Jeep was a manufacturer of largely off-road vehicles. It was still producing models by 2015.
On October 25, 1985, a skateboarding Marty McFly grabbed onto the back of a Jeep CJ-7 — the driver of which was wearing a Mountain Dew baseball cap — to reach Hill Valley High School after transferring from a Ford pickup truck.
Behind the scenes
- The Jeep CJ-7 was manufactured from 1976 to 1986.
- The Jeep that lands on Second Street in 2015 was a modified Jeep Wrangler YJ, which was produced in the United States and Canada from 1986 to 1995.
- American Motors stopped producing the Jeep Wrangler YJ in 1995, something the movie makers obviously did not foresee.
- As far as is known, Jeep have no plans to produce a flying model in the foreseeable future.
