Golden eagle soars

Written by 
The Jeep Golden Eagle. The Jeep Golden Eagle.

The Jeep legend was born in WWII but it came of age in the 1970s with a Golden Eagle version of the Jeep CJ7.

It combined off-road ability with high levels of equipment, making it a sales hit for Jeep. 

Fast forward to 2018, and Jeep is reviving both the winning formula and the Golden Eagle name for the New Zealand market. 

This exclusive Jeep Wrangler, limited to 20 units for NZ, has all the off-road ability of the Wrangler, Golden Eagle decals on the exterior and the maker’s U-Connect telematics system inside. 

Other eye-catching details include 18-inch bronze-painted aluminium wheels, Body colour fender flares, a 3-piece hard top, bronze accented grille throats and headlamp rings, a black painted 7-slot Jeep grille and rock rails.

In the cabin, a 6.5-inch Uconnect touchscreen radio combines with a 7-speaker Alpine premium audio system. The black cloth interior is trimmed with light bronze accent stitching and embroidered Golden Eagle logo on the front seats. Mopar black all-weather slush mats with Jeep’s tyre tread pattern keep things clean underfoot.
