Jeep Wrangler Willys features design touches and equipment

Jeep announced the release of two limited versions of the Wrangler: Black & Tan and Willys. The first specification is more comfortable than a conventional SUV, and Willys’s performance is focused on off-road potential. In addition, Jeep confirmed the debut at the Wranglers 3.0-liter turbodiesel.

Externally, Wrangler Willys is distinguished by stickers on the hood, a black-graphite radiator grill, running boards from the Rubicon, all-weather floor mats and 32-inch Firestone tires with original wheels. From the most prepared for off-road version, Rubicon Willys also “inherited” the rear limited slip differential, the two-stage Command-Trac 4×4, reinforced brakes and shock absorbers.

The Black & Tan modification is issued by 17-inch alloy wheels, a beige soft top, a Wizard Black front panel, Heritage Tan upholstery, dual-zone climate control and a seven-inch multi-touch touch screen. Both versions are based on “medium” trim levels.

In addition, the Wranglers are waiting for an early expansion of the powertrain line – four-door SUVs for the US market will receive a V6 3.0 EcoDiesel turbo engine. The heavy fuel power unit develops 264 horsepower (599 Nm of torque) and will appear in the configurator in 2020. Previously, Wrangler diesel engines with a 2.2-liter 200-horsepower (450 Nm of torque) engine were sold only in Europe.

Prices for the two-door Wrangler Willys and Wranger Black & Tan start in the US with $ 32,940. Four-door SUVs will cost more: the Willys version is priced at $ 37,240, and Black & Tan – at $ 36,440.

For comparison, the basic two-door Wrangler in the United States costs $ 28 thousand, and for a four-door modification you need to pay at least $ 31.5 thousand. The price list for an SUV with a turbodiesel has not yet been announced.
