Fiat-Chrysler Introduces New Special-Edition Jeep Wrangler Made of Cans
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is always one to keep consumers on their toes with special-edition Jeeps. Recently, the Italian-American carmaker introduced a brand-new Jeep Wrangler that is sure to knock your socks off—especially if you like soup.

To celebrate Canada Day 2015, Jeep and the FCA Foundation came together with Canstruction, Inc., an international non-profit organization that fights hunger and poverty, to create a Jeep Wrangler out of 4,500 cans of food. It took a team of teenagers, aged 12 to 18, 12 hours to piece together this life-size replica of the rugged SUV.
The can-tastic Wrangler was displayed at Vancouver’s waterfront Canada Place, after which it was dismantled. After being dismantled, the Jeep went on to provide 3,120 meals for the hungry through the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.
While you can’t exactly drive this special-edition Wrangler, it represents a great act of charity that can’t be ignored.

This Campbells-esque Wrangler joins another full-size can car that FCA created last year: the Dodge Grand Caravan—or should we say, “Grand Cara-can?” Cheesy puns aside, the can minivan replica was created to celebrate its 30th anniversary, using 30,000 cans that were distributed later as 2,000 food baskets through the Daily Bread Food Bank in Toronto.
