What's all this about?

This year marks 75 years of the Jeep brand, and to celebrate the anniversary the company has created a range of limited edition models. In total, 8,000 limited edition cars have been allocated to the Europe, the Middle East and Africa; each one gets special paint, 75th Anniversary badging, low gloss bronze wheels, special body inserts and new interior trim. The first models to launch are the Renegade and Cherokee, with the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler arriving later in the year.

Sounds good, can you tell me more?

Priced at £26,795 the Jeep Renegade 75th Anniversary edition is finished in Jungle Green with 18-inch wheels. The fog lamp bezels and roof rails are bronze coloured while the interior can be trimmed in black or sandstone cloth with tangerine stitching. Customers can choose between the 1.4-litre turbo MultiAir II 170hp and 2.0-litre MultiJet II 140hp engines.
Recon Green is the colour chosen for the Cherokee anniversary model (£38,945), which features Nappa leather seats with dual tone Tangerine and Pearl stitching. Power comes from the MultiJet II 2.2-litre 200hp turbodiesel with either the Jeep Active Drive I four-wheel-drive system or Active Drive II with two-speed power transmission units and low mode.
For the Jeep Wrangler 75th Anniversary model there is 'Sarge Green' bodywork, including a matching dual top. The bonnet gets functional air vents, while the headlamp surrounds and grille throats are finished in low-gloss bronze. Ombre Mesh leather seats and a premium sound system are also part of the package.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary model completes the line-up; with Recon Green paint and 20-inch wheels. Inside, there is Morocco Black Nappa leather and a navigation system. Power comes from a 3.0-litre, 250hp MultiJet V6 engine.
Prices for the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee will be confirmed later.
Damien Dally, head of brand, Jeep UK said; "It's a Jeep tradition to celebrate key anniversaries, and 2016 is no exception. Born in 1941, the Jeep brand has a rich heritage which this new line-up of special cars brilliantly acknowledges.
"One of the special features of these 75th Anniversary cars will be the unique green colours, but the choice does not stop there. There are several other paints to choose from, along with a range of options which will help owners to make their special cars even more distinctive."
