Ohio, 26 February 2015: The new Jeep Wrangler Black Edition II, available on the main European markets as of next summer, will be making its debut and the Geneva Motor Show. Depending on the countries where it will be on sale, the special series will be on offer with two different models (Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited) and two engine units: the 2.8 litre turbodiesel, with 200 HP and 460 Nm torque and the highly performing petrol powered 3.6 litre V6 Pentastar, with its 284 HP and 347 Nm maximum torque. Both engine units will come with an automatic 5 speed transmissions system.
Synonymous with off-road ever since its inception, the icon of the Jeep brand boasts a natural inclination towards “customisation”, proven by the many special versions, produced in limited and numbered editions, that have appeared over the course of the last four years: “70th Anniversary Edition” (2011), Arctic (2012), Mountain (2012), Black Edition (2012), Moab (2013), “Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition” (2013), Polar (2014), Rubicon X (2014) and the recent “X Edition” Wrangler. Each of them, starting with the name, celebrates an important anniversary of Jeep’s history or the kind of tough environmental conditions where the Wrangler model is at its best, guaranteeing an unparalleled driving experience even in the most extreme surroundings.
Now the time has come for the Jeep Wrangler Black Edition II to take up the challenge, providing further confirmation of how fundamental these special series of this iconic vehicle have become. Thanks to the stylistic features and special equipment, these special series help to “multiply” the model’s personality, thus helping to target different customer segments. Powerful and distinctive representations, capable of heightening to the utmost degree the values of adventure, authenticity, freedom and passion that have always played such a big part in Jeep product communication, and of the Wrangler model in particular.
Taking the Jeep Wrangler Sahara version as its starting point, the new special Black Edition II series has unique external features with black elements such as the seven slit grille, the 18″ allow rims, the frontal Jeep logo, the headlight trim, the rear mirror covers and the rear wheel cover.
