Following the launch of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys in March, Jeep continues to commemorate its rich heritage of adventure, open-air freedom and superior 4x4 capabilities with a limited run of 80th Anniversary Special Edition models across the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited range.

 “Since 1941, Jeep SUV’s have been renowned for their unparalleled off-road capability and freedom. Today, the Jeep range continues to drive best in class 4×4 leadership, as well as leading safety and convenience features, premium craftsmanship and exceptional on-road dynamics,” said Kevin Flynn, Jeep Australia Managing Director.

“We’re excited to mark eight decades of the Jeep brand with these limited edition models and give Jeep customers the opportunity to own a piece of history.”

The Jeep 80th Anniversary Limited Edition models feature stylish Granite Crystal accents, badging and wheels. The exterior dons a unique 80th Anniversary exterior badge, featuring the side profile of the original open air Willys Jeep and “80th” – celebrating 80 years since the first Jeep rolled off the production line and defined the SUV segment, setting the benchmark for on- and off-road capability and freedom.

The 80th Anniversary aesthetic flows throughout the interior, with black leather upholstery complemented by Light Tungsten accent stitching and an 80th Anniversary seat tag for the front seats. The upgraded Berber floor mats which can be found on the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee, also include 80th Anniversary tags, which feature the original Willys Jeep profile. The 80th Anniversary interior applique can be found on the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee instrument panel, and across the console inside the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited also features an exclusive Jeep 80th Anniversary swing gate plaque, paying homage to the original Jeep Willys.

This special edition range comes standard with Jeep’s award-winning 8.4” Uconnect touchscreen, and customers will be greeted with “Since 1941” across their infotainment welcome screen each time they start the engine of their collector’s model.

To further celebrate this milestone, Jeep Australia has launched Jeep Wave, a comprehensive program providing peace of mind for owners. Jeep Wave is a commitment to Jeep owners, supporting them with a comprehensive Capped Price Servicing program for new vehicles, Lifetime Roadside Assistance when you service through Jeep and 5 Year/ 100,000km Factory Warranty.
