2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is Jeep’s Mojave with Mojave desert base theme design. The Exterior displays a sticker that read ‘Mojave’ and describes the lizard on the hood and behind the car, the roof and fender tongue is also made with the same color as body, and side step the Sahara model.
“The Mojave Trail is known for expeditions, exploration and a rugged environment that features elevation, sand, canyons, a river crossing and hill climbs – the perfect landscape for the Jeep Wrangler,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO — Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “By creating the Jeep Wrangler Mojave, we are able to deliver another specialized vehicle that Jeep enthusiasts will love, while drawing new customers into Jeep showrooms.”
Starting with a Wrangler Sport, the exterior Mojavification involves slapping on Jeep’s handsome body-colored hardtop and fender flares in tan, white, or black—the only paints available. Jeep then adds the side steps from the Sahara model, as well as lizard decals on the hood and rearmost pillar. The Mojave dips into the pockets of another Wrangler trim, the Rubicon, for its 32-inch off-road rubber and gray 17-inch wheels. Power comes from the familiar and wheezy 202-hp, 3.8-liter V-6, and both the four-speed automatic and six-speed manual transmissions are available. (Sorry, no Pentastar or six-speed slushbox until next year, Wrangler fans.)
On the interior, the lizard appears again in the front seat. Material driftwood around AC vents, handles front passenger, side door handle, and steering wheel. While the carpets contribute to anti-Mopar mud.Mojave is available in several color choices Sahara Tan, Bright White and Black. The price is U.S. $ 29,195 for the U.S. market. Go on sale in June 2011
All-new steering-wheel controls allow the driver to operate the radio, cruise control, handsfree phone and other vehicle functions while keeping hands on the wheel. A new USB interface connects to storage devices for use with the vehicle’s Media Center, which now includes streaming Bluetooth® audio. Twelve-volt accessory outlets have been added and a new 110-volt outlet is available to provide power similar to AC outlets in the home.
In line with traditional Jeep design, hex-head bolts are utilized throughout the interior, and are used to mount a “Jeep, Since 1941″ inlay onto the new passenger grab handle. Jeep engineers increased acoustical treatment in the 2011 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, resulting in significantly reduced interior noise.
To provide a more premium appearance, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Sahara models boast an all-new, premium, body-color hardtop.
