A Guide to Special Edition Jeeps

No automotive maker can rival the exceptional special edition models that Jeep is known for. While maintaining the iconic looks that make their vehicles so recognizable, each of their uniquely customized models is made to give drivers maximum performance.

These are no typical 4x4s. They’re packed with state-of-the-art equipment and features, offering owners the best on and off-road performance in Jeep history.

Jeep’s special editions carry on the legacy of a brand that has backed soldiers in battle, taken families cross-country, and given enthusiasts the ability to break new boundaries.

With such thoughtful design and meticulous craftsmanship, there’s really only one thing left undetermined: Which special edition Jeep is right for you?

Dragon Edition


The 2014 Dragon Edition of the Wrangler Unlimited is a one-of-a-kind. Tattooed throughout with dragon images and coordinating bronze accents, this Jeep blends art with sinew.

The theme is cohesive, with dragons appearing on the tire cover, grab handles, hood, side panels, and seats. And beyond the power and strength represented in this unique Wrangler Unlimited, there’s also quite a bit of luxury.

A leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 7-speaker Alpine audio system, premium side steps, a Mopar fuel filler door, and 18-inch cast aluminum wheels let you know that this is no ordinary 4×4.

So take off the top and doors and fold down the windshield. Enjoy the open air and let your instincts guide you as you take your Command-Trac 4×4 where no vehicle besides a Jeep can go. The Dragon Edition Wrangler comes Trail-Rated for a reason.

Altitude Edition


The Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Patriot, Compass, Wrangler, and Wrangler Unlimited are all part of the family of Altitude Edition vehicles at your local Jeep dealership.

This sophisticated trim looks both refined and powerful. Sleek details like gloss black wheels, roof rails, and badging give Altitude models a chic, unified appearance. Each member of the lineup is available in its own exclusive colors.

Inside, there’s a tone of luxury with soft surfaces, leather-trimmed seats, glossy accents, and premium technology and sound.

For example, the Grand Cherokee Altitude Edition comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen navigation system, and the Wrangler version boasts a 7-speaker Alpine audio setup.

The High Altitude Compass and Patriot take the richness even a little bit further. Features included in both top-of-the-line packages include a power sunroof, illuminated cup holders, and satin silver interior accents.

Altitude Edition vehicles offer the capability you expect from a Jeep combined with high-class looks and sumptuous surroundings.

Rubicon Hard Rock Edition


The Rubicon Hard Rock Edition is as upscale as it is rugged. Available for both Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models, it pairs choice materials and features with exceptional off-roading capabilities.

In the cabin, heated leather-trimmed seats with embroidered logos define this unique Jeep right away. Top-of-the-line features, including a 9-speaker Alpine sound system and Uconnect Voice Command with Bluetooth make the Hard Rock convenient and gratifying.

Getting down to the nitty gritty of what it can do, you’ll find clever design features like a steel front bumper with removable end caps. It allows drivers to adjust when additional clearance is needed.

And there are also functional hood vents that not only solidify the Hard Rock’s tough appearance, but also provide added cooling and enhanced performance.

It’s equipped with Jeep’s legendary Rock-Trac 4×4 system, Tru-Loc electronic locking differentials, and an electronic front sway bar disconnect to give you what you need for the most intense off-roading excursions.

Willys Wheeler Edition


With a V6 that produces 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, this special edition Jeep has come a long way from the original days of Willys’ 4x4s.

But it still embodies Jeep’s incredible heritage. Its modernized military look and masterful command off the pavement certainly make it suited to carry the Willys name.

It even wears a classic 4 Wheel Drive decal that’s a throwback to the styling of the Willys CJ-3A from the late 1940s.

Modified 17-inch wheels, Rubicon rock rails, performance slush mats, and built-in grab handles are all at the ready for serious adventure.

And Command-Trac 4WD, a Trac-Lok differential rear axle, and Hill Descent Control are also part of the package so you can feel confident when you take your off-roading experiences to new extremes.

If you are a true diehard Jeep fan, this model is a great choice. Though it embraces the modern technologies that make daily life simpler and off-roading more engaging, it also exudes a timeless quality.

The Willys Wheeler Edition is a reminder of why people love using their Jeeps for recreation. There’s just nothing else like it.

Freedom Edition

Marked with a freedom star right on the hood, the Freedom Edition Wrangler is the ultimate patriotic vehicle. It embodies the traditions that make America so extraordinary.

The Freedom Edition’s badging is a tip-of-the-hat to our country’s military. It reads “Oscar Mike,” a term derived from the military alphabet. “O” is for Oscar and “M” is for Mike, and when used as a phrase, they mean “On the Move.”

This is the perfect Jeep for anyone who lives by that motto. If you’re on the go, always looking for a new challenge, you’ll find that the Freedom Edition Wrangler is the perfect match.

With the strength and spirit it takes to handle any obstacle, this Jeep delivers a driving experience that you don’t want to miss out on.

Its highly capable Command-Trac 4×4 system gives you traction when you need it most. Whether you’re traversing slick terrain, rock crawling, or making a steep descent, it’s well-equipped for tough demands.

And while the Freedom Edition offers plenty of muscle, it also manages to be extremely comfortable and polished inside.

Supportive seats with Oscar Mike embroidered logos, Quick Silver interior accents, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with contrast stitching, and a clean, intuitive dash tie the whole package together.

X Edition

For 2015, the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are being offered in a special X Edition. These unique models were inspired by competitors in the X Games who overcome incredible obstacles, even in the fiercest conditions.

Jeep has been a sponsor of the X Games for some time and will be sponsoring this year’s event in Aspen.

Motivated by the unbelievable athletes at the games, Jeep set out to create a 4×4 with comparable tenacity and flare. And they met their goal.

From its bold exterior to its superior engineering, the Wrangler X Edition is every Jeep lover’s dream.  It’s available in four finishes: Firecracker Red, Baja Yellow, Bright White, and Black.

A body-color hardtop, Power Dome hood, and black grille badge help set it apart, showing off what it looks like when style meets stamina.

In terms of capability, this Jeep is ready for just about anything you throw at it. Equipped with a Command Trac 4×4 system and a powerful Pentastar V6, it’s ready to rumble.

This Trail-Rated model also has its own specialized off-roading features like black 5-spoke wheels with Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor tires and Hill Descent Control.
