Jeep Pays Homage to its Ancestors with Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition
For the Jeep purists out there, this year holds
something special. A new version of Jeep Wrangler is being made in a Willys
version to reconnect with the brand's origins. The Jeep Willys Overland CJ-2A
was the first rugged vehicle to emerge for the public after WWII. It gained
popularity as did its successor the CJ-3A and led the way for Jeep's CJ immortality
as the vehicle that could go anywhere.
This throwback to the early years of Jeeps is available
as the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition. This
year's model has a few improvements including a Dana 44 rear axle with Trac-Lok
limited slip rear differential and 3.73 gears.
"The new Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition
is a Jeep purist's dream, delivering a Jeep vehicle that harkens back to the
original, classic CJs of the 1940s," explained Mike Manley, President and
CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "This new Jeep vehicle delivers pure
functionality and rugged capability in a unique package that recognizes the
origins of the brand." 1
The new version has been designed with glossy details
such as a black grille, front and rear appliques and is mounted on shiny black
17-inch aluminum wheels. The basic model is equipped with at a Sunrider soft
top while the premium edition could provide you with black-splatter Freedom Top.
The new Jeep Wrangler edition is expected to be available
at Ontario Chrysler,
at the beginning of next year, but feel free to visit our Mississauga
Jeep dealership during business hours to get more details or test
