Overview of Jeep
The Definition of an Off-Road Vehicle
Jeep is an American automobile brand with military roots. The original Jeep was the prototype Bantam BRC and was produced as a light 4-wheel-drive vehicle with off road capabilities for the American military during WWII. Willys MB Jeeps first went into production in 1941 with the first civilian models produced in 1945.
Jeeps soon became a symbol of Yankee ingenuity, can-do determination, and adventure, developing a cult following that continues today. Jeep drivers are known to wave to each other as they pass on the road, a camaraderie built purely on a shared love for their lightweight SUVs.
In 1970, American Motor Company purchased Jeep from Kaiser-Jeep (Willys Motors), which was later bought out by Chrysler in 1987.
The Jeep has inspired a number of other light sport utility vehicles, such as the Land Rover.
With their distinctive and common body shape, Jeeps are one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road today.
