Jeep announced two new special editions, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Wrangler Moab Special Edition—with both meant to create a buzz for their hardcore off-roading enthusiasts. Both models are due out this October and will seriously tackle any terrain you throw at them.
The Trailhawk SUV was first shown as a concept at the Easter Safari event in Moab, Utah but its production form features both V6 and V8 powertrain configurations and a special appearance package that displays a black hood decal with red accent stripe. It also comes with 18-inch aluminum wheels, black headlamp buckets, gray grille surround, a rear light bar and signature badging. The special edition GC also comes standard with Kevlar-reinforced Goodyear Silent Armor all-terrain tires for sturdy, puncture-free trail driving and benefits from steel rock rails to keep its body safe, while a Quadra-Lift air suspension along with the standard Select-Terrain traction control system, a rear electronic limited-slip differential for V8 models, a two-speed transfer case and much more allow it to tackle any environments you try to conquer.
The Wrangler Moab Special Edition starts life as a top-of-the line Wrangler Sahara, in both two- and four-door form, and is fitted with some off-roading extras. It includes the ame Kevlar tires as on the Trailhawk, along with a standard Trac-Lok rear differential (an electronic locking rear diff is available, too), winch-ready bumpers, rock rails and 17-inch Rubicon alloy wheels. The Wrangler Moab has also been treated to a unique hood, black accents on the fuel filler cap and taillamps, a premium soft top and, of course, edition-specific badging.
