Jeep has revealed today a special edition of the 2014 Wrangler that goes by the name of Willys Wheeler and it will be showcased later this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The model is a throwback to the original CJ and is based on the Wrangler Sport specification. It can be distinguished by its glossy black bumper appliques, a glossy black front grille and Willys decals on the hood. Other than that, it has 17-inch glossy black alloy wheels shod in BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain L tires, along with a tinted Sunrider soft top.
The vehicle is powered by a Pentastar V6 3.6-liter engine developing 285 bhp and 260 lb-ft sent to the Command-Trac 4×4 system via either a standard six-speed manual gearbox or an optional six-speed automatic. The Wrangler Willys Wheeler special edition also boasts a Track-Lok limited slip differential and a Dana 44 rear axle. Moreover, Jeep has installed a Trail Rated Kit encompassing gloves, a tow strap and a D-ring.
The two-door model costs $25,795 while the four-door (Unlimited) is available from $29,595. Deliveries are programmed to kick off early next year.
