Jeep Wrangler Special Editions Marks End Of Generation

Special Edition

Jeep isn't finished with the current Wrangler just yet.

While Jeep will soon be unleashing a new 2018 Wrangler into the wild, the long-lasting off-roader is getting a fitting send-off with the launch of at least two special editions. One of the highlights at the 49th Easter Jeep Safari two years ago was the retro-inspired Chief SUV concept, bearing a two-tone blue and white paintjob as a homage to the original Chief Cherokee. Set to debut at the New York Auto Show this week, the limited-edition Jeep Wrangler Chief will continue its legacy, retaining the retro paintjob last seen on the Chief concept.

Available in three colors including the signature Chief Blue, every Jeep Wrangler Chief will be distinguished by a white hardtop and stripes running down the doors and along the side of the hood, as well as 17-inch wheels and a “4 Wheel Drive” graphic on the tailgate designed as a throwback to the original Chief Cherokee. Prices for the Chief start at $35,540 if you opt for the two-door model and $39,340 for the four-door Unlimited. As standard, the Wrangler Chief is fitted with a 3.6-liter, V6 285-horsepower engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission, or a five-speed automatic can be fitted for an extra $1,400.

While the bold colors of the Jeep Wrangler Chief are designed to fill you with nostalgia, the Smoky Mountain Wrangler limited edition, on the other hand, adopts a more minimalist style, featuring an all-black trim covering everything from the headlights and bumpers, to the grille and 18-inch wheels, with only the hood graphics and writing on the tires standing out. Jeep is offering the same specs as the Wrangler Chief for the Smoky Mountain, with prices starting at $35,440 for the two-door version, while the four-door Unlimited model will cost an extra $3800. Don't be surprised if these aren't the last Wrangler special editions you see before it gets sent off.
