A new Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition soon will be available in North America, adding a fourth special-edition Wrangler to the 2014 model lineup.

The automaker introduced the model last month at the Frankfurt Auto Show as a Europe-only special edition. At the time, Jeep said there were no plans to sell the Polar Edition here in the U.S., but the company’s plans apparently changed rather quickly.

The Polar Edition, announced Wednesday, comes in three chilled colors and has a bevy of what Chrysler says are Antarctic-inspired styling cues. Fittingly, heated seats are also standard. Like all Wranglers, the Polar Edition will be built in Toledo.

Jeep says the new special edition should be in U.S. showrooms in November with a starting price of $33,490, including destination fees.

For buyers looking for something less glacial, the other 2014 special editions are the Wrangler Freedom Edition, Wrangler Dragon Edition, and Wrangler Rubicon X.
