Jeep is bringing a bunch of special edition utility vehicles to the Geneva Motor Show.
Geneva. It’s considered by most car enthusiasts to be the biggest car show of the year, with manufacturers from across the globe bringing their best and newest vehicles to show off in front of their peers.
This year, Jeep is bringing a cavalcade of special edition SUVs to showcase both their wide variety of unique accessories from Mopar as well as their ability to remain relevant in Europe by releasing cars we’ve already got in North America.
We’ll start with what will be center stage, a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with a whole host of Mopar bits attached. It'll be lifted by 2 inches, have a snorkel, rock rails, and black door sill guards. And some floor mats with “1941” emblazoned on them, which is cool.
Moving on, we get introduced to the new “S” range of vehicles. The S, in this case, stands for sporty, according to Jeep, and what “sporty” means to the famed off-road utility maker is apparently white paint jobs with black roofs. More specifically, two-tone Pearl White paint with a black roof.
Along with the special paint, each S vehicle comes with a Nappa leather interior, leather steering wheels, tungsten stitching, the latest Uconnect 8.4-inch navigation and infotainment system, and the maximum number of driver assist features that each vehicle can contain.
The Renegade, Compass, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee all get S versions with the biggest difference between them all being the wheels. Everyone but the Grand Cherokee get 19-inch Granite Crystal Metallic alloy wheels, which the Grand Cherokee gets 20-inchers.
We’ll skip over the European debut of the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, which has been on sale in the US for some time.
Finally, we get to the Jeep Compass Night Eagle. This special edition once again confirms Jeep’s “sportiness”, but does so in the opposite direction of the S series by going dark. Laser Blue paint combines with black accents on the grille, fog lights, halogen headlight bezels, and badging.
This time the wheels are painted Gloss Black, but they’re still 19-inch alloys.
