Wrangler Hard Rock, better stereo

by David Zatz on

As predicted by Allpar, Jeep is now throwing in a standard tool kit with Wranglers to help buyers take off the doors and roof.  Buyers also get a standard eight-speaker audio system with a new sound bar, and an optional Premium Alpine Audio Package that includes nine Alpine speakers, a new subwoofer (now under the cargo floor), and a 552-watt amplifier.


The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock is the 2014 Rubicon X with the new Alpine Premium Audio and a new low-gloss black grille with high-gloss black inserts.

The Willys Wheeler and Freedom Edition return; Jeep donates $250 for each Wrangler Freedom Edition to the United Service Organization (USO).  Allpar sources report that mail carriers can opt for a right-hand-drive Sport Unlimited at $36,190, around $5,000 more than the usual Sport Unlimited.

New paints are Baja Yellow, Copper Brown, Firecracker Red, Sunset Orange and Tank. Anvil, Billet Silver, Black, Bright White and Hydro Blue continue.

Wrangler Sport gets an optional black steel and 31-inch Dueler tire package, supplementing the standard Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo2 245/75/R16 tires and black painted 16-inch steel wheels.
