Jeep Wrangler Polar edition on sale from $45,500

April 20, 2014

Interested in getting rough and dirty in all kinds of rugged terrain? Jeep Australia has announced what could be the perfect vehicle for you; the new Jeep Wrangler Polar edition. It’s designed to help you get as far bush as you can handle.

Jeep Wrangler Polar edition

The Polar edition is based on the Overland, which is already a properly-equipped off-roader, and is available in two-door and four-door forms. The Polar goes that step further with unique styling elements and plenty of heavy-duty mechanical features.

In terms of design, the Polar edition can be spotted from a mile away thanks to its aggressive 18-inch alloy wheels in gloss black, matching black trimmings, a Mopar ‘power dome’ bonnet, a Mopar black fuel cap, and the inscriptions ’78° S’ and ‘106° E’ on the front guards. The figures are the exact coordinates for the location of the most severe conditions ever recorded in the world, in Vostok in Antarctica (-89.2° C).

As for the mechanical stuff, the Polar edition comes with the company’s 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine producing 210kW. It sends power down into a part-time four-wheel drive system with a Trac-Lok limited-slip differential and an electronic diff locker.

There’s also Quadra-Coil suspension with five-link front solid axle and five-link rear solid axle with heavy-duty, monotube gas-charged shock absorbers, and Dana heavy-duty axles front and rear.

Inside, it’s relatively luxurious, with special Polar-embroidered leather seats, a ceramic grab handle with a Polar logo, pearl stitching on the front seats, and unique door trims.

All variants come with a five-speed automatic transmission as standard. See below for the full pricing (excluding on-road costs):

Jeep Wrangler Polar two-door – $45,500
