Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition

At the beginning of next year, Jeep will introduce the 201 Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition which will be available in all Jeep showrooms. We will have the opportunity to see the new thing for the first time at the LA Auto Show next week. The new model can be very easily recognized by all Jeep fans and by the ones that know a few things about the company and this model, in particular, starting from the very beginning. The engineers have offered an upgraded hardware, including a Dana 44 rear axle with Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential and 3.7 gears, BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain LT255 / 75 R17 tires, rock rails and a new Jeep Trail Rated Kit that includes a D-Ring, tow strap and gloves in a Jeep-banded bag.

In terms of exterior design, the model comes with a gloss black grille with black Jeep badge, gloss black front and rear bumper appliques. Moving on, we also have to mention the well-known satin black 4 Wheel Drive rear tailgate decal and Willys hood decals. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered 17-inch aluminium wheels. All units will have the Connectivity Group with SiriusXM satellite radio and Sport S-based models will come with the Power Convenience Group and Premium Tire Pressure Monitoring System offered as standard. As optional, the model can also come with the iconic half doors. It will receive power from a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 unit capable of generating 28 horsepower and 260 lb. ft. of torque. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, but a 5-speed automatic one is also available. In terms of fuel consumption, the model reaches 21 mpg on the highway.
