ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

This probably comes under the heading of: “Time flies when you’re having fun.” Because Jeep recently announced that the marque is celebrating its 70th anniversary, having started production in 1941 with the Willys MA.

Fortunately, Jeep will not be getting all nostalgic and re-making that capable but hardly comfortable machine. Instead, it is producing 70th Anniversary editions of every vehicle in its current range.

That means custom paintwork in Bronze Star, Bright Silver or black, Berber carpet mats with chestnut binding, plus a varied inventory of cosmetic and premium features that differ from model to model. Here’s a brief run-down:

2011 Jeep Compass 70th Anniversary Edition

Starting at $24,970, this model has 18-inch alloy wheels, Dark Slate seats with perforated leather inserts and chestnut accents, plus a dark green overlay for the instrument cluster.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 70th Anniversary Edition

This iteration starts at $36,550 and sports 20-inch wheels, Dark Olive trim with perforated leather seating inserts, black leather steering wheel cover, satin chrome/graphite/Black Lacewood interior trim, a cluster overlay, and splashes of chestnut accents.

2011 Jeep Liberty 70th Anniversary Edition

For $25,515, the Liberty variant enjoys 18-inch wheels, bright side moldings and roof rails, a choice of Dark Olive or Dark Slate interior trim, Black Lacewood highlights and Mopar stainless steel sill plates.

2011 Jeep Patriot 70th Anniversary Edition

From $22,870, the Patriot edition features similar appointments to the Compass, but with 17-inch aluminum wheels.

2011 Jeep Wrangler 70th Anniversary Edition

This venerable model starts at $29,420 for the two-door version and $32,120 for the four-door Unlimited. Along with the usual dark olive trim complemented by chestnut accents, the Wrangler edition is spruced up with some satin chrome highlights, 18-inch wheels and Mopar brushed aluminum sill plates.

In addition, each vehicle will wear special 70th Anniversary badges and have the same commemorative logo on their radio screens. All prices quoted include destination. These Jeep special-edition vehicles should be in the showrooms starting this February.
