From a Chrysler press release

In order to highlight the most adventurous soul and the legendary 4x4 capability of the iconic Jeep Wrangler, Jeep introduces in Frankfurt the all-new Arctic special-edition model.

The grueling and demanding environments of the arctic offer the type of terrain the legendary Jeep Wrangler was engineered to conquer. Based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara model, the Arctic’s winter theme is immediately recognizable. The new special edition features exclusive styling cues. The Arctic badge and decal recall the Yeti, the legendary creature that according to folk tradition lives in the uncontaminated nature of the extreme North.

With unique black 17-inch wheels, original Mopar® accessories and an exclusive interior enhanced by distinctive colors and details, Jeep Wrangler Arctic is powered by the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 petrol engine matched with the automatic five-speed transaxle or by the 2.8-liter turbo diesel powertrain paired with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.

The new Arctic model will be introduced in European Jeep dealerships in the first quarter of 2012 and will be available for Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited.

"transaxle" ? What the? I guess I missed something.
Is there a meaning for "transaxle" other then the combination of axel and transmission? I guess I better climb under my wrangler.
I didn't think it had a "transaxle"...

Saw one of these on a dealer's forecourt yesterday. Looked pretty tacky. Just another sticker package. Why can't Jeep stick to what it does best rather than pandering to those who want bling but have no real use for the most wonderful off road vehicle in the world.

THANK GOD! That's one less cheap Jeep sticker, plaque, and embroidery package for the U.S.!!

Offering the black wheels as a factory option would sure be nice, though!
