About This Quiz

Are you ready for a four-wheelin' adventure of a quiz? For decades now, no vehicle has been more identified with the off-road, backwoods adventurer than Jeep. If you go up to the mountains, you will rarely find a hunting lodge, ski lodge or other outdoorsy sort of business without at least one well-worn, trusty Jeep product "on staff."  They haul trailers full of canoes, loads of camping equipment, supplies for an outdoor chili cookoff, and (of course) several cases of beer for hunting expeditions and just about anything else you can imagine.

For a lot of us, our first encounter with the World of Jeep came through movies and TV shows. The Baby Boomers grew up with John Wayne war movies, where the redoubtable Willys Jeep was the all-purpose transport that hauled everything from generals to guns. In the '70s and '80s, "M*A*S*H" had numerous plot lines that starred Jeeps, from Hawkeye tearing through the brush to deliver medical supplies (and getting shot in the process) to malfunctioning Jeeps stranding various guest stars in camp with emergencies that required a half-hour of TV time to solve.

Whether your experience with Jeep ends with the large and small screen or whether you're a hardcore adventurer, see how well can you identify the many faces of this classic American transport.

Jeep Wagoneer
The first luxury 4x4 sold by Jeep, Wagoneers were produced for a period of 28 years, from 1963 to 1991. Even though this was a massive vehicle, the 4x4 performed admirably off-road and even won the Sno*Drift Rally of 1974.

All-terrain 2020 Jeep Wrangler Arguably the most recognizable model Jeep has ever produced, can you name this off-road masterpiece?
Jeep Wagoneer
Jeep Wrangler
Regarded as one of the best off-roaders ever produced by Jeep, the Wrangler's compact nature means it can often go where bigger off-roaders can’t. Those tucked away, tight trails – this is where the Wrangler will excel. It offers excellent tires, a six-speed gearbox with a 4:1 transfer case and an inline-six engine capable of producing all the torque you will ever need.

Jeep CJ-7 This model was produced sporadically from the '40s-'80s. Which version is this?
Willys Military Jeep
Jeep Compass
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep CJ-7
Released between 1976 and 1986, Jeep’s CJ-7 was one of the most popular off-roaders at the time. It had a large, 93.5-inch wheelbase which coupled with a three-speed gearbox meant the Jeep went places other 4x4’s had trouble getting to. The top of the line CJ-7 was powered by a 304 cubic inch V8.

Jeep Hurricane This vehicle never made it to production, but it wowed us regardless. What is it?
Jeep Liberty Sport
Willys Military Jeep
Jeep Hurricane
This Jeep concept vehicle was unveiled in 2005 at the North American International Auto Show. The basic premise with the Hurricane was a lightweight recreation vehicle seating two. The one-piece body was constructed out of carbon fiber, while it also featured a unique four-wheel steering system from Chrysler. The Hurricane, which has never been put into production, is powered by two 5.7-liter, 8-cylinder HEMI engines.

Jeep FC-150 Can you name this truck produced by Willys Motors?
Jeep CJ-7
Willys Military Jeep
Jeep FC-150
Although its design (effectively brick-shaped) only allowed a top speed of 65mph, the FC-150 certainly is something to behold. Produced between 1956-1965 and built on the same wheelbase as the CJ-5, the FC-150 looked far bigger thanks to the massive cab put on top of it. The FC-150 handled well, gave an excellent view of surroundings and was more than capable off-road.
