Meaning and History
Originally, “Jeep” manufactured military cars so that first it did not have any logo. The history of the Jeep company dates back far to the past.
In 1938, the US Army decided to replace a traditional sidecar motorcycle and create a new mobile transport vehicle. On the 22nd of December, 1939, the Willys Overland company provided the first drawings of the car, which in the future would be known under the name of Jeep all over the world. The car had to be powerful, maneuverable and easy.
The name Jeep was registered in 1950 as an international trademark.
Interesting is the fact that the logo was never placed on the car itself. Jeep vehicles have only the word Jeep on them, and the logo is used mainly for advertising and marketing purposes.
1941 – 1945
1945 – 1963
1963 – 1970
The thing resembling the Jeep logo appeared in 1963: it was placed in the center of steering wheels of car models Wagoneer and Gladiator. It was the same time when the company changed the name from Willys Motors to Keizer Jeep, and Jeep was separated into the autonomous brand. Then, the circle of 2 quarters of gold and 2 quarters of red with the name Jeep in the middle became the logo.

Jeep Wrangler logo
The compact 4-wheel drive off-road vehicle is considered a descendant of the original World War II model Willys MB. However, AMC and Chrysler have never directly stated that it is true. The Jeep Wrangler logo is simple and aggressive, which seems quite reasonable, taking into consideration the vehicle’s roots and exterior. The letters in the word “Wrangler” “stick” to each other, so, in fact, there is only one gap within the word (after the letter “g”)
