Jeep turned heads at the 2021 Detroit 4Fest with the introduction of the 2022 Wrangler Willys with the Xtreme Recon 35-inch tire package. This marks the first unveiling of the 2022 Jeep Wrangler lineup as we gear up to shift model years. The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Willys with the Xtreme Recon Package has an MSRP of $39,435 (plus destination fee) and includes the following features:

  • LT315/70R17C (35-inch) BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires

  • Swing gate reinforcement
  • 4.56:1 axle ratio
  • 1.5-inch factory suspension lift with uniquely tuned shocks
  • Anti-lock four-wheel-disc performance brakes

Sporting a standard black grille, a matte black “Jeep” badge, a “Willys” hood decal, a black “Trail Rated” badge, a “4-Wheel Drive” decal, 35-inch wheels, and heritage-inspired design make this Wrangler Willys unlike any other that came before it. 

“The new Jeep Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package gives our passionate customers another great option for straight-from-the-factory 35-inch tires. Named after the original Jeep utility vehicle, the Willys holds special meaning to the Jeep brand, and we’re excited to enhance the new Wrangler Willys with 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 tires,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America.

2021: Year of the Wrangler

2021 has been a stellar year for Jeep, and especially for the Jeep Wrangler model. The year kicked off with the Wrangler 4xe, the first electrified Jeep model in North America, and followed up with the first V8-powered Wrangler Rubicon 392 in almost four decades. 

With its 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, the 2021 Wrangler 4xe delivers 21 miles of all-electric range and features a 49 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) — all while maintaining the heritage features that make the Wrangler legendary. Electrification only enhances the model’s off-road capabilities, while its water fording prowess remains intact with up to 30 inches of capacity. In the second quarter of 2021, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe was reported to be the No. 1 best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle in all of America. Within its first year of eligibility, the Wrangler 4xe earned a Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsions Systems award. 

Jeepers looking for legendary and authentic performance can count on the Wrangler Rubicon 392 as the quickest and most powerful Wrangler yet. Powered by a 6.4-liter supercharged V8 engine and rated at 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 also comes standard with a Selec-Trac full-time active transfer case and has the ability to go from 0-60 mph in only 4.5 seconds.
