Jeep set to sell Call of Duty Wrangler vehicle
Jeep is set to release a vehicle that's based on one you'd find in Call of Duty. Chrysler said Monday that it will offer a limited-edition 2012 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Call of Duty: MW3 Edition, based on the Rubicon model, beginning next month. The new Jeep Wrangler will be available at a U.S. MSRP of $36,495 for the two-door model and $40,070 for the four-door (Jeep Wrangler Unlimited) model, not including destination, Chrysler said.
Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launched today, with preorders and preloads beginning last week. The game is going head to head with Battlefield 3, which sold 5 million copies in its first week of sales.
The Jeep is prominently featured in COD:MW3, Chrysler said.
The 2012 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Call of Duty: MW3 Special Edition is based on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model and features Rubicon wheels finished in semi-gloss black, and is available either in black or bright silver. A special "Call of Duty: MW3 Special Edition" graphic appears on the front fenders and spare tire cover.
The vehicle also features a unique "power-dome" hood, with accessories including a winch-ready front bumper, rear bumper, rock rails, taillamp guards and a fuel-filler door. The limited-edition Wrangler also includes 32-inch off-road tires, live axles with locking differentials in the front and rear, and a two-speed transfer case. Inside, Jeep has included model-specific black seats with accent stitching and Call of Duty logos, unique gauge cluster graphics, dashboard serialized plaque, dashboard grab handle with logo, accent stitching on arm rest, console lid, and steering wheel, Mopar slush mats with logo, and a rear cargo mat with logo for the Unlimited model.
Jeep said it would set up a "Camp Tread" at two Gamestop stores: the E. 14th St. location in New York City and the Diversey Ave. location in Chicago, showing off the new Jeeps. A COD:MW3 Jeep will also be given away via a contest on the Jeep Facebook page.
