During WWII, the US Army needed 4WD reconnaissance vehicles and asked for designs from 135 companies. American Bantam Car Company and Willy-Overland replied to the request. Willy-Overland dropped out due to the imposed time limit. American Bantam Car Company, despite being bankrupt, created a design with the help of Karl Probst, a talented engineer from Detroit. The original plan was known as Bantam Reconnaissance Car (BRC). However, the American Bantam Car Company was too small to meet the demands of the Army. So the Army gave the design to Ford and Willys to make the same vehicle. Each of these companies created their variations on the original. So there were three designs - Bantam BRC, Ford GP, and Willys MA. The Willys version would become the standard "Jeep" design, and the Jeep became a very capable military vehicle. Over the years, the Jeep brand has gone through multiple owners. Currently, FIAT-Chrysler Automobile or FCA US LLC owns the name. Models like Compass, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, and Patriot are sold under the Jeep banner.
