It is an SUV, but in some technical manuals the wrangler is classified as a truck. Jeep, truck, or SUV all work, in that order for me personally.

It’s never a car.

Sometimes I call it my Jeep, sometimes I call it my truck, and sometimes I call her darling haha.
I've never had the inclination to call it my car for sure but to each their own.

Which is ironic because they are typically the ones who go on and on about your liberal citizens being "snowflakes", yet they are so easily offended by what someone else calls the vehicle they drive.
I'm dying to know how you made that connection.

Just got my JLU Sport last week. I was dropping off my older son at school and one of the administrators who helps unload kids in the morning says “oh, I love your new car!”

My 4-year-old who is not being dropped off and is still strapped in is yelling at the top of his lungs “IT’S NOT A CAR! IT’S NOT A CAR! IT’S A JEEP!!”

He’s pretty wise for 4.

You have to remember that "car" is short for "carrier", and the original Jeep was specifically designed to be a personnel carrier for the war effort.

Therefore, a Jeep is technically a car.

Having said that, in today's world semantics have changed so now we all think of cars as little two wheel drive coupes and sedans only.
I'm thinking I would have gotten an Article 15 if I referred to my hmmwv as a car! At the very least, something physical involving muscle failure :swear:

No need to make this political...it isn't about liberals or conservatives, age or judging others, like you just did. It is simply about how a group of people with the Jeep in common refer to it. Wow.

I call it a Jeep. It's close to being a SUV though. Sometimes I accidentally refer to it as a car. Good thing I dont like cats

I use the term “car” when referring to vehicles generically.
As in “how many cars do you own?”.
“I own 3, a truck, a Jeep, and a minivan”.

Much easier than saying “automobile”.

Honest question - wasn't the Jeep designed to be a general purpose vehicle (GP = Jeep) and not just a personal carrier? I've seen versions with lots of other uses besides passenger carry.

That would mean that technically a Jeep is a GP is a Jeep.
Just remember that :"JEEP" is an acronym: J-ust E-mpty E-very P-ocket
