Powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 285 hp and 260 ft.-lbs. of torque mated to a six-speed manual or an available five-speed automatic transmission, the Polar Edition is equipped with the Dana 30 front axle and the Dana 44 rear axle. The Command-Trac NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio is standard, just like the Trac-Lok anti-spin rear differential with an available electronic locking differential.
