Jeep is launching a host of stylish North Edition models to help take the bitter sting out of the coldest season of the year. Offered across the entire Jeep lineup, from the Compass to the Gladiator, North Edition models are not very far off from regular Jeeps, but they do offer a bundle of helpful features that set them apart from the competition and ensure the best performance possible for driving in snow, ice, and keeping the cabin warm during the winter.

What exactly does the North Edition offer above “normal" Jeeps? (But come on, is any Jeep “normal”?) From a performance standpoint, you’ll still have the legendary 4x4 capability famous for the brand. Equipment-wise, however, the North Edition offers an arsenal of standard items that can help both driver and passengers get through a cold winter day, with heated seats and a heated steering wheel being the most notable features. Power-heated mirrors are also standard along with all-weather floor-mats to contain slush and snow, and a remote start feature will warm up the Jeep before you even step outside.


“When winter weather hits, your Jeep SUV can be your best friend,” Head of Jeep Brand—FCA North America, Jim Morrison reminded us. It’s true, is there any other vehicle you’d rather tackle frosty commutes with? 

North Edition models come standard with all-wheel drive, fortified by all-season or all-terrain tires for enduring wintry conditions. Also, just in case you get stuck out in the elements, there are tow hooks and a Jeep Trail Rated kit with a tow strap, D-rings, carabiner, gloves, and a safety kit. Premium Audio Group and 8.4-inch Uconnect with five years of Sirius XM Travel Link Weather and Traffic Service also add to the list of notable standard features ensuring you’ll stay connected and entertained no matter the terrain.

On top of that, the package also includes a black three-piece hardtop, the Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle, Selec-Trac full-time four-wheel drive complete with a 2.72:1 rear-axle ratio, active noise cancellation, and a totally rad North Edition badge.

Jeep had three sample vehicles showcasing the North Edition—the Wrangler, Jeep Gladiator, and Grand Cherokee—on display at the New England International Auto Show in Boston earlier this year. A winter edition in the middle of January?! What could be better?!
