1991 Jeep grand wagoneer for sale
 
 
Fast Facts:

  • The Grand Wagoneer was the biggest, most luxurious, most powerful, and most expensive mass produced 4WD vehicle in the world when it was released in 1984. The average annual income of Grand Wagoneer buyers exceeded $100,000 (in 1990 money), making them Chrysler’s most affluent customers
  • This was the full size, upscale version of the Jeep XJ Cherokee. The entire interior was covered in either carpet or leather
  • Featured Selec-Trac full time 4WD (could switch from 2WD to 4WD with the flick of a switch) and a 5,000 lb towing capacity. Base price was about the same as a Corvette
  • Ride quality was plush thanks to a comfort oriented suspension specially engineered for the Grand Wagoneer, which included multi-leaf springs, stabilizer bars, front and rear track bars, and gas shock absorbers
  • The Grand Wagoneer’s powertrain was outdated even for its time, and it was one of the last vehicles sold in the U.S with a carburetor. The AMC designed V8 was paired with a 727 3spd auto from Chrysler
  • Despite the 28 yr old design (dates back to 1963 – one of Jeep’s longest running production models), the Grand Wagoneer sold well due to its character, lack of competition, V8 power, and its swanky image within society. Essentially, it was the Mercedes G-Wagon of America
  • Even Chrysler, who acquired Jeep in 1987, left the Grand Wagoneer’s aging platform mostly untouched. This is because the Grand Wagoneer had an established customer base, as well as a fat profit margin of $5k to $6k per car (in 1987 money)
  • All good things must come to an end, however. Being one of the last true gas guzzlers (11 MPG), the Grand Wagoneer would have required extensive engineering improvements to comply with 1993 Federal safety laws. It may have been worth the investment, but sales dipped to below 1000 units a month (and declining) during its final years due to lack of customer interest and increased competition
Key Model Year Changes:

  • Final year of the Grand Wagoneer (SJ)
  • 1989-91 are generally grouped together in terms of model year changes (and desirability). Fit and finish was improved during these years
  • For ’89-’91, Chrysler introduced an electrocoat primer for a more complete coverage of rust proofing. Paint finish is now of the modern 2 stage base/clearcoat type. The wood siding was upgraded, and the wheels are redesigned
  • ’89-’91 models also received an updated A/C compressor that was no longer prone to leaking. In addition, they received the functional overhead console from Chrysler’s minivans, which included a compass, outside temp readings, and more
  • ’89-’91 models can usually be identified by a unique (optional) rear window wiper assembly
  • 1987 and newer models were sold under Chrysler ownership (vs AMC for the previous years)
