Jeep is a subsidiary car brand belonging to the Chrysler group. Because it is the oldest and best-known manufacturer of SUVs and SUVs on the planet, the word “Jeep” has become a common term describing sport utility and off-road vehicles.
The first Jeep and praying for the US military who needed a rugged and reliable car that could drive on all terrains and in all weather conditions. They needed an off-roader that could simply be transported around the globe and was easy to maintain, so the early Jeep models were the perfect solution to the wishes of the military. The first large-scale Jeep was the M715 model that was used primarily in the Vietnam War.
The civilian models were derived from the army cars produced by Jeep in the 1950s and 1960s, thus maintaining their wonderful off-road capabilities. In truth, for several years, enthusiasts around the world who wanted a car to reach the highest peaks bought the only recalled cars ready to deliver such intense performance. Jeep currently sells several SUV models, the best known of which are the Wrangler, Commander, Compass and Patriot.
The model that brought Jeep world fame as it appeared to be a small, compact, simple, and fun-to-drive vehicle, it was ready to hit areas other cars could only wish for. Jeep began production of the Wrangle in 1987 and because it resembles the military Jeeps of the 1960s and 1970s, the world fell in love with this car.
The models produced between 1987 and 1995, the YJ series, offered great comfort for a pure off-road vehicle and was also available as a convertible model. Over the years, Jeep added more sophisticated features to its Wrangler models, including a roll cage that protects all cars, antilock brakes, and power steering.
The second generation Wrangler was produced between 1996 and 2006 and was more refined, offered more comfort and better road handling than the previous model.
The current generation Wrangler is larger than its forebears and offers stronger, more economical engines and is the most comfortable Wrangler yet. The Grand Cherokee is another Jeep hit, as it was the company’s best-selling midsize SUV over the years.
Jeep wanted a bigger model to hold more people and could offer more comfort than the Wrangler and in 1993 they released the first Grand Cherokee model. The Grand Cherokee is today in its third generation and, along with the Patriot and Commander models, offers the world’s most advanced 4×4 drive system (also known as).
To expand its car models, Jeep has launched two other car families, the Patriot and the Compass. Both the Jeep Patriot and Compass models were launched in 2007 and are delegates of the company’s intention to offer greener and more reliable cars. Jeep dealers have to face stiff competition in the SUV segment and with these new models they need to reposition themselves as the most successful SUV manufacturer on the planet.
