Jeep will celebrate its 75th anniversary with a range of special vehicles, launched all together in the UK market. The special versions feature exclusive branding, a high level of standard equipment, special styling details, unique green paint finishes and ‘75th Anniversary’ badging.
Just 8,000 of the limited edition cars will be built for the entire EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region. Celebratory editions of Jeep Renegade and Cherokee will be the first models to arrive in the UK, with Grand Cherokee and Wrangler following later in the year.
The Renegade 75th Anniversary has a unique Jungle Green livery and comes equipped with either a 1.4-litre turbo MultiAir 170 hp engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission or a 2.0-litre MultiJet 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 4×4 systems. Standard equipment 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 comes in Recon Green and is powered by the new MultiJet 2.2-litre 200 hp turbo diesel engine with either Jeep Active Drive I 4×4 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 panoramic sunroof, are among the standard equipment.
Same treatment for the Wrangler. The 75th Anniversary edition has a Sarge Green body and comes 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 hood with functional air vents, navigation with premium sound system, Ombre Mesh leather seats and body-colour dual top.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary is also dressed in Recon Green. Powered by the 3.0-litre V6 MultiJet 250 hp engine, it is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes 20-inch light alloy wheels, navigation system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and Quadra-Lift air suspension that adjusts ground clearance to five different levels for improved driving dynamics on and off-road. A Nappa leather interior will be available in Morocco Black.
