Jeep 80th Anniversary special edition Gladiator leaks

  • Grey accents, limited-slip, stickers for 80th Anniversary Edition Gladiator

  • Or the Willys with mud-terrain tires, rock rails, and black trim

 


2021 is a big year for Jeep, celebrating 80 years since the birth of the Willys MB, the very first in what is now a very long line of off-roaders. Since this is Jeep, and Fiat Chrysler, we had expected one, if not multiple, special editions to mark the event. Now, thanks to a dealer internal leak, (via Autoweek), we’ve got some details of the 80th anniversary Jeep.

If you check your etiquette guide, 80 years means an oak gift (really, oak??), but rather than add wood trim to the Jeep Gladiator, Jeep is going to be offering a Gladiator Willys and a Gladiator 80th Anniversary.

The former gets black 17-inch wheels with mud-terrain tires and a black grille with other black exterior accents. The fender flares are body colour, but the add-on cab rock rails from the Rubicon are black. Based on the Sport model (as is the 80th), this comes with a Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential and can be fitted with the technology and convenience groups.

For the 80th Anniversary, you get 18-inch wheels and A/T tires as well as neutral grey exterior accents (a nod to the modern gift of pearl for an 80th?). It also has the 8.4-inch audio system display with premium audio, remote start, and body-colour flares.

This probably won’t be the end of the 80th Anniversary Jeep plans, but they’re a good start. Expect order books to open up shortly, and for Jeep to officially announce them and the full 2021 line just ahead of it.
