Jeep Wraps Itself in the Flag with 'Freedom'-Trimmed Wranglers


To celebrate our nation's 236th birthday and the troops who defend our sovereignty, Jeep has issued a pair of limited-edition Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models.

The Freedom models build off the base 2012 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Sport trim, and they come with features like fog lights, steering-wheel-mounted controls and Bluetooth connectivity.

The model also upgrades to the Rubicon's 17-inch alloy wheels and has a gray-painted grille and bumpers, along with body-colored wheel arches and side steps. Speaking of exterior colors, the Wrangler Freedom is available only in (you guessed it) Deep Cherry Red, Bright White and True Blue. Power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry and a leather-wrapped steering wheel also come standard.


To ramp up the patriotism, Freedom edition models also come with "Oscar Mike" decals — military parlance for "on the move" — along the body, and a military-inspired star decal on the hood with matching embroidery on the front seats.

In the spirit of the Fourth of July, Jeep will donate $250 to military charities, including Fisher House Foundation and the I Support Foundation , for every Freedom edition it sells.

The 2012 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Freedom editions are on sale now for $28,165 and $30,670, respectively. Pricing doesn't include a $925 destination fee.
