The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition

Chrysler introduces the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition

The Jeep Wrangler began its life almost 70 years ago (then known as the Willys CJ) having been based on the military-use WIllys MB and it was with that army background t in mind that the Chrysler Group has put together the new Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition for the 2012 model year.

The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition is available on both the standard 2-door Wrangler or the 4-door Wrangler Unlimited and this new patriotic package is based on the top-selling Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Sport trimline. Like all other 2012 Wranglers, the new Freedom Edition is powered by the 3.6L Pentastar V6 packing 285 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque with this power channeled to all four wheels via a standard 6-speed manual transmission.

The 2012 Wrangler Freedom Edition is offered in Deep Cherry Red and Bright White (both of which are offered on other Wrangler models) but specific to the Freedom Edition is a new dark blue paint option appropriately named True Blue. The Freedom Edition then adds Mineral Gray painted 17 inch aluminum wheels similar to those found on the Wrangler Rubicon and that Mineral Gray theme is mirrored in the grille, the front bumper, the rear bumper and the unique star-in-circle military style decals on the hood and on the passenger’s side rear corner. The exterior upgrades are capped off by a set up unique military style badges on the fenders that read “Oscar Mike” (military slang for “on the move”), a Mopar fuel filler door, a set of black side step bars, black taillight guards and a Sunrider soft top with tinted rear windows in addition to the standard Wrangler hard top.
