The Dragon is Back


Last year at the Beijing Auto Show the Dragon concept was introduced for the Jeep Wrangler and the response was so good that it will be available as a limited edition model in the U.S.

The special edition Jeep is a major nod to the Chinese culture. Chrysler said that the dragon symbolizes strength and power and is an “aspirational character normally associated with royalty.” Historians say that Chinese dragons are seen as benevolent creatures, not the monsters usually associated with Western fairy tales.

This is the most expensive model in the 2014 Wrangler line up starting at $37,090. The Wrangler is only available in black . The design includes a Dark Charcoal dragon decal that snakes along the hood and driver’s side of the vehicle. Other touches include a black spare tire cover with a dragon decal, 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and Bronze Satin Gloss exterior trim.

The cabin gets a black-and-bronze theme with Satin Bronze dragon scales on parts of the interior, including the outer seat bolsters, center console armrest and steering wheel.

The 2014 Wrangler is equipped with the 285-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine.

A set of heavy duty Rugged Ridge skid plates protect the underside of the Jeep from sharp rocks while crawling around trails. An XHD modular bumper with high-clearance ends offers plenty of protection without getting the Jeep hung up on obstacles. A Rugged Ridge 8500-pound performance winch ensures the big Jeep can pull itself out of any sticky situation. Since most Jeep enthusiast love playing in the great outdoors, a Rugged Ridge roof rack offers plenty of space to mount a kayak or mountain bike as well as HID lights to illuminate the darkest nights. To give the Jeep a little more power under the hood, the Orange Crusher Jeep was outfitted with a Rugged Ridge cat-back dual exhaust system.

Just in case the Orange Crusher Jeep needs to ford any deep rivers or mud pits, a modular XHD snorkel system will ensure it can make the trek across. As in any off-road truck, getting a flat is inevitable and part of the cost of playing in the dirt which is why the Orange Crusher features a heavy duty rear mounted jack.

MT Sees if the New Jeep Wrangler Can Compete with the Classic Willy CJ-3A on the Farm

Once the Second World War was over, the American vehicle manufacturing industry was still tooled up for production of military equipment, and while there were some factories that were able to quickly adapt to peace-time production, others were bigger and therefore their moves were cumbersome.

However, there was another category which is worth mentioning here – those companies whose products did find civilian uses with minimal modifications, like the iconic Willys Jeep, which got stripped out and sold to farmers who would plough the fields with it, or spread seeds.

Motor Trend wants to see if that purposefully-utilitarian philosophy to building off-roaders has been preserved until the modern day, or in other words, if a modern Jeep Wrangler can cut it on the farm. The chosen vehicle is a Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited, powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, coupled to a manual gearbox. It proves that it has more than enough power and traction to do some really hard work, and while it doesn’t have PTO (power take-off) at the back to provide drive to the more advanced farming equipment, it really isn’t bad.

But all of this text would be irrelevant without the video, which is a nice history lesson and generally quite informative, as well as also being posted below.
