Jeep introduces the 2018 Wrangler Moab Edition | McLarty Daniel CDJRF of Springdale
For years now, Jeep has been tantalizing devotees of the Jeep brand by rolling out a small fleet of one-off Jeep concept vehicles at the annual Easter Jeep Safari held every spring in Moab, Utah. Now that storied off-roading playground is lending its name to the first special edition model of the completely redesigned 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL: the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab!
Announced by Jeep on August 28, the 2018 Wrangler Moab is based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara model, and features the Sahara’s body-color hardtop as standard equipment. What sets the Wrangler Moab apart, however, are a number of factory mods lifted from the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon edition, which help make the Moab into a tough-as-nails off roading machine that’s as happy on the trail or blasting through mud as it is on city streets.
The Wrangler Moab includes the 2018 Rubicon’s signature hood with functional air intakes, as well as the Rubicon’s steel bumpers with removable end caps. Jeep Rubicon also lends the Moab its high-strength steel rock rails to protect the lower body (Sahara style side steps are also available). The hood sides are adorned with low gloss black “MOAB” decals, with the headlight surrounds, grille throats, front tow hooks and 17-inch wheels — the latter also borrowed from the Rubicon — painted the same matte black. Putting the power to the ground are 32-inch mud-terrain tires with aggressive tread, while LED headlights and tail lights are standard. The body color hardtop is also standard, but the new Sky One-Touch power sliding top and the new, easier-folding fabric top are also available. The Jeep Wrangler Moab is available in nine colors, from eye-popping to understated, including Granite Crystal Gray, Billet Silver, Punk’n Metallic, Mojito Green, Black, Bright White, Sting Gray, Ocean Blue Metallic and Firecracker Red.
Inside, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Moab is as premium as the outside, with standard leather-trimmed seats and leather wrapped dashboard with contrast stitching. Also standard is the Jeep Safety Group package, which includes ParkSense Parking Assist, Parkview rear backup camera, blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection. Keeping you entertained on the trail is the standard nine-speaker premium sound system from Alpine, with all-weather components, controlled by the standard 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen.
Optional on the Moab are heated front seats and steering wheel, plus remote start so you can crank her up from inside the house on cold mornings. Meanwhile, underneath are Trail Rated Jeep components, including standard Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case, and the Trac-Lok limited slip rear differential.
