Jeep® Offers Two New Special-edition Wrangler Models for 2020
Jeep never fails to interest buyers by bringing back “fashion” and history at just the right moment. For instance, a classic Jeep of the “day” had a black and tan look. Or what about anything with “Willys” on it? Well, ModernJeepers, check out the new 2020 options.
According to the folks at Fiat Chrysler (FCA), the Jeep® brand is returning the Wrangler Willys edition to the iconic SUV’s lineup and introducing the new 2020 Wrangler Black & Tan. Both models are based on the Wrangler Sport S and feature unique exterior and interior content. ModernJeepers will be excited to hear this.
“Special editions are a perfect way for Jeep to connect with customers and feed their ideas and passion into the brand and its vehicles,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – North America. “Wrangler Willys harkens back to the original Jeep while Wrangler Black & Tan offers a unique look with a tan top. We are proud that both new models will add to the wide appeal Jeep Wrangler already offers,” he added.
From what we have heard, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Willys and Black & Tan editions are available to order now if you just can’t wait!
