Over the last few years, ever since Jeep made its entry into the Indian Auto market, everyone has been raving about it. Not just you and me, Jeep has been a celebrity favourite as well. Historically, the brand has had various connections with movie stars, sportspersons and musicians in the West, and its exciting to see the same happening in India as well as the iconic brand continues to penetrate deeper into the Indian markets. The SUV has become the ride of choice for high-profile businessmen and celebrities alike. After all, who wouldn’t want to own an all-American, badass vehicle like the Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Jeep Compass.
