From the newly unveiled Ram 1500 Rebel, to Dodge's popular Blacktop models, no other automaker seems to love special edition models quite like the Fiat Chrysler bunch. And if a recent trademark filing is any indication, FCA could have yet another special model on its way to buyers in the future.
FCA filed for the Golden Eagle trademark with the United States Trademark and Patent Office on December 12, 2014. If the Golden Eagle name sounds familiar to you, it should: it was first used on special edition Jeep models in the late '70s, and as recently as 2006.
Golden Eagle edition Jeeps typically carried special eagle graphics and gold wheels, hence the name.
Considering FCA's track record and the use of the name, it wouldn't be at all suprising to see a new Golden Eagle edition of the Jeep Wrangler or even the Cherokee appear in showrooms soon. However, it should be noted that automakers constantly take precautions to protect historically significant trademarks such as the Golden Eagle name, and that could simply be what FCA is doing here.
