The Wrangler Dragon is based on the China-market Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. It’s covered in black paint with bronze and gold details, most notably, the silhouette of a dragon. Other splashes of color include the grille slats, headlight surrounds and Jeep badges trimmed in gold.
The rest of the exterior gets black highlights and a tone-on-tone dragon decal the runs down the side of the Jeep. There is a dragon motif on the carbon-fiber insulator under the hood and on the black spare-tire cover. Mopar added a unique fuel-filler door and a black-finish LED lighting package with headlights, fog lights, turn signals and tail lamps.
The Dragon also gets unique 18-inch wheels in matte black with a bronze and gold outer edge and 35-inch off-road tires.
For now the Wrangler Dragon is only a concept, but if demand is great enough Jeep says it could become a production model.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 $189,750 in China
That’s how much Chrysler’s Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 sells for in China. The price, inflated by import duties, is more than three times the U.S. cost of $54,470. While there’s surging demand for SUVs in China, three decades of changing ownership at Jeep have left it without any local production.
Jeep sales in the country rose 63 percent last year to 19,013 vehicles – less than three days’ worth of GM’s sales in China.
