As a tribute to U.S. military members past and present, the Jeep brand has created the new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom edition.
Available in red, white or blue, the new Jeep Wrangler Freedom edition features a military-inspired star decal on the hood and rear quarter panels, along with an “Oscar Mike” (military jargon for “on the move”) fender badge.
Jeep will donate $250 from each Wrangler Freedom Edition it sells to charities that benefit U.S. military members. Specifically, funds will be split between the Fisher House Foundation and the I Support Foundation.[ Also Read: How to Drive Digital and Social Cars ]
Fisher House Foundation provides a “home away from home” for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury, while the I Support Foundation provides resources to troops returning home – such as jobs and various healthcare needs – and issues grants to 40 charities that provide valuable services to U.S. veterans.
“The Jeep brand has a long, renowned history that began with its significant presence and success within the U.S. military,” said Mike Manley, president and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.
The new 2012 Wrangler Freedom edition is now available in Jeep showrooms, the company said Friday, June 29.
