The new special edition model is based on the Wrangler Sport trim level and can be ordered in any Wrangler color starting from $25,695 for the two-door and $29,595 for the four-door. The Willys Wheeler come with a batch of exclusive exterior features, including gloss black grille, front/rear bumper appliques, historic “4 Wheel Drive” and “Willys” decals and unique high-gloss black 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Jeep offers a range of hardware upgrades as well, such as a Dana 44 rear axle with Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential and 3.73 gears, BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain tires, rock rails and a new Jeep Trail Rated Kit with D-Ring and tow strap.

As you might have already guessed, the Willys Wheeler Edition will be offered with Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 under the hood. The engine provides 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and should be good enough for an off-road adventure.
