Kicking off the opening of the 2020 Chicago Auto Show this weekend, Mopar® introduced a customized version of its new limited-edition 2020 Jeep® Wrangler JPP 20 featuring a wide array of Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) targeted to the off-road enthusiast.
“The new limited-edition Jeep Wrangler JPP 20 is a ‘check-all-the boxes’ off-road vehicle for enthusiasts,” said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care for FCA–North America. “We loaded the Jeep brand’s iconic rock crawler with factory-backed and quality-tested, authentic Jeep Performance Parts specifically designed and engineered to tackle the toughest conditions.”
New 2020 Jeep® Wrangler JPP 20
Based on the four-door Jeep Wrangler, the Wrangler JPP 20 carries a range of quality-tested parts and accessories from the JPP portfolio.
In addition to high-strength, full-aluminum doors, JPP steel tube doors and a new mirror kit are standard equipment. Tube doors, along with a mesh sun bonnet that provides shade for passengers, deliver an open-air feel. Standard JPP rock rails are Durabull®-coated and made of heavy-gauge steel to provide superior protection and durability.
The JPP steel front bumper and skid plate are designed to take on almost anything the trail can throw at it. Wide enough to provide fender protection but narrower than the stock version, the powder-coated black bumper includes D-rings for extra towing capability. Completely waterproof to ensure reliable operation during water fording and other adverse conditions, the JPP Rubicon Winch includes 100 feet of WARN® Spydura synthetic rope.
The Trailer-Tow and Heavy Duty Electrical Group includes four auxiliary switches, a high-capacity 240-amp alternator and a Class II hitch receiver with four- and seven-pin adapters.
The Jeep Wrangler JPP 20 will be available in Ocean Blue or White. Additional standard exterior features include:
- American Flag hood graphic
- Blacked-out fender vents and fuel door
- JPP graphic decal on the passenger-side quarter panel
- Laser-etched, forged-aluminum JPP badge on the driver-side fender and on the rear swing-gate assembly
On the rear of the vehicle, the JPP Swing Gate Hinge Reinforcement allows for a larger spare tire to be mounted on the swing gate. The reinforcement is powder-coated black and works with the production hinge for easy installation. A JPP CHMSL (Center High-Mount Stop Lamp) Relocation Kit mounts the third brake light in the center of the spare tire.
Inside the cabin, luxurious Katzkin Tuscany leather seats include an embroidered JPP logo on each front seatback. Standard Mopar all-weather floor mats are injection molded and designed with deep drain channels, rigid sidewalls and advanced reservoir systems that help prevent liquids from leaking onto the floor. Front mats feature a patented drain plug that covers floor drain holes and allows liquid to drain without mat removal. Behind the second-row seats, the Mopar Cargo Tray Kit provides full protective coverage of the cargo area and seat backs.
The standard Technology Group includes a 7-inch instrument-panel cluster, fourth-generation Uconnect® system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available on its 7-inch touchscreen. In addition, Rear Park Assist1 and Blind-Spot Monitoring2 are also standard.
A full array of fuel-efficient powertrain options is available for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20, including:
- 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine (270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque) with Engine Start Stop (ESS) or mild-hybrid eTorque-assist technology
- 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine (260 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque) with Engine Start Stop (ESS)
- 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine (285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque) with Engine Start Stop (ESS) or mild-hybrid eTorque assist technology
Each available engine option features a standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
Production of the Wrangler JPP 20 will be limited for the 2020 model year. Dealer orders open in the second quarter and vehicles will arrive in dealerships this summer. Pricing will be announced closer to the launch date.
