"The Jeep brand is a classic. Its ability to literally own the value of patriotism seems timeless. For the 20 years Brand Keys has conducted the Most Patriotic Brands survey, Jeep has been rated No. 1 by consumers," said Robert Passikoff, president and founder of Brand Keys. "That value, 'patriotism,' is the emotional part of decision-making that accounts for an enormous portion of why consumers have emotionally engaged with the brand. Jeep resonates a degree of allegiance consumers recognize, appreciate and, most importantly, act upon when making a purchase decision. Consumers know there's a difference between wrapping yourself in the flag and being a brand people believe has actually earned that right. Jeep earned it, owns it, and we congratulate them again this year."

The assessments evaluate brand resonance for the single value of patriotism, and the Jeep brand was identified as the best for meeting today's patriotism challenges.
"The Jeep brand is incredibly proud of its military heritage with origins that date back to 1941 – the birth of an iconic 4x4-capable vehicle the U.S. Army specifically requested," said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. "The Jeep brand has become synonymous around the world for outdoor adventure and freedom, and being recognized as America's most patriotic brand for two decades running is a testament to our passionate Jeep community and to all those who protect our independence."
