The brand ‘Jeep’ dates back to almost a century. It was originally owned by American Motors Corporation. Some of the earlier Jeep models have even been used during the World War II. In fact, during those years, Jeep had become one of the most common light 4-wheeler drive vehicles for the U.S Army and its allies. In the year 1987, the brand was bought by FC USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Italian-American automobile giant Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
Over the years, Jeep’s models have been upgraded with high-tech engineering technology. Today, Jeep’s product range extends to off-road vehicles, sport utility vehicles, roadsters, and pick-up trucks.
The brand enjoys a strong presence in the Indian automobile market. The Jeep model was first introduced in India in the 1960s. Originally, Mahindra & Mahindra were the associate partners who manufactured Jeep vehicles in the country. However, in the year 2016, Jeep directly entered the Indian market by launching the ‘Wrangler’ and ‘Grand Cherokee’.
