2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition Spotted Camo-Free

Not to be confused with the mountainous region in Jordan or the kingdom from days long past, Moab is the name that Jeep uses for a special edition of the Wrangler. Named after the adventure mecca in Utah known as Moab Desert, the Wrangler Moab is coming back for the 2018 model year according to our friends at the JL Wrangler Forums.

The two-door JL and four-door JLU are still fresh, but to keep the hype as high as possible, Jeep won’t shy from offering special edition after special edition of the off-road sport utility vehicle. Spotted by a forum member in the vicinity of the Fiat Chrysler headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan, the Wrangler Moab appears to be as close to production as a validation prototype can get.

As you can tell from the sole photograph of the newcomer, we’re dealing with steel bumpers, BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 off-road rubber, heavy-duty rock rails, black two hooks at the front and rear, blacked-out wheels, and a gray-finished Jeep badge on the left-hand side front fender.

MOAB decals in uppercase letters are in the pipeline as well. The design of the decals in question was leaked onto the Internet in December 2017 after a member of the JL Wrangler Forums spotted it in the parts catalog. While we wait for more information on the Wrangler Moab to surface, bear in mind this fellow won’t come cheap as it is based on the Rubicon.

In Unlimited configuration, the Wrangler Rubicon costs an eye-watering $40,495. Add just about everything you’re allowed to add by the online configurator, and you’re looking at a fully-loaded price that beggars belief. More to the point, make that $57,310.

For the time being, the Wrangler is available with two transmissions and two engine options in the United States. In addition to a six-speed manual, customers can level up to an eight-speed automatic for $2,000. In regard to the suck-squeeze-bang-blow side of the Wrangler, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is surpassed by the 2.0-liter Hurricane turbocharged four-cylinder that also benefits from mild-hybrid assistance.
