Jeep® Wrangler Goes to New Heights with 'Apex' Special Edition
Auburn Hills, Mich. -- The Jeep® brand goes to new heights to create a limited edition Jeep Wrangler package, catching the eye of those who seek to be different. A new "Apex Special Edition" of the original Jeep that delivers unmatched open-air fun and freedom with the ability to go anywhere, do anything will be available in dealerships later this month and on display at the Chicago Auto Show opening this week.
"The Jeep Wrangler offers a lot of fun to a very diverse group of customers," said Tom Marinelli, Vice President, Chrysler/Jeep Global Brand Center, DaimlerChrysler Corporation. "The Apex Special Edition adds a fresh new look to the successful Jeep Wrangler X model with an eye catching exterior and unique features that will set it apart and capture the intrigue of those who seek to be a bit different."
A unique strobe hood graphic and chromed steel wheels set off the limited edition Jeep Wrangler Apex. Offered in new Bright Silver Metallic, as well as Patriot Blue and Black, this new model features Cognac Ultra-Hide seats and a free stereo/CD combination with seven speakers. The seven speaker system includes two instrument panel tweeters, two dashboard speakers, two overhead Sport Bar speakers and a center console subwoofer.
Starting at just $20,285 including destination, the Jeep Wrangler Apex is based on the successful Wrangler X model. New for the 2002 model year, Jeep Wrangler X model expanded the scope of Wrangler, attracting a younger buyer in search of affordability as well as power in the 4.0-liter engine. Jeep Wrangler Apex, like the Wrangler X model, features the powerful 4.0-liter engine with 190 horsepower and 235 lb.-ft. of torque with a standard manual transmission."
I don't seem to remember saying it came from Jeep's website; and yes, I can quote the origination. I was forwarding information from elsewhere as I clearly stated, not making claims that need backing up.
If you are unable to locate a two day old press release using the internet, then I would suggest that your net-skills could do with some improvement (along with your manners).
To anyone else who cares where the PR came from, just ask....... but with a little more tact than Mr/Ms anonymous02 if possible...... and I will be happy to quote the URL.
I think anon was making a polite inquiry and was just wondering whom the source was. There was no author or a link, and asking a simple question as anon did wasn't out of the question especially on a board where people exchange information. So…was your source Motor Trend?
I'd prefer to see it reposted as a link myself since I think you're over the line for "fair use" of copyrighted material, which is prohibited by our Member Agreement (which keeps the owners of the copyrights off our backs).
