The Wrangler Willys
The good ole’ Willys model is inspired by the original Willys Overland CJ-31 from 1948. This model is designed to be extra heavy-duty, while carrying a modernized design that pays tribute to the old 1948 original. Some special features include this Wrangler’s high-performance shock absorbers that help with rough terrain areas, and underbody armor to help protect you when tackling rocky trails and other off-road ventures. Oh, and speaking of removing tops, this model has an available power-top option for easier removal. If you don’t feel like lifting and storing, the electric top is pretty convenient. The Willys Wrangler is definitely one of the coolest limited-edition Jeeps on the market right now.
The Grand Cherokee High Altitude
While Jeep is known for its sporty Wranglers, don’t forget that it also has more luxurious options. The Grand Cherokee High Altitude is one of those fancier models. With its 20-inch low-gloss granite crystal aluminum wheels, paired alongside either a Slate Blue, Sangria, or Velvet Red exterior coat, this model screams darkness. It comes with a dark grille that matches its wheels, and black perforated leather interior. If you like to goth it up Jeep SUV style, the High Altitude Grand Cherokee is going to blow you away.

The interior is gorgeous, with McKinley leather-trimmed seats, accented Tungsten stitching, and black headliner. It’s packed with standard technology, like Apple CarPlay and Navigation, creating a modernized ride for less than $30,000. Renegade High Altitude drivers never have to worry about nighttime visibility, with standard LED projector headlamps, taillamps, cornering fog lamps, and daytime running lamps. We think that the clear black coat looks best with this model, as basic as it sounds. The colors are nice, but the black exterior pairs best with this trim’s accents.
The North Addition Compass
The North Edition Jeep Compass is cool because it’s incredibly customizable. It comes with a Spitfire Orange exterior coat option that pops like a 1990’s Crash Bandicoot game cover, and it pairs great with the standard wheels. It comes with all kinds of safety and driver assistance features, such as tire pressure monitoring, hill start assist, and all-speed traction control. Like a few other previously mentioned models, it comes with all the blackout customizations, including a black grille, black badges, and black fog lamp bezels, just to name a few. This model also looks pretty cool in the Laser Blue exterior pearl coat option.
The Wrangler Rubicon Recon

Even better, its 33-inch tires and steel bumper make it unstoppable in rough weather and off-roading adventures.
Its interior is one of the sharpest Wrangler interiors. It has black leather with red trim, and it includes red seat belts. This, paired with its exterior details such as its hood decal, American Flag side details, and Recon decals, create a well-rounded aesthetic. The Rubicon Recon looks best in Firecracker Red, Ocean Blue, and Black exterior coats.
The Wrangler High Altitude
This is the fanciest Wrangler you can get. If you want to feel fancy, yet you love the off-roading strength, the High Altitude is worth your time. Part of what makes this model so aesthetically appealing is that everything is painted. From the roof, to the fenders, to the bumpers, you’ve got one solid-colored Jeep paired with black, 20-inch sporty rims. Even cooler, the interior leather comes in a steel gray option, which pairs nicely with the Silver Metallic and Granite Crystal exterior coat options. Oh, and even the steering wheel, the shift knob, and the paneling are leather covered. This trim is about as slick as it gets. If you own a High Altitude, you ought to be posting photos of it weekly, and keeping it shined up. It’s a total showstopper.
The Wrangler Freedom Edition
This model pays homage to soldiers, and calls attention to the Wrangler’s roots, like the Willys trim does. It’s got the military-inspired Oscar Mike logo on the front driver and passenger seats. Another cool touch includes the aluminum data plate located on the rear swing gate. This was inspired by information plates on old Jeeps from the military. It’s pretty vintage-looking for sure. Finally, the hood includes a 5-pointed star with a matching tailgate badge. Where the Willys model is more of a tribute to style, the Freedom Edition focuses on those who are serving or who have served. According to Jeep’s website, a donation is made to military charities each time a Freedom Edition Wrangler is built.
