The History of Jeep


The History of Jeep

Jeep was the original War Machine. Launched in the 1940s, the four-wheel-drive vehicle originally designed for WWII. Jeep also conceived a model for civilians around the same time and the sturdy vehicles became a hot favorite both in the war and at home. The following decade, the popularity of Jeep really grew with the manufacturers launching seven new models.

The 60s saw the launch of the stylish Jeep Wagoneer, which soon associated with prestige and refinement. The sporty Cherokee playfully bounded onto the scene in the 70s and was an instant hit. The Cherokee won several awards for four-wheel drive and was one of the coolest-looking vehicles around.

Jeep's reliability and popularity continued through the 80s with their Cherokee XJ model becoming the 4x4 of choice for people all across the board. Then came the 90s and Jeep did something spectacular! 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee was out, and it looked better than anything that Jeep had launched before. With a more athletic look, cleaner lines, and a better suspension, this model was more capable than ever for off-roading.

The 2000s did not slow the Jeep down. The four-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon once again proved that with four-wheel drive and off-roading, Jeep is still the most trusted name. The vehicles took on a more stylish look but were tough vehicles through and through. 

Jeep’s latest offering, the all-new Grand Cherokee, Renegade, and its Compass Vehicles continue to take the markets by storm until the present date.
