Jeep J8 MPV puts company ‘back in action’

The first vehicle from Jeep to be made eligible for active military service has been unveiled.

Marking a return for the firm to cars that suit both civilian and government needs, the model is an enhancement of the all-new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Powered by a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine and 400 nm of torque, the firm added that up to 3,500 kg can be towed if required.

The vehicle harks back to the 1940s, when Jeep first reported for duty with the military.

"Jeep vehicles made their original debut in 1941 … and have built their reputation with more than 65 years as the world’s benchmark for off-road capability and versatility for civilian and military vehicles," the firm added.

While Jeep is a company that makes sport utility vehicles, the actual word has become synonymous with the type of car.
