(from Startech Press
Release) STARTECH Refines the New Jeep Wrangler
Legends are immortal and in the automotive world that is especially
true for the Jeep. Wrangler, the ‘mother’ of all off-road vehicles.
To customize the latest version of the American 4x4 and to make it
even more exclusive STARTECH (
) is developing an innovative and exclusive accessories program –
for the short wheelbase and the new long wheelbase version.
In a first step STARTECH offers custom-tailored light-alloy wheels,
some initial exterior modifications and exclusive interior options.
The polished STARTECH Monostar IV 9Jx20 light-alloy wheels attract
attention at first sight. The striking five-spoke wheels lend the
new Jeep. Wrangler a more exclusive appearance. But that’s not all:
Mounted with sporty on- and off-road tires in size 285/50 R 20 front
and back they give the SUV even more agile handling characteristics
while at the same time improving driving safety.
While the STARTECH design program for the new Wrangler is still
under development, the first stainless-steel components will be
available shortly. Sturdy tubular side guards for short and long
wheelbase models protect the rocker panels of the Jeep and partially
hide the Jeep’s frame from view. The spare wheel cover with
high-gloss stainless-steel ring adds the finishing touch.
The new Wrangler generation for the first time includes a model with
diesel engine. The STARTECH motor engineers are currently developing
the STARTECH SD 4T tuning module for the 2.8-liter (171 cu. in.)
common-rail turbodiesel engine.
STARTECH sport exhausts will soon be available for all engine and
body variants of the Jeep. The fully stainless-steel exhausts
feature one characteristic oval chrome tailpipe each on the right
and left, and produce a more sonorous engine sound, while at the
same time optimizing power yield.
The interior of the Jeep can also be upgraded stylishly with
STARTECH accessories: Highly polished scuff plates welcome driver
and passengers, and the ergonomically shaped STARTECH sport steering
wheel adds to the ambiance.
Additional customization requests can be fulfilled by the
company-own STARTECH upholstery shop. Partial and fully leather
interiors made from especially soft yet durable Mastik leather
satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.
