Jeep announced its lineup for the 2012 Paris Motor Show, and it includes three new special editions. In hope to get its feet grounded in Europe, Jeep will be bringing the Grand Cherokee SRT Limited Edition, the Wrangler Moab Edition, and the Compass Overland special series to the show.
The finest offering is obviously the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Limited Edition, a 470-horsepower HEMI-powered super SUV that is dressed in a Bright White outfit for its European premiere. The car also features unique exterior and interior appointments over standard SRT models, such as gloss black accents, larger, dark-finished wheels, and red brake calipers.
Also on display in Paris will be the new Jeep Wrangler Moab special-edition model, the production version of a concept car revealed during this year’s Moab Safari event in Utah. This factory-customized Wrangler comes with an all-new Rock Lobster body color, and features lots of off-road goodies to make it more capable than the standard version.
The third special Jeep going to Paris this year is the new Jeep Compass Overland. The Compass is not a very nice car to be honest – neither to look at nor to drive – and all the extra garnish on this particular model, such as unique colors, wheels, and infotainment system, didn’t help either.
Other vehicles also displayed at this year’s Paris Motor Show include the Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited, the new trim line of the brand’s flagship; the Jeep Wrangler Mountain, the special-edition model of the iconic Wrangler launched in Europe last June; and the new limited-edition Jeep Compass Black Edition.
