A new 'Apex Special Edition' of the original Jeep that delivers unmatched open-air fun and freedom with the ability to go anywhere, do anything will be available in dealerships later this month.

The Jeep® brand goes to new heights to create a limited edition Jeep Wrangler package, catching the eye of those who seek to be different. A new "Apex Special Edition" of the original Jeep that delivers unmatched open-air fun and freedom with the ability to go anywhere, do anything will be available in dealerships later this month and on display at the Chicago Auto Show opening this week.

"The Jeep Wrangler offers a lot of fun to a very diverse group of customers," said Tom Marinelli, Vice President, Chrysler/Jeep Global Brand Center, DaimlerChrysler Corporation. "The Apex Special Edition adds a fresh new look to the successful Jeep Wrangler X model with an eye catching exterior and unique features that will set it apart and capture the intrigue of those who seek to be a bit different."

A unique strobe hood graphic and chromed steel wheels set off the limited edition Jeep Wrangler Apex. Offered in new Bright Silver Metallic, as well as Patriot Blue and Black, this new model features Cognac Ultra-Hide seats and a free stereo/CD combination with seven speakers. The seven speaker system includes two instrument panel tweeters, two dashboard speakers, two overhead Sport Bar speakers and a center console subwoofer.

Starting at just $20,285 including destination, the Jeep Wrangler Apex is based on the successful Wrangler X model. New for the 2002 model year, Jeep Wrangler X model expanded the scope of Wrangler, attracting a younger buyer in search of affordability as well as power in the 4.0-liter engine. Jeep Wrangler Apex, like the Wrangler X model, features the powerful 4.0-liter engine with 190 horsepower and 235 lb.-ft. of torque with a standard manual transmission.

I have had my Apex since January and enjoy everything about it! I have a 2 ft lift on it and lots of chrome that compliments the bright silver metalic color on the body. I receive a lot of compliments where ever I go. An example is where I work, a player for the Atlanta Falcons complimented it and teased when he asked how much I would sell it for. I told him he could afford to buy his own but I would allow him to copy mine ;)

I just bought a 2002 Apex tonight and was at first, appaulled by the tan seats, but yet, it is still a jeep and I am looking forward to years of fun with it. Knowing now that it was a limited edition, makes the tan seats and over-the-top hood decals a little easier to stomach.

Happy trails,
David, New Hampshire, USA

I just bought my first Jeep, a silver Apex. Someone may have ordered this one with alot of X options, but most of the Sport options are there. Bigger 225 tires, hard and soft tops, running boards. No air, fog lights, or tow hooks, though. I'll use it as a daily driver, so the leather seats and upgraded radio will be welcome.

I bought a bright silver metalic wrangler"Apex" last year and enjoy it. I did wind up peeling off the hood decals due to my enjoyment of washing and waxing a smooth hood.

Obviously targeted at someone else. I'm looking forward to the Rubicon, but the dealer tells me it is delayed to end of 2002 for first shipments (limited) and you won't be able to order it the way you want it until next year!

The Wrangler X that I looked at had a Dana 35C with a Detroit Locker or a TruTrac locking differential, in the rear only. I'd wait for the Wrangler Rubicon; the Apex is just more fluff.

Nice, but I don't think you can get the Dana 44
rear axle on the Wrangler X (that is the model
the Apex is supposed to be based on). With
the chrome wheels, hood decal and special
seats, this amounts to nothing more than an
appearance package.
