Jeep Wrangler, Renegade Get Tiki With Islander Edition

Jeep is on Island time

  • A return of the island-inspired Wranglers of days past

  • Adds graphics, new trim to two popular Jeeps


It’s barely March, but Jeep is all ready for summer. The Islander special edition is back for 2021 and this time expands to be available on the Jeep Renegade for the first time as well.

The Islander package has been an on-again, off-again special for the Jeep Wrangler, with the most notable the early 1990s version with a body kit and setting sun graphic on the doors. It was last on the Wrangler in 2011 but has returned for 2021.

On the latest Jeep Wrangler, the kit starts with a Sport S model with two or four doors, and has Command-Trac part-time 4×4 with low-range, 17-inch Rubicon wheels and Rubicon rock rails, plus a Tiki Bob hood decal. On the inside, it has a 7.0-inch Uconnect4 touch screen, dual-zone climate control, and the ceramic white mid-bolstered seats have an embroidered logo and Surf Blue accent stitching. It can be ordered with a white hardtop and an Islander Plus Package that adds grab handles, cargo liner, and Tiki Bob spare tire cover telling you it’s not a Prince Edward Islander or a Newfoundland Islander.

Based on the 2021 Renegade North 4×4, the smaller version of the Islander has Active Drive full-time AWD, 19-inch alloys, dual-pane roof (with available white-painted roof, and it gets the same Tiki Bob hood decal, embroidered seat logo, and Surf Blue accent stitching.

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Islander starts from $42,715 before destination, with a four door adding around $4,000 to the price, while the smaller 2021 Jeep Renegade Islander is $34,140. Both are on sale now
