Jeep Celebrates 80th Anniversary With Limited Edition Legendary ModelsSeptember 25, 2020
Next year will be a special one in the history of the Jeep brand. The automaker will celebrate its 80th anniversary as the undisputed leader in the 4WD segment, inextricably linked with the love of adventure and the spirit of freedom.
As AutoTimesNews reminds, the Jeep founded in 1941 has always been the first, paving the way for others in the field of new technologies, and completely new market segments. Its legend began with the Willys MB, the first production all-wheel-drive car, and continued in 1949 with the Willys Wagon, the first civilian SUV.
In Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the date will be celebrated throughout 2021. Jeep’s anniversary program includes a whole series of special events that will start from the first days of January and will give fans of the legendary brand the opportunity to get closer to the brand and its heritage. In honor of this event, the company will also release several unique models in a special edition dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the brand’s birth.
These vehicles will feature striking design features from both the outside and the inside, including special seat trims, unique wheels and special commemorative insignia. Powered by combustion engines and hybrid powertrains, and utilizing the most advanced technology and safety systems, the anniversary models will showcase Jeep’s unparalleled 4×4 capabilities. Jeep 80th Anniversary vehicles offered in EMEA will go on sale in late 2020 / early 2021.
As Jeep celebrates its anniversary, it begins writing an exciting new chapter in its history. The launch of the Jeep Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe – the first plug-in hybrid Jeep vehicles in EMEA – and the debut of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid in early September in Detroit, showed the brand’s promise of electrifying. In the next few years, every Jeep SUV lineup will feature an electrified model. Moving in this direction underscores Jeep’s commitment to becoming a leader in sustainable mobility technologies.
All Jeep electrified models will feature the 4xe extension, already synonymous with efficiency, agility and driver confidence in their vehicle. Jeep 4xe models embody a modern vision of capabilities that strike a golden balance between efficiency, driving pleasure and respect for the environment.
Additional information on the 80th Anniversary Limited Edition will be released closer to the start of sales in each of the countries, the schedule of which may vary.
