Prior to - and during - World War 2, 'JEEP' was used to generically signify any 4x4 light vehicle - until Willys-Overland trademarked the name in 1950.
There are a total of [ 25 ] JEEP Vehicles & Related entries in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by initial year of service descending. Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator.
Note that many consider the last classic World War 2-related jeep to be the Willys-Overland / Kaiser-Jeep M38 as the M151 was of a Ford design and largely a new vehicle altogether. Additionally, global counterparts of the jeep existed in both the inventories of Japan and Germany during World War 2 and are appropriately listed here for comparison. The end of the jeep line for the American military came with the arrival of the AM General HUMVEE multi-purpose 4x4 vehicle.
