Born in the heat of battle, the Go Anywhere, Do Anything® Jeep® 4x4 emerged a hero to thousands of Allied soldiers around the world. The equally heroic civilian Jeep vehicles of the 1940s firmly established the Jeep Brand as the undisputed leader in 4x4 technology.
The 1950s saw the rise of the recreation vehicle, as well as engineering superiority. Grass-roots enthusiasts helped launch Jeep® Jamborees and took the original freedom machine to new heights in sales thanks to seven unique models.
The all-new Jeep® Wagoneer represented unparalleled refinement and innovation. Prestige and individuality ruled the day. The Jeep brand line-up grew to include 14 models — for work, play, recreation and luxuriously capable transportation.
The Jeep® brand's 4x4 leadership continues in the 70's with the introduction of the first full-time 4x4 system. The sporty 2-door full-size Cherokee (SJ) sweeps the 4x4 of the Year awards. Six models help elevate sales to all-time highs.
The all-new Jeep® Cherokee (XJ) introduced helped revolutionize the 4x4 market. The mighty XJ introduced many industry firsts, including: the first compact 4-door SUV, first UniFrame construction, and first full-time 4x4 system with shift-on-the-fly capability.
The all-new 1993 Jeep® Grand Cherokee (ZJ) set a new industry benchmark thanks to its unique balance of on- and off-road capability. The super-capable Wrangler (TJ) with its new coil suspension was introduced in 1997. In 1999 the new Grand Cherokee (WJ) was marketed as the most capable SUV ever. Sales soared to 629K units for the decade.
The radical 2003 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon was the most capable vehicle ever produced by the Jeep brand. A new 4-door Wrangler took the industry by storm. The Compass and Patriot were the first Jeep vehicles to reach into the small cross-utility segment.
The Jeep® brand resonates with consumers around the world as global sales increase to highest point in over 75-year history with 1.41 million units sold worldwide for 2016. Strategic launches of the all-new Grand Cherokee, Renegade and Compass vehicles.
