Production is limited to just 41 examples.
Jeep is celebrating its 80th anniversary in style this year with a slew of special edition versions of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler, Gladiator, Compass, Renegade, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee. Each model features unique exterior and interior accents, 80th Anniversary badging, and special wheels among other enhancements.
Continuing the 80th birthday celebrations, Jeep has revealed yet another special-edition Wrangler dubbed the Wrangler 1941, but this one won't be going on sale in the US. Based on the four-door Wrangler Rubicon, the limited-edition Jeep Wrangler 1941 will be sold exclusively in the UK and comes equipped with an array of extra accessories designed specifically for the commemorative off-roader.
As standard, the Wrangler 1941 is fitted with a two-inch suspension lift kit, extended wheel arches, and enhanced rear underbody protection, improving the SUV's off-roading capability. Visually, the special-edition Wrangler is distinguished with a black-painted fuel filler cap, door sill guards, and front and rear splash guards, along with a 1941 hood decal honoring Jeep's heritage.
Inside, the cabin features a hardtop headliner and all-weather floor mats as standard. Like the regular Wrangler Rubicon sold in the UK, the 1941 edition is powered by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine producing 197 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Available in Brilliant black, Granite Crystal, Firecracker red or Billet silver, the Jeep Wrangler 1941 will be limited to just 41 units. Orders are now open in the UK, with pricing starting at £58,050. That's around $80,770, making it considerably more expensive than America's Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, which starts at $38,695.
In the US, the four-door Jeep Wrangler 80th Anniversary Edition starts at $39,490, but it doesn't come with any rugged Jeep Performance Parts like the Wrangler 1941. Instead, you get Granite Crystal 18-inch wheels, body-color fenders, new exterior color options, an 8.1-inch touch screen, and 80th Anniversary badging applied to the exterior and floor mats.
