The meaning is the same as in English.
Although the Toyota Jeep BJ's large-displacement engine assured its superiority performance, the National Police Reserve ended up choosing the Mitsubishi Jeep (a licensed production version of the North American Willys Jeep) because the latter had a more extensive track record. Accordingly, the Toyota Jeep was converted for civilian use and went into volume production in 1953.
As the Jeep name was a trade mark of Willys-Overland Motors, Toyota changed the vehicle name to the Land Cruiser in June 1954.
