2019 Jeep Wrangler Moab order guide reveals plush, spendy trim

2019 Jeep Wrangler Moab order guide reveals plush, spendy trim

At the end of last year, members at the JLWrangler Forum

first discovered a Moab sticker kit

in the

Fiat Chrysler

parts catalog. A few weeks ago, the same forum found

a Moab edition 2018 Wrangler

near

FCA

HQ. The previous JK series

Jeep Wrangler

offered a Moab edition, based on the Sahara platform, but priced and positioned between the Sahara and Rubicon trims. JLWrangler Forum members have now found the order guide for the new Moab edition, showing the same build philosophy but a bigger price. Only available on the four-door Unlimited bodystyle with the 3.6-liter V6 and eight-speed automatic, the option is said to retail for $51,200 before a $1,495 destination fee. That’s $52,695 out-the-door.

That puts you at $8,200 over the price of a Rubicon with the eight-speed automatic, but the Moab has a different aim. As

Jeep’s

website says, the Sahara targets those who want “a clean, polished look that’s at home wherever you take it,” whereas the Rubicon is for those who need to get an extreme kind of dirty. The Moab shoots the middle, going after Sahara buyers who want their additional premium equipment wrapped in real-deal rugged looks.

To work that effect, outside there’ll be the dual-vent Rubicon hood, LED lighting, a steel front bumper, black tow hooks front and back, a body-colored hardtop, and Mopar rock rails. The order guide lists hood decals, which would be a new item for the vented Rubicon unit. The Moab sits on 17-inch, low-gloss black Rubicon-style wheels instead of the standard 18-inch polished aluminum wheels with Tech Gray spokes, and 33-inch BFG Mud

Terrain

KM2 tires. That tire choice is novel, because Rubicon comes on 33-inch BGF ALL-Terrain KO2s. The Selec-Trac 4×4 system pairs with the Anti-Spin limited slip differential, both of them normally options on the Sahara.

Inside there’ll be the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system piped through a nine-speaker Alpine audio system. Comfort treats include keyless entry and remote start, Mopar hardtop headliner, leather seats and leather interior group, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Jeep throws in blind-spot monitoring with cross-path detection and the ParkSense parking assist, and for a adventurous touch, there are Mopar all-weather floor mats.
