The Jeeps helping to celebrate the 4x4 firm’s 80th birthday

Jeep is launching a number of special editions to help mark its big anniversary

Few cars have remained quite as true to their roots as Jeep, which has continued to stick to its focus of being a 4x4 firm throughout the years. 

In fact, this American manufacturer is now marking 80 years of business this year, and though celebrations under current restrictions might not be as lavish as the company might have liked, it’s launching a number of new special editions to mark the anniversary. 

Let’s take a look at what’s been shown off so far… 

Jeep Wrangler 1941

Named after the year Jeep was established, this Wrangler 1941 promises to be the most capable model yet from the firm – impressive considering the Wrangler is already one of the best off-roaders on the market today.

Models come modified from the factory with a two-inch suspension lift kit to make it ride even higher, while it gets special anniversary decals and a host of special touches – black door guards, front and rear splash guards and wheel arch extensions to name just a few features. 

Just 41 examples of this Wrangler special edition are coming to the UK, with prices starting from £58,050. 

Jeep Renegade 80th Anniversary

The Renegade is now Jeep’s most popular car in the UK, bringing the firm’s chunky and cool styling into a more affordable and cheaper-to-run package. 

And Jeep is unsurprisingly marking its success with a new 80th Anniversary model, which comes painted in a cool Granite Crystal colour, along with large 18-inch alloy wheels and further grey accents throughout the car.

Inside, it benefits from a dark black look thanks to its headlining and leather seats, while also coming with an extensive list of standard equipment, including adaptive cruise control with intelligent speed assist, traffic sign recognition and a system that can detect if a driver is drowsy. 

Jeep Wrangler 80th Anniversary

Yes, that’s right, the Wrangler is available in two special edition forms, with the second being the ‘80th Anniversary Edition’. 

It comes painted in a metallic Neutral Grey colour, while also coming with specific two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels and full LED headlights, as well as new badging to mark it out from the standard car. 

The interior tweaks are much the same as the same as the Renegade, and include black leather seats, a leather-wrapped dashboard and new floor mats. The regular equipment list remains generous, though, and includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Alpine sound system and keyless entry and start.
