2000s

The radical 2003 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon was the most capable vehicle ever produced by the Jeep Brand. A new four-door Wrangler took the industry by storm. The Compass and Patriot were the first Jeep Brand vehicles to reach into the small cross-utility segment.

THE JEEP® BRAND LINEUP GROWS

The merger of Daimler-Benz and Chrysler in 1998 started to show the fruits of collaboration with the introduction of a number of new Jeep® Brand vehicles. In 2001, a new Jeep® Cherokee (KJ) replaced the long-lived Cherokee (XJ). A seven-passenger Jeep Commander was introduced in 2006. The Jeep Compass and Patriot (MK) and Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited (JK) were all introduced in 2007. A new Jeep Cherokee (KK) was introduced in 2008. The parent company Chrysler Group LLC entered into a global alliance with Fiat SpA in 2009.
