Jeep has revealed a number of birthday special-edition models, due in Australia later this year, celebrating 75 years “of military history and 4×4 leadership”.

Featured across the range, the 75th Anniversary special-edition pack is fitted to the Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Renegade, and the ageing Compass and Patriot models.

“In honour of the brand’s 75th anniversary, we have created eye-catching, special-edition models of each vehicle in our line-up that celebrate the unparalleled history of the legendary Jeep brand,” Jeep brand chief Mike Manley said.

All variants will be available in a traditional and “Jeep-exclusive” green paint (although they vary from Sarge Green, Recon Green and Jungle Green, depending on the model), along with a range of other shades, defined further below.

Other features with the line-up include Low Gloss Bronze wheels, bronze and orange accents, 75th anniversary badging and a unique interior trim that includes seats finished either with anniversary logos or an Ombre Mesh fabric.

The 75th Anniversary specials will launch in the US later this quarter, with an Australian debut confirmed for later in the year. Jeep is not yet revealing exact timing for Australia, however, and pricing is likewise still to be confirmed.

The carmaker’s local arm also notes that the features below are international specification and may change for Australia (so get your bingo cards out).
