2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition

The history of Jeeps runs deep—like World War II-deep. While going back to the 1940s to experience those bumpy rides firsthand would be dangerous and also probably impossible without a working flux capacitor, there will soon be a way to travel like you’re in Band of Brothers. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition pays homage to the oldest of old school Jeeps. It’s based on the Wrangler Sport model, but its heritage is all about the first civilian Jeep (“CJ”) vehicle, the Willys-Overland CJ-2A, which first became available in 1945.

Starting at $25,795, the Willys Wheeler Edition is quite rugged and ready for off-roading, featuring a Dana 44 rear axle with Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential and 3.73 gears, BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain LT255/75R17 tires, and Jeep Command-Trac 4×4 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine turns out 285 horsepower and 260 ft.-lbs. of torque. Exterior flourishes include a gloss black grille with black Jeep badge and high-gloss black 17-inch aluminum wheels.
