2011 Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition – Click above for high-res image gallery

Fans of the Call of Duty video game franchise know that the latest edition, Call of Duty: Black Ops, will be released on November 9th. What you might not know, however, is that Activision Publishing, Inc. – the folks responsible for distributing Call of Duty – have partnered with Jeep, not only to have the Wrangler featured in the latest addition of the CoD series, but to create a special Call of Duty edition of Jeep's most popular vehicle.

The 2011 Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition hits dealerships next month, priced from $30,625 for the two-door model and $33,500 for the four-door Unlimited (a base two-door Rubican normally starts at $28,775). Based on the Wrangler's Rubicon trim, the Black Ops Edition features mineral gray alloy wheels wrapped in 32-inch off-road tires, Mopar taillamp guards, a Mopar fuel door, Call of Duty: Black Ops logos, an entirely blacked-out exterior and... that's it. Unless, of course, you count all of the Wrangler's upgrades for 2011, not the least of which is a redesigned interior. Read the full details for yourself in Jeep's press release, after the jump.

October 19, 2010 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The Jeep® brand today announced it has been named exclusive automotive partner by Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) for Call of Duty®: Black Ops, the year's most anticipated entertainment launch, which will be released on November 9.

In conjunction with the partnership, the Jeep brand also announced that it will produce a limited-edition 2011 Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition. Available in Jeep showrooms next month, the new limited-edition Jeep Wrangler will be available at a U.S. manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $30,625 for the two-door model and $33,500 for the four-door (Jeep Wrangler Unlimited) model. Both prices include $750 destination.

"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 CEO – Jeep Brand, 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."

"This is a dynamic and fully integrated partnership that brings together two iconic brands across a full array of consumer touch-points," stated Brad Jakeman, Chief Marketing Officer, Activision Publishing, Inc. "From the beginning our teams worked together to make this a truly creative partnership that added to the consumer experience of both the Jeep and Call of Duty: Black Ops brands."

The 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition is based on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model and features dark Rubicon wheels in a high-gloss Mineral Gray. The vehicle's exterior color is black and features Call of Duty: Black Ops graphics on the roof and front quarter panels. The vehicle also features taillamp guards and a fuel-filler door from Mopar®. Inspired by Call of Duty: Black Ops, the new limited-edition Wrangler delivers legendary Jeep capability, aggressive 32-inch off-road tires, live axles with locking differentials in the front and rear, and a two-speed transfer case.

The partnership delivers a natural fit including an in-game integration into both the epic single player storyline of Call of Duty: Black Ops and 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."

All-new 2011 Jeep Wrangler

Jeep continues to refine the successful Wrangler formula by combining legendary, benchmark capability with an all-new interior that delivers rich styling with significantly upgraded touch surfaces, occupant comfort and versatility, and a premium appearance courtesy of an all-new body color hard top for the popular Sahara model.

New 2011 Jeep Wrangler interior highlights include a redesigned instrument panel and new storage areas with improved ergonomics and upgraded materials. A new lockable console and upgraded door armrest areas boast comfortable touch points, while a redesigned center stack is easier to reach and operate. Heated, power mirrors are now available, and drivers and passengers will enjoy enhanced visibility courtesy of larger rear windows.

All-new steering-wheel controls allow the driver to operate the radio, cruise control, hands-free phone and other vehicle functions while keeping hands on the wheel. A new USB interface connects to storage devices for use with the vehicle's Media Center, which now includes streaming Bluetooth audio. Twelve-volt accessory outlets have been added and a new 110-volt outlet is available to provide power similar to AC outlets in the home.

In line with traditional Jeep design, hex-head bolts are utilized throughout the interior, and are used to mount a "Jeep, Since 1941" inlay onto the new passenger grab handle.

Jeep engineers increased acoustical treatment in the 2011 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, resulting in significantly reduced interior noise.

To provide a more premium appearance, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Sahara models boast an all-new, premium, body-color hard top.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops will be released worldwide on November 9th for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Nintendo Wii™ and Windows PC. Pre-orders for the title are currently available. For additional Call of Duty updates, visit www.callofduty.com/blackops and also via Twitter @JD_2020.

      i really do not understand why anyone would have a problem with this limited edition. yes it is basically the exact trim as the rubicon for a higher price, but the increased price is because it is LIMITED. jeep isn't trying to make a military vehicle you can take home, no one would buy a bareboned jeep with plastic seats, no a/c, and no power options, they are simply making the vehicle that is playable in the game. there will absolutely be a demand for this jeep just because of the CoD badges on it. i, personally, would love to own one of these. i owned the 2 door unlimited with the same engine and, guess what, never once had a problem going up hill. if a hill is to steep, buy a winch, thats what they are for. when you criticize a limited edition, you just come off sounding like an idiot.

      Randy Marsh you are showing your ignorance. Wrangler has the best resale of any vehicle on the market and hioghest residuals posted by ALG. They are selling the heck out of the vehicle with zero rebate. And when you say noone takes Chrysler seriously, apparently you have not been reading the press releases and sales figures. Not to mention that the new Grand Cherokee was just rated the "Best Buy" by Consumers Digest. SO when you say noone takes Chrysler seriously, I guess you are ignoring the over 1 million people that will purchase a Chrysler brand vehicle this year. Try to make comments based on facts, it makes the message boards much more informative.

      Needs less boat anchor engine and more Pentastar.

      To much money for some outside fluff and a black paint job. You ever own a dark colored car?? It's a major pain to keep clean. You can see dust on it two minutes after washing it. I'll stay with my 2005 Rubicon and the $5,000+ of after market add ons. It's a pig on gas, but hey, it sure as hell isn't a Toyota Prius. Only thing you need to ask is...Got Jeep?

      Everyone relax. They arent planning on selliing these by the dozen. And this special edition isnt going to cost Jeep anything because all the parts are from their parts bins except for the stickers.

      • 4 Years Ago
      Really...let's focus on the subject of 2 bad ass products coming together. Plus most of us generation xers don't really care what everybody else thinks we just buy what we like. All you old timers relax its about fun not war....grow up and act your age. Ps have a nice day.

      Eager to display proof of your reluctantly kept virginity? We here at Jeep have the vehicle for you.

      I love Jeeps... and I love Call of Duty...

      But I'd be too embarrassed to drive a vehicle with video game stickers on it.

      The anti-chick magnet.

      I have a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon which looks Identical to that without the (optional) tail light guards and grey color on the wheels.

      So...this is basically a badge? Uh...ok.

        The beauty of Jeep is that it does not pretend to be anything but a Jeep! The body style better not change -- rendering last year's model obsolete, lowering the resale value, product/brand endurance as well as the iconography of the Jeep!

        It's a classless (their is no demographic), unpretentious, utility vehicle. In short, it's a blast. The greedy moneychangers have not corrupted the romantic journeys of so many off-centered pilgrims waving at each other, because we know -- it's a Jeep thing! Don't touch the art!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yep. I just bought a new Wrangler and therefore, I'm pretty familiar with the options available etc. From what I can see, that's exactly what it is. The wheel/tire package is from the "Mountain" option group, and the black-out parts are from the MOPAR "black-out" option group. All that remains is the decal and/or badge from what I can see.

        I don't even have a Jeep and when I saw the pic I was like "wtf is the difference?" I love Jeeps, I love FPS games, but this Special Edition is pretty lackluster.

      Jeep just doesnt get it.

      30k plus for a glossy black wrangler???

      If they want to put their people on triple shifts, (or even one full shift for quite some time), they need to strip this puppy down, (or go back to 1941 and build up), and put a machine on the road that has two doors, super suspension, powerful 6cyl engine, four wheel dirve, coat the sucker inside and out with a rubber bedliner material, and make it so that it can be hit with a pressure washer inside and out. And sell it for UNDER 18K JEEP IS STUPID STUPID STUPID.
