The Fourth: Jeep Honors Our Heroes With a Special Edition Wrangler
It's the fourth of July, and while we know you may inevitably blow off your fingers with some illegal fireworks, we want to take a minute to remember what all those fireworks are really for; honoring the troops that have fought and are currently fighting for what we believe. With this, Chrysler and Jeep have taken the time to put together a special edition tribute, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Freedom Edition. As far back as 70 years, Jeep has had a long standing relationship with the military providing "light reconnaissance vehicles" that have been attributed with helping win a world war. Military service men and women's lives have depended on the awesomeness of the Jeep.
It thankfully doesn't come with a gaudy American flag wrap, but the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Freedom Edition keeps it simple and still sends a message. Available in red, white or blue paint jobs, this Jeep pays tribute through special edition star decals and military "Oscar Mike" badges (stands for "On the move"), Mineral-gray front grille and bumper inserts, and Mineral-gray Wranger Rubicon 17" wheels.
Jeep says that for each special edition sold, they will donate $250 to "important charitable organizations that benefit current and returning military members." The price of 'Freedom' starts at $28,165 for Wrangler two-door models, and $30,670 for four door, both of which going towards a noble cause.
