MS Dhoni is widely regarded as one of the greatest Indian cricketers in recent times. The 'Captain Cool' helped the country win the 2007 ICC T20 World Cup and the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. MS Dhoni enthralled millions of cricket fans with his exceptional talent on the field, be it as a wicketkeeper or batsman. He continues to remain one of the most popular cricketers in India to this day. Besides cricket though, MS Dhoni has been passionate about cars and bikes. Over the years, MS Dhoni has maintained a collection of cars. Recently, the former India skipper was pictured with a 1999 Nissan Jonga jeep at a petrol pump near his home on Sunday.
The Nissan Jonga was a jeep built for the Indian Army. Jonga stands for Jabalpur Ordnance And Guncarriage Assembly and is essentially a second-generation Nissan Patrol, one of the most iconic SUVs sold abroad. While the Jonga was very popular with the Indian Army, it was sold to consumers only from 1996 to 1999. MS Dhoni recently purchased his Jonga, which was built in 1999.

The veteran cricketer's love for Indian Army is also a known fact ❤️

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a five-seater SUV from Jeep, and it is sold in India. The Trackhawk variant is the most powerful version of the Grand Cherokee, and it is the fastest mass-production SUV in the world. The Trackhawk has a 6.2-litre HEMI V8 engine that produces 707 horsepower. MS Dhoni's personal Trackhawk is the first and only model of its kind in India, as Jeep India does not officially sell it in right-hand-drive.
The Hummer H2 barely needs any introduction. It is considered to be a very brash and brawny SUV and was built from 2003 to 2010 when the Hummer brand was discontinued. The Hummer H2 came with a 6.2-litre V8 engine and seating for five. Many Hummer H2s were imported to India, including MS Dhoni's own, which he still owns.
