Jeep's always made the New York Auto Show its home for worldwide reveals, and the 2011 show's holding to that line with the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 and this special-edition Wrangler, the Mojave.
The wheel-and-tire package gets its name from the California/Nevada desert, and the paint colors are inspired by the same--the palette's limited to a choice of tan, white and black. The seats are embroidered with lizards, which also show up on the running boards.
For the Mojave edition, the removable hardtop is painted body-color, and the Rubicon Wrangler's 32-inch wheel package is added.
As with other 2011 Jeep Wranglers, the Mojave has a new interior with higher-quality plastics, more storage, and the option for a USB port and a media center with Bluetooth streaming audio.
The Mojave trim level comes on either base or Unlimited Wranglers, and shows up in showrooms in June. The base price on short-wheelbase versions starts from $29,945 including destination.__________________________________________________________________
