Marcy Kaptur Congratulates Jeep on Being Named America's 'Most Patriotic' Brand
TOLEDO (July 3) – The naming of Jeep as America's “most patriotic brand” is a well-deserved honor, said Congresswoman Kaptur.
“Toledo has been the home of Jeep since General George Marshall realized our troops in World War II needed a ‘general purpose,’ or ‘GP’ vehicle,” Congresswoman Kaptur said.
“It will come as no surprise to generations of workers in Toledo that Jeep is the ‘most patriotic’ brand. It’s really what we’re all about as a community.”
Jeep was named “the most patriotic brand” in a survey conducted by Brand Keys, a New York research firm, beating out such iconic brands as Coca-Cola, Hershey’s, and Disney.
Kaptur noted that the branding results were released one day after Chrysler reported that sales of the Toledo-made Jeep Wrangler climbed 12 percent last month.
