Jeep Teases a Special Mopar Edition of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler
Attention all Jeep and off-roading enthusiasts! Jeep is teasing a new limited- edition vehicle that will be on display at the Chicago Auto Show. Mopar has created a Jeep Performance Parts limited- edition of what appears to be a 2020 Jeep Wrangler.
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most personalized vehicles in history. Mopar offers more than 200 different Jeep Performance Parts. The different parts and accessories give owners the chance to make the Jeep truly their own. They can enhance their off-road abilities and enjoy the great outdoors exactly as they wish.
Visible Mopar Upgrades
The teaser picture doesn’t offer any explanations, just shows what appears to be a Wrangler with Mopar tubular doors. The picture also shows the four-door vehicle outfitted with beadlock wheels with huge tires. In the current Jeep Performance Parts catalogue, they have this saying preceding the wheel descriptions. “If you’re a hardcore off-roader, then your tires are as big as your ambition. Performance wheels and components are highly engineered to handle wider, aggressive off-road rubber, offer maximum traction and raise your profile (and your heart rate).”
The photo also shows a black hard top, but it is impossible from the picture to know what sort of skidplates, shocks and other reinforcements are on the Wrangler. I can’t tell from the angle what sorts of upgraded bumpers or lift kit might be on the Wrangler.
Jeep Custom Shops Located Near the Factory
Ram and Jeep have upgraded the ordering system for new vehicles by creating custom shops located near the plants.
The special custom shops make it possible for people to order new vehicles, complete with special Mopar packages already installed and built into the cost of the vehicle. That way, buyers can build the extras into their car loans, instead of having to pay for them out-of-pocket. Plus, they get all the add-ons when they get their new vehicle. The factory installed special accessories also are covered by the vehicle warranties.
While Mopar may make this limited- edition version available, it is unlikely that it would come with the tubular doors. In the catalogue, it warns drivers not to drive on paved roads with the tubular doors because they don’t offer the standard protection of regular doors.
This Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts limited-edition is sure to capture the attention of Jeep lovers at the Chicago Auto Show. I can’t wait to see the whole vehicle and will be sure to release more information about it as I get it.
The Chicago Auto Show runs from February 8-17, 2020, at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
