As any automaker having a birthday is wont to do, Jeep is celebrating its 80th birthday with special editions all across its lineup. (1940 was the year the U.S. military solicited companies to pitch a design for what would eventually become the World War II Jeeps produced by Willys and Ford; the word wouldn’t become a registered trademark, and thus an official brand, under Willys until 1950.) Indeed, every 2021 Jeep thus gains an 80th Anniversary Edition, which Jeep previously announced but took until now to finally release some photos of the things. These models arrive in dealerships during the fourth quarter of the year.
Features vary somewhat on the 80th Anniversary Editions, but all are well equipped. They have several design details in common, including an available Granite Crystal paint job with matching wheels, anniversary badging, and the full-bore 8.4-inch UConnect touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The rundown of each model is as follows:
2021 Jeep Cherokee 80th Anniversary Edition: The Cherokee 80th loads up with leather upholstery and Light Tungsten stitching, power front seats with lumbar adjustment, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, Berber floor mats, a black headliner, and Anodized Gunmetal interior trim.
2021 Jeep Compass 80th Anniversary Edition: This one features leather seats with Light Tungsten accents, as well as piano black and Anodized Gunmetal interior accents and Berber floor mats. An automatically dimming rearview mirror, a black headliner, and a power driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment are also in the mix.
2021 Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition: Check out the Wrangler stuff below, and samesies.
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee 80th Anniversary Edition: This one gets leather seats and Light Tungsten interior accents. These models also come with the ProTech II Package featuring a host of driver-assistance technologies including full-speed forward collision warning with active braking, parallel and perpendicular park assist, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and other features.
2021 Jeep Renegade 80th Anniversary Edition: The littlest Jeep also gets the fewest upgrades, adding dual-zone automatic climate control, Berber floor mats, a black headliner, and the Anodized Gunmetal trim bits.
2021 Jeep Wrangler 80th Anniversary Edition: The special Wrangler has body-color fender flares as well as Neutral Grey Metallic grille surrounds, headlamp rings, and fog-lamp bezels. Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain tires are wrapped around the 18-inch wheels, while the cabin has stylish diamond embossed cloth seats with an 80th Anniversary tag, as well as Berber floor mats and Anodized Gunmetal accents.
In addition, for 2021 Jeep is extending its Wave Customer Care program to all vehicles, whether leased or purchased. This service includes three years of free maintenance, including oil changes and tire rotations, as well as 24/7 support via phone or online chat. Other features include first-day rental and trip-interruption coverage, plus VIP access to unspecified but totally exclusive Jeep events.
