Jeep launches 75th Anniversary models

A new limited edition range of Jeep vehicles is being launched to celebrate the brand’s 75th Anniversary.

The special models feature exclusive branding, a ‘high level’ of standard equipment, special styling details, unique green paint finishes (among other colour choices) and ‘75th Anniversary’ badging.

Limited to 8,000 cars, each will be built for the entire Europe, Middle East and Africa region. Celebratory editions of Jeep’s Renegade and Cherokee will be the first models to arrive in the UK with the Grand Cherokee, and the Wrangler following later in the year.

All 75th Anniversary models are distinguished by a new livery, a 75th Anniversary badge, low gloss bronze wheels, bronze and orange exterior inserts and exclusive interiors with seats sporting the 75th Anniversary logo in relief (with the exception of Renegade).

The Renegade 75th Anniversary sports a unique 'Jungle Green' livery and comes equipped with either a 1.4-litre turbo MultiAir II 170 hp engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission or a 2.0-litre MultiJet II 140 hp engine with a choice of either a six-speed manual or a nine-speed automatic transmission and Active Drive and Active Drive Low 4x4 systems. Standard spec includes 18-inch wheels, the MySky sunroof with removable panels, bronze-coloured fog lamp bezels, roof rails, and new, specific fabric seats in either Black or Black and Sandstorm cloth with Tangerine stitching.

Jeep’s Cherokee 75th Anniversary model comes in 'Recon Green' and is powered by the new MultiJet II 2.2-litre 200 hp turbo diesel engine with either Jeep Active Drive I 4x4 system or Active Drive II with two-speed power transmission units and low mode. Nappa leather seats with dual tone Tangerine/Pearl stitching, 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen radio, bi-xenon headlamps, heated steering wheel and dual pane panoramic sunroof, are among the standard equipment.

The Jeep Wrangler 75th Anniversary edition will come in 'Sarge Green' and is equipped with either a 2.8-litre 200 hp turbo diesel or a 3.6-litre 284 hp petrol engine. Standard equipment includes body-colour grille, low gloss bronze headlamp surrounds and grille throats, ‘Power Dome’ bonnet with functional air vents, navigation with premium sound system, Ombre Mesh leather seats and body-colour dual top.

The line-up is completed by the Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary edition also featuring Recon Green paint finish. Powered by the 3.0-litre V-6 MultiJet 250 hp engine, it is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Running on 20-inch light alloy wheels, a navigation system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and Quadra-Lift air suspension that adjusts ground clearance to five different levels are all standard. A Nappa leather interior will be available in Morocco Black.

Prices for the Jeep Renegade 75th Anniversary edition will start at £26,795 OTR, while the new Cherokee 75th Anniversary edition will cost from £38,945 OTR. Prices for the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee versions will be announced later in the year.
