Jeep throughout the Years: from Necessity to International Symbol
Not only that people are familiar with the Jeep name, but they also recognize one such vehicle when they see it. This widespread brand, which has served in the Vietnam war, still sells well after 6 decades, as it has great off-road abilities, being the first choice of adventurers.
The Early Days
Jeep is an automobile band belonging to the Chrysler Group. Its history begins with WWII, when the US army got in contact with 3 car manufacturers to build a reliable vehicle for the military. The initial design was provided by the American Bantam company. The vehicle borrowed its name and was known as Bantam BRC. Everything about it except the engine was as required by the army, but because of the week engine the model had to be rejected. Wyllis-Overland signed the contract and it is suspected that it had access to the original plans and technical data. Wyllis eventually came up with the design destined to become popular. Ever since, the band has kept on changing its owners.
The brand has production facilities in 30 countries. In 1941, the first civilian Jeep was launched. American Motors, Renault, Chrysler, Daimler-Benz and later Daimler-Chrysler were among the names that the Jeep was involved with. Today, it is the latter one to produce and market the Jeep. The model list counts: VJ Jeepsters, FC Trucks, FJ Vans, C/DJ/SJ/MJ/XJ/WJ/ZJ/YJ/TJ models, XK models and Kjs. The current lineup has the Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Liberty, Compass and Patriot.
The Jeep Particularities
The ruggedness of the Jeep is well-known in the world to this day. It is reliable on rough terrain, has solid axles that ensure superior ground clearance through bigger tires. Introducing the six-cylinder engine called 'Dauntless' was the moment when Jeep popularity rapidly increased. The 7th decade of the past century saw the Jeep become a sport-utility car. The mass-produced Wagoneer model was indeed of modern type and had, besides the truck engine, the first automatic transmission and independent front suspension. The Gladiator was also a departure from the military design.
The Most Capable Models - Now Getting Better and Better
Jeep's best achievement, the Wrangler, released on the market in 2003, was a pleasant surprise to the industry. Grand Cherokee was redesigned in 2011 and launched as an all-new version, refreshed once again in 2013. The EcoDiesel engine is a precious element of novelty. In 2014, it is Cherokee's turn to be redesigned.
