Who Owns Jeep?Last Updated February 5, 2020 | Alison Smith
Several companies have owned the Jeep line over the years, but who owns Jeep today? Jeep is owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, having acquired the division from American Motors Corporation in 1987. While most Jeeps are made in America, there are a few exceptions for certain models that do have production facilities in other countries. However, the Wrangler is fully assembled in America at an FCA factory in Toledo, Ohio.
For those who may have lifted or even stock ride height Jeeps or trucks, you may have experienced the dreaded ‘Death Wobble’ many off-road enthusiasts talk about. Death Wobble is a term coined by Jeep enthusiasts that refers to the rapid back-and-forth movement of your steering components when the front suspension is upset by a bump or void in the road.
Have you just purchased your first Jeep? Ever wonder why Jeep drivers wave to one another? Then this article is for you. The Jeep Wave is a tradition among all Jeep drivers. It's a friendly reminder you drive the ultimate vehicle: the Jeep.
Whether you are already a Jeep Wrangler lover or a new Jeep fan, you might have heard about the Jeep Wrangler JK. In production from 2007 to 2018, the JK Wrangler is one of the most-loved Wranglers ever created. From the release of the four-door version to the addition of the famed 3.6L Pentastar engine in 2012, the JK Wrangler has been making waves in the off-roading community and will continue to do so even after being replaced by the fourth-generation JL Wrangler.
The Jeep Wrangler is built for the outdoors, whether that’s crawling over rocks, racing in the desert, or traversing a creek. All JK and JL Wranglers are Trail Rated, as well as some of Jeep’s other vehicles including certain models of the Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Compass, and Renegade. But what does Trail Rated mean, exactly? Jeep’s Trail Rated vehicles have surpassed an extreme series of tests in five areas: articulation, ground clearance, maneuverability, traction, and water fording.
