2022 Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package
The Jeep Wrangler is the undisputed icon of off-road vehicles. Built to a distinctive and rugged design, every model in the range has the capability to explore deep into the wilderness, just as perfectly happy on rocky trails as on the city pavement. But for the very best Wrangler off-road experience, drivers had to pay for the high-end Rubicon trim with the additional Xtreme Recon package. This combination produced possibly the most capable off-road vehicle available in Canada, but it came at a relatively high sticker price.
The excellent news for Wrangler devotees is that for 2022, the Xtreme Recon package is now available on the Willys trim, bringing serious off-road credentials to the middle range of the Wrangler lineup at an impressively affordable price. Here's what you can expect from the 2022 Wrangler Willys with the added Xtreme Recon package.
Rugged Off-Road Engineering Changes
From a single glance it's clear that the Wrangler's already enormous off-road capability has been taken to a new level. All-new 35-inch tires set the tone, and when combined with a 1.5" suspension lift, the result is a Wrangler that can clamber over the rockiest surfaces with ease. The shocks are specially tuned for more challenging terrains, while a low 4.56:1 axle ratio and heavily upgraded brakes complete the picture to give the 2022 Wrangler Willys an unmatched level of off-road chops.
According to official Jeep specs, this version of the Wrangler boasts an approach angle of 47.4°, a departure angle of 40.4°, and a 26.7° breakover angle. Total ground clearance is pushed up to 12.9 inches, with a water fording figure pitched at 33.6 inches.
But all the off-road changes would mean little if the basic engineering wasn't up to scratch. Thankfully, the 2022 Wrangler Willys is built around Jeep's powerful 3.6L V6 gas engine which makes a meaty 285 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque. This generous output is plenty enough to propel the four-door frame across the trickiest surfaces and steepest gradients. It goes without saying that the Wrangler Willys boasts full-time all-wheel drive, while the power is passed to the axles via a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission with the Selec-Terrain torque management system.
And while the Wrangler might be one of the toughest SUVs available, the interior offers a high level of comfort with plenty of advanced technology. The extensive infotainment features are accessed through an 8.4" touchscreen display, featuring smartphone integration as standard through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In-built navigation is an available option, along with a premium nine-speaker Alpine audio system.
And lastly, the tech level continues with a generous suite of active safety and driver assist systems, with highlights including forward collision warnings with emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and more.
