Jeeps through the years

Jeep is owned by Chrysler, which, along with Ford and General Motors, is one of the U.S. biggest automakers. The company was founded in 1925 when Walter P. Chrysler absorbed the deteriorating Maxwell Motor Company into the Chrysler Corporation. The Jeep brand debuted in 1941 with military off-road vehicles, and expanded production to include civilian vehicles in 1945.
