Back in September, we gave you the details about a couple of Jeep® Wrangler special edition models that were making an appearance for the 2020 model year. One of those, the “2020 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition” we couldn’t talk about until now since the Jeep® brand is pulling off official details this month to coincide with the Veterans Day holiday.
The Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition returns to the lineup after a model-year hiatus and is appearing on the Wrangler (JL) for the very first time. The Freedom Edition is a tribute to U.S. military members, with military-themed exterior and interior design cues.
Based on the Sport S trim-level, the Freedom Edition features a unique look to the vehicle’s exterior with an American flag placed above the Jeep brand logo on both the driver and passenger side near the front fenders, a new hard “Oscar Mike” badge (a military phrase that translates to “On the Move”) on the tailgate, as well as a “Oscar Mike” military star decal on the hood, a black premium Sunrider soft-top with deep-tint rear windows, Satin Carbon-painted 17-inch aluminum wheels with all-terrain tires, and side steps.
Inside, the Freedom Edition receives McKinley black cloth seats with black leather bolsters, featuring Light Tungsten accent stitching, “Oscar Mike” embossed on the seatbacks in Light Tungsten accent stitching, and on the steering wheel, doors, seats and front armrest. As well as unique aluminum data plate is located on the rear swing gate, specific to the Freedom Edition.
“We are thrilled to bring the Wrangler Freedom model back to the Jeep lineup as a tribute to active and retired members of the U.S. military,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – North America. “The Jeep brand has a long military history and the new Wrangler Freedom model is a small, but important way we can honor those who have and continue to serve their country.”
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition will be offered in a choice of ten colors which include, Firecracker Red, Bright White, Ocean Blue, Black, Granite Crystal, Sting-Gray, Billet, Punk’n, Hellayella, and Bikini. The Freedom Edition models will be initially launched in the Firecracker Red, Bright White, and Ocean Blue (good ole’ red, white, and blue) for the first part of the production run, with the other colors joining later.
Freedom Editions will be available in both Wrangler Sport S and Wrangler Unlimited Sport S configurations. Pricing for the Freedom Edition begins at a U.S. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $34,190 for the two-door model and $37,690 for the Unlimited four-door model. The Jeep brand will make a $250 donation to the United Service Organizations (USO) with every Wrangler Freedom Edition sold.
