2016 was all about Jeep and celebrating its 75th anniversary. Among special editions and events dedicated to clients and friends of the brand, Jeep also launched models that became collectible vehicles. The most recent one is the Jeep Wrangler 75th Salute concept vehicle in celebration of the brand’s legendary history.

The car is a modern interpretation of the Willys MB and  is based on a two-door Wrangler Sport and highlights rugged functionality with heritage design cues, including the absence of B-pillars and doors. The exterior features an olive-drab color scheme that was first seen on military vehicles 75 years ago and is present throughout the Wrangler 75th Salute concept.

Features, including 16-inch steel wheels wrapped in 32-inch military non-directional tires, hood latches, a rear-mounted spare tire, steel front and rear bumpers with tow hooks and low back canvas seats, echo the original military Jeep vehicles. Other features include custom wood hood blocks and side mirrors, as well as bronze commemorative fender badges.
 
To even greater respect to its ancestors, the Jeep Wrangler 75th Salute concept vehicle is built on the same assembly line that has produced the Wrangler in Toledo, Ohio, for decades, and is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
