Jeep® Wrangler a Repeat Winner of Two Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com Best Resale Value Awards

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Jeep® Wrangler receives two 2013 Best Resale Value Awards: Top 10 and Compact Utility Vehicle
  • Third consecutive year Wrangler wins Best Resale Value Award, second year for Top 10
  • 2013 Jeep Wrangler adds comfort and convenience features with new seats, auto-dimming mirror with LED map lighting, new interior lighting, available Alpine speakers and a premium Tire Pressure Monitoring system
  • Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition offers added level of off-road capability and celebrates historic Jeep off-roading destination

For the third consecutive year, Jeep® Wrangler has been named Best Resale Value in its class by Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. Wrangler also landed on KBB.com's Top 10 list for the second year in a row.

"The iconic Wrangler leads the Jeep brand's residual values," said Eric Ibara, director of residual consulting for Kelley Blue Book. "Not only does Jeep Wrangler command a significant amount as a used vehicle but it does so consistently year after year. Not surprisingly, Wrangler again finds itself on Kelley Blue Book's Top 10 list."

Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book® Official Residual Value Guide, determined by a skilled staff of automotive analysts. These prestigious awards honor vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership.

"Jeep has continued to make the Wrangler better in every way, and we're delighted that it has once again been recognized by Kelley Blue Book and consumers alike as a tremendous value," said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "Wrangler sales for the year are up nearly 20 percent because customers know they're getting ultimate capability in a more fuel-efficient package suitable for everyday driving, that will retain its value for years to come."

2013 Jeep Wrangler

With the introduction of an all-new powertrain for 2012, Jeep Wrangler features dramatically improved on-road performance combined with even more off-road prowess. Now, with new features added to the interior, the 2013 Wrangler adds improved comfort to its long list of benefits.

Passengers are now greeted by new front and rear seats, interior courtesy lighting found under the instrument panel as well as the cup holder areas, an auto-dimming electro chromatic mirror featuring LED map lights for front passengers, an available Alpine premium speaker system and an optional premium Tire Pressure Monitor system can give read-outs for each individual tire.

Also new for 2013 is a revised soft top on Unlimited models that is easier to raise and lower, especially when operated by one person, and an available premium soft top. Available on all models, the new, premium soft top uses an easier to clean, upscale material. Consisting of three layers, the new top also helps reduce interior noise and is easier to fasten.

To kick off the 2013 model year, Jeep Wrangler has a limited edition model named after one of the most popular off-road destinations in the world, Moab, Utah. The Jeep Wrangler Moab edition is equipped with hardware popular with off-roading enthusiasts such as gloss black 17-inch Rubicon alloy wheels running new 245/75R17 Goodyear Silent Armor off-road tires, Trak-Lok anti-spin rear differential with an available electronic rear locking differential, a Mopar power dome hood, premium rock rails, black fuel filler door and tail lamp guards and matching premium black front and rear off-road bumpers.

Interior modifications include black or saddle premium leather seats with black stitching, "Moab" embossed instrument panel grab handle, Mopar slush mats and Iron Gray trim on the vent rings, grab handles and steering wheel spokes.
