Today I stopped by the Los Angeles Auto show and caught a glimpse of the the new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Arctic and Liberty Arctic. The Liberty on display was white and black like a Star Wars Storm Trooper. The Wrangler got more of an icy blue paint scheme with black accents (although several ice-like colors are available for both). The Jeeps feature Abominable snow man badging on the lower front fenders and seats, plus they feature special interiors. If you're looking for a ride that's all Stormtroopered out, maybe Jeep can help you.
2012 Jeep Wrangler Arctic
Based on the Wrangler Sahara model, the Arctic’s winter theme is immediately recognizable. Available colors are Winter Chill, Bright Silver and Bright White. Exterior features include a body-color hardtop and fender flares, “Arctic” badges on the front fenders, a “Yeti Footprint” decal over part of the driver’s side fender and hood, black hood decal and Mopar® black fuel filler door and taillamp guards.
Jeep Wrangler Arctic also offers an aggressive Wrangler Rubicon tire and wheel package, with unique semi-gloss black 17-inch wheels shod with 32-inch tires.
Inside, Wrangler Arctic’s seats are black Tectonic fabric with Polar White accents and orange accent stitching. Front seats are heated and feature an “Arctic” logo in the seat back. Accent stitching can also be found on the steering wheel, arm rest and console lid. Door trim and nets are accented in orange, and all grab handles and dashboard vent rings are finished in Polar White trim.
Mopar tread pattern slush mats with white “Jeep” lettering complete the Wrangler Arctic package.
2012 Jeep Liberty Arctic
Available on Liberty Sport 4x4 models, the Arctic shares many of the same features as the Wrangler Arctic. Available exterior colors are Winter Chill, Bright Silver, Bright White and Mineral Gray. “Arctic” badges on the front fenders are shared, though the “Arctic” decal on the hood is unique to Liberty. Semi-gloss black 16-inch aluminum wheels with center caps painted semi-gloss black are wrapped in P235/70R16 OWL all-terrain tires. Rounding out the exterior highlights are deep tint glass and tow hooks, blacked-out headlamps and standard fog lamps.
The interior features a similar black and Arctic Orange color scheme found in Wrangler. Seats are covered in black vinyl with a Gortex embossment, and the inserts are Tectonic fabric with Polar White accents. Arctic Orange accent stitching can be found on the seat backs, cushions and headrests. Power front seats are heated and feature an “Arctic” logo in the seat back. Finishing touches include gray-faced gauges, express up/down one-touch windows, Media Center 430 touch-screen with a nine-speaker Infiniti sound system and Mopar slush mats with white “Jeep” lettering.
