As early as August, the Jeep® brand introduced the limited edition Tuscadero (PHP) exterior paint. Tuscadero exterior color was the most popular special edition color for the 2021 model. Jeep then reintroduced the effective color for a short while for the 2022 models, before orders closed in December.
With that said, Jeep Mexico has now announced that it will bring a new special edition with the strong pink color to the Mexican market. Jeep will ship 100 units of what the American adventure brand calls “2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Tuscadero Sky Freedom Edition”. Now, that’s a mouthful!
Based on the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, the Rubicon Tuscadero Sky Freedom Edition offers unrivaled off-road capabilities with 4 × 4 Command-Trac® and Rock-Trac® 4 × 4 systems, the latest generation of Dana axles, electronic locking differentials Tru -Lock front and rear , off-road tires, Rock Rails crash arches in steel and steel sliding plates, and a unique hood with functional Power Dome valves.
It retains the legendary seven-compartment grille with a modern look. The outer grilles cross the headlights and are a tribute to the Jeep CJ. LED headlights and fog lights provide bright white light and contribute to Wrangler’s distinctive look. It has familiar warning lights that form a halo around the outer perimeter of the headlights, and front turn signals located on the front of the fenders.
The Sky Freedom part of the name comes from the standard Sky One-Touch® Power Top. It allows passengers to open or close the Wrangler’s roof at the touch of a button. The power peak can be used at speeds up to 60 mph (37 kmph).
Rubicon Tuscadero Sky Freedom Edition’s interior retains its exclusive style, versatility and comfort. The Jeep-inspired center console has a clean, sculpted design that complements the instrument panel. A hand-wrapped instrument panel shows soft surfaces with bold seams. Functional elements such as air conditioning and volume controls, USB ports and the Stop-Start System (ESS) button have been designed for quick recognition and easy access from the driver or front passenger position. The ventilation openings are contoured by a platinum chrome frame which gives it a premium yet robust appearance.
Jeep’s functionality and versatility are improved on the center console with silver metal accents. The center console houses the gear selector, gearbox and parking brake. The gear lever, handles and infotainment screen frame use real screws, which underlines the use of genuine construction methods.
The instrument panel has a 7-inch thin film transistor (TFT) screen. The 7-inch TFT screen allows the driver to configure the information displayed in more than 100 different ways, including music, tire pressure or a digital speed indicator. Buttons integrated in the steering wheel allow you to control the sound system, voice and speed functions without taking your hands off the steering wheel at any time.
The Rubicon Tuscadero Sky Freedom Edition also includes the well-known 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C infotainment system with navigation. Two USB ports on the front and two more within easy reach of the rear passengers connect to the “media” center. Several 12-volt extra electrical outlets located throughout the Wrangler’s interior.
Rubicon Tuscadero Sky Freedom Edition has exclusive dark brown saddle seats with 6-way manual adjustment of the driver’s seat, 2-way manual lumbar adjustment and a 60/40 split folding rear seat.
Under the hood of the Rubicon Tuscadero Sky Freedom Edition is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque with efficient mild-hybrid (mHEV) eTorque technology coupled to a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
Features of the mHEV eTorque system include automatic stop / start, electronically assisted steering, extended injection shut-off, gear handling, intelligent battery charging and regenerative braking. Both the engine and the fuel flow can be switched off during stops, downhills or deceleration phases.
Passenger safety and security have been crucial in the development of the new Jeep Wrangler, which is reflected in the more than 75 active and passive safety components available. These include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic control, ParkView Backup camera with dynamic grid, electronic stability control (ESC) with electronic roll damping and four front-mounted airbags.
The special edition of 100 units Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Tuscadero Sky Freedom will have a price of $ 1,292,900 pesos (or about $ 60,728 USD).
