Inspired by the original Willys CJ, considered the father of recreational vehicles, the 2017 Jeep® Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Willys Wheeler combine key off-roading components with classic styling. The Willys Wheeler takes open-air driving even further with the available half doors. Legendary 4x4 capability comes standard with a Command-Trac® 4x4 System, a 3.73 Trac-Lok® rear differential, off-road rock rails, BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A® tires and more.


The 2017 Jeep® Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Willys Wheeler take inspiration from the past while forging a path that is all their own. The Willys Wheeler blends the styling of the ‘40s-era Willy CJs with modern features like high-gloss black 17-inch wheels, off-road rock rails and high-gloss black details.

Off-Road Rock Rails 
Off-road rock rails are standard for added strength and protection when sliding over rocks and boulders. 

High-Gloss Black Details 
High-gloss black bumper appliqués, a high-gloss black front grille, a matte black grille badge and satin black WILLYS decals on the hood look amazing. 

Four-Wheel-Drive Decal 
Authentic styling reminiscent of the Willys CJ from the late 1940s adds an old-school civilian flair to this timeless ride. 


The Willys Wheeler interior features black cloth seating, all-weather slush mats, off-road grab handles and a leather-wrapped chrome shift knob and steering wheel. It also includes the Connectivity Group featuring Uconnect® Voice Command, allowing you to communicate virtually hands-free with a voice-activated system using your Bluetooth®-compatible phone.

Deep-Tint Windows
