History of Jeep

Go Anywhere, Do Anything® is the history, present, and future of Jeep.  Jeep opens up a life of possibilities, and has been doing that since its inception in 1940.

  

*1941 Jeep

1940s-

The first Jeep was the Willys Quad which was created in 1940 to help the U.S. Army for World War II.  Throughout the early1940s, the Willys Quad, Willys MA, and Willys MB were all produced for military use. In the late 1940s, Jeeps were no longer being produced for just the military.  Many of the Jeeps in the late 1940s were meant to be used as work vehicles.
