2022 Wrangler Willys Goes Extreme with Newly Available Upgrades

2022 Wrangler Willys Goes Extreme | Dixon, IL

We have two major philosophies at Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram. The first is that if you want something done right, you should do it yourself. The second is that if you want to go off-roading, you’d better be driving a Jeep®. That’s why we’re excited about the 2022 Jeep® Wrangler Willys.

The 2022 Jeep® Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package is evidence that off-roading continues to be best when you’re behind the wheel of this American icon.

So what comes on this special Xtreme Recon Package for the 2022 Wrangler Willys? For starters, you’ll ride higher thanks to a 1.5-inch factory suspension lift. Plus, you’ll be prepped for uneven terrain with shocks an anti-lock four-wheel-disc brakes.

For fierce looks and fierce performance, the Xtreme Recon Package gives the Wrangler Willys a set of 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires, wrapped around 17-inch beadlock capable wheels.

On top of this, the special model gets swing gate reinforcement, can handle water fording up to 33.6 inches deep, and boasts a departure angle of 40.4 degrees. The 2022 Jeep® Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package has ground clearance of more than a foot (12.9 inches) and a breakover angle of 26.7 degrees. All but the breakover angle are best-in-class distinctions.

Assembly begins on the 2022 Jeep® Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package now, and you can preorder yours through Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.

New Engine Option on the Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Reduces Emissions

The Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited is not only great for your next outdoor adventure, but this model is also designed to reduce your carbon footprint. The latest generation of the Wrangler Unlimited comes with an available 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, which reduces emissions by an impressive 15 percent compared to previous model years.

This 2.0-liter powertrain generates 270 horsepower, and it’s now offered on vehicles other than the Wrangler, such as the Jeep® Cherokee. The 15 percent reduction in emissions is enough to account for the “carbon sequestration” of 16.5 acres of U.S. forest over an entire year. In short, the Wrangler Unlimited is perfect for those who love the environment, whether you’re off-roading near Dixon, IL or driving on the highway.

“This is the outcome we expect when we launch a new vehicle,” says Mitch Clauw, FCA Vice President and Head of Global Pre-Programs and Program Management. “In all our processes, the mitigation of environmental impact is a baked-in consideration.”
