2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition Honors Brand's Past

Basic Off-Roading Trim Package Recognizes Origins of Jeep

Nov 19, 2013
Aside from the sorority girls driving around in Wranglers and commuters slogging it out in the Compass, a good number of Jeep enthusiasts are aware of the brand's history, going back to its World War II origins. To honor the brand's more than seven-decade history, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler edition will get its public reveal at the 2013 Los Angeles auto show.
Available in both the two-door and four-door Wrangler Unlimited models, the Willys Wheeler is based on the Sport model, and splits the difference between "regular" Wranglers and the topline Rubicon with a Dana 44 rear axle, a 3.73 gear ratio, a Trac-Lok limited slip rear differential, BFGoodrich KM Mud Terrain LT 255/75R17 tires, and a Trail Rated kit which includes a D-Ring, tow straps and gloves in a Jeep-branded bag. The transfer case ratio is the standard 2.72:1 compared with the 4:1 ratio of the Rubicon.
To stand out from other Wranglers, the Willys Wheeler gets a gloss back grille, a 4 Wheel Drive tailgate decal and Willys hood decals. A Sunrider soft top in standard, with a premium soft top and Freedom Top optional. Pricing starts at $26,790 for the two-door, and $30,590, including $995 destination. The Willys Wheeler edition will be in Jeep showrooms in the first quarter of 2014.
