GULF WEEKLY: This is a momentous year for Jeep as the off-roading mean machine marks its 80th birthday with the launch of a special series.
The ‘80th Anniversary’ collection, which will be available throughout 2021 in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), will celebrate the brands eight decades of 4x4 leadership, open-air freedom and adventure.
Each model will be based on the best-selling variant including limited-edition models on Renegade, Compass, Wrangler and Gladiator.
The first from the limited collection to debut will be the Renegade, which is already available at Jeep dealerships across Europe. Compass, Wrangler and Gladiator anniversary series will arrive in spring.
All of these models will boast the ‘80th Anniversary’ badging enriched by low-gloss Granite Crystal accents; diamond-pattern cloth seats with tungsten stitching and an ’80th Anniversary’ logo; interior high-gloss black accents and logo tag on seats and mats. Dedicated alloy wheels complete the exterior look of the new commemorative models.
The 4x4’s will also be packed full of advanced technology and safety features. New high-tech content includes 8.4- to 10.1-inch touchscreens, DAB radio and navigation with smartphone integration and Uconnect services, full LED pack and new ‘Since 1941’ infotainment system screen as the brand began that year with the first ever mass-produced 4x4, the Willys MB.
The other models will be launched throughout the year.
