The Trailer Tow Group, side steps, a black hardtop, and black leather seats with a Texas Trail graphic are included. Then there’s the Technology Group, which adds the a 7-inch radio and the Convenience Group.

Jeep announced the addition of two Texas trails to their exclusive Jeep Badge of Honor mobile app. This mobile app allows Jeep enthusiasts to conquer trails and earn trail badges for their Jeeps. Black Gap 4×4 trail in Big Bend National Park and Northwest OHV Park in Bridgeport, Texas are the two newest Badge of Honor trails.
