Made available to the public after WWII, the classic jeeps of the 1940s became popular as the practical, go-anywhere, do-anything 4x4. Produced by Willys and then Chrysler, the beloved vehicle evolved over the decades into more of a recreational vehicle. The Wagoneer, Cherokee, and various truck models added a robust selection of body types for different applications. The combination of reliability and off-road capability has been associated with the Jeep brand for generations. The iconic Jeep Cherokee is just one of the many models that have opened the market for everyday adventure vehicles.

Jeep Cherokee is more rugged than the typical crossover vehicle, available with options (like the Trailhawk) tailored for outdoor adventures. The Grand Cherokee replaced the Wagoneer in 1993 as Jeep's mid-size luxury SUV, and it has since been refined with a softer body style and more powerful engine. The Jeep Wranglers may superficially resemble the Willys CJs (civilian jeeps) of the post-war era, but the body, frame, and other components are fundamentally different. With interiors and drivetrains initially borrowed from the Cherokee lines, Wrangler was comfortable enough for the daily commute. The Wrangler Unlimited has a longer wheelbase, which gives it an increased towing capacity.
