New Jeep Wrangler model supports the troops

Jeep may no longer be serving on the front lines, but now it has a truck that supports the troops back home.

With every purchase of the new Wrangler Freedom the automaker will donate $250 to military charities.

The special edition Wrangler comes in two or four-door Unlimited models and is available in either red, white or True Blue. It features military-inspired stars on the hood and sides, along with badges on the front fenders that read “Oscar Mike,” which is military-speak for “On the move.”

Inside, the seats are trimmed with star-logo embroidered high-strength fabric, silver accents are added throughout the cabin and a set of Mopar Slush Mats included in the $28,165 price (#30,670 for four-door models.)

The donations from each sale are split between the Fisher House Foundation, which assists military families in need of housing close to where their sick or injured relatives are being cared for, and the I Support Foundation that supports several other military charities and helps returning troops in find jobs on the home front.

A $500 cash allowance towards the purchase of the Wrangler is available through Chrysler’s “Military Bonus Consumer Cash Program.”
