It’s been 75 years since Jeeps started rolling off assembly lines and, since then, these dependable and durable vehicles have become synonymous with rugged off-roading. To celebrate its success, Jeep is offering six models as nods to those early years.
Born of military-toughness and the need for capable 4×4 capacity able to tackle any terrain, Jeep vehicles have borne service members through combat zones, successfully navigated previously unexplored regions of Earth, and have been safely taking drivers and their families anywhere and everywhere.
“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. “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.”
These Jeep 75th Anniversary Edition vehicles will feature Sarge Green, Recon Green, or Jungle Green colors, depending on the model chosen, bronze wheels, and either bronze or orange exterior accents, among other refinements. Each 75th Anniversary Edition models featuring either exclusive seats embossed with the Jeep 75th Anniversary Edition logo or one-of-a-kind Ombre mesh fabric interior.
The Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited 75th Anniversary Edition models will include leather-trimmed heated special edition mesh seats, Silent Armor tires, and unique off-road rock rails, among many other features. Jeep’s 2016 Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition will offer new Gore-Tex seat cloth inserts with leather trimming and heated functionality, embossed with the 75th logo and stitched with tangerine threads.

And, last but not least, the 2016 Jeep Patriot 75th Anniversary Edition will build on much of what the Compass had, but includes 17-inch wheels, roof rails, front fascia applique, rear step pad, badges, tow hooks, and more.
