The term Jeep is commonly used for referring towards all forms of SUV no matter the vehicle of interest is a true jeep or not.

This vehicle became prominent during the time of World War II as a four wheel drive vehicle for military that was manufactured by the following:
  • Willys-Overland
  • Ford for US Army

Interesting thing is from where this term originated is actually an enigmatic it is believed that it came from GP while some also think that this was a pet name that was taken from one of the characters of the popular Popeye comic.

In the middle of 1940 first ever jeep for civilians was introduced it was known as CJ-2A. Many features were included in this one that were not present in the military forms like:
  • tailgate
  • fuel cap
  • side-mounted spare tire
They received good appreciation and two more models were introduced in the year 1950s that were named as CJ-3B, CJ-5. The latter enjoyed a great reputation and stayed on demand for an extended period of time. It stayed in the market for 30 years. In the 1953 the Willys Overland was purchased by Kaiser.

This vehicle was brought forward for energetic families also this was the earliest SUV that were 4 wheel drive vehicles which also contained automated transmission. As a choice upon CJ-5 and CJ 6 "Dauntless" V6 was introduced in the year 1965. For the first time Jeep CJ was combined with V6.

During 1970s the Kasier Jeep was purchased by American Motors Corporation and brought forward new models like Cj-7.

It is important to mention that Cherokees attained the status of being the new generation of SUV and their popularity increased with the passage of time. Wrangler took the place of CJs in 1987 and provided the main qualities of CJ along with many other privileges. In the similar year American Motors was purchased by Chrysler and jeep became a part of Chrysler group.
