Jeep Unveils a Heritage Off-Road Package with the Willys Xtreme Recon

Jeep offers a bunch of different Wrangler models and trims these days, and two of the most attractive have got to be the Rubicon and Rubicon 392 in their very off-road-capable Xtreme Recon trim. The big Wrangler and its HEMI V8-powered sibling were previously the only way to get the Xtreme Recon Package, but now Jeep has expanded their portfolio by offering the trim level on the more budget-friendly Wrangler Willys.

The heritage-themed Wrangler with the added Xtreme Recon Package comes in at around $40,000, while a Rubicon outfitted with the same package will set you back over 50 grand. That’s a pretty significant difference, and it ought to give more drivers the chance to experience Jeep at its most outdoor-capable. So what does the package include? Quite a bit, actually. In addition to the Wrangler Willys’ innate 4×4 capabilities, the Xtreme Recon Package adds 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires, 17-inch by 8-inch Beadlock-capable wheels, swing gate reinforcement, a 4.56:1 axle ratio, a 1.5-inch factory suspension lift with specially-tuned shocks, and anti-lock four-wheel-disc performance brakes. All of these add-ons give the Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package the best approach angle, departure angle, ground clearance, and water fording capability in its class. In other words, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more capable off-road SUV for the money anywhere.

Jeep will begin offering the Xtreme Recon Package on the 2022 Wrangler Willys in October, with an MSRP of $39,435 — plus a $1,495 destination charge.

Purchase: $39,435+
