2011 Jeep Wrangler 70th Anniversary Edition

It seems a little odd that a rugged off-road vehicle like a Jeep Wrangler could be dressed up – as far as the interior is concerned – to the nines. But that’s what Jeep was able to do with the Wrangler 70th Anniversary Edition.

As part of their 70th anniversary celebration, Jeep has decided to roll out special edition models for five of their SUVs: the Compass , Grand Cherokee , Liberty , Patriot , and Wrangler SUVs. Each of the SUVs will come with their own interior upgrades, despite the fact that no exterior modifications and performance tune-ups were made on these vehicles.

Anybody interested in scooping up the special edition Wrangler, and the other variant models, will be glad to know that the brand is set to release the SUVs by the first quarter this year. Color options for all five models will include Bronze Star, Bright Silver, and Black.

Exterior and Interior

The Jeep Wrangler 70th Anniversary Edition has no shortage of interior upgrades, but unfortunately, the same can’t be said for it’s exterior. About the only things done on the Wrangler’s exterior include the addition of a 70th Anniversary Edition logo and a set of 18” wheels.

As for the interior, that’s where things get a little more interesting. There are Dark Olive seats with perforated leather inserts and Chestnut accent stitching and piping, an automatic shift knob with satin-chrome cap bezel, satin-chromed HVAC rings, front door pulls and grab handle, a door armrest center console dressed in Dark Olive with Chestnut accent, a leather steering wheel with Chestnut accent, Berber floor mats with Chestnut binding, unique cluster overlay and needles, Mopar brushed-aluminum sill plates, and a 70th Anniversary logo on the radio screen.

Performance

For all the upgrades done on the interior, the Jeep Wrangler 70th Anniversary Edition doesn’t come with any powertrain upgrades so don’t expect it to come with a monster engine. What it does come with is a 3.8-Liter V6 sequential multi-port injection engine that produces 202 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 237 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

Pricing

The Jeep Wrangler 70th Anniversary Edition can be had for a princely sum of $32,120.

Competition

The Wrangler is Jeep’s off-road SUV, which means that it doesn’t have a lot of competitors compared to other Jeep models. Nonetheless, one rival model that’s a worthy competitor for the Wrangler is Toyota’s FJ Cruiser.

The FJ Cruiser is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 239-horsepower. The pronounced advantage of the FJ Cruiser’s output is right in line with the higher price tag it comes with compared to the Wrangler. Since the car’s a special edition model, then it becomes a matter of preference. Style over substance, or substance over style?

LOVE IT
  • Rugged exterior, dressed-up interior
  • It’s tough all around
  • Classic look never gets old
LEAVE IT
  • Dressed up off-roader tough to get dirty
  • The FJ Cruiser is a pretty nice alternative
  • A little on the expensive side

Truck looks aggressive though I can sense that its not the best option when talking about the pricing!

I really love those jeep! I think they are the coolest off road vehicle best option when looking for off-road adventure! The wheels seems reliable for this kind of trip!

I can say this type of model cars is versatile,It usually use especially to the mountain side or forest for campaign or even hiking purposes.

lovely paint job and at the same time the interior looks nice, classy and elegant, for sure every money you spent here is worthy.

yes trash the Humvee good, well actually the main concern with the jeep 70th anniversary edition is the interior, jeep make sure that this big boys is elegant and classy inside but rough on the outside.

it looks great but they forgot to include the step board and front bull bar, I like it more than the Humvee. fuel consumption is fare and the cost is also reasonable.

great interior, all of this SUV is petrol and has the same leather cream and dark cream tones on the Seats, pretty good does it? but not the fuel consumptions. I bet you pocket will drop its tears with blood.

I like it because of the Interior design, most cheapest of all SE models and the patriot is face lifted. but the problem is the performance they focused more on the looks and not on the performance.

same here bro, it looks more rugged, tough, rigid, and never gets old, but what I don’t like about it is the price, its a little bit high can FJ Cruiser.

agree better if they used a diesel here with a CRDi engine, so they’ve create another gas gussling SUV.. i hope they can sell more of this trucks.

dang i want to have it, for sure FJ Cruiser cannot compete with this monster, this one is already a legend in off road and became a benchmark of hardcore off roaders.

what no diesel? sorry not for me, wish they would produce a real jeep, bare bones don’t know what good a berber carpet is while off roading, put in a rubber floor it would probably be better received.
