Jeep wants you to honor our veterans in style with the new Jeep Wrangler Freedom edition.
Do you love freedom? ‘Course you do. That’s why you own a Jeep--so you’re free to ignore roads and just travel wherever four-wheel-drive, solid axles, and all-terrain tires can take you. Jeep has become a brand that’s synonymous with the American dream, and there’s no better vehicle to honor the troops than the Jeep Wrangler.
That’s why Jeep has made the Wrangler Freedom model, a new special edition that has a very distinct military styling. If that makes it seem like Jeep is just paying lip service to the men and women in uniform, note that Jeep will make a $250 donation to the USO for every Freedom Wrangler sold, so this is definitely not just a marketing stunt.
Although it does look cool.
The Freedom Wrangler is based on the Wrangler Sport S trim, which means you get keyless entry, air conditioning, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Besides that, you also get the standard 3.6-L Pentastar V6 with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, or the option to pay a bit more for the 2.0-L 4-cylinder turbo with 272 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque.
You may have noticed that the Freedom Edition has some unique exterior enhancements, which include an American flag decal next to the Jeep brand logo, as well as a military star decal on the hood. Then there's the "Oscar Mike" badge on the tailgate, a riff on the military phrase meaning "on the move."
A black premium Sunrider soft-top roof with deep-tint rear-windows completes the aesthetic design. On the inside, the Freedom Wrangler gets McKinley black cloth with Light Tungsten accent stitching, as well as the Oscar Mike phrase embossed on the seatbacks. More grey accents can be found on the steering wheel, doors, seats, and armrests.
You can get the Wrangler Freedom edition in red, white or blue to start, with the other Wrangler colors being made available after the initial run. MSRP starts at $34,190 for the 2-door model or$37,690 for the 4-door.
