De Willys MB and the Ford GPW, both formally called the U.S. Army Truck, 1/4 ton, 4×4, and commonly known as Jeep or jeep, are four-wheel drive military utility vehicles that were manufactured during World War II (from 1941 to 1945) to help mobilize the Allied forces.
The World War II jeep became the first 4-wheel drive car to be manufactured in six-figure numbers. After the war, it evolved into the civilian Jeep CJ models, and inspired both an entire category of recreational 4WDs and several generations of military light utility vehicles.
