Mopar Teases Special Jeep Wrangler With Some Wild Upgrades

Teaser / Comments

We'll get to see it at the Chicago Auto Show next month.

The Chicago Auto Show was historically wedged between two massive events: the North American International Auto show in Detroit, and the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. Between the two, there was little room left for Chicago to see any major product debuts. However, that seems to be changing, as Detroit's rescheduling to June puts some wind back in the sails of the Windy City's auto show.

Traditionally, Fiat Chrysler showcases a selection of customized trucks at Chicago, and this year's show will be no exception. At the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, Mopar will present a new special-edition Jeep Wrangler kitted out with a range of performance parts. Details are scarce, but a render released by Jeep shows the new special edition model will be based on the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

We only get to see the new special edition from the rear-quarter angle, but some of the modifications can still be seen. The special-edition Wrangler has been upgraded with steel tube doors and new beadlock capable wheels wrapped in chunky tires to improve off-road capability.

Mopar offers more than 200 Jeep Performance Parts, so the teaser only gives us a small taste of the new special edition Wrangler's extensive upgrades. We'll have to wait until the 2020 Chicago Auto Show to find out more. This will be one of several new special edition versions of the Wrangler that Jeep has unveiled recently.

Last year, the Wrangler Three O Five Edition debuted at the 2019 Miami Auto Show. More recently, the new rugged Rubicon Recon version was unveiled, which comes with durable painted steel bumpers, front bumper hoop, and Moab Rock Rails, along with 17-inch wheels wrapped in 33-inch all-terrain tires, while the new North Edition is designed for winter driving.

A new hybrid version called the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe is also joining the lineup with improved torque and engine response, as well as better fuel economy than the current 48-volt mild-hybrid version.
