Jeep has introduced new limited-edition variants of its Jeep Wrangler and Compass models.

The Jeep Compass Black Edition gets gloss black accents including the step pads, 18in alloys, front grille inserts, roof rails, headlamp and fog lamp surrounds. It will be available in four-wheel-drive configuration with Jeep’s 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine, which delivers 161bhp and 236lb ft of torque.

Based on the Sport trim line, the Jeep Wrangler Mountain will be available as a two-door or four-door. Exterior features include a black ‘Mountain’ decal on the hood, front gray grille and high-gloss gray 17in wheels. Other additions include side steps and a black fuel-filler cover from Mopar, the Chrysler Group’s parts and accessories arm.

Interior equipment adds to the standard equipment of the Sport trim with a leather steering-wheel with integrated controls and Mopar floor mats and grab handles. The fabric seats have an embroidered ‘Mountain’ logo. A new exterior colour, Gecko Green, has been added to the range available in the Wrangler line-up.

The Jeep Wrangler Mountain can be powered by either a 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine or a 3.6-litre V6 petrol unit. The oilburner is available as a five-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, with the petrol offered only with the auto ‘box.

The Compass Black Edition will reach the UK in August, although the Jeep Wrangler Mountain won’t be offered in the domestic market.

Our Verdict

Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is the classic all-American heavy-duty off-roader. It is brilliant off road, but compromised on the tarmac

I have always loved these things. I have no reason to have one, but the appeal is in knowing when the world comes to an end you will be the last one still driving as there is almost no where they wont go.

Good to see a manual back on the cards for the UK in the diesel. The 2.8 engine and an auto box is useless, with massive turbo lag and almost zero performace.

The petrol will hit 60 in about 8 seconds which must be truely scary in one of these. Almost as scary as the band M tax band
