A clever animation has detailed the evolution of American carmaker, Jeep.

Beginning in the 1940s with the Willys Jeep, the timeline spans the proceeding 75 years up until the most recent Grand Cherokee.

In the 1960s, the Forward Control and Wagoneer made an entrance, before the Jeep Honcho featured in the 1970s.

Styling cues in the ‘70s also harked back to three decades previously, with the Jeep CJ-7 model.

The 1980s saw the Cherokee XJ – the forerunner to today’s Cherokee and Grand Cherokee models.

Meanwhile, the Wrangler was also introduced in 1980, being further developed the following decade.

In the 1990s, the Grand Cherokee made its debut, followed by an upgraded model in the 2000s.

The Jeep Cherokee made its return in the 2000s, while the Renegade became the new kid on the block on its release last year.

And now, in 2016, Jeep has revealed the 75th anniversary Wrangler. Based on the Overland model, it boasts several key differences, including unique exterior styling and part-leather interiors.

One aspect that features across all models, however, is Jeep’s iconic grille, which is most commonly seen in the seven bar format.
