Jeep Wrangler Islander

After a hiatus stretching more than 20 years, the special edition Wrangler Islander model returns for 2010. As was the case before, the Islander is mostly a cosmetic package, and adds a unique Surf Blue paint color. A "Tiki Bob" logo is placed on the hood, and is embroidered into the seatbacks (which also sport Surf Blue inserts). The Islander package is available on all Wrangler models, and adds approximately $1120 to a standard Wrangler model.

From the official press release:

After more than 20 years, the unique Islander theme returns to Jeep.

The limited-edition Jeep Wrangler Islander is available on Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited 4x4 models. Based on the Wrangler Sport model, the Islander's unique beach theme conveys open-air fun at first and every glance.

Jeep Wrangler Islander is featured in unique Surf Blue Pearl Coat, and is also available in Stone White Clear Coat, Bright Sliver Metallic Clear Coat and Brilliant Black Crystal Clear Coat.

Other exterior features include an Islander "Tiki Bob" decal on the hood with latitude and longitude coordinates that represent an actual location relating to the "Islander" theme of the vehicle, blackside steps and popular Moab 17-inch wheels shod with 32-inch tires.

Inside, Islander's seats are Dark Gray with Surf Blue inserts, blue stitching and an embroidered Islander "Tiki Bob" logo adorning the seat back. Blue stitching also has been added to the leather-wrapped steering wheel, with Mopar® rubber floor mats completing the beach theme.

The Jeep Wrangler Islander option package is available at a U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $1,120.
