After more than 10 years of production and around 2.1-million vehicles built, fans will finally have to say goodbye to the Jeep Wrangler JK as the last unit rolled off the assembly line at FCA’s Toledo plant last Friday. A white Rubicon Unlimited, the final Wrangler JK rolled off the line and into Jeep’s fleet of show cars.
With production ending, one would think there will be no more special edition JK Wranglers, but it seems like Australia is giving the JK a proper send off by launching two unique models. Called the Golden Eagle and Freedom, both will be offered by Jeep in limited quantities.
CarScoops describers the black Jeep Wrangler Golden Eagle as a JK Wrangler based model featuring a large eagle decal on the bonnet, rock rails, a body-colored three-piece hardtop and fenders, bronze badges, tinted rear windows, and a set of 18-inch alloys. Similarly, the interior is finished in black and bronze. The red Freedom edition is more “militaristic” with stars instead of eagles and an Oscar Mike insignia. Setting it apart form the Eagle is a Granite Crystal-finished grille and a black interior with Iron Grey accents.
Only 120 Golden Eagles will be made and 150 examples of the Freedom, so those in Australia will need to fight tooth and nail for one.
