The Jeep brand, renowned for its durable vehicles since World War II, has experienced several ownership transitions since its inception. Originally produced by Willys Overland, the first CJ models emerged shortly after the war. Willys merged with Kaiser Motors in 1953, forming Kaiser Jeep, which was later acquired by American Motors Corporation in 1970. In 1987, Chrysler purchased Jeep from AMC, and Chrysler is now a part of Stellantis. During Chrysler's stewardship, the Jeep lineup has been enhanced with modern features including airbags, Bluetooth sound systems, and anti-lock braking systems.
