It is not every day that you see a Jeep Wrangler - with an Asian flair - but you will starting this Fall as Jeep brand announced on Sept. 12, that a special edition 2014 Jeep Wrangler Dragon will be available through dealers on a limited production basis.
The Jeep Wrangler Dragon comes to North America following a unique Wrangler Dragon Design Concept competition at the Beijing International Automotive Exposition last year. The Wrangler Dragon shown was widely acclaimed by many and particularly throughout the Jeep enthusiast community. On the heels of this positive feedback, Jeep is introducing the new 2014 Wrangler Dragon Edition.
In a distinctive Gloss Black exterior with Bronze accents including the signature "Dragon" artwork, this new limited production version of the concept Wrangler Dragon catches the eye immediately - much like it did when shown in Beijing.
“When we introduced the Jeep Wrangler Dragon Design Concept last year, we received tremendously positive feedback,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Our loyal Jeep enthusiasts asked us to build this unique Wrangler, and we are delivering exactly what they’ve asked for. The new 2014 Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition boasts a stunning, unique, upscale design with styling cues that make it unlike any Wrangler ever seen before.”
The dragon symbolizes strength and power and is a character normally associated with royalty and good fortune. It was these characteristics that inspired the upscale design of the Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition.
Based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara, the Dragon Edition has numerous unique exterior and interior styling cues consumers will appreciate. Available only in Black and as a four-door Unlimited model , the Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition features Bronze Satin Gloss trim inside and out.
Taking a closer look, there is no question that this is the Wrangler Dragon either from the outside or inside.
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition is painted Black with a black body-color three-piece hard top. From there, the designers incorporated numerous Bronze Satin Gloss details found inside the front grille slats, headlamp surrounds and on the Jeep badging.
The unique 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are matte black with a Satin Bronze high-gloss outer edge.
The exterior also features gloss-black appliques on the front and rear bumpers, and a Dark Charcoal dragon decal that starts on the hood and runs along the driver’s side of the vehicle.
