New 2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition Honors Military
Given that Jeep began its existence as a maker of army vehicles back in 1941, it’s a natural fit that this builder of serious off-road vehicles has created a version of the Wrangler that pays tribute to the U.S. military, and launches it the same week that our nation celebrates 236 years of hard-fought freedom.
JEEP WRANGLER FREEDOM EDITION DETAILS
Available in two-door or Unlimited four-door configuration, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition is based on the Wrangler Sport trim level, and packs a 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine combined with the ability to clamber across practically any kind of terrain.
Available in your choice between Deep Cherry Red, Bright White or the exclusive True Blue paint seen in the photos, the Wrangler Freedom Edition features Mineral Gray wheels and trim, and is festooned with a bold star on the hood and unique badges and trim pieces on the fenders and inside the cabin. Dark tinted windows, Uconnect hands-free connectivity, and other upgrades are included in the $28,165 base price. (Unlimited models start at $30,670).
JEEP DONATES A PORTION OF PRICE TO CHARITY
Buying a Wrangler Freedom Edition is a great way to show your patriotism, but more important, Jeep will donate $250 of each Freedom Edition sale, split evenly to Fisher House Foundation and the I Support Foundation, charities that benefit members of the U.S. military and their families. Better yet, qualified buyers can get an extra $500 off in the form of a “Military Bonus Consumer Cash” rebate.
SPEEDY MOMMY SAYS…
Is the Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition fuel-efficient? No. Is it safe? Side-impact protection is problematic. Is it comfortable? Not one bit. Is it fun? God, yes.
