Probably the oldest four-wheel drive company in mass production, the first Jeeps were produced specifically for military supply. They are the Grand-Daddy of all SUV producers! No one really knows where the name Jeep comes from, but one of the more interesting theories is that the vehicle was named after a cartoon character in Popeye who was called “Eugene the Jeep”. This character was drawn just a few years before the first Jeeps were produced.

The very first Jeep was designed by Karl Probst after a desperate request from the American Government when it was about to enter World War II, to find a replacement for the model T’s it was currently using. The designs were drawn, costed and the proposal submitted, in two days flat!
