Jeep launching 75th anniversary editions

Jeep launching 75th anniversary editions

This year is Jeep’s 75th birthday, having been founded in 1941 out of the demand for a capable vehicle for the army. That’s quite the milestone for any company, let alone a company in such a cutthroat and fast-moving industry. To celebrate making it this far, Jeep are launching some special 75th anniversary editions of their top models.

The six special models include  the Wrangler, Renegade, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Compass and Patriot. All feature slightly different elements but include special green body colours and bronze alloy wheels, orange internal trim and special badging throughout.

The green paint is reminiscent of those first Willys Jeeps and go all the way to honouring that past. There are apparently three shades to choose from, Sarge Green, Recon Green, or Jungle Green. However, you can still order one of these Jeep 75th anniversary editions in a standard colour should you not like the green.

According to FCA, the range will include:
