Out of the four jeep ads this was the only good one.

Forced. Very 80´s and an awfull philosophy if you´re not from US.

Agreed. But I guess it speaks to their target group.

The headline is so wrong but the art direction is so cool.

I don't see what is wrong with the line. As everyone knows Jeeps were created for the military (Jeep is some sort of abbreviation of GP which stands for General Purpose), so the history of the car is tightly connected to the army. The line is obviously referring to the car, and to say that "there is a soldier in everyone", it's just a way to metaphorically express that every Jeep vehicle is as strong, dependable and brave as any good soldier (from whatever army, not only the US).
As for the art direction, it is pretty conceptual and simple. If conceptual and simple is a passé thing that belongs to the 80s, please enlighten me here. I wish photography had been more polished and the objects didn't look so flat. Other than that, it's a pretty nice piece.

It should have been other items; car keys, chewing gum, sunglasses, map ect (things you take driving), lined up as if by a solider...
