It’ll be Jeep’s second model to wear its Desert Rated badge. Earlier this year, Jeep introduced the Gladiator Mojave – a desert-focused package of goodies for the pickup. It was also the first Jeep to wear the brand’s Desert Rated badge, which joins Jeep’s coveted Trail Rated one. Right now, the Gladiator Mojave is the only Jeep in the lineup to wear the Desert Rated badge, though that could change. A new report from MoparInsiders says the badge could find its way onto the Wrangler’s fender.
According to “sources close to MoparInsiders,” Jeep will add the Mojave trim to the Wrangler for the 2021 model year, and that includes the Desert Rated logo, too. The Wrangler should get many of the same off-road upgrades that the Gladiator received. That should consist of the 2.5-inch (6.35-centimeter) Fox internal bypass shocks with external reservoirs, the half-inch (1.27-centimeter) wider track, and a one-inch (2.54-centimeter) increase in ride height.
