Jeep is so convinced that it has built the perfect beach vehicle that it is back with its special 2021 Jeep Wrangler Islander Edition. The Jeep’s Islander Blue evokes the beach scene and summer fun. This is the first time in 11 years that Jeep has brought the Islander Edition back.
“Our Jeep enthusiasts expect legendary Jeep 4x4 capability, and they also embrace the Jeep brand’s fun ‘go anywhere, do anything’ adventure lifestyle,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “With Surf Blue accent stitching, Islander-embroidered front seats and available white three-piece hardtop on the Wrangler, you can’t help but think summer and the beach life when you see these new Islander special editions.”
While the Islander Special Edition is designed to stand out at the beach, all 2021 Jeep Wranglers perform extraordinarily well on beach terrain. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler has several key features that make it a great vehicle whether you are surfing or just catching rays.
