Jeep Car Insurance
Jeep is an iconic automobile brand, with a very interesting history and legacy. Headquartered in Ohio, USA, Jeep is regarded as the 1st automobile company to have created an SUV, or Sports Utility Vehicle, ever. In fact, when Willys Jeep was first launched in 1941 during World War 2, the term SUV didn’t even exist. In 1984, Jeep Cherokee (XJ) was launched, which is regarded as the world’s 1st true-blue SUV.
The brand ‘Jeep’ is currently owned by the American-Italian automobile behemoth: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Jeep’s original founders were American Motors Corporation, who sold this automobile company to Chrysler in 1987.

Review of Jeep Cars
Jeep cars were created with military-level precision for serving the American Army during World War 2, and the legacy still continues. With a tough chassis, high ground clearance, and an immensely powerful engine, Jeep’s most cars are meant for all and out adventure trips, wherein you can venture out off-road and experiment with extremely rugged terrain, without any hassles.
The newer variants of Jeep cars in India, have been modified to include a high-tech entertainment quotient, along with automatic transmission and all the bells and whistles, which a modern driver will like to have. But at the end of the day, Jeep cars are known for only one factor: Power, and dependability, no matter what the terrain looks like.
After all, Jeep cars survived World War 2!
