Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Debuts at SEMA, Entering Limited Production

Jeep and Mopar used the SEMA show to reveal a special version of the Wrangler dubbed the Red Rock, and unlike most of SEMA’s wild creations, this one will actually go into production. Well, sort of: Just 50 units of the Jeep Wrangler Red Rock will be built.

Bearing very little in common with the Red Rock Responder concept shown earlier this year, the Jeep Wrangler Red Rock is based on the Wrangler Unlimited’s tough Rubicon Hard Rock edition. To that Mopar and Jeep add Dana 44 front and rear solid axles, a vented hood, rock rails, and red front and rear recovery hooks. A two-inch suspension lift kit, 17-inch wheels with 35-inch BFG K02 off-road tires, LED head- and foglights, a Warn Rubicon winch, and CB radio add more functionality. Inside, look for brown Katzkin leather seats with silver stitching, as well as a serialized “Red Rock” passenger-side grab handle.

Jeep chose to build only 50 production versions of the Red Rock model to pay tribute to the fact that 2016 is the 50th anniversary of its annual Jeep Easter Safari off-road adventure in Moab. While pricing for the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Red Rock has yet to be announced, a standard Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock will set buyers back $42,290. Expect the special-edition model’s add-on parts to bump that figure up by a few thousand dollars when the SUV arrives next year.
