On the heels of last year’s introduction of the Jeep Wrangler Dragon Design Concept, Jeep is now unveiling the new 2014 Wrangler Dragon Edition.
The new Jeep Wrangler Dragon, said spokesman Patrick Hespen, will be a limitedproduction special edition, available in Jeep show- rooms in North America this fall.
“When we introduced the Jeep Wrangler Dragon Design Concept last year we received tremendously positive feedback,” said Mike Manley, president and CEO – Jeep Brand. “Our loyal Jeep enthusiasts asked us to build this unique Wrangler, and we are delivering exactly what they’ve asked for.”
The dragon symbolizes strength and power and is an inspirational character normally associated with royalty and good fortune, Hespen said. It was these characteristics that inspired the upscale design of the Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition.
Based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara, the Dragon Edition has numerous unique exterior and interior styling cues consumers will appreciate, said Hespen.
The Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition is painted black with a black body-color threepiece hardtop. From there, the designers incorporated numerous bronze satin gloss details found inside the front grille slats, headlamp surrounds and on the Jeep badging. The unique 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are matte black with a satin bronze high-gloss outer edge, Hespen said.
The exterior also features gloss-black appliques on the front and rear bumpers, and a dark charcoal dragon decal that starts on the hood and runs along the driver’s side of the vehicle. Final exterior touches include a Mopar fuel-filler door and a black spare tire cover with dragon decal.
The black-and-bronze theme continues inside with heated black Nappa leather seating surfaces with satin bronze dragon scale on the outer bolster surfaces, center console armrest and steering wheel.
Other interior touches include high-gloss black instrument panel bezels and door handles and satin bronze accent trim on the steering wheel spokes and passenger-side dashboard grab handle, Hespen said. Finishing the interior modifications are matching bronze bound floor mats and a unique dragon graphic
