New 2012 Jeep Wrangler And Liberty Arctic Special Edition

Trying to satisfy that huge pent-up demand, Jeep has announced two, yes two, new models: the new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Arctic and Jeep Liberty Arctic. Now those of you who love the cold can pretend that you are off to the Arctic!

“There are few environments more grueling and demanding than the Arctic, which is just the type of terrain legendary Jeep vehicles are engineered to conquer,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO — Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Not only will the Jeep Wrangler Arctic and Jeep Liberty Arctic appeal to our loyal enthusiasts, but their unique content will attract new customers to the Jeep brand.”

Available in Liberty, Wrangler, and Wrangler Unlimited, the 2012 Arctic models arrive in Jeep showrooms this month.

The Jeep Wrangler Arctic is based on the Wrangler Sahara model and the Arctic’s winter theme is instantly recognizable. It is available in three colors—Winter Chill, Bright Silver, and Bright White. Exterior features include a body-color hardtop and fender flares, “Arctic” badges on the front fenders, a “Yeti Footprint” decal over part of the driver’s side fender and hood, black hood decal and Mopar black fuel filler door and taillamp guards.

There is also a Jeep Wrangler Arctic with an aggressive Wrangler Rubicon tire and wheel package, which features unique semi-gloss black 17-inch wheels with 32-inch tires.

Inside, Wrangler Arctic’s seats are covered with black Tectonic fabric with Polar White accents and orange accent stitching. The front seats are heated and feature an “Arctic” logo in the seat back. Accent stitching is used on the steering wheel, arm rest, and console lid. Door trim and nets are accented in orange, and all grab handles and dashboard vent rings are finished in Polar White trim. Mopar tread pattern slush mats with white “Jeep” lettering complete the Wrangler Arctic package.

You’ll find the Liberty Sport 4x4 models clad in the Arctic package. Available exterior colors are Winter Chill, Bright Silver, Bright White, and Mineral Gray. “Arctic” badges are used on the front fenders, and the “Arctic” decal on the hood is unique to Liberty. Semi-gloss black 16-inch aluminum wheels with center caps painted semi-gloss black are wrapped in P235/70R16 OWL all-terrain tires. Finally, Jeep Liberty Artic exterior highlights are deep tint glass, tow hooks, headlamps, and standard fog lamps are all blacked-out.

In the interior, a similar black and Arctic Orange color scheme which is found in Wrangler is used. Seats are covered in black vinyl with a Gortex embossment, and the inserts are Tectonic fabric with Polar White accents. Arctic Orange accent stitching can be found on the seat backs, cushions, and headrests. Power front seats are heated, and feature an “Arctic” logo in the seat back. Finishing touches include gray-faced gauges, express up/down one-touch windows, Media Center 430 touch-screen with a nine-speaker Infiniti sound system and Mopar slush mats with white “Jeep” lettering.
