Jeep Celebrates 75th Birthday With Anniversary Editions


Entire Lineup Dressed in Green and Bronze

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Jeep name, the company has gone hog wild with green paint and bronze accents. The Wrangler, Renegade, Grand Cherokee, Patriot and Compass all have special 75th Anniversary editions. Although different shades of green that pay homage to Jeep’s military roots are the special shades for the celebration, you can pick a number of other colors as well. Bronze bumpers, wheels and other trim accentuate the green for a stunning visual effect. Stop by your Scottsdale Jeep dealer, Chapman Jeep, today to inquire on when the 75th Anniversary Jeeps will be on the showroom floor.

Wrangler Anniversary Edition Includes Leather, Dome Hood

Set your Wrangler or Wrangler Unlimited apart from the crowd with a bevy of special features in the Anniversary edition. Along with the special paint and wheels, both versions of the Wrangler get a raised dome hood, leather seats and special rock rails. They also come with the Command-Track 4×4 system and a transfer case and rear axle setup geared to take on the toughest trails. Seat heaters and a touchscreen infotainment system provide the creature comforts.

Cherokee, Grand Cherokee Share Anniversary Elements

Both the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee Anniversary editions share features like tangerine stitching on the seats with embroidered anniversary logos, sunroof and touchscreen audio system. Both have special 18-inch wheels, although you can opt for 20-inch rims on the Grand Cherokee. Special bronze grille rings, fog lamp bezels, fascia trim and badges all add to the special look for both these vehicles.

Smaller Jeeps Celebrate Anniversary in Style

Both the 75th Anniversary Compass and Patriot are decked out in Recon Green. The Compass comes with bronze tow hooks, roof rails, step pad, 18-inch wheels and badging. You also get a power sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel and power sunroof. The Patriot has the same features as the Sport model and comes with the same features as the Compass. The Renegade, Jeep’s newest little SUV, celebrates the special occasion in Jungle Green. Grille surrounds, wheels, fog lamp bezels, badges and some other trim are all bronze. It also has a Beats audio system to make those long drives just a little more palatable. Stop by Chapman Jeep to get more information on these special Jeep models.

Willys First Production Jeeps Born in 1941

The first mass production Jeeps were the result of a military need for small, tough vehicles that could travel through any terrain. Although a company named Bantam actually made the first Jeep prototype, the military thought it was too small of an organization to provide the quantity needed and supplied the contract to Willys and Ford. The origin of the Jeep name is thought to be a version of the acronym for “General Purpose.” Thus, GP became Jeep, which is synonymous with off-road driving today.
