The Jeep Wrangler has been around for many years. This SUV is often known for its off-road prowess, but it has a history even before that. In 1997, the TJ Jeep Wrangler was introduced, but it was not until 2003 that the first off-road focused Wrangler Rubicon was introduced. In 2007, the next-generation JK Jeep Wrangler was first debuted with a fresh design including a larger four-door model option. There are three main types of Jeep Wranglers. These three types include the Wrangler Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon. The Sport is the most basic model that is the most affordable Wrangler option, The Sahara is a mid-level option with more standard features, and the Rubicon is known to have the most features including off-road features and technology.
As discussed above, the Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon are the three main types of Jeep Wranglers, but Jeep is also known for creating special editions of the Jeep Wrangler. Take a closer look at some of the Wrangler special editions from different years below.
The Jeep Wrangler Altitude is a special edition Wrangler from the year 2012. This special edition gives you features like unique styling and unique interior features.

In 2003, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon was first introduced as an off-road focused model. For 2013, the Rubicon 10th Anniversary Special Edition was introduced to celebrate this vehicle’s legacy. The Rubicon was named after an off-road trail, and it was packed with off-road equipment. For the Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition, there are new features like steel winch-ready bumpers, new rock rails, and BF Goodrich KM2 off-road tires.

For 2016, the Wrangler Black Bear is an impressive special edition. This special edition was named for the Black Bear Pass trail that can be found in Colorado. Black Bear Pass is only a 10-mile trail, but it is known to have high altitudes, narrow stretches, and intense switchbacks, which make it a tough trail to conquer. The Black Bear special edition gives you unique features like a topographical map hood decal, rock rails, 17-inch wheels, Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires, and more. This vehicle also has interior features like all-weather floor mats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, instrument bezels, and iron gray door handles.

This special edition Jeep Wrangler came out in 2017, but it gets its inspiration from the 1940s Willys CJ. Jeep started out creating military Jeeps for World War II, but the Willys CJ was a civilian version of this military Jeep. The 2017 Willys Wheeler edition has some design cues and options that are a throwback to the original Willys. The Willys Wheeler has a great look with a two-door Jeep, high-gloss black 17-inch wheels, BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires, black cloth seating, and more.
