New Car: 2012 Jeep Wrangler Arctic

Jeep still maintains the new package is inspired by the grueling terrain of the Arctic – which, it can’t help but note, is “just the type of terrain Jeep vehicles are designed to conquer.” Perhaps, but neither the Wrangler Arctic nor its Liberty sibling are blessed with specialized equipment designed to facilitate sub-zero travel. Instead, the Arctic package is essentially a spiffy dress-up kit for the 2012 Wrangler Sahara, the 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, and the 2012 Liberty Sport.

On Wranglers, that dress-up kit is essentially identical to what’s offered abroad. Wrangler Arctic models – which are only offered in Winter Chill, Bright Silver, or Bright White paint — receive a number of cosmetic touches inspired by the mythical yeti. In fact, the abominable snowman rears his head on the unique exterior badging and front seat covers, while his footprint is found on the driver’s front fender.

Other exterior revisions include unique black 17-inch wheels, a matching gas cap cribbed from Mopar’s accessory catalog, and a black hood accent that’s unique to the North American model. Inside, Arctic models receive Mopar floormats, new seat inserts and piping, accent stitching on the steering wheel and center console lid, orange accents for the door storage pockets, and accent trim decorated with a Polar White finish.
