New and Used Owner Type Jeep for Sale Philippines
The Owner Type Jeep, or locally coined “Jeepney”, is a modified passenger type vehicle based on the military jeeps used in World War II. This four to five passenger car is often locally assembled by private companies using complete knock down vehicles (CKD) and spare parts. In the Philippines, these vehicles are used non-commercially and are often utilized as a family service vehicle.
Local assemblers of these types of vehicle are often grouped into two types of builders- backyard manufacturers who assemble one unit at a time and volume manufacturers. Both use an assortment of die-stamped pieces of surplus Japanese car parts and salvaged chassis from commercial vehicle brands such as Mitsubishi Fuso.
The “Jeepney” is the most iconic vehicle that can only be found in the Philippines today. Its designs have also become diversified depending upon the region, with some assemblers in other parts of the Philippines using the front fascia and chassis of sedans and pickups. For example, some owner type jeeps for sale in Nueva Ecija have fronts that resemble AUVs like the Toyota Tamaraw and the Honda CR-V, while those in Cebu have flat-nosed jeeps taken from surplus Suzuki minivans and Isuzu Elf trucks.
Today, the Owner Type Jeep appeals to buyers who are looking for configurable body type vehicles, no-frill features, affordable/economic price, and easily available spare parts.
