Jeep’s stand in Paris will feature special editions of the Wrangler, Compass and Grand Cherokee SRT8.
2012 has been somewhat of a low-key year for Jeep. The American automaker has yet to release any new production models or concepts, however the iconic brand does plan on gathering some attention later this month in Paris by showing off three new special editions of its existing lineup. The special editions, based on the Grand Cherokee SRT8, Wrangler and Compass models, will all bow in Europe for the first time at the French auto expo.
First up is the Grand Cherokee SRT8 Limited Edition, which will be available in Europe with a bright white finish and striking black accents for that Storm Trooper look, complimented by a set of 20-inch wheels. The interior has been upgraded with plenty of carbon fiber accents and Nappa leather. The second model on display will be the Compass Overland Edition, complete with chrome exterior trim, 18-inch polished alloys, Boston Acoustics audio system, full leather interior and UConnect infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. All that gear will be motivated for the European market by a pair of diesel engines.
Arguably the most striking model on display at Jeep's stand in Paris will be the Wrangler Moab. The bright-red Jeep boasts black fender flares, redesigned hood, tinted windows and a set of 17-inch gloss-black wheels. It will go on sale in Europe in the first quarter of 2013 and be available with either two doors or four along with two engine options. Keep an eye out for all three Jeep special editions when they are officially presented in Europe in a week's time.
