For 75 years the Jeep® brand has been undeniably linked to freedom, adventure, and passion. A fundamental part of American Military history, now for all to enjoy.
The brand’s enduring commitment to strength and meaningful engineering has helped forge an extraordinary, uncommon bond between the vehicles and their owners.
Legendary Jeep History
Its role in helping defeat the Axis powers during World War II is undeniable.
On the battlefield, the Jeep was fast, nimble and tough. It could handle nearly any terrain, and when it did get stuck, it was light enough for soldiers to lift free.
It towed anti-tank weapons that could be deployed quickly, and it could mount a machine gun for fighting infantry.
The Jeep also served as an ambulance on the battlefield. It forded rivers and traversed lakes, it came ashore on D-Day, and it carried the Allies all the way to Berlin and onto Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima and, eventually, onto the mainland shores of a defeated Japan.
But Jeep’s postwar life has been a decades long trail of both rousing successes — and abject failures.
