Jeep Wrangler


The original four-wheel-drive Jeep was developed for the U.S. Army by Willys-Overland. Production began in 1941; the earliest models were shipped around the globe to help the Allies during World War II. After the war, Willys secured the Jeep trademark, and the first civilian Jeep, 1945’s CJ-2A, went on sale aimed at farmers and others in need of a vehicle that could work off-road. The 1976 CJ-7 introduced popular creature-comfort options such as an automatic transmission and a molded plastic hardtop. The first-generation Wrangler replaced the CJ-7 for the 1987 model year, and 20 years later the four-door Wrangler Unlimited added a new chapter to this ever-evolving story. Today, Jeep is owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and the latest Wrangler retains serious off-road capability and immediately recognizable Jeep style as two of its defining features.
