Offered with diesel unit mated to a five-speed manual. Damn you Europeans!
Jeep has forged a strong overseas presence in recent years and its coolest model – the Wrangler – will be arriving at the Geneva Motor Show next week in the shape of an all-new special edition, dubbed the Black Edition II to tempt Europeans. The “II” in the name is a bit of a mystery given an Edition I has never been made, but the “Black” obviously refers to the black-painted 18-inch rims, door mirror caps, grille inserts, Jeep badge, headlight surrounds, Mopar fuel cap and spare-tire cover.
The interior is – you guessed it – heavy on the black, with black leather seats and polished black accents, and comes with a Uconnect infotainment system and special accessory package. Based on the Wrangler Sahara, the Black Edition II also boasts a body-color three-piece hardtop and soft top and will be available in two- and four-door Unlimited variants. Chrysler’s 200-hp 2.8-liter diesel four-pot and 284-hp 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 units will be offered mated exclusively to a five-speed automatic. We'll bring you live shots of the special edition Wrangler from Geneva next week.
