and LED lights are available with bullet-proof glass.
Inside, the front and rear seats are upholstered in luxurious quilted leather, which is also applied to the door armrests and center glove box. Vented foot pedals in machined aluminum, stainless steel door entry sill plates, and retro-inspired 9 x 20 inch alloy wheels finished in black military paint complete the package.
The custom right-hand-drive Jeep Wrangler shown in photos is a 2019 model with 1,400 miles on the clock available for £59,999 ($80,349). That's a hefty premium over the standard Jeep Wrangler, which starts at $28,295. Individual parts, accessories and components can also be ordered separately. No modifications were made under the hood, which means it retains its standard 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 280 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, paired with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
