Wrangler Wednesday: 100K hours of preparation spent on Mopar parts for the all-new Jeep ® Wrangler

The engineers and designers who worked on the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler dedicated countless hours to creating a vehicle that carries on the tradition, heritage and capabilities of the iconic vehicle.

Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar) – FCA, reveals a selection of the more than 200 parts and accessories Mopar will offer for the all-new Jeep Wrangler.

Additionally, the team at Jeep and Mopar also invested 100,000 hours into the planning, design, engineering, testing and validation of parts and accessories for the all-new Wrangler.

“The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most versatile and customized vehicles in the industry,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA. “We worked with the Jeep brand, engineers and designers to create an exclusive line of parts and accessories that perfectly match the new Jeep Wrangler, delivering unique functionality, style and factory-backed quality.”

Devoting tens of thousands of hours to planning and development of the more than 200 new Jeep Performance Parts and accessories proved beneficial as customers were able to purchase almost all items when the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler arrived in dealerships.

Having these parts and accessories available when the new Jeep vehicles arrived in dealerships was important because 98% of Jeep Wranglers are typically outfitted with at least one Mopar product. These range from winches to road fenders, and are not available from anyone else.

“They are made by the same designers and engineers who made the new Jeep Wrangler, which of course means they have a perfect fit and finish,” said Gorlier, of the parts built specifically for the all-new Jeep Wrangler. “Our Mopar parts undergo the same extreme testing as the vehicle itself.”

Mike Manley, head of Jeep brand, added that part of the Wrangler redesign was to stay “true to the Wrangler’s soul,” which includes its versatility and its legendary 4×4 capability.
