The Jeep was created in the 1940s to serve the battlefields of World War II. It glided into France on D-Day, it slogged through the Bulge. Today you can find Jeeps cruising the Jersey shore, or parked in someone’s garage next to a Mercedes-Benz S-class. But it still remains true to its military roots. It’s still—defiantly—the most American vehicle of all time. So why does this anachronistic, out-of-step vehicle still sell so well? In this clip from Car Show! With Eddie Alterman, a history of the Jeep, and a theory on why it’s so enduring.
