History of Jeep
Jeep, a consolidated subsidiary of Fiat, is an American brand of automobiles that was founded in 1941 by Chrysler Group LLC. Because Jeeps were introduced to the public in 1941, Jeep is the oldest off-road and sport utility vehicle brand. Jeep serves as an inspiration for the design of the Land Rover brand and the military uses different versions of Jeep vehicles for military purposes. By the 1960’s, the Jeep brand expanded to include 14 different models of Jeep vehicles. In 1941, to demonstrate the power behind the Jeep brand, Willys-Overland (=a Motor company) had Irving “Red” Haussman (a test driver) drive up the steps of the United States Capitol. That was the first public showing of Jeep’s off-road capabilities. The Jeep brand went through several owners throughout the years. From Willys-Overland in 1945 to Kaiser Motors in 1953 to American Motors Corporation in 1970 to the most current owner Chrysler in 1987. Jeep models are being built all over the world in places like India, Spain, South America, China and Japan. Although, throughout the years there has been little changes to the Jeep, one specific change took place in the exterior design. Jeep’s are now built with a seven slot front grille design rather than a nine slot grille that they used to be built with in the World War years.
