Jeep has finally revealed the details and accessories of the limited edition Call of Duty-themed Wrangler after the story was leaked by Joystiq.com last month.
"The Jeep brand's partnership with Activision marries the world's most capable and iconic vehicle--the Jeep Wrangler--with one of the world's most popular entertainment experiences," said Mike Manley, president and chief executive of the Jeep Brand of Chrysler Group LLC. "As a result, we are able to expose the Jeep brand and its legendary capability to an entirely new group of consumers."
Named after the game, the Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition is based on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model and has a black exterior and comes with Call of Duty: Black Ops graphics on the roof and front quarter panels. It also has taillamp guards, a Mopar fuel-filler door, 32-inch off-road tires, live axles with locking differentials in the front and rear and a two-speed transfer case.
In the game, the vehicle is available in both single player storyline mode and in the title's much anticipated multiplayer experience.
"It was important for us to make sure that the Jeep partnership would be authentic and enhance the setting we immerse our fans in with Black Ops," said Mark Lamia, studio head of game developer Treyarch. "Our work with the Jeep team focused around using the Jeep Wrangler in our levels and gameplay experiences and translating the style and look of the vehicle in Black Ops to the Jeep on the showroom floor that our fans can own."
Call of Duty: Black Ops will be released worldwide on November 9 while its namesake Jeep Wrangler will go on sale sometime in the same month.
