The Jeep Wrangler Dragon limited edition with a custom paintjob and high gloss satin finish with a deep black shade will arrive in the U.S. showroom in October with a hefty price tag of $37,090.
There is always something about limited-edition vehicles, an extra touch that manufacturers add to attract well-off buyers. Jeep has announced the latest 2014 Wrangler Dragon Edition, which it showed off at the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exposition. The New Wrangler Dragon Edition will hit the U.S. showrooms next month with a hefty $37,090 price tag including shipment.
The Wrangler Dragon features similar specification as the average Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but has a unique appearance. Like the concept model, the Dragon Edition is based on the Wrangler Sahara four-door model, and comes in only one color, black. The unique glossy black paintjob on the exterior is highlighted with a bronze and gold lining on the front grill and the alloys. As the name suggests, the symbolic Chinese dragon is printed on the hood running through the driver doors, under the bonnet, spare tire cover and the seats.
While the whole body paintjob is done in "satin" gloss finish, the unique 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are matte black. The alloys are outlined with the high-gloss satin bronze color. The interior is also matched with the dragon theme featuring black leather seating with sides in matching bronze-gold finish. The side bolsters feature Magic Wand metallic leather and so do the sides of the headrests, which are matched with bronze floor mats.
"Our loyal Jeep enthusiasts asked us to build this unique Wrangler, and we are delivering exactly what they've asked for," Mike Manley, President and CEO - Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC, said in a press release. "The new 2014 Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition boasts a stunning, unique, upscale design with styling cues that make it unlike any Wrangler ever seen before."
The main focus is the interiors and the designing and the under-hood features are no different than the average Wrangler, which runs on the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine to produce 285 horsepower. The Wrangler is expected to deliver up to 21 miles per gallon on highways and 17 miles per gallon within the city limits.
Although the concept debuted in China tailored to the country's cultural tastes, it will be introduced to the U.S. market in October.
