The Jeep brand is enjoying success few automakers could hope to rival. In 2014, Jeep sold 1 million units; just four years later, that nearly doubled to around 1.9 million. Part of that success can be credited to branding — the name Jeep has long been synonymous with fun, cool, and capable off-road vehicles that are as awesome on the trail as they are comfortable on the highway. The versatile Jeep is an American original that's steeped in history, and after nearly 80 years since the Army examined the world's first Jeep prototype, the brand is surrounded by folklore, legend, myth, and mystery.
