Background on Jeep
Jeep is an American automobile brand owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (abbreviated as FCA), the seventh-largest automobile manufacturer in the world. The Jeep division (headquartered in Toledo, Ohio) operates through FCA’s wholly owned subsidiary, FCA US LLC.
The Jeep started as a four-wheel-drive vehicle which was used by the United States Armed Forces in World War II. It was so widely popular that “Jeep” became the generic term for vehicles, including trucks, with rough-road capabilities. The registered trademark known as Jeep was awarded in June 1950 to Willys-Overland, the only company that persisted in manufacturing Jeep vehicles after the war. Over the years, Jeep has built a reputation of producing sport utility vehicles (SUV) known for their off-terrain prowess.
