The Jeep brand, the authentic SUV brand since 1941, is available in over 140 countries with a full line of SUVs for life’s extraordinary journeys.

​​​​​​​

Founded in 1941, the Jeep brand is a global icon, recognized around the world for its SUVs and its unmatched off-road capability.

In recent years, under the FCA leadership, Jeep has set its aspirations high, opening a new chapter in its eighth decade of legendary heritage that represents an extraordinary opportunity to realize the brand’s full potential.

With a clear strategy to expand both its product range and its global presence through localized production in all Regions, Jeep has gone through a profound transformation and exceptional period of development and growth:

  • From a modest automaker to a global powerhouse that sells vehicles in more than 140 countries in the world
  • From a few hundred thousand units a year (338,000 in 2009) to several years of record sales, passing the million-vehicle mark each of the past four years
  • From a manufacturer with four plants in one country to a global carmaker with ten plants in six countries.

2017 marked another outstanding year for the Jeep brand, which sold approximately 1.4 million units worldwide and further expanded its global reach.

Jeep brand heritage, soul and values are part of a proud legacy that resonates around the world with its invitation to live life to the fullest.​
