Jeep originated when the United States government issued ordinances for cars to be produced during World War II. The Jeep 4×4 was the first Jeep made, which some historians have called “America’s greatest contribution to modern warfare.” The Jeep MB, another war vehicle, was widely modified for long-range desert patrol, saw milling, snow plowing and more.
Although Jeep delved into making passenger cars after World War II, the company refocused its efforts on making cars for the United States Army and for farming. The first civilian Jeep was the CJ, which aided in farming and agriculture. The CJ became known as the “All-Around Farm Work Horse.” Soon, Jeep began selling pickup trucks with four-wheel drive, the first American car make to do so. The Jeep Station Wagon was released in 1946, the Jeep Truck in 1947, and the Jeepster in 1948.
In 1961, Jeep released the two-wheel drive Fleetvan that was designed for light-duty, multi-stop applications such as postal delivery and ice-cream trucks. The Jeep Wagoneer was released in 1962, an SUV that was produced for 28 years – the longest continuous automotive production run in United States history.
The 1970s were a period of great growth and achievement for the company; in 1970, American Motors Corporation purchased Jeep for $70 million. The following year, in 1971, Jeep released the J-10 and J-20 pickup trucks, and by 1974 the Jeep Cherokee had won Four Wheeler magazine’s Achievement Award.
In 1987, Chrysler bought out American Motors Corporation, and Jeep continues to be owned by Chrysler today. Today’s Jeep headquarters are located in Toledo, Ohio. Jeeps continue to be popular vehicles across the country, including locally, on the roads of Orlando, Kissimmee, Hunters Creek, St. Cloud, Florida, and Osceola area.
