Jeep 75th anniversary camp in Barcelona

A momentous 75th anniversary full of history!

"New 75th anniversary special editions available in the Middle East across the entire Jeep lineup."

"As part of the diamond anniversary celebrations, we wish Jeep another 25 years to celebrate their first century!"

"To celebrate this tremendous occasion, I spent the day with Jeep in 2016 75th anniversary models exploring some of the beautiful scenery Barcelona has to offer," said Khaled.

Mike Manley, head of Jeep Brand FCA Global, stated: "Jeep vehicles have defined the authentic SUV and set the benchmark for off-road capability and freedom since they were first produced in 1941."

I flew from Dubai to Barcelona, Spain to celebrate over 75 years of legendary Jeep heritage; the authentic sport utility vehicle (SUV) with class-leading capability, craftsmanship and versatility for people who seek extraordinary journeys. Although I tuned my Wrangler back in Dubai, I couldn’t say anything but, "Wherever a Jeep crosses, others cannot!"

75th anniversary special edition on all models
This year, to celebrate its 75 years of history, the legendary Jeep brand is introducing the 75th anniversary special edition offered on all models of the lineup, including Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, Renegade, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee.

Produced in limited quantities - only 8,000 units for the entire EMEA region - all 75th anniversary models are distinguished by exclusive features, such as special exterior styling enhanced by distinctive low-gloss bronze wheels, bronze and orange exterior accents, and a dedicated 75th anniversary exterior badge.

In the cabin, seats are made of a special fabric upholstery and embossed with a 75th anniversary logo. All 75th anniversary special edition models will be available in a variety of colors, including a new Jeep-exclusive green exterior paint (different for each model and including Sarge Green, Recon Green or Jungle Green) that will be available only on these celebratory special edition models.
