It appears that some future product information from Jeep has been leaked. The info covers the 2016 Jeep Wrangler’s yet-unannounced Black Bear Edition, an all-new special edition that polishes the Wrangler with some specialty appearance add-ons and interior adornments.

Though we are a couple months ahead of the 2016 model year vehicles hitting showrooms, the product information has surfaced with no word from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Like other special edition trim levels before it, the Black Bear Edition bares some unique finishes on its exterior and a few unique interior bits that Jeep will use to attract fans of the famous Black Bear Road in Telluride, Colorado. The high mountain pass features some of the west’s most scenic yet challenging off-roading, with steep drop-offs and sharp switchbacks.

The Wrangler Black Bear Edition will come with a black grille, bumper appliqués, fuel door, and “Wrangler” hood decals, along with tinted windows, and an optional low gloss black topographical map of the Black Bear Road territory. Inside, the Jeep will feature black seat fabric with mesh inserts and black stitching, black vinyl wrapped console lid and front door armrests, and a black leather-wrapped steering wheel. Other features include the Power Convenience and Connectivity Group packages coming standard, along with the auto-dimming mirror and all-weather slush mats.

Appearances are the only major upgrades to this Wrangler, as its powertrain and 4WD systems are unaltered from the standard Wrangler. That means the 3.6-liter V-6, Command-Trac transfer case, Dana 30 front axle, and Dana 44 rear axle are all in place. The Black Bear Edition does get Jeep’s mid-spec Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires on 17-inch alloys, standard tow hooks, and the same rock rails as the Rubicon.

The leaked document shows pricing will start at $27,895 for the two-door Wrangler and $31,695 for the four-door Wrangler Unlimited.

Beyond the Black Bear Edition, other info regarding other Wrangler trim levels is included in the leaked ordering guide. The Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition will continue for the 2016 model year without any changes, as will the Wrangler Hard Rock Edition.

The 2016 Wrangler will come with other updates, including three new paint options and new Olive Green leather with an embroidered Sahara logo on 2016 Sahara models. The new paint colors will be available on all trim levels. They include Granite Crystal Metallic Clear Coat, Rhino Clear Coat, and coming late in the year, Mojave Sand Clear Coat.

Why it matters

It’s nice to have a head start on knowing what the 2016 model year looks like for the Wrangler, though I’m sure Jeep isn’t too happy about the leaked ordering guide. Its origin is unknown, but it likely came from the dealership network. Regardless, the new Black Bear Edition will slot nicely within the Wrangler trim level line-up, giving customers the chance to customize their Jeep before they even leave the lot.
