Set to patrol the beaches of Romagna, the Wrangler JK will be performing surveillance work to ensure that tourists and residents are safe during the busy summer vacation season. Despite its surveillance role, the Wrangler is bound to draw attention as features a blue and white Carabinieri livery with red accents.

The model also has traditional police features including emergency lights, a machine gun holder, a police radio and a siren.

A 2.8-liter CRD turbodiesel engine resides under the hood and it likely produces 197 hp (147 kW / 200 PS) and 339 lb-ft (460 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an automatic transmission which sends power to a four-wheel drive system.

Besides the Wrangler, the handover ceremony featured an assortment other FCA models used by the Carabinieri. They included the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Giulia Quadrifoglio as well as several Fiat models including the Doblò, Ducato and Panda 4×4. The presentation also featured the Carabinieri’s first off-roader which was the Fiat Campagnola which entered service in the 1950s.
