Jeep has been around since the 1940‘s, when the brand overtook the U.S. army’s colloquialism “jeep” that was used to describe new recruits or vehicles. The brand has changed a lot over the years. However, Jeep’s decade of growth that we care most about takes place in the last 10 years.
Jeep Sales Have Multiplied, But the Recipe Remains the Same
Ten years ago, in 2009, Jeep was considered successful. At the time, their sales reached 338,000 vehicles. This was around the era when the company had four plants in the United States.
Today, Jeep sells its vehicles in more than 140 countries worldwide, and vehicle production takes place in 10 plants throughout six countries. The expansion in facilities makes sense; after all, they’ve surpassed a million sales each of the last four years in a row!
Despite the leaps and bounds throughout Jeep’s decade of growth, their mantra has not wavered in the slightest. As they delve into the 2020 model year, they continue to honor their mission statement, which promotes innovative and purposeful engineering as well as an effort to live life to the fullest.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Is the Culmination of This Success
With all the record-breaking success Jeep has enjoyed in the last decade, it only makes sense that they’d wrap up one chapter in a pristine bow before starting the next. That’s where the 2020 Jeep Gladiator comes in. It’s innovative, unparalleled and as enthusiastic about the road ahead as a Jeep vehicle has ever been. It shows the world that Jeep plans on continuing to grow as a brand. And it shows that they will pave the way for pioneering automotives, pickup trucks included.
