The Jeep Golden Eagle Lands in New Zealand

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Golden Eagle has landed in New Zealand, reviving one of the most famous Jeep model names and providing the ultimate off road car with a new range of features and equipment priced from just $67,990 plus on road costs.

The Jeep legend was born in World War Two and it came of age in 1970s with Golden Eagle version of Jeep CJ7 which, with its unique combination of off road ability and high levels of equipment made it a sales hit for Jeep. In 2018 Jeep is reviving both the winning formula and the Golden Eagle name, but unlike the original, this 21st century Golden Eagle will only be on the ground in New Zealand for a very limited time.

Packed with unique features, this exclusive Jeep Wrangler – with just 20 coming to New Zealand has all the off road ability for which the Wrangler is justifiably a legend and it combines this with a very 21st century range of stylish equipment and technology, inside and out from the Golden Eagle decals on the outside to the state of the art uConnect telematic system inside. As ever, there is a wealth of eye catching details, such as the tyre tread floor mats or ‘short shorts’ logo hidden in the large bonnet decal.

“From its inception the Wrangler has served as the ultimate Jeep icon as well as the world’s most capable off-road SUV,” says David Smitherman, Chief Executive Officer for Jeep in New Zealand. “The Golden Eagle brings every element of the Jeep legend together in one, unique vehicle. It is, of course, unique capable on and off road, but at the same time it has all style and features to make it a great, instantly recognisable and fun vehicle. Added to this is an historic name from the annuals of Jeep history and exclusivity with there being just 20 official 2018 Jeep Golden Eagles.”
