Jeep Reaches Historic 75 Year Milestone
It is now 75 years since Jeep released its first cars, the ground-breaking Jeep Willy MA and MB. To recognise this landmark anniversary, Jeep is releasing limited editions of each of their current models: the Renegade, Wrangler, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee.
Jeep was founded in 1941 with the core aim of providing the US army with vehicles that could safely navigate across a variety of terrains during World War 2. After the war ended they decided to introduce these vehicles to the commercial market and as a result, instantly created what we now call the SUV market. 75 years later, SUVs and 4x4s are an incredibly popular choice for a wide variety of customers.
Throughout their history Jeep have always been at the leading edge of innovation in the 4x4 segment and have always looked to create a comfortable and safe driving experience whilst ensuring their 4x4s remain the market leader in terms of their off-roading capabilities. This mentality and drive have led to Jeep winning more awards than any other SUV brand in history.
75th Anniversary Limited Edition Jeeps
Jeep has decided to honour its rich and successful history by releasing limited editions of its four latest models during their 75th-year in business. Unique features of these high specification limited editions include bronze-finish exterior accents, unique 18-inch bronze finish alloy wheels and a 75th anniversary grab handle. Each vehicle is available in a range of eye-catching colours including jungle green and alpine white.
“...today’s iconic Jeeps... are instantly recognizable and clearly connected to the original Willy MA and MB.,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Global. “Since they were first produced in 1941, Jeep vehicles have been the authentic benchmark for off-road capability, having mastered more terrain, led more adventures and provided drivers more freedom than any other vehicle before or since.”
