Jeep introduces new Wrangler 1941 special edition to mark 80th birthday

The limited-run is said to be the most capable Wrangler yet

Jeep is continuing its 80th birthday celebrations with the unveil of a special-edition Wrangler 1941. 

Named after the year Jeep was founded, this model aims to expand the appeal of what this American firm has always been known for – its cars’ outstanding off-road ability. And Jeep claims the Wrangler 1941 is its most capable model yet. 

Each model is adapted at the factory to include a two-inch suspension lift kit, as well as enhanced rear underbody protection to make it even more rugged away from the tarmac. It also gains wheel arch extensions to give it a more aggressive look, along with a hardtop headliner and black styling accents – including to the door sill guards, filler cap and splash guards.

The modifications come from Jeep’s in-house Mopar customisation arm, and have been designed and engineered specifically for this new model.  

The Wrangler is Jeep’s best-known model, and continues plenty of the styling traits – such as the slotted grille and round headlights – that was found on the original Willys Jeep. While the firm had previously announced new special editions of its Renegade and Wrangler to mark its 80th anniversary, this new model is far more extreme. 

Just 41 examples of the Wrangler 1941 are set to come to the UK, with buyers having the choice of four colours – Brilliant Black, Granite Crystal, Firecracker Red and Billet Silver.

Prices for the new special edition start from £58,500, with order books now open.
