A major milestone for the American off-road manufacturer sees the release of new special edition model variants.

Jeep is celebrating its 80th anniversary with a run of special edition Wrangler Unlimited, Grand Cherokee and Cherokee model variants.

Stock will be available in Jeep dealerships from May 2021, and will be limited to 160 Wrangler Unlimited and Grand Cherokee models each, along with 80 Cherokees.

Pricing for the 80th Anniversary models start from $51,941 before on-road costs for the Cherokee, and goes up to $71,941 for the Wrangler Unlimited.

Jeep 80th Anniversary Special Edition

All models get a leather interior with 80th Anniversary badging, as well as darkened wheels and exterior details. You’ll also find additional unique badging on the outside.

Jeep’s history dates all the way back to the Second World War, with the Willys Jeep first entering production in 1941 for the US Army.

While initially not available to the public, the original designed spawned a range of four-wheel drives marketed towards recreational users. These were called ‘CJ’ (Civilian Jeep), and form the basis of what we now know as the Wrangler.
