Jeep 75th anniversary special-edition models revealed

Jeep has revealed a series of special edition 75th anniversary models inspired by Jeep’s military heritage…

JEEP CELEBRATES 75 years “of 4×4 leadership, military history, and open-air freedom” this year and has created a special-edition of each vehicle in its line-up. In the local announcement of this line-up, Jeep Australia said local pricing would be confirmed closer to the local launch… but it gave no indication of when that might be. We’ve asked and will update this story when we hear back.

“Jeep vehicles have defined the authentic SUV and set the benchmark for off-road capability and freedom since they were first produced in 1941,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global. “Today, Jeep SUVs continue to deliver 4×4 leadership, as well as fuel efficiency, world-class craftsmanship and premium on-road dynamics.
 
“In honor of the brand’s 75th anniversary, we have created eye-catching, special-edition models of each vehicle in our lineup that celebrate the unparalleled history of the legendary Jeep brand,” Manley added.
 
All 75th Anniversary special-edition models will be available in Jeep-exclusive Green exterior paint (Sarge Green, Recon Green or Jungle Green, depending on model), Low Gloss Bronze wheels, Bronze and Orange exterior accents, unique interiors, including exclusive seats with embossed 75th Anniversary logo or one-of-a-kind Ombre Mesh fabric, open-air freedom and a 75th Anniversary exterior badge.
