Jeep® Is Bringing Back The Jeepster Name In Its Latest Special Edition:

Renegade Model Will Carry Iconic Jeep Nameplate For Its Latest Edition...

The Jeep® brand is bringing back the Jeepster nameplate. Jeep diehards might remember that the original Jeepster was produced from 1948 to 1950 and was developed to fill in a gap in the brand’s lineup left open from the passenger car segment. About 20,000 of the original Jeepster vehicles were made. Then in 1966, the brand introduced the C-101 Jeepster Commando, that vehicle held the Jeepster nameplate until 1972. The nameplate was then adopted for a 1998 concept vehicle, called the Jeep Jeepster, which we talked about the other day.
