Jeep 4×4 Day

Jeep 4×4 Day is a holiday that celebrates the vehicle of the same name and is observed on April 4th (or 4/4) every year. This is a holiday when people are encouraged to pack up a Jeep and head out to the great outdoors to have themselves an adventure.

Of course, if a person doesn’t own or have access to a Jeep, then that might be a little bit difficult, but let’s not concern ourselves too much with that little fact. Instead, let’s revel in the joy of enjoying a vehicle that can handle rocky terrain, crossing shallow creeks, or even slogging through muddy trails.

The History of Jeep 4×4 Day

It should be no surprise to anyone that Jeep invented this holiday back in 2015. After all, what’s a better way of selling Jeeps than creating a whole holiday around Jeeps? It has been celebrated by many Jeep owners over the past few years, so it must have worked to a certain extent.

Amazing Facts About Jeeps

We had to do quite a lot of research to write about Jeep 4×4 Day, and we came across quite a few facts about these vehicles that we thought were pretty interesting. So we packed them up and listed them below for everyone reading this today to enjoy.

  • With the possible involvement of the U.S. in WWII becoming evident, the government asked for bids on a three-seat, four-wheel drive vehicle.
  • The winning bid was by a company called Bantam. A company that completed the design of the vehicle in just two days.
  • Bantam didn’t have the capabilities to produce the volume of Jeeps needed, so Willys and Ford were brought in to manufacture them.

Observing Jeep 4×4 Day

On this day, people who own a Jeep may want to pack up some supplies in it and head out on a day trip or some other adventure. For people who don’t own a Jeep, they can go on a trip with a friend or family member who might own one. Or, if they’re looking to buy a new vehicle, they can always take the time to consider buying a Jeep on this holiday.
