    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: 75th Anniversary Jeep Models Suit Up in Green and Bronze

Recommended Posts

2016-Jeep-75th-Anniversary-Edition-PLACEMENT

-

While a 75th anniversary is generally called a diamond anniversary, things are a little different for Jeep, which reaches that milestone this year. A diamond-encrusted Jeep would just be silly, though, so the company instead is decking out its 75th Anniversary models in special green paint (although other colors can be specified) and lots of bronze accents. Wearing the green and bronze are 75th Anniversary editions of the Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Compass, Patriot, and Renegade.

The interior features leather seats with mesh inserts, seat heaters, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen audio system with Uconnect and SiriusXM satellite radio. Other equipment includes special rock rails, a power-dome hood, Command-Trac four-wheel drive with a 2.72:1 transfer case, a 3.21:1 rear axle ratio, a Dana 30 front axle, a Dana 44 rear axle, and Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires.

The 75th Anniversary Jeeps arrive at dealerships in the first quarter. If you still think these Jeeps need a little diamond bling, there’s always the Bedazzler.
