Jeep Motors-Always There And Still Solid

ShiftMost of our brave military service members see them in daily life. Any civilian who watches movies or maybe an old episode of M*A*S*H* on TV would recognize one in a second. You sure don’t have to be driving an army jeep to know what a Jeep is. That’s where I was heading with that. At home in sand, mud or dry road, the jeep is a very versatile four-wheel drive vehicle with multi-uses. Let us begin with the first jeeps.

They were called Willys and popped onto the military scene as an army jeep in 1941. The general public saw them arrive in the civilian market in 1945. Jeep is owned by Chrysler which is itself a subsidiary of Fiat. How about that very strange but nonetheless common name? It probably came from the military designating the vehicle for GP. GP could be interpreted as either Government Purpose or General Purpose.

Whatever it stands for, if you say GP fast enough, it comes out pretty much… jeep. Others claim that it was actually named affectionately after Eugene the Jeep, a character from the old Popeye the Sailor cartoons. We will let them fight over the origin of the Jeep name.

Taking a look at the various models, the army jeeps used many, many combinations of letters and numbers for designation. The CJ or civilian jeep models came around in 1945 as stated earlier. Soon after came the DJ or dispatcher jeep models. These hit the scene in 1955. The next decade welcomed the arrival of the SJ or FSJ models. These were the first full size jeeps, much larger than the army jeeps were, and their birth year was 1963. From 1984 until the turn of the century the XJ Cherokee models were very popular. The Cherokee name changed often as the years went by. Some of the XL models other names were:

  • Chief
  • Pioneer
  • Laredo
  • Sport
  • Briarwood

There is a great choice of current models still to this day. These models are:

  • Jeep Wrangler
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Jeep Liberty
  • Jeep Compass
  • Jeep Patriot


This vehicle serves so many purposes and is so versatile. The idea was copied and similar type vehicles were, and are, manufactured in other countries around the world. The army jeep from the past right up to the current Jeeps we see today have themselves been manufactured in at least 24 other countries. Has there been any other vehicle in history as recognizable, or one that has served a greater purpose than the Jeep? I don’t think you can name one. As we thank our military and civilian members of the armed forces for their sacrifice and service, maybe we should also throw out a salute to the good old army jeep.
