Jeep's 80th Anniversary celebrations continue in 2021, with Jeep Australia revealing a limited run of Special Edition Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler Unlimited models.

The exclusive '80th Anniversary Special Edition' models will begin arriving in showrooms from May 2021, with prices starting at $51,941.

All vehicles are draped in 80th Anniversary aesthetics on the inside and out, with the Wrangler Unlimited in particular featuring an 80th Anniversary swing gate plaque, which pays homage to the original Willys. The vehicles also pay respect to tradition with the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee getting a Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof; and the Wrangler Unlimited coming with a Sky-One-Touch Power Top.

Another nice touch on all vehicles is the unique greeting received when operating the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, which displays "Since 1941" once activated.

To dig a bit deeper, we'll take a closer look at what each model gets.

Kevin Flynn, Jeep Australia Managing Director, said of the limited edition models: “Since 1941, Jeep SUVs have been renowned for their unparalleled off-road capability and freedom.

"Today, the Jeep range continues to drive best in class 4×4 leadership, as well as leading safety and convenience features, premium craftsmanship and exceptional on-road dynamics.

“We’re excited to mark eight decades of the Jeep brand with these limited-edition models and give Jeep customers the opportunity to own a piece of history.”

In total, Jeep Australia will offer 80 units of the Cherokee and 160 units of both the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee.

This announcement follows the release of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys earlier this year, where a limited run of 130 Willys - inspired by the legendary 1948 Willy Overland CJ-3A - went on sale with an asking price of $61,941.
