Well I finally know what Hydro looks like. A tad darker than my Cosmos looks like.

the only thing that startles me is that ArcherAce doesn't know anything about the color... which makes me think this is odd considering he works in the jeep factory.

i have a feeling these photos that have emerged are photoshop renderings. even though that color still looks excellent.

I just wish they would have put the new bumpers from the recon prototype on it.

Like this picture but without the stinger bar

Pat stated in the 2014 information thread that this hydro was a custom paint job done somewhere outside the factory, which would be why ArcherAce didn't see it.

I don't care where it was painted, hydro is still the !

I like the color... but too bad it has to be part of some "package"

I guess someone earlier said that Hydro was only available in the Freedom pkg, maybe its only the "Polar" pkg?

Either way, I wish that they wouldn't do that. I don't like any of them. You pay more on the front end... the look is usually not that great... and probably worth less on the resale end.

Is it just me? The white on the inside of the Polar edition is hideous!

Like the color but dont want to buy the package?

Learn from the 10A group and wait till the '15's come out, they might offer the color on other models

POLAR coming to North America

Quote:
To celebrate the upcoming winter season, the Jeep brand is bringing its new Wrangler Polar Edition, which made its debut at last month's Frankfurt Motor Show, to U.S. showrooms in November.
Quote:
Polar is equipped with the Dana 30 front axle and powerful Dana 44 rear axle. Legendary Wrangler capability is achieved through the standard Command-Trac NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. In order to handle any off-road track in utmost safety, the new Wrangler Polar model comes standard with the Trac-Lok anti-spin rear differential with an available electronic locking differential.

If you like Polars, here are some dealer pics that I added to the "Hydro Blue Pearl Thread" almost two weeks ago.

I ordered my Hydro Blue Polar 2 weeks ago. Recently notified that Production is Scheduled on the tracking site. Looks like its is everything that was shown on the European photos except the spare tire cover doesn't seem to be available. And it comes with rock rails with tubular side steps as an option. My dealer wasn't really sure on that but I can swap them or buy aftermarket later. Gas engine only; no diesel...yet. The Polar is an option package for Sahara only. Rear locker is an option over the stock limited slip differential.

The 2014 Polar is a lot like the 2013 MOAB.
